NJ brewery draws ire for naming beers after exits

CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey brewery is using the state's congested and often-derided turnpike to promote its beer, an idea that concerns the New Jersey Turnpike Authority and a group that opposes drinking and driving.

Cherry Hill-based Flying Fish Brewing Co. (motto: "Proudly Brewed in New Jersey : You Got a Problem with That?") has undertaken an ambitious project of releasing a special beer in honor of turnpike exits, one at a time.

The beers are being made in limited runs and sold in 750 milliliter wine-size bottles.

The first, a Belgian-style ale, came out earlier this year in honor of Exit 4, the exit nearest the suburban Philadelphia industrial park that Flying Fish calls home.

The next beer, Exit 11 Hoppy American Wheat Ale, is scheduled to start hitting bars and stores in the region on July 15. The intersection of styles is a tribute to Woodbridge 's exit, where the Turnpike meets the Garden State Parkway .

Joe Orlando, a spokesman for the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, said it's a bad idea to associate a highway with alcohol. Flying Fish has answered the authority's concerns with disclaimers that the beer isn't endorsed by the authority.

"There's been a brokered peace here," Orlando said. "But don't expect to see it in any of our rest areas."

NH has state owned liquor stores right on the highway.

Its like the off ramp to heaven for someone that loves to drink.

That's REALLY screwed up but I guess it's OK if the state does it. :roll: Talk about drinking and driving. :P

" Yo we're from Jersy, we don't pump our gas, we pump our FISTS!!!!"

Drinking and driving bothers me immensely. Ive never done it. I never understand why anyone does it. And believe drunk drivers need to be handled a lot harsher. BUT, i have no problem with this whatsoever. Naming a beer after an exit doesnt lead to drinking and driving. This doesnt promote drinking and driving. They've really gone too far complaining about this.
