Of course, it wouldn’t be a party at The Shep without beer, and they’ll be featuring Hoboken Brewery’s classic brews as well as debuting brand new fall beers, which will be flowing all night {along with the 50+ brews that already rotate on The Shep’s taps daily}. The celebration is free of charge to attend, btw, and we say there is no better way to kick off autumn in Hoboken than with seasonal beers, live music, and a free party.

    Arielle is a born-and-bred Jersey girl and like a true NJ native, half her diet consists of bagels and the other half pizza. As a graduate of both American University and City, University of London, she’s been a passionate writer ever since she wrote her first “book” in the first grade. When she’s not furiously typing away at her keyboard, she spends her time ticking places off of her “to travel to” list, trying any and all new foods, and trying to stop herself from spending too much money at Zara.
