ABOUT THE NEW JERSEY BREWERS ASSOCIATION

   Microbreweries produce small batches of beer for sale to wholesalers and retailers both inside and outside New Jersey. That means you can purchase New Jersey craft brewed beer from the shelves of liquor stores and in pubs around the country. Thanks to a 2012 law change, microbreweries are now allowed to sell up to 1/2 keg (or approximately 6 cases) of beer for consumption off premise. Also, as part of a brewery tour, consumers are allowed to purchase beer for consumption on premise. Breweries are not allowed to operate a restaurant or sell food. This is an opportunity for people to enhance their educational tour experience with an on-site tasting. Because we value our relationships with our restaurant and tavern partners, the law was purposely designed to not allow breweries to operate like a bar or restaurant.

    Brewpubs are restaurants that produce small batches of craft brewed on site and may sell their own beer by the glass for consumption on premise. They may also sell their beer for carry out in bottles, jugs known as "growlers" and in kegs. The new law allows brewpubs for the first time to sell their beer off the premises to licensed retailers throughout the state through a New Jersey beer wholesaler.
