There's No Place Like Home...

We're beginning to think Dorothy had it easy, making her way to Oz en route back home.

Here at Two Ton, we're still on the hunt for our forever home - and it's a search that's taken us all over NJ, though admittedly, we'd like to stay in Union County. But finding the right sized space with all the amenities a brewery would need for daily operations... well, that's proving tougher than we originally anticipated. Roll top doors; ample, well-lit parking; adequate ceiling height... OH MY! 

Fortunately, like Dorothy, we've got some good friends helping us out along the way. And far fewer witches and flying monkeys to contend with.

Until we find our space and get the doors open, continue to look for us at festivals and in bars and liquor stores around NJ (ruby shoes and heel clicking not required). Coming up soon is one of our perennial favorites: The Morristown Big Brew Festival on Oct. 7 and at the Central Jersey Beer Fest on Oct 14! See you there!

Get Your Beer Here...

Last weekend, we were hanging out with the crew at Lone Eagle Brewing Co., where we brewed our latest collaboration: Ducks on the Pond. It's a hoppy lager with a rich melon-y taste, thanks to an old-world decoction mash brew and some new-world dry hops, Azacca and Motueka.

This week, we've kept our crew on the road delivering kegs almost as quickly as the Cleveland Indians are amassing wins. So head to your favorite watering hole at game time and grab yourself a pint before it's gone!

EXTRA-Special News!

Sunday morning, and we find ourselves honored and humbled.

An enormous THANK YOU to everyone who came out to the Big Brew Festival yesterday in Morristown. We were delighted to be pouring three of our favorite winter brews on a chilly March afternoon: The Extra-Special Chocolate Vanilla Porter, the winter Wassale and our Brute Squad Barleywine, an anniversary offering in celebration of our upcoming three-year anniversary on March 10!

And then, to find out that we were awarded the People's Choice Award for the Extra-Special Chocolate Vanilla Porter ... WOW! Thank you all for your votes - and we hope you'll continue to enjoy it as long as the cold weather is here to stay!

 

Happy x3: Two Ton owners Doc, Matt and Jim at the Morristown Big Brew Festival 2017

Resolved: A Brighter 2017!

A new year brings with it a certain purity and promise that you just can't find anywhere else. We're done wrapping up the last of our loose ends from 2016 and have decided to get the new year off to a fresh start.

If you saw the Two Ton crew at any festival last fall, then you also saw our "You Give, You Get" signs and piles of dog treats. Many of you inquired about them; even more of you donated. And we are pleased to report that our neighbors at the Friends of Linden Animal Shelter were grateful for all the love they received from you all during 2016. 

Here at Two Ton, we're a family business, born and bred in New Jersey. We are proud to call this state home, excited to do business here and eager to make those personal connections that make this small state so great. We are locals and we support locals - and we are so thrilled that so many of you believed in our cause as well.

So, we start 2017 with hope in our hearts and a resolve to make this year one for the record books. Come out and find us at beer festivals, tap takeovers, bottle releases and more throughout the year. We love your feedback, your friendship and your faith in us. 

One Year Later...

Last year, Two Ton made its festival debut at the Whippany Fire Department's Garden State Brew Fest. And it was amazing. We put up a tent, brought our best beers and T-shirts, overstuffed said tent with eager volunteers ... and BOY did we feel the love. Got off to a great start with our friends at Two Roads, met a bunch of the industry veterans, gained some festival pointers from other local NJ breweries ... and just made a splash in general.

So where will you find us this weekend? That's right. Back at Garden State Brew Fest ... a delicious way to taste your way through some of NJ's finest breweries AND raise funds for the Whippany Fire Department at the same time.

Tomorrow, we're offering our White IPA, Kolsch and pleaTed wheaT (that delicious Hefeweizen collab brewed with our good friend Joe, from Manskirt Brewing). Get your favorites on tap... and meet the brains behind our incredible team: Doc, Matt and Jim. 

Want a T-shirt? We'll have them, too. Dog treats? We're baking up a fresh batch right now. Get it all, Jersey Fresh, Saturday, 9/24 starting at noon.

It's Hammer Time!

Last year, we were super excited to bring you Hammer & Ale, our inaugural Imperial IPA. Hard to believe that a whole year has gone by since we last brewed this beer. But in that time, we've grown a lot as brewers and we think this newest iteration is really going to be something special. 

We will be brewing Hammer & Ale this week and plan to use more than 60 pounds of our favorite Yakima Valley hops to yield the bright, bold, tropical citrus flavors and aromas we're craving now that the first leaves have started falling from the trees.

Always sad to see summer come to an end, but we're filled with a sense of possibility now that the weather is changing. Especially with festival season just around the corner. Look for us around the state in the weeks to come - and stay tuned to find out what else we've got brewing.

Prost! 

Bark twice if you're in Milwaukee...

We are not in Milwaukee, but we are out in the park today at the Beer, Bacon, BBQ event in Lewis Morris Park. And in addition to meeting some awesome people this afternoon, we are thrilled to report that our dog treat fundraiser to support Friends of Linden Animal Shelter brought in more than $100. 

Thank you to everyone who donated today and to everyone who came out to meet us today!
