Flying Dog has had a long history with Hunter S. Thompson and frequent artistic collaborator and Ralph Steadman (who provides the artwork for Flying Dog brews). So it was a rather easy choice to pair Flying Dog's Tap Takeover with Thompson and Steadman's iconic work from FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS.  The Alamo will bring Terry Gilliams mad creation and Flying Dog will take over the taps with some brewhouse small batch rarity beers.

When a writing assignment lands journalist Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and sidekick Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) in Las Vegas, they decide to make it the ultimate business trip. But before long, business is forgotten and trip has become the key word. Fueled by a suitcase full of mind-bending pharmaceuticals, Duke and Gonzo set off on a fast and furious ride through nonstop neon, surreal surroundings and a crew of the craziest characters ever (including cameo appearances by Cameron Diaz, Christina Ricci, Gary Busey and many others). But no matter where misadventure leads them, Duke and Gonzo discover that sometimes going too far is the only way to go. Capturing the insane madness of Hunter S. Thompson's literary classic was the challenge that director Terry Gilliam (12 Monkeys) openly embraced. Critics hailed it as: "Mindblowing. Bizarre. Outrageous. Wild." Buy the ticket. Take the ride!
