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.
