Having decided they had something to contribute to the very exciting conversation going on in craft brewing, cousins Chris and Augie Carton teamed up and started Carton Brewing. In the seashore community where they were born and raised, the Carton boys found a turn-of-the-century red brick warehouse and adapted it to accommodate a state-of-the-art Newlands Systems 15 barrel brew house. 6 E. Washington Avenue was turned into an independent craft brewery and their hats were in the ring. Applying a passion for stimulating flavor to inspiration found all around them, they set about their goal: to make tasty beer in the place their tastes were formed.

Brewery Tours on Thursdays and Fridays 5-7:30PM and Saturday & Sunday 12-5pm. The entrance to the brewery is 6. E. Washington Ave. However, please park in the lot located at 120 First Ave, Atlantic Highlands, NJ.

I have to say while in terms of personal preference only a couple of their beers have knocked me out, it is a great place to visit. Enthusiastic and detail oriented brewing, and definitely interested in originality and pushing the envelope. Fun and knowledgeable crowd, Worth a trip.

Tight quarters but great staff and a good selection of various styles - very tasty beer - six samples for $5, how bad can that be?

Vibe: It is pretty laid back feeling and informal.

Quality: Beer is excellent quality!

Service: Someone is waiting to give you the quick brewery tour, and the bartenders are very responsive even when crowded

Selection: 8 taps, 1 cask available for tasting, as well as regular growlers, waxed growlers, and cans for take home (though the waxed growlers and cans aren't guaranteed to be in stock) and there is plenty of merchandise

Overall: A very pleasant place to visit. Plenty of people were there, but it didn't feel overly crowded. Highly recommend visiting if you are a fan of their beer

Carton Brewing, a great, busy hang in Jan, best beer pub atmosphere and crowd in Monmouth County.

Great blends of local and visitors. Small enough to create a real tight standup atmosphere. Every one is great spirits, friendly, eager to talk.

Expanding into a much larger space soon, so come visit the original tasting room.

Where else but Jersey would you get a brewery across the street from an elementary school? It's a great place to come on a weekend, take a short tour, and sample (generously) of some great beers.

I was able to stay til closing one time and spoke with the workers, who were awesome, and enthusiastic. A great, fun place to be in New Jersey.
