John and Ed from Somers Point Brewing visit the studio to talk about their brewery located at the old Somers Point ice company. The building at this time is still undergoing construction but they are expecting an early spring opening, possibly the beginning of April. Make sure you check them out on Facebook and Twitter to track of their progress and for the grand opening date.
We especially want to thank Ed for being a long time listener of the show. He actually recognized Amy at the Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival last year and we haven't heard the end of it from Amy since. Thanks Ed.

It's not a new brewery but what happened to us. We had a brewery that was supposed to visit with us but cancelled at the last minute and left us to talk about whatever we could think of. We are missing one member, as we sometimes do, but the show must go on.
Honestly, I can't remember the things we discussed but I'm at least one of us said something stupid and meaningless.

We got a visit from Megan of Human Village Brewing in Pitman. She brought over some good beer to share with us. One of the members of the show was drinking and enjoying a beer that they usually don't drink.
Rich from the Fear of a Craft Beer Planet joined us and sat in the engineering chair, filling in for the kid. We had a really good time and talked about a lot of things including how the new ABC rules will effect a small brewery like Human Village.
Thanks to Megan and Rich for joining us and make sure that you visit Human Village in Pitman, NJ and follow them on social media.

When I found out that my town was getting a brewery, I had to track the owner(s) down and find out what the story was. Jack was kind enough to accept an invitation to come talk to us. On his birthday too. He also brought alone their brewer, Ingrid, formerly of Tuckahoe Brewing.
They discussed the plans that they have for their space and the beers that they plan on brewing. Needless to say, the gang is looking forward to the opening. It will probably be Rob's new home away from home.

We recently attended the Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival where we sat down and talked to various brewers and folks that attended. The tables were turned on us when Rob, Amy and Eric (Ian was MIA for this) sat down with Richard and Jay from The Fear of a Craft Beer Planet podcast. They are one of the first and longest running craft beer podcasts in NJ. We talked about some of the beers they had and how we all got started along with some other funny insights.
Make sure you check them out wherever you get your podcasts and on the Osiris Network. They are also on FB, Twitter and IG. They even have a website and if look, you can find their "lukewarm" line where you an talk with Richard.
Stay tuned for our episodes from AC Beerfest coming up very shortly.
