Flying Fish Brewery will pay homage to New Jersey history with NJ350 Anniversary Ale. Long before the state was named, a Dutch brewery resided in modern day Hoboken.
NJ350 Anniversary Ale is an English Stock Ale brewed with molasses.
English pale malts and flaked barley meld with blackstrap molasses for a hearty and complex malt flavor. For hops, we used Cluster, the first hop cultivated in the US. The beer finishes with the more modern Simcoe and Centennial. The latter give a deep piney flavor and aroma, a nod to a state treasure – the Pine Barrens.

Harpoon Brewery’s Imperial Pumpkin has hit the shelves. This new offering from Harpoon started as a test batch of a porter with pumpkin puree from UFO Pumpkin added. It turned out to be pretty darn good, warranting a larger release this year.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Pumpkin, Molasses, Cinnamon, Nutmeg)
Availability: 22oz bombers. Limited Draft.
Last fall our brewers were improvising a new beer in our 10-barrel kettle. We had some fresh pumpkin puree leftover from a recent brew of our UFO Pumpkin, so the brewers threw that in the kettle with a bit of molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg, and some roasted malts. It turned out to be delicious, so we thought we’d share it with everyone. – See more at: http://www.harpoonbrewery.com/beer/1663/Imperial-Pumpkin#sthash.344kkfzD.dpuf

Asheville Brewing Company and Oskar Blues Brewery have just created a new North Carolina collaboration brew. It is the first by Oskar Blues since moving into Brevard, NC. The beer? An imperial coffee brown ale brewed with a smidge of molasses. The beer was brewed at Asheville Brewing. They want help naming the beer. Here’s some hints…
Think Alabama/Southern roots (both Doug Riley and DaleKatechis are from that Magnolia-strewn state). Think big, bold lightly-hopped nectar with a malty, steeped with Ethiopian-blend coffee, backbone. Think fun, punny, and a little outrageous (but not crude). Winner will receive a t-shirt from both breweries and huge street cred.
