Top 5 / North America

New breweries are constantly opening in New Jersey. While New Jersey isn’t as well-known a beer destination as other states, the Garden State utilizes its location to offer beer enthusiasts unique brews. With dozens of breweries throughout the state, start your beer journey with these five tried-and-true spots.


Brix City Brewing


Bergen County’s first craft brewery, Brix City Brewing opened its doors in 2015. The brewery offers a range of beers, including sours, pilsners, stouts and lagers, though its most popular is New England-style IPAs. The brewery is open daily.


Cape May Brewing Company


Opened in 2011, Cape May Brewing Company grew from a modest 1,500-square-foot space to its current 32,000-square-foot location. Take a self-guided tour of the brewery then enjoy a flagship or seasonal beer on tap. Beers are also available at bars, restaurants and liquor stores throughout New Jersey, Delaware and eastern Pennsylvania.


Carton Brewing Company


Located in the Atlantic Highlands, Carton Brewing Company is a 15-barrel brewhouse. Founded in 2011, the brewery serves beer from the tap or by the can. Carton Brewing Company uses hops and other ingredients from local farms. The brewery also utilizes water from the Atlantic Highlands aquifer as the base for its beers.


Spellbound Brewing


The Mount Holly, New Jersey, brewery’s porter won silver and gold at the Great American Beer Festival. Experience the porter and other flagship beers from the 1,000-square-foot tasting room, open Wednesday–Sunday. Spellbound features a 20-barrel brewhouse with adjacent space for barrel aging and storage.


Tonewood Brewing


Tonewood Brewing opened in 2016 in Oaklyn, New Jersey. It boasts a family-friendly taproom with a rotating draft list. The brewery is currently expanding to Barrington, New Jersey. The additional space will offer a beer garden, additional production space and event space. Tonewood beers are available at bars, restaurants and liquor stores throughout New Jersey.

A Taste of Greece

Prepare your taste buds for the trip of a lifetime in Greece. About 100 Greek products — from wines, cheese and fruits to honey and oils — earned a Protected Designation of Origin from the European Union, and the country’s most beloved dishes include Greek Choriatiki salad, tzatziki, souvlaki and moussaka, with its layers of eggplant, potato, minced meat and bechamel. And those are only a few of the many highlights.

Irwin’s Review

I recently dined at Irwin’s in Philadelphia. The restaurant is located on the rooftop of the Bok Building, a former school turned collective of small businesses, non-profits, artist workshops, a bar and restaurant. I previously visited Bok for the bar and yoga classes, and I was excited to experience the restaurant.
