Legislation passed by Governor Christie back in 2012 has been a boon to the the craft beer scene here in NJ, particularly the ease of sales restrictions for craft breweries according to a report on The majority of the change lies in the ability for the brewers to sell beers by the glass in a what is now a tasting room scenario and the full amount that customers can now take away with them is a kegs worth of beer.

New Jersey has has no shortage of craft breweries — there are 25 in operation and another 20 in the works according to data from New Jersey Craft Beer — with recent entrants in North Jersey like 902 Brewing (Hoboken) and Bolero Snort (Ridgefield Park; they currently contract the brewing out but are planning to open their own facility). Then there’s Brix City Brewing in Little Ferry, which signed a lease in December and expects to open sometime this year.
