The impressive stable of Ocean County breweries will soon be joined by Oyster Creek Brewing Company, Waretown’s first! I had the opportunity to sit and meet with founder and head brewer, Kris Lewis, tour the facility and talk about the progress. The brewery is minutes from Oyster Creek Generating Station, the oldest operating nuclear plant in the US (which recently announced it will be closing later this year) and the tributary of Barnegat Bay which it is named for. Kris wanted to keep a local feel, so rather than ignore the proximity to the plant, he incorporated it into the name, logo, and design of his brewhouse. The table tops are embedded with a map of the Tri-State area, with markers of all the generating stations and locations. He also has several booths from the now closed local restaurant the Forked River House, again, keeping that local connection. That sense of community that we see with many of our breweries is important to Kris, as he was born, raised in still lives in Southern Ocean County. His love of brewing started over 20 years ago when he bought a homebrew kit for his dad. It was an extract kit, “Your […]

E-A-G-L-E-S!  Expect to hear a bunch of Eagles chants and good-natured trash talking as Night Shift Brewing Company comes to Cape May Brewing Company on 2/17 to settle a wager made between the breweries on the Super Bowl.  This event will benefit Eagles Charities and will be a lot of fun!  More details in the press release below! From The Press Release: Cape May Brewing Company Celebrates Eagles Win! Cape May, NJ — Cape May Brewing Company is celebrating the Eagles’ recent big win with a celebration in their Tasting Room at 1288 Hornet Road in the Cape May Airport. In the weeks before the big game, the brewery entered into a friendly wager with Massachusetts-based Night Shift Brewing. On February 17th, representatives from Night Shift will be on-hand in the Cape May Brewing Company Tasting Room from 4-5pm to settle the wager. “It’s really been a great time working with these guys,” says Cape May Brewing Company CEO and co-founder Ryan Krill. “We were both hoping to see our teams win, but they’ve been gracious, even in the face of their home team’s loss. The Eagles prevailed and so did CMBC!” Kicking off a 4pm, Night Shift owner Mike […]

Lunacy Brewing Company will be celebrating their 3rd Anniversary on Saturday, February 10th at the taproom in Haddon Heights.  The event will run from 1-8 PM and the guys are going to be giving away swag and prizes all day.  There will be 16 different types of beer on tap including a special new brew or two – including their Chocolate Coconut Stout.  In addition, there will be live acoustic music from Rob McMahon and Ashley Heffren along with a food truck from  Il Fuoco Dentro, who will be making brick oven pizza all day!  “It’s going to be momentous!” co-owner Ed Gledhill told us, and with the rabid fanbase of “lunatics” that Lunacy has, I would expect nothing less! Lunacy opened in Magnolia in January of 2015 and recently moved to their new location in Haddon Heights in September of 2017.  In those 3 years, Lunacy has built a dedicated fanbase which may be the most loyal in all of South Jersey.  Ed agreed, “We have the best patrons that you can ask for and they spread the Lunacy name to any and all like it’s their job!”  When I asked Ed what it is about Lunacy that people […]

WE’RE BACK! With those 2 words everyone’s favorite veteran owned and operated brewery reopened this past weekend to standing room only crowds! Backward Flag recently completed a huge upgrade to its brewhouse, more than doubling in size to a 10 barrel facility with state of the art equipment. That means more beer, but also more opportunity to support the veteran and law enforcement community, the mission of owner Torie Fisher since the brewery opened in 2015. The brewery was closed the month of January to install the machinery, plumbing, train the staff and of course, brew more beer to fill all of those new tanks! Mil-Spec Black IPA, Oak Armored Ale and the annual January favorite, Raisin Bread (made with 10 pounds of raisins and Saigon Cinnamon) were among the brews on tap with more on the way. Congratulations and good luck to Torie and her team at Backward Flag! Welcome back!

You walk into the brewery, take your tour, and go read the menu. You see Stouts, IPA’s, Ales, Lagers, Wits, and a …Sour? A sour beer? What does that mean? The brewer purposely made the beer acidic to taste tart? Hmmmmm……. Bacteria are what give the sour beers their distinct taste. Lactobacillus and Pediococcus are the two bacteria that turn the sugars into lactic acid and increase acidity. Brettanomyces is wild yeast that balances the beer with an earthiness. So how do they taste? At first sip, I thought, “Oooh, too tart!” But then I was asked by the brewer, “Do you like wine?” I replied, “Yes.” He said, “Take another sip and think about wine.” Wow! He was right. The sour took on an entirely new profile. Comparing it to wine, rather than a sour or tart drink, had me appreciating it a lot more. It was crisp, clean, refreshing, tart and fruity. Yay! A brand new way to enjoy a beer. Sours can be a great alternative to those who don’t love beer but do like wine. For me, they’re a brew to slowly sip and savor the flavor of just one. I must admit, I don’t regularly […]

In conjunction with the Total Turf Experience, brewery partners Frank Price, Paul McIntyre, Dave Surdam and Bruce Lowden are excited to announce that we will locate our new brewery in their newly expanded facility at 614 Lambs Road, Pitman, NJ (Mantua Township).
