Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Blue Rush

Flying Fish Brewing Company in Somerdale, NJ has a beer series based on the exits along the New Jersey Turnpike. As I was considering options for this week’s cocktail, I came upon their offering for Exit Three, which just so happened to be the exit closest to my house while growing up.

I was definitely drawn to the name first; doesn’t it sound like something that just had to be a part of my life?? Once I started tasting them, I was not disappointed. I found them to be light in body, low in alcohol, yet with a rustic quality that made them so much more complex, especially if they were made by a craft brewery.

Wednesday Beer Cocktails: The Golden Word

Who among us has not wished for the Midas touch where everything we come in contact with, literally or figuratively, turns to gold? Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, located in Milton, Delaware, opened in 1995 and seemed to immediately have their own Midas touch as they soon became one of the fastest growing microbreweries in the country. In 1999, they collaborated with molecular archaeologist Patrick McGovern from the University of Pennsylvania, whose specialty is researching and finding evidence for
