Brewery Review: River Horse Brewing Co in Ewing Twp

11001927_1559254517664854_6621387510187947067_n

I am very quickly checking off  visiting a lot of breweries all around New Jersey! Good thing I recently became a NJ Craft Beer Member!

I have drank River Horse beer before, so I was looking forward to visiting their brewery in New Ewing Twp (Right by Trenton). They have a pretty big facility in New Ewing compared to their former space in Lambertville.

If you decide to go and you want to go on the tour, be sure to sign up for the tour before hand! When we went it was busy! The tour was great because it was only $5 and we got to try 4 different beers.

The tour itself it quite informative. It was roughly 30 minutes, and you get to try the samples at different stations along the route of the tour. I highly recommend doing it.

10988494_1559254837664822_2873159409258724317_n

Beers I tried while I was there:
– River Horse IPA: American Style IPA, ABV – 5.7%
– Triple Horse: Belgian Style Tripel Ale, ABV – 10.0% (!!)
– Oatmeal Milk Stout: Stout brewed with oats and milk sugar, ABV – 6.7%
– Belgian Freeze: Winter Ale available Oct-Dec, ABV – 8%
– Chocolate Porter – ABV - 6.5%

The last 3 beers are all seasonal, but definitely try to get your hands on them!

I also really enjoyed the decor of the place. There were hippos everywhere! They have a lot of great, original art work all around the brewery which gives it a really hip (pun not intended) vibe.

Inside the brewery you can buy pints of beer, growlers, and they have lots of merch.

My husband and I went home with a growler of Tripel Horse and a 4-pack of Hippo-Lantern. AKA we went home very happy.

Brewery Review: Kane Brewing Co in Ocean Twp

10292534_1555872228003083_9026057833620288038_n

I’m very fortunate that I live fairly close to a few breweries. I had been wanting to check out Kane Brewing for a while, and decided to finally go!

The brewery is a lot bigger than it looks. When you walk in there’s a room to fill growlers and buy merchandise, and you think that’s it…but then there’s a whole warehouse/tasting room where there were lots of people were drinking and having a great time.

When we arrived, it was 10 min before the tour started we didn’t have time to really start drinking…but I decided to try to Parhelion ($3 for the 4 oz)while we waited and it was delicious. The Parhelion is a bourbon barrel-aged Imperial IPA, 9.4% ABV. Definitely had a kick!

Although the place was packed, no one else seemed to wanted to do the 1pm tour so my friends and I got a private tour which was pretty sweet! The tour is free if you’re in the brewery, so you might as well go!

After we finished the tour we got down to drinking and we tried a flight of the four beers they had on tap:
– Head High; American India Pale Ale (IPA)
– Overhead; American India Pale Ale (IPA)
– Single Fin; Belgian-style Blonde Ale
– Silent Nights; Imperial Stout

10980742_1555872178003088_1755998025541466865_n

A flight is $6, and to try a 4 oz beer it’s $3 for the Silent Nights and $2 for the year round beers. I recommend being adventurous, a flight is definitely the most cost effective and you can try all the beers!

1003759_1555872368003069_140026554194627867_n

*FYI The Parhelion I mentioned before was not available for flights or growlers.

Speaking of growlers, we purchased a 64 oz growler so we’ll definitely be back visiting soon! It’s definitely a popular spot!

Brewery Review: Little Dog Brewing Co in Neptune City

photo 1(1)

I’ve been visiting more and more breweries lately (my goal is to visit all of them!) and my latest review is for Little Dog Brewing Company located in Neptune City.

The brewery is fairly new, but they’re definitely building a local interest! We were there for a 2pm tour and the place was packed!

If you get the chance to visit Little Dog, I highly suggest you sign up for a tour. The tour is led by Gretchen Schmidhausler, the owner and brewer. She knows her stuff! Before she started Little Dog Brewing Co, she was the Brewmaster for Basil T’s Brewery & Italian Grill in Red Bank. She is also the VP of the NY Division of the Master Brewers Association of the Americas. She’s very personable and will answer any questions you have about the beer making process.

The tour itself costs $5 and includes tastings of 4 beers. They only had 4 on tap, so I decided to do a flight so I could try all of them. Here is a list of what they are currently offering:

photo 2

(DuckBoy Pale Ale, Gesundheit Albier, Janet’s Favorite Porter and His Nibs Licorice Brown Ale)

Look how cute their tasting chips are!

And here is my flight:

Be sure to check out their Facebook page, they are always brewing up something new!

If you’re looking to take something home to remember the experience, they have t-shirts for sale and two different size growlers. We went home with a growler filled of the “His Nibs” which was drank at home fairly quickly.

Definitely looking forward to going back and seeing this little brewery expand!

My Visit of Forgotten Boardwalk Brewery

10929569_1550220268568279_2832700972812929041_n

Yesterday I got a chance to check out the Forgotten Boardwalk Brewing Company in Cherry Hill with friends. It was a really cool experience!

The tasting/tap room had a really cool boardwalk theme. They even had their own personal skeeball machines!

1511338_1550220185234954_910292431252337133_n

Since I had never had the chance to try their beer before, my husband and I split a sampler of 4 beers. We tried the Funnel Cake Nitro, 1916 IPA, Tilt and Swirl, and Directory for Gentleman.

Made it to @forgottenboardwalk in #cherryhill #newjersey! #njbeer #CraftBeer #nj #NJisntboring #forgottenboardwalk

Check out their taps…they’re pretty cool too.

10420291_1550220325234940_4811739905091122295_n

I also tried the Spice of Life, which they were debuting that day. I drank a full glass, mainly because some of the proceeds from that particular beer went to charity. The beer itself was really good.

In addition to their tap room, they also had seating (beach chairs!) in their warehouse area. Everyone was there hanging out, playing games, and of course drinking! You can also bring in your own food to eat, so it’s a great spot to hang with friends/family.

You can also do a self guided tour at the brewery which is pretty cool.

10428491_1550220311901608_1205107044200544898_n

They had a lot for sale, including t-shirts, tote bags, glasses (which I bought), and two different size growlers. My friend brought home two growlers…he was a happy camper!

10377255_769273766485481_5101996101120289067_n

I left feeling happy and slightly buzzed (I did not drive) and I look forward to returning! If you love craft beer and New Jersey, then you will definitely dig the experience of going to this brewery.

Tuckahoe Brewing is Expanding with a New Brewery!

Tuckahoe Brewing Company is expanding!

To learn about their beers, click Here

Find them on Facebook and Twitter @TuckahoeCo

Official Press Release:

Tuckahoe Brewing Company will soon be available to more craft beer fans in New Jersey. Today, the company announces plans to increase its production capacity and distribution area in response to the overwhelming demand for its locally crafted beer.

The expansion includes a new 10,000 square foot facility, located in Egg Harbor Township, NJ to include a tasting room and retail space. This expansion of Tuckahoe Brewing Company will be its first since its founding in 2011.

The new building will house a custom built, 5 year old, 15-barrel three-vessel brew house from Diversified Metal Engineering of Charlottetown, Canada; two 30-barrel fermentation vessels and two 15-barrel fermentation vessels.

The new brew house and cellar will give Tuckahoe Brewing Company the capacity to increase their production by over 300%, with plenty of room for additional growth. We will continue to brew our signature beers and will significantly increase our bottling capacity.

Currently the demand for our beer is greater than our supply. We’re excited to bring our beer to more consumers, while also adding equipment to increase quality and consistency. Craft beer consumers in New Jersey are getting more sophisticated, so it’s important we are able to meet both the demand and the quality expectations they have for Tuckahoe Brewing Company.

Tuckahoe Brewing Company was founded in 2011 by four friends Jim McAfee, Matt McDevitt, Tim Hanna and Chris Konicki and is located in Southern New Jersey. Partner Stu Stomfeld signed on in 2014 to help take Tuckahoe brewing to the next level.

For more information on Tuckahoe Brewing Company visit our website at www.tuckahoebrewing.com

About Tuckahoe Brewing Company

Tim Hanna, Matt McDevitt, and Chris Konicki have all been teaching and coaching at the same high school in South Jersey for the last 10+ years, while Jim McAfee has been an architect in South Jersey for the past 15 years.

2. When you see a status promoting the contest on Facebook (including the link to this blog post), you must SHARE the status and LIKE and COMMENT on it as well. If you do not like it, I have no way of tagging you as a winner.
3. A winner will be chosen on Monday, January 5th at 8pm. There will be  a Facebook post declaring the winner at that time.

Not social media savvy? Don’t want to test your luck?
