Winner of the silver medal at the 2008 Great American Beer Festival, this Belgian-style Abbey Dubbel is an exceptionally complex beer with many interwoven flavors. This classic-style Abbey beer features an immense head with a fruity nose and a generous body. Malty in the middle, the beer features a clean, almondy dry finish and a slight alcohol warmth. More like a wine than a beer-it has a lot of the qualities of a fine Burgundy.
Beer writer Michael Jackson has praised the Flying Fish Dubbel as ”a wonderful example of the style.”

|Great with smoked foods, cheeses, richer foods, and sushi (the sweetness in the beers pairs incredibly with the bit of saltiness in seaweed), sausages. Also an excellent dessert beer-pairs well with pretty much everything.
|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.
