Last summer, one of New Jersey's premier summer destinations saw two breweries open as both Last Wave Brewing Company and Frye Brewing opened in Point Pleasant. On Memorial Day weekend, Last Wave celebrated their first anniversary with a selection of special beer tappings. This Saturday, June 16, Frye Brewing is celebrating their first anniversary, and has announced a tapping of their "Coconut in the Dark" stout as well as "something special". We might now have insight into what that surprise is.
According to a filing with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Frye Brewing received approval on Thursday, June 7th, for a label for Bay-To-Bridge Imperial Red Ale. According to the label, Bay-To-Bridge is an 8% ABV offering that will be distributed in 22oz bottles. The bottle label registered with the TTB indicates the beer was bottled today, June 12th.
When we reached out to Frye, the brewery confirmed that Bay-To-Bridge is a beer label for the collaboration with Last Wave. The brewery also told us that they "haven't bottled yet", and could not confirm that the bottle release would occur during the Anniversary celebration.
