Brew Jersey

We’re starting 2024 with a Clean Slate!

Raise your glasses to our latest creation: a refreshing New Jersey Pilsner brewed to celebrate the unification of the Brewers Guild of New Jersey and the dawn of a new era for craft breweries around our state!

We want to thank every single person who supported the cause and advocated to free craft breweries in New Jersey from the unjust regulations we’ve been battling for years. Community and collective efforts can influence political change for the better and now we’re ready for a clean slate.

Without those regulations holding us back we have already begun planning all new events, collaborations, and releases. We can’t wait to share them all with you soon!

Phil Signed The Bill!

Starting on January 16, 2024, breweries in New Jersey took one giant leap forward, we no longer have to operate under all of the archaic restrictions that were holding back our ability to give you the best experience possible. With this bill being signed breweries will now be able to:

• Offer snacks and other non-alcoholic beverages (chips, coffee, hop water, soda, etc.)

• Collaborate with outside vendors including food trucks

• Host unlimited onsite events (live music, trivia, etc.) and private parties (charity fundraisers, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.)

This will directly translate to our ability to host new and exciting events and collaborate with new freinds just in time for our move to Brick!

For more information on the reforms this legislation is rolling out check out the details HERE.

Lastly, we couldn’t have gotten here without you! Thank you to everyone who contacted a local politician, signed a petition, or grabbed a can of Brew Jersey and Sign The Bill Phil. Your support helped push this legislation forward and we can’t thank you enough!

We did it!



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!
