This is a hole in the wall, literally I think it’s a carved out hole in a packing strip. Always a MASSIVE selection though. Very small, hard to find a seat around barrels. Separate room has space, but no A/C in that room. So if it is above 85...hard pass

Located in an industrial complex, one front tasting room w large round tables a small bar, merch, and coolers for to-go beers. Larger back room in their production space (parts roped off), some seating mostly standing and a longer bar with all the same beers as up front. Layout was a bit weird and the place could feel cramped at times (place was slammed on a Saturday afternoon)

Beers were awesome, IPA/DIPA/NEIPA heavy with a good amount of imperial stouts, but even within the same styles there was a variety in notes and flavors. All were pretty high ABV (~6% and up). Selection was huge too, I think they had 18 different beers on tap plus a house made soda

Only complaint was that it took a while to get a beer, there was no separate spot for flights or to-go cans so it just one long line that would move slow due to most of the people ordering flights, sometimes the wait was 10-15 minutes in line per round. It was probably compounded by the fact that it is a destination brewery for NJ, the only brewery in the overall area, and it was a Saturday afternoon

Overall, it brewery with amazing beers, friendly staff, and an average set up/lay out. Will definitely be back when I am out that way again!

Very cool spot with a huge selection and very good beers. The bartenders were nice but they were swamped the whole 2+ hours we were there; took a while to get beers and pay every round.

Loved their beers and will for sure be back.

Always at least 10 beers on tap, employees are great and helpful with explanations. Never had a beer that was TOO hoppy, sour , bitter, malty or hot from chili peppers. Some are my favorites ( Ella-Ella ) some I drink because it's been a while since I drank it. I've been there since opening weekend. More of an over 35 crowd and friendly. Room can get crowded, but they have a spillover room also. I highly recommend it.

Very relaxed vibe and knowledgeable staff. Beautiful mural and artwork throughout the tasting room and warehouse really help with the vibe as well as having an interesting variety of beers offered.
