When Jersey Bites first checked in at Jughandle Brewing, back in January of 2016, it was still under construction and New Jersey had only 42 breweries. Now Jughandle is one of about 80 breweries in operation and it’s marking its first year in business.
Owners Chris Hanigan, Pete Artherholt and Mike Skudera have been doing a lot of celebrating, with events and specials all week, continuing through the weekend. I guess they’re pretty happy about those additional fermenters and expanded capacity. Or maybe it’s the new faces on the staff who will help out with the additional tasting room hours. Whatever it is, all 14 taps should be flowing this weekend.
If you want to hoist a delicious pint along with them at the Tinton Falls brewery, here’s what’s happening:
- Thursday, June 15: Brewery Pig Roast, 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are $30 at the door and include a first edition anniversary glass, tasting flights, and all the pig you can eat!
- Friday, June 16: Small Batch Cask Release, Noon to 10 p.m.
