Today we are drinking the Aviator Brewing Company Night Jump, a barrel aged Russian Imperial Stout. “Night Jump pours deep black with a dark roasted head of foam. Note the smell of the barrel and the full scent of the malts. There is a rich flavor complimented by the whiskey barrel aging and the cocoa nibs.” Aviator is located at 209 Technology Park Lane in Fuquay Varina, just south of Raleigh. Aviator started in 2008 in an airplane hangar initially brewing in two used 300 gallon dairy tanks. They have come a long way since then and now operate the Aviator Tap House in the old Varina train depot, the Aviator SmokeHouse restaurant as a complement to Aviator Tap House located across Broad street and the Aviator Beer Shop at 601 E. Broad St.
