(Cherry Hill, NJ) – Some Flying Fish Brewing news per the latest email…
Well, we tried naming this beer Scarlet Fever, but the Feds would not approve our label because it was also the name of a disease. Since we’re plumb out of time and other great name ideas, we’re calling this West Coast hoppy red ale, Red Fish. Columbus, Chinook and Cascade hops give the beer a robust piney nose. Two-row, crystal and cara-red malts give the beer a malty background and a 7% abv. Red Fish will be available only on draft starting mid-January and only for a short while for now.
According to the brewery website, they are still looking for a name.
Based on early feedback, we’re thinking of keeping this beer as a full-time offering, but we really want a better name. Send us your suggestions. The winning suggestion will receive a $100 Flying Fish gift card and a couple of goodies from our cellar.
Lastly, Flying Fish announced that Chestnut Brown Ale (Exit 8) will hit stores next month. Look for another batch of Grand Cru Winter Reserve on draft as well.
