vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.5

Atmosphere: The building is a shared use building, with a shared entry way with another business. Once you go through the internal entry way, you are greeted with a nice and inviting tap room. Well lit, nicely finished, and decently open. Beyond the initial tap room is a wide open brewing room, with tables to sit while you have beer, as well as another bar with a couple extra taps. This room is more utilitarian, and much cooler (temp), but they have some nice wood picnic tables, and some upright barrels. The barrels they use for aging beer are near the bar. The brewing equipment is roped off in one section.A really cool place to go, and a fun place to try beer

Quality: All the glassware and tasting trays are good quality, growlers available are quality swing tops, and the beer is top notch

Service: It can get busy, but you can always manage to get more beers at a reasonable pace at either bar.

Selection: 11 different brews on tap between the two bars (one is a nitro tap of a brew thats on regular tap as well). One beer available in bottles at this time, but that apparently varies based on what has been recently bottled. Merchandise available, and 1L and 2L growlers available (though not all taps are available for growler fills)

Food: None available, I suggest eating before you get there

Value: Reasonably priced, most growler fills were $7/$12, with a few being more expensive at $11/$20. I feel it is a good value for the quality you get

Overall: I think this is an excellent place to stop, especially since it is one of the best places to pick up beer from Kane. If you're in the area, I highly recommend checking it out.

Laidback and accessible for a brewery of its caliber. No lines 90% of the time, and the beers are affordable. Not $20+ a 4 pack like some breweries charge, yet Sneakbox (as one example) is on par with almost any other Pale Ale. Definitely the best brewery in New Jersey. They knock their IPAs and Porters out of the park.

Highlights are Sneakbox, Morning Bell, and Party Wave.

Quite simply NJ's best brewery and one of the best I've been to. Great vibe, large - well laid out tasting room, Friendly staff and most important - amazing beers. Their IPA's are super tasty and juicy, excellent brews. They also do Pale Ale's very well. It is their dark beer's that out them over the top though - ANTEAD, Sunday and Mexican Brunch, Morning Bell, Silent Nights, Fifth - are some of the best beers you will ever have the pleasure of pouring. NJ is really stepping up their craft beer game with many stellar Brewery's opening over the last few years, Magnify and Conclave are 2 that stand out but Kane is on another level.

Hands down the best brewery in NJ, run by good people that consistently crank out awesome, drinkable beer as well as barrel aged monsters for the beer nerds to go nuts over.

Located in a nondescript building that looks like it could house a doctor's office, Kane is a lively and fun brewery to visit. While the selection of beers available to sample on any given day isn't extensive, it's definitely quality over quantity. The staff is friendly and it's fun to talk beer when the place isn't packed. Kane is a must visit for Beer Advocates.
