OUR BEER

 

the extra-special chocolate vanilla porter - 8.0 %ABV

Our award-winning porter is like drinking chocolate milk for grownups.  Rich, creamy, and delicious, it’s brewed with Madagascar vanilla beans and Dutch cocoa and served on Nitro.  Roasted barley and caramel malts take the lead, with gentle Golding hops behind them. The vanilla flavor hits your palette first, with the chocolate’s roasty undertones offering the perfect counterbalance. A new twist on a time-honored tradition.

Wrought Gold Blond Ale - 5.5% ABV

Not everything we brew at Two Ton is a heavy hitter and Wrought Gold is the perfect answer to your search for a light, quaffable beverage. This blond ale boasts smooth, round flavors of malt and slightly juicy Citra and Liberty hops, and fermented with an English ale yeast. In a time gone by, this might be called a Working Man’s Beverage, but we find it’s a popular choice for anyone who’s put in a long day.


the written word: ginger hibiscus ale - 5.5% ABV

Several months ago, Two Ton hosted an “Iron Brewer” challenge including some of the best homebrewers in the state of New Jersey. The winning team was invited back to the brewery to scale up their winning recipe and brew it with us. This delicious amber ale packs a flavor punch due to large whirlpool additions of ginger and hibiscus. Congrats James and Simon! Cheers!


Juicy Details White IPA - 6.8% ABV

This Belgian-style IPA lives up to its name. A juicy twist on a classic style, this beer features a mixed-yeast fermentation and big flavors thanks to Hallertau Mittelfruh, Azacca and Nugget dry hops. This beer is bright, hazy and flavorful … the perfect refreshing spring beer.


full send saison - 8.1 %ABV

The name ‘saison’ comes from the French word for season and we hope you find this beer to be the perfect beverage for the spring and summer seasons. We brewed this beverage with two different kinds of yeast. It’s bursting with flavor additions thanks to grains of paradise and lemongrass in the boil, with additional lemon zest added to the fermenter for a top citrus note.


crispy boi lager- 5.6% ABV

A traditional German-style lager brewed with 100% German ingredients and traditional brewing methods. Hallertau Mittelfruh hops provide delicate florals and noble hop aromas, but the beer finishes with an irrefutable snap. This beer lives up to its name!


Situation Normal… How Are You? American Pale Ale- 6.9% ABV

Our homage to the American Pale Ale is brewed with five different grains, Cascade hop extract in the boil and was dry hopped with Idaho 7, Belma and Chinook. It was named for a fairly obscure reference to a line from Star Wars.


BRUTE SQUAD BARLEYWINE ALE - 10.2% ABV

Our American style Barleywine is hoppier than its sweeter English counterparts. The robust malt profile imparts flavors of caramel, toffee and a light roastiness while the assertive hop snap conceals any boozy flavors you’d expect from its high alcohol content. This beer was aged on medium char French Oak.


kitty paws sour IPA - 5.2%ABV

Remember the candy Sour Patch Kids from when we were kids? Yeah, so do we. Fondly. That combination of tart and juicy/fruity is a flavor we’ve been dying to re-create here at Two Ton. Kitty Paws began as a New England style IPA with a touch of pleasant tartness to bounce around the palate. It imparts a melon flavor like ripe honeydew and a beautifully bright yellow and hazy color without being aggressively sour. 


the written word: identity cri?is Coconut Brown Ale - 4.5%ABV

identity_crisis.jpg

This beer’s identity crisis began during brewing and fermentation. What started as an entirely different concept in recipe form soon became an excuse to add dozens of pounds of roasted coconut. Because honestly... why not!? And thus emerged this delicious coconut nut brown ale. 


the written word: pastry stout - 8.0% ABV

One of the latest creations from the pilot rig wriTTen word series is this delicious dessert beer. This pastry stout is bursting with notes of toffee, caramel, cinnamon and chocolate. This beer is basically the liquid version of a heath bar, which only grows in flavor layers and complexity as it warms.


RETURNING SOON:

Hammer and Ale Imperial IPA - 9.1% ABV

hammer_and_ale.jpg

Redefining what a West Coast Style IPA can be, Hammer and Ale tantalizes the senses with wonderful hop flavors and outstanding aromas, but without the harsh bitterness that characterizes many IPAs. Our recipe features a blend of three malts that provide a sweet backbone to support a symphony of hops, including Nugget, Magnum and Chinook in the brew, then finished with Simcoe, Nugget and Idaho 7. It’s basically hop candy.

Alex Biese, Asbury Park Press, April 2, 2019:

Hammer and Ale, Two Ton Brewing Co., Kenilworth

If you're looking to explain how beer can rise to the level of high art, exhibit A ought to be Hammer and Ale, the flaghship imperial India pale ale of Kenilworth's Two Ton Brewing Co.
It's a beer rooted in the old school West Coast IPA tradition, but a remarkably delicate hop and malt interplay gives it a rich, smooth sweetness that owes something to the current North East IPA craze. It's an astounding balancing act that belies its hefty 9.1 percent ABV.


JAMAIS VU BELGIAN-STYLE TRIPEL - 9.2% ABV

jamais_vu.jpg

It’s the opposite of Déja Vu. You think you’ve had a Belgian Tripel before … but we took ours in a whole new direction. Chamomile starts things off strong, but look for hints of cardamom and orange zest somewhere in the mix. And watch out … it doesn’t taste like it’s 9%!


low orbit ion cannon NE IPA - 7.1% ABV

low_orbit_ion_cannon.jpg

Fruity, juicy … everything you’ve come to expect from a NE IPA. Front and center is a big bouquet of tropical fruit flavors courtesy of Citra, Columbus and Cashmere hops, plus additions of lactose and pineapple. Our version finishes exceptionally smooth, dry and crisp.
