It is only June, but 2014 has already been a huge year of growth for the NJ beer industry. In my last update on the state of beer in NJ, I highlighted 4 new breweries: Bolero Snort Brewery, the new Iron Hill in Voorhees, Flounder Brewing and Village Idiot Brewing. Since then, beer is now being brewed at Hearthstone Grill, Angry Erik, Glasstown, Rinn Duin and Pinelands Brewing. Let's look at these in a little more depth! Hearthstone Grillwebsite / Facebook

Canes Venatici is the latest installment in the Weyerbacher Brewer's Select Series. The beer was released on May 25, 2014 in Weyerbacher's taproom in 12 oz. bottles. You can also find it on tap in limited amounts in Weyerbacher's distribution network.
