Brewery + Tap Room FAQ

Do you serve food?

Per NJ state law, breweries are not allowed to serve food. However, you are welcome to bring your own food. We encourage you to support the many excellent eateries near the brewery. You’re also welcome to order delivery. Food is not welcome, at any time, in the production area.

Do you serve wine or cocktails?

Per NJ state law, breweries are only able to serve beer that was manufactured on location. Patrons are not allowed to bring in outside alcoholic beverages including wine or champagne (except for private events which require a separate permit). However, feel free to enjoy our wide assortment of ‘Malt’ernative beverages such as Evil Water and Broad Street, as well as our robust line of Bolero Snort Beers.

Are dogs allowed?

After a few months of trials – we are happy to welcome well-behaved dogs to the brewery. For the comfort and safety of your pets and our patrons – please only bring your furry friends if they are used to being around people and the loud noises produced by said people. We also ask that dogs do not sit on the couches.

Are children allowed?

We’re are happy to welcome families back into our brewery and beer garden.  Minors will be permitted to both areas provided they remain at their table with an adult.  Strollers or baby carriers will not be permitted.  Any child who requires a carrier will need to be in a body carrier.  We also have baby changing stations available in both restrooms in the main tasting room.


Do you fill growlers or sell beer to go?

We offer a variety of beer available in cans. We also offer select beers in crowlers or growlers based on availability. Not all beers will be available for crowler or growler fills. We do not sell growlers. You are welcome to bring your own growler regardless of branding.

**We only fill clean growlers.**

Growler pricing is based in 32 or 64 ounce growlers. Non-conforming growler sizes will be subject to the 32 or 64 ounce pricing, or may be rejected completely.

Crowlers and growlers are strictly for off-site consumption and may not be opened at our brewery or on the property

Are we required to take a tour?

In January of 2024, New Jersey stopped requiring a mandatory brewery tour for each visit.  So you are no longer required to take any facility tours. However, we would LOVE to show you around the place, so please check in with any member of our staff during your visit to schedule a facility tour.  

Is there a tour fee? An entrance fee?

Tours are free but may be subject to availability. There may on occasion be a slight wait.

There is no cover charge to enter the brewery, beer garden, or tasting room.
