(Cherry Hill, NJ) – Flying Fish Exit 13 Chocolate Stout will hit shelves next month.
On October 12th, Flying Fish Brewery brewed Exit 13, an Import/Export Chocolate Stout with Belgian chocolate. The beer is scheduled for release in December in 750ml bottles.
Label description: “Stop six on our multi-year trip to explore the state of New Jersey through its beer and culture takes us to Exit 13.
This exit is probably best known for its view of the Newark airport, but it is also home to the Port of Newark-Elizabeth Terminal, one of the busiest in the world. Elizabeth was also New Jersey’s original capitaol. During the Revolutionary War, like at times today, the area was picked on by New Yorkers (well, British forces based in Manhattan).
Many food products come through the port, including the chocolate we’re using for what we’re calling an import/export stout. This fuller ‘export style’ stout gives a sturdy base for the rich chocolate flavor. A mix of imported and domestic malts are highlighted by roastiness from dark wheat. An Irish ale yeast and Pacific Northwest hops combine to add floral, fruity and citrus notes. This is an excellent dessert beer as well as one to share in the cool weather with friends.”
