Exit 8 Beer by Flying Fish Co

I’m considered somewhat of a beer snob by my friends. I’ve found a love for craft beers and given the opportunity, will spend my evening out trying different beers form the craft list on tap. A local favorite is Flying Fish Brewing Company in Cherry Hill, NJ. They have a series of beers dedicated and honoring the NJ turnpike exits! My favorite thus far happens to be my own exit 4! A great Belgian Style Trippel. The latest to be released is Exit 8!

To borrow from their exit series website:

“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”
