Posted: Updated:
Toms River, NJ (My9NJ) - Now that summer is finally here, most people would love to sit back and relax with an ice cold beer. Well with several micro-breweries popping up around the Garden State, beer lovers have a ton of options!

In their latest issue, New Jersey’s Monthly Magazine has a summer brews guide which is currently out on stands now. Editor Ken Schlager says these micro-breweries are the latest NJ trend.

“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!
