With so many New Jersey breweries popping up in South Jersey, I decided it was time to visit Atco Brewing Co which is located on White Horse Pike in Atco, New Jersey.
The brewery itself is spacious and cozy, which has plenty of seating and is completely family friendly. They are open Thursday through Sundays.
Atco Brewing Company embraces their town’s roots by paying homage to the old Atco Railroad. This abandoned railway line between Atco and Mullica Hill was first operated by the Williamstown Railroad, between Atco and Williamstown, in 1873. It has been abandoned since 1980, but is a popularly photographed location in the South Jersey community.
What I tried while I was there:
– Atco Booby Trapp; 4.8% ABV. A Belgian Style Beer
– Atco Choo Choo Brown Ale; 6.8% ABV, a brown ale cesigned w/ Crystal, Munich, Brown, and Chocolate malts yielding sweet notes of Caramel/Chocolate
– Atco Lemon Drop IPA; 5.8% ABV, a delicious IPA with a drop of Lemon
– Atco Straw Hat; 5.2% ABV, a Blonde Ale made with American ale yeast,brew with pilsner malt and rolled oats, and nugget hops for a little flavor.
What I liked about Atco Brewing Co is that they have great beer in a very laid back location. You can just chill with your friends, grab a flight or pint, and play one of the many board games they have to offer.
Definitely check them out if you’re in the area!
