Tour and Tastings FAQ
The new law signed by Governor Christie in September 2012 opened up a great opportunity for folks to come to and sample at New Jersey production breweries. But what exactly does that mean? Here we provide answers to most questions you can think of, but if not feel free to contact us.
The new law allows consumers to purchase beer to go just by walking in. Consumers are allowed to purchase up to 1/2 barrel of beer a day, which is a 1/2 keg or about 6.25 cases. The law also allows you to purchase beer to consume on premise if it is in conjunction with a tour. That means participating in a tour each and every time you would like to taste beer on premise.
When are you open?
Wednesday through Friday from 3-8pm Saturday from noon-6pm, and Sunday noon-4pm. Tours are conducted on an on-going basis.
Do you sell kegs and cases for takeout?
We sell 6-packs, cases, 1/6 and 1/2 kegs.
What about growlers?
Sure, we sell growlers and will refill Flying Fish growlers. We will refill outside growlers as long as they have the Government Warning label on them. And of course, they need to be clean.
How do the tours work?
We offer guided and video tours. When the facility is in operation we're not able to walk people through all areas of the brewery, but we will do our best to give you a look at what's going on. We have scheduled tours on Saturday at 1, 2, 3 & 4and Sunday at 1 & 2. These tours are a bit more in-depth and are limited to 20 people at each session. If you'd like to take one of these tours, sign up at the tasting room when you arrive.
How much do they cost??
Tours are free, beer samples are pay as you go.
Do you have to be 21 to take a tour??
Yes, you must be over 21 or accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
I want to bring in a large group, can I reserve space?
We're not really set up to be a party space or a bar, so think of the tasting room as a place to get together, take a tour, enjoy a beer or two. It's not a place to hold a birthday party.
Can I schedule a private tour for my group?
Sure, as long as you call in advance. We offer a tour, souviner pint glass and choice of beer for $10. We do need you to call in advance so we can make sure we're staffed to give you the best experience. If you stop in with a large group unannounced we may not be able to accommodate you.
Can I bring my child?
Yes, well-behaved children are welcome accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Non well-behaved children will be offered an espresso and a puppy.
Can I bring my dog?
Not at this time, but once we set up our outdoor seating area, absolutely.
Do you serve food?
No, the law specifically forbids us from selling food or operating a restaurant.
Can I bring food with me?
At this time, we're not allowing any outside food to be brought in.
Do you serve liquor or wine??
No, just delicious beer.
What's the tasting room address?
We're at 900 Kennedy Boulevard in Somerdale, NJ 08083. Turn down Linden street and into our parking lot.
View on Google Maps.
Can I get to you on public transit?
We are less than one mile away from the Ashland PATCO station. Exit the station, turn left onto Evesham Avenue, turn into Coopertowne Plaza shopping center. Follow along the parking lot past movie theatre and Applebee's. Make a left at the gazebo, that's Kennedy Blvd. We're about 100 yards on the left.
It's really a lot less complicated than it sounds.
We are also accessible by NJ Transit buses that run along Route 30 and will drop you off two blocks from the brewery.
We want to bike over, where can we park?
We're working on getting a bike rack for out front of the tasting room. For now you can bring your bikes inside.
Do you host private parties and events at the brewery?
We're not set up to do private parties, rehearsal dinners, birthdays or anything of that nature at this point. For now we host events for non-profit groups, professional organizations, corporate outings and the like. The best way to get more information is to call our Tasting Room Manager at 856-504-3442.
