Whether you call it Taylor Ham or pork roll, you can now enjoy New Jersey's favorite breakfast meat in solid or liquid form. Provided that you're a beer lover, that is.
Described in a release as showcasing "characters of chocolate, maple, toasted nuts and a bit of spice from the pork roll," the brew weighs in at 7.5 ABV and, as NJ.com reports, was produced using actual pork roll from Taylor Provisions. On the nose, "aromas of cocoa with hints of maple and smoke" dominate.
Despite the name, Taylor Ham proponents ought not take offense. As Flying Fish founder Gene Muller told NJ 101.5, the company initially intended to release an Exit 7A Taylor Ham brew, but the name is trademarked.
