Checking out New Jersey Beer Co.

Hey everyone, thanks for coming by!  

Kerry and I were recently near Hudson/Bergen County, so we decided to check out New Jersey Beer Co. (NJBC) in North Bergen.  NJBC will soon be celebrating their third anniversary!  I can't believe it has taken us this long to stop in and check things out!

On tap at NJBC was their core lineup plus a winter seasonal.  The core lineup of beers are 1787 Abbey Single Ale, Garden State Stout and Hudson Pale Ale.  The winter seasonal, and my personal favorite, was the Weehawken Wee Heavy.  All visitors to the brewery are allowed a 4 oz. taster of each beer and a tour of their small brewery.  All of their beers were pleasing, and would appeal to a large audience of beer drinkers.

  Thanks to the recent law that was passed by NJ government, NJ breweries may now sell pints of beer in their taprooms!  NJBC was selling pints of their core beers for $4 and pints of their seasonal Wee Heavy for $5.  They also had lots of swag you could purchase (hats, shirts, hoodies, pint glasses, tap handles).

NJBC sells their beer on draft at bars around NJ, and also bottles their core lineup.  Here's some pictures I snapped of their new bottling line and some NJBC branded kegs.

  1. Some of us at drinklikeanadult.com were looking into checking out the New Jersey Beer Company. I'm glad somebody thinks so highly of it; it's definitely on my list of breweries to head to now!

    1. They're definitely a pretty small operation, but they make some tasty beers. Have you been able to try any of their beers on draft or in the bottle?
