    To help find their beer, outside their brewery (they have their own tap room, where you can buy, drink, and fill growlers), use the following link:

    http://cartonbrewing.com/find-our-beer/

    More info from their website

    http://cartonbrewing.com/

    Tasting room availability is posted on Facebook on Wednesday and Saturday before the sessions begin.

    https://www.facebook.com/cartonbrewing/

    Special releases: When there are new cans we set up a table downstairs for efficiency, but outside of those first couple days they are upstairs in the tap room, which is staffed by really nice people.

    FAQ

    To enhance the Carton brewery experience, the following local food recommendations have been suggested.

    http://www.kunyasiam.com/ basicly across the street and BYO, very good thai that a growler of Dub rounds out nicely

    http://www.thecoppercanyon.com/ serious level southwestern versions of jersy restaurant food the place we make Carton Canyon for

    https://www.beermenus.com/places/19405-gaslight
    owned by the copper canyon guys dependably aspirational pub grub good craft list

    http://www.ahwinebar.com/restaurant/ proper NJ bar with boat on tap

    http://www.christinesitaliandining.com/ small place proper restaurant Italian BYOB

    https://www.fairmountaincoffee.com/ certified organic coffee company

    these are just the one's on our street and just the highlights at that there are also 2 pizza places, 2 delis a good bagel shop and a proper diner

    there's also great Mexican place and a couple more pubs like chubby pickle in highlands. bahr's/mobys which we make wit whale for is classic shore seafood and 2 of the 4 places doing that right there

    Another place to go is TSTBBQ - Texas Style BBQ with a New Jersey attitude, in Leonardo, NJ.

    It's attached to a mini-golf place so lots of fun too.

    2 lights north on 36. take out or eat in.

    http://www.tstbbq.com/

    best bet is tell the tasting room servers what your'e in the mood for and how far you'r comfortable traveling and they will guide you well


    How to get to Carton (The BOAT STORY)

    The boat from the city:
    On weekdays the Atlantic Highlands stop on Seastreak ferry is 5 blocks straight down 1st Ave (.4 miles 8 minutes walk on Google maps)

    On weekends there is a shuttle waiting at the Connors Highlands stop on the ferry that will run you over to the Atlantic Highlands stop (if you are nice to the driver they very well may drop you at Carton as you pass)

    OR you can take the ferry to Connors Highlands, walk down Shore Drive to Kranky Cyclesand rent a bike (.3 miles-6minute walk on Google maps) and rent a bike. They have motorized and regular cruisers which can be peddled down the Henry Hudson bike path to Carton (2.9 miles 15 minute peddle according to Google maps) as well as out Sandy Hook for some beach time with stops at any of our local seafood shacks along the way.

    Cherry Swishr showing up on shelves here in South Jersey. Drinking one now; it’s excellent.

    [​IMG]

    Love the dank hop profile, slightly smokey finish. Tart cherries are nice, too, just a great beer as always. I had the peach variant of this last year on-tap, I think I like this one a little better. I got mine at Canal’s in Marlton. It should probably be at Traino’s in Marlton (its on beermenus) and probably Roger Wilco in Pennsauken as well (didn’t check though). You guys are awesome, thanks for thinking of your southern neighbors!!

    PS- I also picked up some (kinda old, tbh) Stillwater Yacht as well.....Sit Down Son was better; hope we see it again someday :grin:

    thoughts on whether the magnify collab sees distro to the "places that get it"? seems like lately everything has, to varying degrees... raise, 02210, sundae, etc....

    Mine wasn't too green. I'm typically not a big fan of adjunct-laden IPAs but this beer was a......Delight. (sorry I had to)

    I absolutely love pistachio flavor. I strongly dislike rose water. I’m looking forward to trying it out.

    Here’s an explanation of the new Brewers Board:



    We’ve got Carton, &telier, now this. I am enjoying the evolution of Carton and look forward to what the future holds.

    Is it Aug 1 as in the date, is it Aug I as in “Augie” (assume it’s not). Something else?

    I can now buy boat 10$ a four pack 5 minutes from my house. Years ago I would’ve never imagined this possible. It is really crazy, and I bet it just keeps getting better.

    I just think that the way Carton goes about it just seems like the right way to me. I hope I get a chance to get down there and try this one.

    Has anyone stopped by the brewery recently and know if they have the table setup for cans on the 1st floor?

    I'm in a walking boot so I'd rather not walk up those steps but I'll make due if cans are at the bar.

    Yes, they turned the downstairs into a can/merchandise place which is pretty nice. At least on weekends they have people down there. Not sure about weekdays.
