Tuckahoe Brewing Company will be having its second canning release on
September 7th. Along with Quatrain IPA packaged in 16 oz cans, we will release
Snack, our session IPA, in 12 oz cans. All Glowed Up is our newest pale ale
brewed with Citra, Huell Melon, and Simcoe in the whirlpool, and dry hopped with
generous amounts of Mandarina Bavaria, Citra, and Simcoe, which lend to
saturated flavors of pineapple, tangerine, with some earthiness. Persistent
Illusion is also back! Holly Beach Pumpkin is in the works and should be back on
tap soon. More cans are coming!


Departed Soles

Departed Soles Brewing Company is ramping up production in September as its
5th Fermenter comes back in line for in-house production! The brewery will
release its 1st Lager - a #DefinitelyNotGlutenFree Oktoberfest inspired
Marzen/Helles hybrid called Helles Island - at the end of the month, along with a
new rotational Milkshake IPA. For Gluten Free Craft Beer fans, the brewery is
releasing a brand new Honey Blonde - The New Jersey Ninja - at the beginning of
the month, and its Gluten Free Pumpkin Ale in the middle of September!

and licensing activities continue as expected and we are still on track for opening
by the end of 2017. We recently began to share the styles of our flagship brews
including Unicorn Girls which is our “house pale” brewed with copious amounts
of oats and wheat, a touch of lactose and a boat-load of whirlpool and cold-side
American hops. Stay tuned for more at!

Cape May

It's the time of year when the days are getting shorter, which means it's time for
Cape May Brewing Company to sponsor our team for BikeMS: City to Shore! An
astounding 28 riders have signed up, including nearly the entire production team!
The team has obliterated their $20,000 goal and will be sailing into Ocean City
just in time to catch one of our most anticipated beers: our DIPA, City to Shore, this
year in 16-oz cans! It all goes down the third weekend of September. Don't miss it!


River Horse

River Horse Brewing will release an IPA made with coveted lupulin powder on
9/29 as the September addition to their Final Friday series. That same day, the
tasting room will also feature firkins with two special stouts aged on coffee beans
to celebrate National Coffee Day. A returning favorite, Hipp-O-Lantern Imperial
Pumpkin ale will also be on draft and lining the shelves in September. Last but
not least, a Dark Amber Ale, developed to perfectly compliment BBQ, will debut at
a PBA fundraiser held at the brewery on 9/9.


Eight & Sand

September will mark Eight & Sand's one-year anniversary! This time last year we
were putting finishing touches on our beautiful tasting room, training our new
fantastic employees, and decorating our chalkboard with the four beer styles we
had on tap for our soft opening. One year later, we have 17 beers on tap, made it
to the final eight of’s Best Craft Brewery competition, and have had our
beer on tap at over 50 local bars and restaurants!



The building that Krogh's Restaurant & Brew Pub calls home turns 90 years old
(1927-2017) and they celebrate with a kick-off on Tuesday, September 5! RENO
performs live in the pub from 5-7:00 pm and a Krogh's prohibition beer gets
tapped! Their brewers took Krogh's Alpine Glow Red Ale and added adjunct
ingredients, namely corn and wheat, which were readily available during
Prohibition days! Nostalgic food specials are brought back throughout the month,
too! Also on tap in September is a Fall Harvest Saison aged in chardonnay barrels
and Krogh's delicious Oktoberfest! Cheers from good ol' Krogh's!

New Jersey Beer Co.

With New Jersey Beer Co.'s flagship LBIPA getting new fruit flavor twists and
increasing the reach of our summer golden ale Beach Watch.  We were also
thrilled to debut first lager and 600th brew, Parkway Pilsner, in our taproom. We’re
looking forward to building on last year’s debut of Chairman of the Gourd, our
autumn amber ale, with 4-pack 16oz cans coming out next month. Stay tuned!


Flying Fish

The first 1,000 cases were gone in a couple of days  Another batch is shipping
now. Jersey Juice is packed with hop juiciness thanks to newly developed
cryogenic hops that are twice as intense in flavor and aroma than regular hops.  
This hop lupulin concentrate allows us to amp up the juicy and resiny character of
the beer without the astringency caused by adding massive amounts of leaf hops
or pellets.  The result is a huge citrus, mango and tropical fruit hop party in a
complex, unfiltered beer.  This limited edition beer is available in 6 packs of 12 oz.
cans as well as extremely limited draft.


River Horse

River Horse Brewing of Ewing, NJ will celebrate the final days of summer with a
Hibiscus Mint Pale Ale to be released the last week of August as part of their Final
Friday series. In anticipation of fall, they will also begin pumping out pumpkin with
their Hipp-O-Lantern Imperial Pumpkin Ale making its first appearance of the year
on liquor store shelves this month. On 9/9, the brewery will host a Beer & BBQ
Pairing festival and fundraiser for the Ewing PBA where they'll debut a smoked
malt beer, specially made to compliment BBQ.


Little Dog

Little Dog Brewing Co. is celebrating the Dog Days of Summer with longer hours
and seasonal brews perfect for the hot weather! Join us in the Tasting Room 3-7
pm Fridays, 1-6 p.m. Saturdays & 2-6 p.m. Sundays (thru Labor Day).  This month
we’re featuring  pours of Steinerberry , our German-style Wheat with a bit of berry,
and Local Girl Blonde Ale, brewed with ginger. The brewery is less than a mile
from  the beach with plenty of free parking.     

Cape May

Cape May Brewing Company's Barrel Aged Series is back for Round Two (and
Three)! On Saturday, August 19th at 11AM, we'll be releasing Phantom Crew and
Higbee. Phantom Crew, a Flanders-style Red Ale aged for nineteen months in red
wine barrels, has a harmonious blend of malt and acidity with a touch of funk and
tannic quality tying things together. Higgle  a Golden Sour Ale aged for seventeen
months, has a sharp acidity with a refreshingly dry finish and a gentle rustic funk.
