About the Brewery

So you can guarantee you’ll find some NJ Beer Co. beers when out and about in Hoboken, Jersey City, or other cities in Hudson County

The Beer

After you’ve learned how it’s made and completed your tour, it’s time for the best part — tasting the beer. Wander over to the tasting room, where you can see the full list of brews written on a floor-to-ceiling chalkboard behind the bar. The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable, and happy to provide recommendations if you find yourself struggling to decide on which beer to get. Or, order a flight of six beers, to sample a variety. Carry the paddle of multicolored brews over to a table before diving in to taste each of the unique flavors.

Gather around one of the barrel tables or grab a seat at the bar and get drinking. Sip your way through some of the classics, like the LB IPA or Parkway Pilsner. In the winter, nothing beats the blood orange IPA offered here, which is light and citrusy and will make you forget just how cold it is outside. Or, opt for something a little smoother like one of the seasonal stouts.

If there is a particular beer that stands out to you, great news — you can buy some cans to take home. With names like PATH Pale Ale and Heaven, Hell, or Hoboken and creatively designed cans, these beers also make the perfect gift for a fellow NJ friend.
