NJ350-Bottled
NJ350-LabeledFlying Fish Brewing’s NJ350 is ever so close to your pint glass.

The English stock ale, Flying Fish’s salute to New Jersey’s 350th anniversary, hits the taps and store shelves next month.

On Thursday, the crew at the Somerdale brewery began the first of two days of labeling case after case of 750 ml bottles. (The beer will be available in draft, too.) After that, it goes on the trucks and out to distributors, then to you.

The 7.5% ABV beer was brewed at the start of March, using Cluster, Simcoe and Centennial hops, English malts and blackstrap molasses. The Cluster hops are a nod to the first U.S. hop cultivar, while Simcoe and Centennial give the beer pine aromas, a hat-tip to New Jersey’s Pinelands.

 

Here’s one from the Beer-Stained Letter video archive, a piece from 2008.

That year, Weyerbacher Brewing responded to a hop shortage by taking a shot at growing an acre of hops in northeast Pennsylvania.

The Easton, Pa., brewery got some key knowledge-base assistance from Snyder Farm in Hunterdon County, the Rutgers University research farm that did some hop-growing trials back in the late 1990s. Snyder was thus able to offer Weyerbacher some guidance on its hops project.

Weyerbacher reaped a small, but still impressive, haul in August 2008 that went straight into a fresh-hop harvest ale. 

 

A glimpse at Flying Fish's bottling line, the largest craft beer bottling line in the state.
