Where We Were – Baby Brewery

Ever look back on old pictures and think wow, that’s not me, that couldn’t, oh wait, yes it is.  Well that’s what we do a lot lately when people show us pictures of the first time they visited the warehouse or of opening weekend, or the day the Brewhouse was first delivered.  A little over a year ago, our brewhouse was just being delivered, and we had a vague idea of what we were doing, as all the planning in the world could only slightly prepare us for the monumental amount of work to come.  At that point all we could think about was getting our Permits finalized, construction, and one day Brewing, anniversary thoughts just weren’t a thing yet.  We finally ended up opening Friday January 13th.

Where We Are

As of today (6.26.17) we have brewed over 300 BBLs of beer (Almost 10,000 Gallons) and are on tap at 55 Bars/Restaurants across Monmouth and Ocean Counties.  We have released 28 Unique beers and countless other variants (Randalls/Barrel Aged), and this continues to grow every day (new Randall testing every taproom day) and every week (churning out a new beer a week on average).  We’ve managed to cement our place in the community for both having great beer and doing things in a completely different way (Pineapple Habanero Pale Ale, Smoked Pils, Weizenbocks, etc).  We’ve also made sure to give back to the community through events raising money for both Beach Haven Volunteer Fire Department as well as Island Height Volunteer Fire Department, and hosting fundraisers for Extended Arms of Toms River, and local chapters of the Police Unity Tour as well.

Where We’re Going – Anniversary

On July 12th we’ll be running our first canning day, canning a Double Dry Hopped version of Ella Ella Australian IPA.  This was our first IPA we brewed and has consistently been one of our favorites with a ton of grapefruit and tropical flavor typically packed in Australian hops meshed with a clean American IPA.  In honor of our 6 Month Anniversary (and Christmas in July) we’ll be releasing cans at the Brewery that weekend as well as multiple barrel aged releases which we’ll be announcing a little closer to the weekend.
