Well, it's only March and here we are with full taps ready for the throngs of weekend shore-goers as South Jersey slowly warms up and we transition into Spring.
Freshest on our line-up is the Ryesing Tides IPA (formerly known as Y Not Rye). A personal favorite - and one I've missed over the past year - you can catch me enjoying it on tap and in cans (for sale in the brewpub and around South Jersey).
And if you've been craving something wildly different from the usual IPA line-up, why not try the Wee Heavy Wilson? A Scotch Ale with a significantly peaty and earthy aroma imparts a shockingly smooth malt sweetness on your palette. I will go ahead and say I hate Scotch whisky. Like, it's up there with Jaegermeister for me - undrinkable. But this Scotch Ale is perfectly drinkable.
We also have the bourbon barrel aged version of it on tap for a very limited time and for in-house consumption only. The bourbon infusion masks a good bit of the earthy aroma, and it developed that malty sweetness into a borderline whiskey flavor. It barely tastes like drinking a beer, so if bourbon whiskey is more your style but you really want a beer, ask for the Barrel Aged Wilson. It's around 10%, so if you plan on having more then one, pair it with a smoky barbecue platter or a Peanut Butter Explosion dessert (or both, really). You won't be sorry!
Lastly, for all of you looking for something sweeter that isn't as strong as a Belgian Tripel, don't worry. We'll have the Fruitie Patootie back on tap in time to enjoy some Springtime sunshine before the real summer crowds flock down here.
