The gang ventured out to The Stirling Hotel this past Wednesday for a night of fresh brews from Flying Fish, all in celebration of the release of their latest beer: Exit 8. If you recall, Flying Fish has not released an Exit series beer in a year or so, making this event special for both the brewery and the beer drinkers of New Jersey. The beers weren't the only contribution coming from the brewery - Flying Fish Sales Rep. Rick Stype was available to speak with the patrons and answer any questions they had about the brewery and their brews.

We arrived a little early to take some pictures of tap handles before it got real busy. Dan Schneider of New Jersey Launch fame was busy cleaning out the taps lines to make way for the fresh Jersey brews.

Rick Stype was representing his brand with pride. Gotta love that Exit 4 shirt.

Rick brought out some reading material for the patrons so they could have a better understanding about the beers Flying Fish produces.

With the tap handles in place, it was time to pour up.

Everyone there (from the bar to the dining room) was ordering up some Flying Fish. Those not ordering beer were still encouraged to sample the selection by their servers - a great way to bridge people into the world of craft beer.

It was a no brainer. We had to start with the Exit 8, a Belgian brown ale brewed with honey and chestnuts. A little spice from the hops, roasted notes from the barley, and oats come together to make this beer very balanced and full of flavor, without the ingredients dominating one another. Good job on this one guys, I can't wait to see it bottles.

After our first trip to The Stirling Hotel, we couldn't wait to come back and try some more food.

Steve went for the steak frites dish with fresh spinach, fries, and demi glaze.

I opted for some seafood and got this delicious shrimp po' boy.

Beer number two had to be the Red Fish. Red Fish is an altered recipe inspired by the Exit 9 Hoppy Scarlet Ale. If you like Exit 9, you will definitely enjoy this one. It's a little toned down on the alcohol but most certainly does not lack in flavor. This is another one I cannot wait to see hit the shelves.

Another event on the books. It was great to finally sample the Exit 8 and Red Fish; with these new brews and a new brewery in the works, Flying Fish will be a force to be reckoned with in the NJ beer scene this year. Thanks to The Stirling Hotel for hosting the event and Rick from Flying Fish for coming out to engage with us beer drinkers.
