Notes:
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 Wednesdays and Thursdays 5-8PM, Fridays 4-8PM, Saturdays 12-8PM, and Sundays 12-5pm. The entrance to the brewery is 6. E. Washington Ave, street parking is available.

I visited Carton Brewing Company on the first truly warm day of Spring in 2018. The brewery is located only a very short walk away from the Atlantic Ocean (or more correctly, Sandy Hook Bay) in Atlantic Heights, NJ. If you visit, the modest sized, serving area is upstairs and had eight offering on tap with perhaps another half dozen prepackaged available for purchase.

On the Saturday afternoon I visited, six, 4 oz (118 ml) tastes were offered for $5, but note a 4 pack of Sundae went for $20. The vibe is hip and youthful (several dogs and babies), but the room was not big enough and it was quite crowded. The whole servicing space and bar are fairly small for the crowd and one will wait for service a bit, although the mood is convivial, cooperative, and really just looking to have fun.

Definitely worth a look if you are in the area or from nearby, but I might the buy prepackaged beer at a retail store next time.

Located in a residential area across from a school. Why are so many breweries located near schools....What does that say about children? The building is small and old but has a cool vibe. The staff were both super helpful and super friendly. My wife and I had a great time. Add to that the excellent beer and you have a winner if you are looking for a beer destination in New Jersey.

A little gem hidden away (literally) in Atlantic Highlands, NJ. Really had to look to find it but once I did. . .

Took the 10 minute, 1 room tour (mandatory) before heading upstairs to the taproom. Small, but quaint, and very crowded for a Sunday evening. My flight was enjoyable, as were the staff. Everyone was very friendly.

Would definitely go back.

have been a few times only to grab cans

first off, i live roughly an hour from Carton and getting there was easy besides finding the final destination. the first time i went i drove by it twice before i realized which building it was. it's right off the main street and has no signs or anything to point out that it's Carton Brewing. good job of hiding in plain sight

cool little place, great beer and super nice people

Finally managed to get out to Carton to check it out. The tour was short and sweet which was nice. The taproom was pretty rad, They had an old Dead Kennedy's vinyl playing on the turntable. The selection was good, the service was good too. It's a cool spot! Glad I finally made it there.

Very cool somewhat out of the way location but 100% worth the drive from central PA. Great selection of well crafted beers on draft when I went with 077Nelson being a standout. Boat really surprised me with its flavor. Service is outstanding and super fast. I highly recommend stopping by if you can.
