When Gene Muller founded Flying Fish Brewing Co. in 1995, he did so first on the pre-spam/Amazon/Google World Wide Web – making it the world’s first virtual microbrewery. The subsequent attention generated investor and bank interest turning a great idea into great beer at a real brewery in Cherry Hill in 1996.
Fast forward a couple of decades and Flying Fish is now located in Somerdale, New Jersey. In a state where the 50 pre-prohibition breweries were reduced to a couple, we were the first microbrewery in South Jersey and are now the largest of the 70+ craft breweries in the state.
Our state-of-the-art brewery is the most sustainable in the region and allows us to brew beer in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
Flying Fish now produces a range of beers year-round, along with a variety of seasonal specialties. The Tasting Room, open Wednesday-Sunday features 15 taps and weekly one-off and barrel aged beers. Flying Fish beers are ten-time medal winners at the Great American Beer Festival, the most of any New Jersey brewery.
