Flying Fish Constructing a Beer Garden


Speaking of beer gardens, Flying  Fish Brewing is hard at work constructing a beer garden out their Somerdale, New Jersey brewery. The cinder block was dropped off a couple of days ago and significant progress has already been made.

When the beer garden is complete, you’ll be able to enjoy beers from New Jersey’s largest craft brewery on its patio and get food from visiting food trucks. That will be clutch, because New Jersey law prohibits Flying Fish from selling food at its brewery (how’s that for a wacky alcohol law?).

    I thought that PA’s laws were insane until I came to NJ. This should be awesome though.

  • Boo-urns

    NJ has completely retarded laws in regards to breweries and brewpubs. Then you go elsewhere and see how cool and awesome it could be, and how pervasive the beer culture becomes, when you just loosen your legal sphincter a bit and let people enjoy themselves and let these guys run a business the way they want to.

    Art and Foobooz:

    This whole new “sponsored content” consuming the page really sucks! It seems
    like this food blog that used to be awesome keeps on turning and turning
    and turning for the worse. It all started with the acquisition from Philly
    Mag. I still visit the site daily as it remains a great food scene resource but, the
    increasing changes (that are so obviously funded ones) are making this
    blog extremely unappealing. It is totally clear which restaurants teets you guys suckle. Be it their PR firm paying you off or, ones that advertise with the magazine. It is also clear that there are certain restaurants doing great stuff that you have a bone to pick with for whatever reason and refuse to give them coverage. I say this having previously worked for one such restaurant. That said place can suck a big one in my eyes now, but still, it was/is apparent that they were/are ignored for all of the great stuff they’ve done/are doing.

    I am aware that this comment will probably get deleted by
    your monitors. Perhaps if I paid for some ad space with philly mag, it
    would see the light of day.

    Come to Jesus Art. You sold your soul to the devil (Herb/David Lipson) and your baby is slowly dying as a result!

    Dumb question: then why is Iron Hill Brewery allowed to serve food in New Jersey?

    • It’s defined as a brewpub which is different than a production brewery.

  • rayster

    PA has its ultra-stupid state store and beer distributor laws and NJ had its insane brewery/brewpub laws along with ginormously over price liquor licenses.
