Exit 4 American Trippel
Flying Fish Brewing Co
A Note on This Beer
Flying Fish Brewing was one of the first craft breweries to embrace Belgian-style beers. Their GABF Gold winner Exit 4 American Trippel was proclaimed by Men’s Journal to be the “Best Belgian Beer in America.” An established East Coast institution for over twenty years, Flying Fish’s journey has become one of craft beer legend.
When the brewery began in 1995, the Internet was an unrefined technology. There was no Netflix. No Amazon. You couldn’t even ask Jeeves a question. But one passionate New Jersey brewmaster saw potential in the World Wide Web. Founder Gene Muller pioneered a “virtual” microbrewery - in essence, a community planned microbrewery that networked craft beer lovers. This democratic process seeded the pioneer attitude of Flying Fish.
Less than a year later, Flying Fish Brewing opened their doors.
Exit 4 is the epitome of Trippel excellence fueled with a trailblazing spirit. The amber golden brew parades out of the glass with trademark Belgian aromatics - ripe banana and warm clove spice. A surprise subtle touch of citrus pops the senses courtesy of Amarillo hops. Signature rich malty sweetness gets a gentle pine-soaked nudge from Simcoe, providing a bitter balance.
Flying Fish has been a craft beer legend for almost a quarter century. Despite a fervor of fanfare, their beers have escaped Northwest palates. But there’s no need for a road trip to Jersey - we’ve brought the Exit right to your front door.
