Which of NJ’s 86 Breweries Are in Your County?

Last updated on October 13th, 2017 at 09:43 pm

If you scour the internet for a list of New Jersey Breweries, you’ll find upwards of 90 in the Garden State. We consulted several sources, visited dozens of websites, checked out social media and found 86 87 breweries in NJ (edit: a brand new one just opened in Ocean County).

Here are some fun facts about breweries in New Jersey:

  • Camden County has 10 breweries – the most for a single county in New Jersey.
  • That narrowly edges out Monmouth and Ocean counties, which are home to nine each.
  • There are two counties that don’t have breweries: Salem and Passaic counties.
  • In 2014, breweries in NJ had an economic impact of $1.24 billion, according to the Brewers Association.
  • Technically, a barrel of beer is 31 gallons (that one’s just an interesting fact).
  • You’re allowed to brew up to 200 gallons at home per year for personal use without a permit, according to the NJ Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

While there are dozens of breweries in NJ, you can’t tour them all (some just don’t offer them). If you’re the tour-taker-type, be sure to check out their websites for information about hours and tour availability.

Remember to make smart choices if you’re out tasting what NJ has to offer. Always designate a driver or call for a cab. Plus, if you’re a Plymouth Rock policyholder, you have the option to take advantage of the Get Home Safe® taxi fare reimbursement program.
