New Jersey Brew Magazine is now launched. Look for it at your favorite pub or package store.

Please support our magazine and frequent its advertisers. Also find and like us on Facebook.
I have not kept up with this page for a long time but will attempt to keep it as current as I can. You can read my Beer Guy columns in The Press of Atlantic City in At The Shore every other Thursday and in MidAtlantic Brewing News every other month. Of course now in New Jersey Brew bimonthly also.
