SOMERDALE, NJ (May 16, 2019) – Flying Fish Brewing Company, 10-time medal winners at the Great American Beer Festival, have teamed up with the Adventure Aquarium in Camden and Aramark, the Aquarium’s food and beverage provider, to offer their visitors not only a new beer but also a new space to enjoy it in this summer.
The Flying Fish Brewing Team worked directly with Aquarium management to develop a refreshing summer beer to honor two of the destination’s most popular residents, Genny and Button the Hippos.
Not surprisingly, since watermelon is their favorite treat, the beer allows the flavor to take center stage, and “Watermelon Splash” Wheat Ale is set to debut.
“Partnering with the Adventure Aquarium not only makes sense with our Brewery name, but it’s also a place in our backyard where guests can explore and fulfill their curiosities in a world class facility,” said Kirk LaVecchia, Director of Sales at Flying Fish. “We hope to provide a little refreshment to those guests this summer as they take a break from that exploration and enjoy a beverage.”
To enhance that “beverage break,” Flying Fish and Aramark partnered to design a new space within the Aquarium grounds, appropriately called the Flying Fish Beer Garden, featuring a
scenic overlook of the river and skyline. Various Flying Fish and craft beers will be offered, including Watermelon Splash.
“We look forward to having everyone try the new beer, as well as some Flying Fish favorites like Hopfish, XPA, Salt & Sea, Farmhouse, and Onshore.”
Flying Fish Watermelon Splash ABV: 4.3% Availability: Memorial Day, through the close of the season, exclusively at the Flying Fish Beer Garden at the Adventure Aquarium
