Flying Dog, the US craft brewer, has unveiled plans to to build a new brewery and hospitality venue focussing on experimental beers. 

The Maryland-based company, the US's 33 biggest craft brewer by volume, said the 'Farmworks Brewery' site will include a 15-barrel brewhouse, cellar, coolship, tasting room and hospitality area, along with a barrel-aging and sour beer facility. The five-acre property, in neighbouring Virginia, is due to open next summer. 

The site will focus on producing “highly-experimental beers”, the company said. Total spend on the project was not disclosed. 

It follows plans announced last month to build a hop farm - Lucketts Mill Hopworks - which will be operated by Organarchy Hops, but supply Farmworks, as well as other regional breweries. Both Lucketts Mill and Farmworks Brewery will be on the site of Shadow Farm. 

Matt Brophy, Flying Dog's brewmaster, said: “Agriculture is such an important part of brewing, and having access to the resources at Shadow Farm will allow us the freedom to experiment and innovate with a whole new collection of beer styles. It’s a unique setting, and we plan on brewing some pretty unique beers.”
