Great atmosphere once you get into the brewery. Located in an industrial complex and was a bit difficult to find at first. Beers are top notch

I dare you to find another brewery that has a more "we don't do this for the money" business approach than Kane Brewing Company.

They very rarely bottle any of their beers, they're only open two days out of the week, they're tucked inconspicuously inside an industrial park behind a Costco that people have to squint their eyes to find, and their year-round offerings only consist of 2-3 beers, which you mostly likely won't try to consume an excess of on their premises because they don't take kindly to people eating at the brewery.

Despite everything they have going against them, Kane is, and strives to be, the quintessential neighborhood brewery. Even with the limited number of beers they offer, all of their beers are above and beyond what you'd expect from the same state where Flying Fish and River Horse are considered "local favorites" -- Please let me know if you find a better IPA produced from this state than Head High/Over High and their variants. Or a better coffee stout than Kane's Morning Bell (and other variants.)

Kane also has a tendency to keep their loyal customers on their toes by churning out unconventional yet surprisingly delicious variants of their own beer, (they most recently put out a session beer using Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand) and it probably wouldn't be very shrewd of me if I neglected to mention that New Jersey probably hasn't seen a more hyped-up beer than Kane's A Night To End All Dawns,

For a brewery with a very limited distribution chain, Kane has some very snazzy merchandise and growlers that you can purchase both at the front and back bars; unlike other pickier breweries, Kane will also be more than happy to fill growlers from other breweries, and doesn't seem to impose a limit on how many you can fill in one trip (when I asked one of the staff members standing behind the growler fill station what the limit of beer I can take out of Kane was, he pulled out his calculator and typed in "2112 oz" for me)

Not the greatest place to sit and stay a while, but a definite must visit for anyone in need of a reminder that one need not necessarily travel all the way to Vermont to grab some quality beer.
