The alcohol definitely smacks you in the face with the 9.5 abv right off the start. Head doesn't last too long in the glass. Nice color. Immediate sweetness accompanies the heavy alcohol. Overall a decent beer but not as good as their exit 16...but it's from New Jersey so it rules no matter what.

Went on Saturday afternoon, place was filled with people on the inside, very "biergarten" like atmosphere on the inside. If you're new to the place they make you watch a commercial before you order beers (I guess NJ laws says you have to be on a tour to drink beer at a brewery, which is pretty damn stupid). Regardless, we walked up and ordered a flight of beers to sample.

All the hoppy beer seemed to be fresh and bright, no off putting flavors. Nothing was really mind blowing but was all pretty well done. About 10 beers were on tap when we were there, plus the store had bottles that you could purchase to take home. Staff seemed pretty nice and informative, but due to the crowds there was a bit of a rush.

For a facility of their size I wish they had some sort of outdoor patio area, but now knowing how shitty NJ is with beer laws I'm sure they can't do it without ending up in jail. Overall nice brewery, needs more tables inside, solid beer.

South Jersey's new facility is very good. For some reason. NJ has this odd "you can only drink if you tour" rule that flying fish makes you watch a 3 minute commercial for the beers.

In any case, Flying Fish is a classic beer that unfortnately would be known as middle of the road. The beers i prefer are from the exit series, hopfish and redfish are pretty much standard. The exit series beers are tasty some quite good actually but some can be a miss.

The brewery does have a brewdog, but i did not ask if they are pet friendly. There appeard to be a regular crew of people both times I went.

Its definitely a nice place to visit in south nj.

I like taking the trip out here, as they always have one barrel-aged version (bourbon or tequila) of their beers on tap that makes the trip worth while. The staff is super friendly and make great conversation.

Very friendly place. In order to buy draft beers you must watch a video or take a tour. Most people say "watched the video" which is on loop. I took the tour which is very short but extremely informative. Everyone that works here knows plenty about brewing and the future developments of the brewery. Cool gear in the gift shop. Worth a stop if your between PA,DE,and NJ.
