First released in 2002, and sold out in two weeks. A tribute to the classic Fest styles of Germany, the O'Fish uses European malts hops and yeast. A beautiful reddish color, a savory malt profile and nice hop flavor, make this Fest beer quite drinkable. OktoberFish is great with food and especially great with Lederhosen.

Hops: Horizon, Crystal
Yeast: Dusseldorf Alt
Original Gravity: 14.3 Plato
Alcohol by volume: 6.0%
IBU's: 17
Formats: 12 oz. bottles, 1/2 kegs, 1/6 kegs, cask-conditioned

Back on My Feet seeks to revolutionize the way our society approaches homelessness. Their unique running-based model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead and move toward jobs, homes and new lives. For all in need, they aim to provide: practical training and employment resources for achieving independence; an environment that promotes accountability; and a community that offers compassion and hope.  For all with the capacity to serve—volunteers, donors, community and corporate partners—they seek to engage you in the profound experience of empowering individuals to achieve what once seemed impossible through the seemingly simple act of putting one foot in front of the other.

Donate $20 at checkout and you'll receive a special swag.



As you know, each Brewery Run features a different glass to add to your collection.  When you are celebrating the release of an Oktoberfest beer, you have to serve it in a classic mug, which every runner will receive at the finish. Instead of a neck medal we have our custom crafted coaster line, a medal you can use. 

Runners who donate an extra $20 at registration for Back on My Feet will also get a upgraded swag


When Gene Muller founded Flying Fish Brewing Co. in 1995, he did so first on the World Wide Web - making it the world's first virtual microbrewery. 

Flying Fish Brewing Company is located in Somerdale, New Jersey. In a state that once boasted 50 breweries, it is 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 tripled its capacity and become the largest of the approximately 20 craft breweries in the state.

Flying Fish beers were the first in the region to be featured at the Great British Beer Festival, Oregon Brewers Festival and Canada's Biere de Mondial Festival. They have also won several medals at the Real Ale Festival in Chicago, the World Beer Championships and is the only New Jersey brewery featured in the 2000 book Best American Beers.
