Flying Dog Brewery Unveils High-ABV Killer Hard Tea

Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick, Maryland has announced the release of a new hard iced tea called Killer Hard Tea. Full details are below.

Frederick, Md. – Grab life by the tea bags this week and pick up Killer Hard Tea - the latest Gonzo Drinks release from Flying Dog Brewery.

Handcrafted and brewed with attitude, Killer is the next level in hard teas. Effervescent and packed with bold flavors, Killer Hard Tea is the perfect companion to celebrate all the big (and not so big) wins in life. Turning suffocating meetings at the office into just an email, putting together shockingly fashionable outfits that make heads turn, remembering which day of the week is “recycling day” and standing up to your neighbor who is in fact stealing your packages - all examples of someone killing it, if only for a moment. And now that moment has a drink.

“Killer Hard Tea is a drink for people who love dominating life,” said Ben Savage, Chief Marketing Officer at Flying Dog Brewery. “Whether it’s crushing it every day at work, home, vacation, parenting, entertaining, climbing rocks, skipping rocks, or collecting rocks. It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you kill it.”

Arriving just in time for Thanksgiving, and those colorful conversations with the extended family, Killer Hard Tea hits shelves in 12 packs of 12 oz cans exclusively in Maryland beginning the week of November 14. Killer Hard Tea will launch beyond Maryland beginning in January 2023, just in time for the best parts of winter – snowball fights, licking flagpoles, making love by the fire, or remembering whether to defrost your windshield with hot or cold air.

How does Killer Hard Tea slay other teas?

  • Unrestrained Flavor
    Smooth black tea and bright pops of lemon jump out of the can to ignite your mouth hole and deliver expectation-exceeding levels of refreshment.
  • Hint of Carbonation
    Sneaky bubbles dive in deep to tickle your ribcage and enhance the sipping experience, setting this tea apart from its competitors.
  • Amped Up ABV

This ain’t your Nana’s tea party so put your pinkies down. Killer Hard Tea comes with an explosive 8% ABV, putting the tea back in party.

  • Craft Attitude
    30+ years of independent craft brewing experience from the unapologetic, risk-taking brewery that continues to Cut the Leash and smash expectations.

Killer Hard Tea is the first solo product offering from Flying Dog’s new “beyond beer” division, Gonzo Drinks. Driven by bold brand personalities, unexpected flavors and unapologetic ABVs, Gonzo Drinks is leveraging 30+ years of brewing experience and innovation to create a collection of delicious craft drinks that dismantle the status quo in adult beverage industry.
