Pretty cool spot with some nice beers and a solid selection. Had 2-3 beers I liked a lot, and looked like they started canning and barrel aging which is cool. Not a huge place and was very crowded when I went to service was ok, but not bad. All beer was served in mason jars...personally I like the ability to get 8 oz. pours and 32 oz. growlers, though I found the pricing in general to be a bit high.

Overall not on the level or Carton or Kane in NJ, but I'd put them in the tier right behind them. Some good beers and given their proximity to my house and favorite beer bar, I'll certainly be visiting them again.

Amazing beer!!! I have only had a couple I don’t like. Fantastic IPAs and Double IPAs. Smooth finish on all of their beers. One of the best in NJ

Cool little brewery in what looks to be an industrial park off Rt. 46. Quite unassuming in appearance from the outside, it's all brewery inside. There are a few tables, a moderate size bar with huge chalk board showing their offerings. Service has been prompt, friendly and knowledgeable each visit. Gets tight in there when lots of people (30-40) are present. Worth a visit for the awesome brews they're turning out!

Cool spot within something like an industrial park. It looks like a store front from the outside but once inside you are within their taproom. There are some tables to sit at along with a bar with a decent amount of seating. The brewing area isn't far from the taproom and you can see the workers doing their thing while you enjoy your beers. The service is friendly. The selection was pretty solid the day I stopped in. The only thing was that the place wasn't air conditioned, so it was pretty warm inside. However, it's a great spot to check out.

Magnify is in an industrial complex off of Route 46. Small and unassuming. Family friendly and laid-back. Very good hoppy beers, and above average beers across styles. Not quite on Kane's level, but close. Top 5 NJ brewery.

Owner is a complete d*ck. Had the displeasure of interacting with him when I was frustrated from not getting a beer for close to 20 minutes and asked to see a manager. Take your business to a place that truly appreciates your patronage. This is definitely not that place.

Update: Beer quality has really taken a nose dive. Meh beer and bad service. Seriously what’s left?

Small in size but big in beer stature.

This is a tiny location based in an industrial park area that resembles a strip mall out front. The front portion of this nano brewery is a tasting room with a bar and some tables. They will fill growlers and howlers from other breweries (which is awesome) and have glassware swag available. There were many local craft beer geeks sitting at the bar that knew each other when I was there. The relevance? They obviously are producing some really good beers that keep bringing people back. I tried some of their beers for the first time at the Extreme Beer Fest in Boston this past year and was blown away. I stopped for growler fills this past week while in the area on business - not disappointed. Magnify is producing a quality product and will definitely be going back when in the area again.

If you are ever in the North Central NJ area and are a beer geek, this is a must stop.
