“In the last few years, quite a number of them have opened up throughout the state. There’s a number of them that are in the vicinity of the shore, part of the fun is finding the tap rooms and taverns around the shore that have these beers on tap,” he said.

Artisans, has been considered the oldest brewery in Toms River developing their favorite blends for about 13 years. They are now enjoying the new competition because it proves that this is in fact what consumers want. Artisan’s owner Peter Gregorakis said that he has confidence in his business this summer due to the tourists and popularity of beer.

“It’s the freshest beer you can have, this comes right out of the tank and it’s fresh, very expensive but it’s a lot of work,” he said.

Brewer Dave Hoffman explained what goes into to the whole brewing process.

“It takes about an average of 8 to 10 hours to make one batch of beer, it works out to be around 20 kegs worth of beer at a time.” he said.

Overall, it takes a lot of time, effort, and money to brew beer but it pays off since the beer is delicious and fresh. It’s a great time to be a beer lover here in the Garden State!
