Flying Fish Brewing Company, Somerdale, NJ

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 Dewey Beer Company in Dewey Beach, Delaware.  Dinner was great – a delicious local crab cake sandwich.  The plaintain nachos were also delicious with chorizo as an appetizer.  When I asked for a flight little did I know that I was getting EIGHT beers.  Wow.  I couldn’t begin to comment on them all.  Let me start by saying the Summer Ale was absolutely delicious – a light grapefruity summer beer.  The pale ale and IPA were also very good.  The saison was wonderful.  and after that I think I lost track of my tastebuds, memory and other senses.  In all I had a great meal and experience at the Dewey Beer Company.  Stop in if you have a chance.

I did a double-take at Fremont Brewing when I saw the ice box.  Wow.  A blast from the past.  Very cool!  No pun intended.  I stopped in for a beer and enjoyed the Cask Summer Ale with the taste of juniper.  Very nice.  The Rye Saison was spicy as I like it.  Pilsner was refreshing.  In all, some great beers and a great place to enjoy them.
