Vibe: Located in the old Flying Fish brewery su 100. From the front it looks like an ordinary office park. The tasting room is located to the left of the office enterance and has a nice gravel patio settting outside, tables, chairs, some games, to take advantage of the warmer months. It has a feeling of a small backyard gathering. Inside, the theme is the NJ boardwalk. It has a nice size area, about 20 or so tables to the right with mulitple chairs around each. The bar is standing room only where people gather and engage in good conversation. Alot of the people greeted their seem to be on a regular basis. The tables were painted in brightly striped colors, similar to those beach umbrellas. Old nostalgic pictures of shore related relevance hang around the room adding a bit of history and intrigue. Doors are brightly painted and numbered as well 2 skeeball machines sit upon first enterance to give you that boardwalk feel. A portion of the procedures goes to a charity so skee away. To the left of the enterance, is a section for canned beers, merchandise and speciality one offs. The overall area was clean, open, well kept. The brewery lies towards the back behind glass doors which let you get a good view of the set up. A brewer allowed me back for a tour, where they had 3 60bbl boil kettles, a few larger fermenters for their flagship offerings, and multiple smaller bbl ferementers for their smaller batches. Also present was a small 1bbl experimental pilot system. Overall the vibe was positive, as well the service and people who frequent here making for a pleasant experience.

Quality: The funnel cake is one of their flagship beers, as well What the butler saw, and their shiver ipa. Their pocket trick was good, malty, and showed the fruitiness of the mossiac hop. A stout i sampled was roasty and also solid. In all the beers are balanced and drinkable, with focus on likable beers without being weighed down.

Service: The service was very friendly, the two servers, who also double as the brewers were friendly and quick to help out in decisions of their beer, engage in good conversation, and offered comparison samples.

Selection: Forgotten boardwalk has 3 steady flagship offerings, as well as 4-5 seasonal offerings. Thier flagship beers include a ipa, wit, and cream ale. Thier seasonals rotate but had a roasty sout, white ipa with smoked pineapple, which was really nice and smokey at the time. I also secured a one off Saison, that utilizes the Dupon Saison yeast strain right from the brewer, so I'm excited to try this. Overall about 8 or so beers are offered with multiple events listed and upcoming offerings with a little bit of each.

Great place for happy hour if you can find an area to hang around , beer selection was ok but they have had better and as for the service it wasn't bad but I felt as if there wasn't enough employees .

This is in an unassuming industrial park area of town, and there is a small sign showing the entrance to the place. There is a small bar with no stools, and a bunch of tables for folks to sit at. Skeeball machines seem to be the main attraction after the beers.

A few of the house beers were on draft along with some one offs. You can get a flight of 4 four ounce beers or a pint. The beers we had were good. Service was a bit slow, but there was a line of folks waiting at the bar for fill ups.

Great environment & love the skeeball. Love the staff, always so friendly! They even tried to make time to chat when they were super busy during their 1 Year Anniversary party. Funnel Cake & What the Butler Saw are really good. Had a mango saison from them that was a limited run, very good! After getting more into beer, I will say some of the beers do come off a little bland. Worth a visit though!

Cool place to chill and grab a few brews. A boardwalk theme that is great for kids with a nice patio out front for the smokers. the huge warehouse in the back looks very promising as expansion occurs. Every beer has its niche and none miss the mark.

Fun vibe, I liked the boardwalk/carnival theme. Service was excellent. Friendly attentive, and knowledgeable. Beer selection was good, with several IPAs, saison, wit, scotch ale and smoked stout on tap during my visit. There's plenty of tables in the tasting room, board games are avilable, not to mention ski ball. So it's conducive to hanging out and enjoying the beer and atmosphere. Fun place!

The beers here are less than average. A few beers were okay, none were great and some were very bland. The tasting room is very small and very noisy.

Visited 2/7/2015 with the wife and 6 month old baby G. Great times. Very friendly bartenders willing to talk about their brews and the brewing process. Most drafts were 6 bucks, with cool and appropriate glassware. Since I've never had their stuff before we went with a sampler for 8 bucks and got 4, 4 ounce beers. Beers were solid definitely worth trying. I enjoyed their 1916 IPA as well as a Rye Porter. They also had their Funnel Cake on Nitro, which was a treat. I cant imagine it any other way. The tasting room had a good amount of tables, two ski ball games, board games to borrow and clean restrooms. While they do not sell food, WaWa is right around the corner, so be sure to pack a snack!

Really weird vibe in this place. Boardwalk themed, weird carney music playing, only games were two old skeeball machines which were really loud and annoying when people were playing. Beer was solid though. Will def be back to fill up a growler, but will not be staying to hang out. Maybe in the summer when the larger brewing area in the warehouse is a little warmer.

This is a cool little place to check out. Located in the old Flying Fish space, FB is basically a tasting room, with a small standing bar, and some tables to take your beers to if you're planning on hanging out. There are a couple custom skee ball machines, for random entertainment. Nice merch section, with glassware, apparel, etc., and cans available to take home.

The beer didn't blow me away, but there were some pretty good selections. About 10 to choose from, if I remember correctly. The Funnel Cake Ale was the beer that drew me to visit the place, but actually that ended up being my least favorite of the bunch. Other selections were pretty basic, but all decent. The service was ok. Just a guy behind the bar doling out samplers.

I don't get out this way often, but I'd stop back in for a revisit. Again, nothing really mind-blowing here, but something tells me this place is worth keeping an eye on.

As I taste each beer all I taste is business plan. The beers aren't bad they are solid, but they are definitely run of the mill. I wish the creativity in logo-ing and brand-ing (a boardwalk nowhere near water?!?!) was channeled into flavor creation.

Fun place to hang out. Great concept. Beautiful new facility, tap room. Love the 1916 Shore Shiver IPA and the Funnel Cake Ale on nitro. Worth a trip to Cherry Hill, NJ.

Not a bad set-up for a brewery, with a nice little bar area, a fun theme, and a nice inside and outside drinking and seating area. The music played is reminiscent of a bygone era, and I like the skeeball set up inside. I will need to update my review of the brewery once they've released some more of their beers, but the potential looks like it is all there right now.

The only BIG complaint I have is that they are overpriced. Their 4-beer flight and their pints are priced at $6 a piece, when most breweries price their flights and pints at $4-$5 at the brewery. This adds up.
