Breweries in NJ: 67 Local Craft Brew Spots To Raise A Glass

0
 
 
     

Breweries in NJ are having a moment—there seems to be one popping up in every town in the Garden State with a tasting room or beer garden offering the best of local craft brews. With fresh flavors mixed with hops and grains, there’s a taste and place for everyone, where you can sip on tasting flights, fill your growler from the tap, take a tour of the brewery or load up on branded gear (we see you Cape May Brewery). Not so into beer? The recent hard seltzer craze has spread to most breweries, so you can swap a cold, foamy one for a light refreshing fizz. So gather your pals together for mom’s night out, schedule date night with your S.O., or even round up your crew for a weekend afternoon trip to a family-friendly brewery in NJ. And if wine is more your speed, check out our guide to New Jersey wineries and vineyards.
