Our review of Last Wave Brewing in Point Pleasant Beach, located perfectly for Jersey Shore travelers, on Bay Ave, right off Arnold Ave. It has a big tasting room and a nice selection of beers including several very good IPAs.
Our review of Frye Brewing in Point Pleasant Boro. A nicely sized brewery with a variety of ales, including a few great IPAs and imperial ales.
Happening now until December 9th, 2018, Modine Chefs Chris Davin and Jill Meerpohl will be serving delicious renditions of this holiday classic each night including hashbrown latkes with creme fresh and apple butter. Later this month, locals can enjoy a Christmas Eve family-style dinner and an awesome 80’s Prom New Year’s Eve party including live music by DJ Foggy Notion.
Less than 3 weeks after Red Tank’s launch, a new brewery opened in Red Bank, this time an addition to a well-known family: Triumph Brewing. It’s been an event long in the making and I was surprised that it opened quietly, without much fanfare, on a Monday in early November 2018. I had the pleasure of going there in just their second day and was really impressed!
Belford Brewing is among the closest ones to my home, and I’ve been there many times, however I never wrote a full review until now. The brewery opened in the Belford Junction of Middletown NJ in the summer of 2014, and since then (there were only 5 beers available first time I went there) it grew both in production and in space.
On my Atlantic City trip yesterday, I also visited the Garden State Beer Company, which is on the White Horse Pike just off the Parkway exit 40. So it’s a convenient stop when you’re going in or out of AC. I was impressed by the size of the tasting room, which is huge, maybe one of the largest I’ve seen at a New Jersey microbrewery.
This weekend I decided to go further down South and explore more Jersey Shore breweries. On a trip to Atlantic City, I found the Hidden Sands Brewing Co which is indeed kind of hidden in Egg Harbor, but it’s right off exit 37 on the Parkway or a very small detour if you’re heading back on the AC Expressway. Hidden Sands has a nice tasting room, cozy and not too big, a friendly bar area with a TV to watch your favorite game.
