Press Release from Flying Fish Brewing Company in Somerdale, New Jersey:
LIMITED RELEASE - Stormy Skies NEIPA is about to set sail.
Flying Fish production employee, Mike Jadach, created this hazy, 7.3%, double dry hopped beauty for a home-brew competition. However, his entry in the competition was disallowed because of his brewery employment status.
Recognizing the beer was too solid not to release to the world, the Flying Fish team rallied around Mike to scale up his creation and will be bringing it to life as a limited distribution release this June.
“Every time I would brew this beer on my system in my garage, the skies would open up in a predictable way, so I started calling it Stormy Skies from the get-go,” says creator Mike Jadach. “The ample haze in the liquid certainly fits the name, but that Citra and Mosaic dry hopping really leads to a nice pineapple and mango payoff.”
For the label, President Lou Romano knew they would have to do something unique. “Mike has a healthy tattoo collection, and I felt the label should be reflective of the brewer. We tapped local tattoo artist Jeff Miller of Seven Swords to draw up a classic clipper ship for the primary label space. The look really gives this offering its own personality within our brand family.”
You can grab an early chance at buying it when we release it at the tasting room on May 31st at 3 pm. Reservations can be made through the Ticketleap link in our profile. Limit 1 case per customer ($12.99 per 4-pack). We will also have this beer on draft starting on the 31st.
