Baseball Trip Sells Out!  

Designated as an official Draught Board 15 Special Event,the Gaslight's annual trip to
the Newark Bears on August 4 was a complete sell out nearly a week before the
Saturday night game.  Forty baseball and beer (not necessarily in that order) fans
enjoyed a tasty BBQ, Gaslight beer - including pitchers of Three Ring Ale directly from
the fermenter- and nine  innings of entertaining baseball.  The game was highlighted
by 4 home runs and an incredible price of $1 per beer beginning in the sixth inning.
Here are a few pictures from the game.

Jeff Levine Wins State Brewing Gold
Everyone's favorite Gaslight bartender and beer
guru, Jeff Levine, took home championship ribbons
at the New Jersey State Fair, one of the largest
home brewing competitions on the East Coast.  Jeff's
pale ale walked away with the first place blue ribbon
and his wit took third in the speciality category.
