Hoboken Brewing

Hoboken Brewing Company has finally launched onto the NJ scene after over 5
years of planning! Offering two styles that they hope will attract both craft beer
lovers and beer skeptics alike- the Bodi Blonde is a light crisp ale infused with
organic coconut flakes while the Cityside New England style IPA is brewed with
loads of Amarillo and Mosaic hops. Hoboken Brewing plans to expand their brand
throughout NJ via self-distribution and they are working towards opening a
taproom in their flagship city of Hoboken!


Cape May

October is a time for everything creepy, which means it's perfect for Cape May
Brewing Company's ghost-themed Barrel Aged Series! Next up: The Lady in
Room #10. Wildly complex, she spent a year-and-a-half in barrels, then three
months on black currants and plums. Our chocolate porter, King Porter Stomp,
will be available in cans, and we've got our Cape May IPL: crisp like a lager, but
bursting with a bright citrus aroma. And don't miss our Halloween party on
October 27th -- prizes galore!


Angry Erik

Presenting Angry Erik on ice! Angry Erik Brewing partnered with Das’ Creamery, a
local ice cream shop to turn one of our brews into a frozen treat! The result-
Hopbiscus, a vanilla ice cream with our wine barrel-aged Honey & Hibiscus
Tripel. It went so well future flavors are already in talks! Dainty Viking Bomber
Bottles were released in the tasting room at the end of September. These
Elderflower Belgian-Style Blonde bottles won’t last long, so make sure to stop

in and get yours while supplies last!

Me Up, Butternut", their collaboration with Mike Kivowitz of New Jersey Craft Beer.
Then at Three B's Bistro in Lakehurst, Icarus will begin producing the Icarus Pine
Devil, an exclusive saison for the restaurant.



We can't believe we have been open one year already!! That's right, on October 8
we will be celebrating the first day we poured beer in Merchantville.  We will have
Merchantville Pumpkin Mash on tap in October, along with our popular New
England-style IPA, Haaze.  Our small system allows us to have many styles and
flavors on our eighteen taps.  Look for our tasty Coconut Cream Ale, Totality R.I.S.
aged in bourbon barrel, and Citra Promised.t!

Oktoberfest Lager. Next week, the brewery will release Deeper Shade of Sole, a
Dark Rye Saison, and Ghost of Pumpkins Passed, its Gluten Free Pumpkin
Spiced Ale, is now available as well! New Tasting Room hours are Weds 5-9,

Krogh's Restaurant & Brew Pub, at 23 White Deer Plaza in Sparta, has their own
Oktoberfest on tap with a malty flavor, a well-balanced hop bitterness and a clean,
dry finish topped with an off-white, foamy head! Following this seasonal, Krogh's
taps their Pumpkin Ale made with 120 lbs of locally-sourced pumpkins (pictured)!
This harvest ale tastes like pumpkin pie with hints of ginger, nutmeg and
cinnamon. Get yours with cinnamon and sugar on the rim of the glass! Krogh's
has an Abbey Ale coming on tap in November, which is unfiltered with a malty,
Belgian yeast character to it. Follow Krogh's at untappd or at Cheers

We are excited to announce that we've doubled our capacity with the addition of
two new 30-barrel tanks! More capacity equals more beer, and that’s the best
news for beer-lovers! Our tap list for the fall includes many fan-favorites, like the
IPA No. 2 and the Hefeweizen, as well as our seasonal Belgian Dubbel and sweet
potato ale, the New Potato Caboose. Come try some yourself on October 28th,
when we have our Halloween party!


Double Nickel

Double Nickel Brewing Company of Pennsauken will re-release Lawn Surfer, a
juicy American IPA, on draft only.  Brewed with Citra and Equinox hops, this easy-
