Top 9 craft breweries in NJ you need to visit
I love beer. Better than wine, beer pairs well with food and is a great thirst quencher.
It's hydrating and delicious.
I love local beer. Craft IPAs with high alcohol content and a little bitterness hit the spot.
This week I had a great meeting with my friend Sen. Mike Testa in Millville. He picked a local craft brewery called Glasstown Brewing Company. What a great place. Friendly staff, owner-operated.
Paul followed his passion and has now been in business for more than 8 years! The beer is excellent. I tried the "856" IPA. It's a double IPA, with 8.5% ABV named for the local area code. I bought some "609" to take home and try later this week.
