Pescado Rojo started from our Red Fish recipe and we upped the malt bill and really upped the hopping rate, hence the Grande. In collaboration with the folks at Jose Cuervo, we aged the beer in oak barrels that formerly held Jose Cuervo Tradicional. The barrel aging adds hints of oak, agave, and vanilla that complement the rich carmel malts to create a one of a kind hoppy, robust beer.

|Flying Fish is located in Somerdale, New Jersey. In a state that once boasted 50 breweries (and by the end of 2015 may once again boast that number), it was the first microbrewery in Southern New Jersey and the first new brewery built in that part of the state in more than half a century. From its opening in late 1996, Flying Fish has increased its capacity more than 20x and become the largest of the ever-growing number of craft breweries in the state.
