The wait is almost over!
It’s been nearly a year since Flying Fish has produced a new Exit beer. If you remember Exit 9, Hoppy Scarlet Ale, was released close to this time last year. Exit 8, Chestnut Brown Ale, should be ready for an early March launch.
Here is the description: Straight from Flying Fish
Exit 8 – Chestnut Brown Ale
The long-delayed eighth stop on our multi- year trip brings us to, coincidentally, Exit 8 and celebrates what puts the “Garden” in Garden State.
To celebrate Exit 8, one of our big farming areas, we’ve brewed a beer that uses a lost local ingredient: chestnuts–and a popular current one: local honey. This full-bodied hybrid Belgian-style brown ale brings forward a nutty character from the chestnuts, accented by the flavors of honey, roasted barley and oat flakes. There’s a nice spiciness from the Mt. Rainier hops while Chinooks add a touch of pine. Fuggles and Columbus round out the hop profile.
Exit 8 pairs perfectly with hearty foods like roast pork, sausages or a nice aged gouda. Bottled conditioned, 8.3% abv
Spoiler Alert: This Wednesday, February 22, the Standard Tap in Northern Liberties will be tapping a firkin of the Exit 8 at 6pm.
Hope to see some of you there!
