Flying Fish Celebrates a New Jersey Milestone

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.

Style: Old Ale (w/ Molasses)
Hops: Cluster, Simcoe, Centennial
Availability: 750ml Bottles

Arrival: TBA

7.5% ABV

New Release: Harpoon Imperial Pumpkin

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.

The base brew is essentially an imperial stout with a pumpkin side, plus molasses, and spices added in for a fall treat. Look for it now until it sells out.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Pumpkin, Molasses, Cinnamon, Nutmeg)
Availability: 22oz bombers. Limited Draft.

10.5% ABV

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:

Oskar Blues & Asheville Brewing Collaborate. You Name It.

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.

Drop an idea on their Facebook page.  Pic via Asheville Brewing.

Style: Imperial Brown Ale (w/ Coffee)
Availability: Draft Only
Arrival: 4/8/13

If you go: 

Simultaneous release parties on April 8th at each brewery (North Carolina).
