SIGN THE BILL PHIL!
It’s been almost 2 months days since Senate Bill S3038 landed on Governor Murphy’s desk and he has chosen not to take action. People all over New Jersey have voiced their ceaseless support and the New Jersey Senate passed the bill with a not only bipartisan but unanimous 77-0 vote. NJ Craft Brewery regulations need an immediate change!
In response to Phil’s inaction and along with the Brewers Guild of New Jersey we’d like to introduce Brew Jersey: Sign the Bill Phil!
As of August 18, fourteen breweries (Icarus Brewing, Buttzville Brewing, Ghost Hawk Brewing, Farmers and Bankers Brewing, Seven Tribesmen, Toms River Brewing, Fort Nonsense Brewing Company, and Departed Soles Brewing, Autodidact Beer, Eighth and Sand Beer Co, Czig Meister, Death of the Fox, Hackensack Brewing, and Manskirt Brewing) have signed on to participate in this collaboration and brew their own batch of Brew Jersey: Sign The Bill Phil.

BREWED FOR A SINGLE PURPOSE:
TO FIX A BROKEN SYSTEM
Brew Jersey is a nationwide open-ended collaborative beer to support the breweries of New Jersey as we rally against unbalanced and unjust regulation. All brewers are invited to participate by using the open-source recipe and label template to brew their own batch of Brew Jersey. We’ve spearheaded this project on behalf of the Brewers Guild of New Jersey and plan to release our first batch in January 2023.
New Jersey breweries are facing unprecedented challenges. Harsh rules recently imposed on breweries jeopardize each small businesses’ livelihood as well as the future of craft beer in the Garden State. Restrictions on tasting room events, private parties, food, television programing, and live music are making it harder for breweries, not only to grow, but to survive. Each day that these rules persist, New Jersey breweries are stripped of their ability to compete in the marketplace and the opportunity to create and innovate in their industry.
We are calling on ALL New Jersey breweries to show their support by brewing their own batch of Brew Jersey!
