I've visited the Flying Dog a couple of times now and I'm a fan.

Beers: they have 9 taps, one of which is always Bud Light. However, the other 8 are good quality and rotate frequently. Tonight's draft selections were: ST Creme Brulee, DFH Namaste, Ithaca Flower Power, Heavy Seas Loose Cannon, Jack's Abby Octoberfest, Mayflower Porter, Sam's Octoberfest. and Shipyard Pumpkinhead. Not all winners, but an excellent effort to cater to craft beer lovers. Shaker pints were priced at $5.50-6.00, with the high ABV beers served in 12oz. wine glasses (Namaste was $8-ouch!). They also had about 50 bottles available, with about 35 of those being pretty crafty.

The food was quite good. A buffalo chicken bar-style pizza was tasty, the chicken croquettes were yummy and the soups and dinner-sized salads were enjoyable. Prices were reasonable for both beers and food.

The bartenders are all very friendly, yet a few of them are not yet educated on the beer selections, so you may not get any help ordering an unfamiliar brew (unless you're talking to Julie, who seems to be a bit of a beer geek herself). The crowd is made up of reasonably well-behaved locals and a few beer nerds. While lots of locals were drinking Buds, Coronas and mixed drinks, plenty of better beer was being served on a fairly busy Friday evening, too, so there's hope. Service was attentive and quick.

I give the Flying Dog a lot of credit for bringing craft beer into a VERY blue-collar, BMC-centric area and executing the concept pretty well. Sure, they are not a sheik, high-end Boston beer bar with 30 rare taps and 50 obscure Belgian bottles, but for this neck of the wood they are a welcome addition to the bar scene.

My girlfriend and I stumbled into this place as we were in the area for other reasons. Their marque advertised craft beers so we made it a point to stop on our way back out of town. A relatively new place, the Flying Dog Bar & Grill is trying to make it as a new beer bar in the Raynham/Taunton area. The place carries a pretty good selection of beers, 12 taps and a good selection of bottles. Although friendly, I think the bartenders need to become a bit more knowledgeable about their beers. Although a bit out of the way for us, we will make it a point to support the Flying Dog whenever we can.
