I was first introduced to craft beer maybe a little over 10 years ago. I really started to get into it even more when I started homebrewing 5 years ago, and now I really have a good feel for the different styles out there and which ones I like. I have a couple personal friends in the beer industry, and I love trying out the latest new beers as the craft beer industry grows and evolves.
Depends on what style we're talking about. Belgian Wit - Allagash White, German Black Lager - Kostritzer, American Amber - Troegs Hopback, American IPA - Heavy Seas Loose Cannon (also great on cask!), Sweet Stout - Southern Tier Mokah Stout, Pumpkin Ale - tie between Southern Tier Pumking and Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale
Absolutely! There are a few NJ and NY breweries that are walking distance from train stations. Gaslight Brewpub (South Orange), JJ Bitting Brewpub (Woodbridge), Defiant Brewery (Pearl River), Harvest Moon Brewpub (New Brunswick), and Triumph Brewpub (Princeton).
