Visiting Kane two weeks ago was part of a three brewery trip along the Jersey Shore. We started at Carton, Kane, then Little Dog. All three have entirely different atmospheres and feels.

Kane is a relatively large facility. You first walk through a small bar area where they sell merchandise, which leads into a larger warehouse setting with barrels abound on some walls from floor to ceilong, brewing vessels and a larger bar where they pour beers, fill growlers and offer flights. There's a fridge as well behind the bar for large format bottles they're selling that day. Picnic table style seating in the larger room is conducive to sharing a beer with friends or making new friends on the spot. Lines moved quickly, and I think it was even a little more crowded than usual this day due to the ANTEAD lottery pick up that was going on. Atmosphere is more industrial / warehouse type feel. If you're looking for a smaller, cozy setting this is not the place for you.

Perhaps it's a function of the size of the facility and the number of visitors but I felt the staff was a little disconnected from the audience. They were very busy this day and of course I would not expect someone behind the bar trying to serve 100 people to sit there and chit chat with me about the beer, but my impression was a slight disconnect from the customer.

Overall, good service, cool hang out spot, good beer, and good price for flights.

Excellent setup, large picnic tables coupled with delicious beer equals socializing with random people and its a blast. Great atmosphere and even better selection of brews. Many different one offs and rarities each time you go. Defnately check this place out!

I went there on Hurricane Joaquin weekend. I had two sample flights of 4 each four oz. (each for $4) and purchased a special edition Anniversary Ale. l tried the Head High, Overhead, Driftline, Hopline Citra, Single Fin, Deep Rooted, Ripple and Parhelion. Good stuff! Great atmosphere! Worth a trip if you are in NYC!

Really great brewery. They put out some of the best IPAs I've had and their Hob Lab series has produced some real gems. The recent "mistake" beer Citra Pale Ale from the series was absolutely outstanding. Even their Morning Bell with Sumatran coffee from a local coffee shop really impressed me. Great place, great people, great vibe. Love Kane. So grateful to have it in NJ
