Flying Fish and High Point, in New Jersey
Just north of Philadelphia, the New Jersey suburb of Cherry Hill has the newish micro Flying Fish. Why that name? "All the other animals were taken," observes partner Robin Tama. Not quite true, but never mind -- I enjoyed the beers:
A malty but dryish Extra Pale Ale.
A nuttier, fruitier, more rounded, very drinkable, ESB.
A well-balanced IPA, with good hop flavors but not a great deal of bitterness.
A Porter with good bitter-chocolate flavors.
At the other end of Jersey: very malty, creamy wheat beers, in Blond (actually tan) and Dark versions, from the High Point micro, in the town of Butler. It's near the highest point in Jersey. Confusingly, the beers are branded Ramstein, after a U.S. base near Frankfurt, Germany.
