Coming Soon: New South Jersey Craft Brewery


On March 1st, Pinelands Brewing Company will open to the public. Led by former homebrewer Jason Chapman, this start-up “blue collar” craft brewery is keeping things in the neighborhood with a team, ingredients, water and even the equipment (which was hand-built by Chapman and his crew) all coming from local sources. They’ve been working on things for a while now, but March 1st is the first time they’re opening the brewery and taproom to the public.

Right now, Pinelands is doing six beers and two sodas. Check ’em out after the jump.

Pinelands Brewing Company Tap List

On Tap Now:

Masons Wheat – Our American Witbier is generously spiced with lemon peel and coriander for an authentic fresh wheat ale. Single hopped with whole leaf for the freshest flavor possible
Evan John Porter – Robust Porter at heart and we infuse a delicate vanilla flavor using the finest whole vanilla bean pods. This creates a pleasant balance to the dark maltiness of the Porter
Evergreen IPA – A true-to-style American India Pale Ale (IPA) loaded with whole leaf hops in the kettle and to heighten the hop enjoyment we dry hop during conditioning. The Pines are home to about 20 native tree species, many of them evergreens
Pitch Pine Ale – Classic, clean and balanced American Pale Ale (APA) featuring a malty backbone and fresh leaf hop flavor. The pitch pine is also the most prominent tree in the Pines.
Great Bay IRA – Malty Red Ale with the hop bite of an India Pale Ale. Red Ales have the feel of the rust colored streams in the Pines. Some of those streams feed right into Great Bay, where the Mullica River meets the Atlantic Ocean just North of Atlantic City
Cannonball Stout – Loaded with five malts and roasted grain this deep black American Stout exhibits the flavors of the dark grains. A tribute to the iron ore industry of the Pines where cannonballs were made for the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812


Old Fashion Vanilla Cream Soda – We use the same whole bean vanilla pods as the Evan John Porter to create a rich and creamy homemade soda. Bring your own ice cream for an instant classic
Autumn Red Birch Beer – Mild red like an autumn day this crisp and fresh Birch Beer is a olde time favorite.
