I had been told that this was THE brewery to visit in NJ, so a buddy and I ventured down to check it out in December. The brewery is in a house and it's really easy to drive by and miss it. There's street parking out front though, so it's easy to find a spot. Once you're inside, you can... More

I had a great afternoon here with my friends. The building itself does not stand out. In fact it is across the street from an elementary school but once you find this hidden gem you will never forget. For first time visitors you have to take a quick 5 minute tour before you go upstairs to the tasting room. For... More

My twenty three year old twins and I have been enjoying craft breweries this summer. Took a day trip here and we were not disappointed. (Only a 45 minute drive from Maplewood,NJ.) A brief, three minute tour for first timers is required and was informative. Then, you can go upstairs to the tasting room. For $5, you get a sample... More

When you get passed the small room and the usual line for beer in the tap room, you're greeted by a relatively cheap and yet fantastic beer. As an avid craft beer drinker, they're beer is great! Cheers!

Found this brewery by a recommendation of a relative. Turns out its located in a building with a lot of history, which gives it a nice atmosphere. The staff will guide you in a tour of the brewery, mixing wit and knowledge (and an obvious love for beer) in the short tour of the site. After the tour, you go... More

I am a firm believer in supporting your local brewery. The Maibock was real good. Other biers were way to hoppy for my liking. Hopheads will love these biers. The double IPA was good

Found this place about a year ago, and continue to be impressed. The ability to taste test before leaving with a growler of whatever suits my fancy that day is great. And don't forget to bring home some Boat. Great vibe and service. Need more places like this!
