For Immediate Release: Dogfish Head Adds Liquid Truth Serum to Year-Round Lineup Brewery brings back popular IPA in 16oz cans and mixes up a fruit-filled spin on fan-favorite beer Milton, Del., June 15, 2018 – After an overwhelmingly positive reaction from fans, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery’s Liquid Truth Serum is back by popular demand as a year-round brand and is making the transition from 6pk/12oz bottles to 4pk/16oz cans. Slated to hit shelves nationwide late June, this IPA debunks the myth that IBUs (hop bitterness) can only be achieved by adding hops during the boil, as all of its hops are added post-boil. During the whirlpool, whole leaf, liquefied, pelletized and powdered hops are added to create a beer that is truthfully hoppy without being deceptively bitter. Clocking in at 7% ABV and 65 IBUs, the unfiltered Liquid Truth Serum is immensely and approachably hoppy.  Golden-orange in color, this IPA fills the palate with citrusy notes of mandarin orange, tangerine, tropical mango and hints of juicy stone fruits. “After so much love from our fans, the truth was clear – Liquid Truth Serum needed to come back, and this time, as a year-round offering,” said Sam Calagione, CEO and founder […]

Have you ever tried the latest roasted coffee porter on your friend’s recommendation, and there was no love at first sip? Have you sampled a highly anticipated sour red ale and let a “meh” escape your lips?  It happens. Sometimes because the beer simply is not aligned with your taste expectations—which in Scottish terms is known as “crap.” But other times it’s because you’re suffering from a phenomenon we’ll discuss today, known as batch fatigue. In its simplest terms, batch fatigue is when your palate gets tired of trying new flavors every week—or, for the more adventurous among you, every glass—leaving the avid beer drinker with a less-than-ringing-endorsement of the local brewmaster’s most-recent innovation. Before you panic, know this:   Batch fatigue is a temporary condition  It is not contagious  There are ways to recognize it, address it, and possibly even prevent it* *These claims have not been validated by a medical professional or even a reputable brewmaster. Recognizing and Dealing with Batch Fatigue   Thankfully, a blood test is not required to determine if you suffer from batch fatigue. It’s as much as a mental challenge as it is a physical affliction of your taste buds. So how do we […]

I recently sat down with the new Head Brewer of Tuckahoe Brewing Co. Ingrid Epoch to talk about her past, and present with Tuckahoe Brewing. Ingrid started out her professional brewing career with Devil’s Creek Brewing in Collingswood in the spring of 2016. In September of 2017, she brought her skills to Forgotten Boardwalk Brewing where she brewed until April of this year when she became Head Brewer of Tuckahoe Brewing Co. Although I only had a short time to interview Ingrid due to a rigorous brewing schedule, I got the impression that this is going to be a good fit. While she will continue to brew our favorite recipes we have enjoyed over the last 7 years, she will also bring in some new styles for us to enjoy. I’m really excited to see what the future holds for Tuckahoe Brewing. To learn a little more about Ingrid I asked her our 10 questions which is one of my favorite assignments because of the great tips and knowledge they produce. What was the first beer you brewed, and how was it? After reading “The Complete Joy of Home Brewing” by Charlie Papazian AKA “The Bible” to most homebrewers I […]

SOMERDALE, N.J. — Flying Fish Brewing recently released Onshore Lager, a 4.9% ABV crisp, clean lager that includes the recognizable imagery of a “dune crossing” on the can and a promise to donate to clean water efforts. Today, on World Oceans Day, they’ve announced a portion of the sales of Onshore Lager will go to New Jersey-based Clean Ocean Action, an organization that’s dedicated to the quality of the marine waters off the New Jersey coast.“Onshore Lager was brewed as a tribute to the beautiful waterways that surround our home, and we specifically wanted to capture that feeling of relaxation on the shoreline with this can,” states Lou Romano, President of Flying Fish. “We also are concerned about protecting that environment for generations, so we’ve committed to work with Clean Ocean Action to help contribute to their ongoing efforts to protect our coast.” Clean Ocean Action was formed in 1984, successfully advocating to close all ocean dumpsites in New Jersey. Since then, through scientific research, education, policy, and citizen action, COA has done extraordinary work to ensure safe swimming waters, reduce marine debris, and fight offshore oil and gas facilities. In addition to the donation, Flying Fish employees will participate […]

Human Village Brewing Company: Enter as nomads, stay as villagers. If you have not recently been to Pitman, you are certainly missing out on some fantastic beer. Over the last few years, it has become easier to enjoy a brew in the historically dry town. I like to joke that Pitman isn’t dry, its damp. The town still does not have a liquor store, but Pitman does have breweries. One you need to get to is Human Village Brewing Company. From their flagship “Beers and the Bees”, a Golden Ale brewed with generous amounts of raw local wildflower honey from Anthony’s Local Honey Farm, to their Dry English Porter, “London Calling”, Human Village has something for everyone.  And for the non-drinkers, Human Village brews up their own rotating craft soda (soon to have more flavors available for flights). You can also sit back and enjoy your own personal pot of coffee. Human Village operates in what used to be Bus Stop Cafe, a well-known spot for live music,  and the music has not died. Vinyl records hang on the walls, and there is always great music playing. On Thursday nights, you can enjoy local musicians as they come up on […]

From Pastime to Passion: A Journey to Craft Beer through Feminism Working in the New Jersey craft beer scene has been a wild (almost) two years.  If you came to me in 2012 and told me that I would be regularly drinking craft beer, occasionally brewing it, and talking about beer all the time, I would tell you to sit down and have another drink. My foray into craft beer began at the 2012 Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival with my then-boyfriend, now-husband.  We had just started dating and I only went because it gave me the chance to be ‘the cool girl who drinks beer’.  Up until a few years ago, I believed the societal notion that beer was for guys and women only pretended to like beer to look cool (Go ahead – gasp and clutch your pearls.  I will save my Come to Jesus-I mean Feminism moment for another time.) I was intimidated.  The only beer I had ever consumed at this point was some classically collegiate light beer and Yuengling Lager when the party hosts wanted to appear ‘cultured’.  Thankfully, my partner was aware of my palate (wine, please!) and introduced me to mead.  I […]
