I stopped in at Three 3’s Brewing Company in Hammonton, New Jersey. I really enjoyed their beers. LOVED the Blueberry Saison. Local blueberries in local beer. CANNOT improve on that. Also loved the Chocolate Raspberry Stout. Great beers!
I stopped in at Vinyl Brewing Company in Hammonton, NJ with industry colleagues. We each enjoyed a flight and some tasters. Everything I tasted I enjoyed. Disrupt the Paradigm Vanilla Porter is delicious (I love vanilla flavor). We all enjoyed each of the beers we tried.
I stopped in at Tun Tavern in Atlantic City for a late snack and beer. Their fried Brussels spouts were tasty and this flight went well with them. The Citra Crush and South Pacific Hop IPA were both nice IPAs. Not too hoppy and very easy to drink. And, both very pairable with a meal.
I stopped in at Garden State Beer Company in Galloway, NJ to try their beers. The fruit inspired options seemed to be calling to me. The Cranberry Ale and the Blue Jersey American Wheat both had just the right amount of fruit flavor without being overpowering. Tasty beers.
I stopped at Flying Fish Brewing Company in Somerdale, New Jersey. I have been wanting to stop here for quite a while now. Stopping was pretty easy – not too far from the New Jersey Turnpike on my way home from a business trip. I had learned recently that Flying Fish Brewing Company is owned by a Drexel grad and being a Drexel grad myself this even intensified my interest.
I enjoyed the feel of the tap room. There were quite a number of people there plus some outside. The small beer/merchandise store is conveniently located behind the bar. This made it that much easier to purchase beer to bring home.
I definitely had to try the Farm House Summer Ale and the Daylight Savings IPA. Both delicious. Also the Red Fish is a tasty Red Ale. I brought some of each of these home with me.
A dear friend advocates for ALS and I simply had to try the Tour De Fish benefitting research to cure this terrible disease. What a great ale for the Ales for ALS program. I liked it so much that I filled my travel growler with it and enjoyed it with my family as soon as I got home.
I stopped in at Kane Brewing Company in Ocean, New Jersey. I really enjoyed a tasting flight of their beers. Single Fin Belgian Blonde was tasty. Hop Lab Citra was perhaps my favorite. It is a fresh pale ale, crisp and slightly hoppy. Head High is a solid IPA and Overhead is a solid Double IPA. Neither too hoppy. I love what these guys are doing with hops and since I stop for hops I was really happy/hoppy at Kane Brewing!
I stopped in at Beach Haus Brewery in Belmar, New Jersey. For being a beach brewery they have a real breadth of beer styles including “darker, heavier” styles I would most commonly associate with winter and cold weather. And, these styles are available year round. Parade Day Irish Coffee Stout is a delicious coffee stout. I was very impressed with the easy-drinking Grapefruit Radler. The Strawberry Radler was tasty but felt more like a wine cooler. The beer I enjoyed the most, and perhaps their best beer, was the High Side Blonde Ale. It was fresh, complex, easy drinking and delicious. I liked it so much that I bought a six-pack to bring home to enjoy later.
