  1. Kane Brewing Company – 1750 Bloomsbury Avenue, Ocean NJ ( open Friday 5PM – 8PM and Saturday 12PM – 5PM) Is one of New Jersey best craft breweries.

    Per Website – Launched in August of 2011, Kane Brewing Company is a small craft brewery located on the coast of New Jersey. Our focus is brewing American-style and Belgian influenced ales. All of our handcrafted beers are unfiltered, unpasteurized and brewed locally in our custom built brew house located in Ocean Township in Monmouth County. Most of our beers are draft-only and available at bars and restaurants in coastal, central and northern New Jersey where we hand deliver each beer to ensure the highest level of both beer freshness and service. We hope you enjoy drinking our beers as much as we enjoy creating them.
