Best AC Beer Fest yet! The celebration of the suds began for us on Thursday night at the NJCB Wingcraft tap takeover event. We were finally able to try brews from NJ breweries we haven’t visited yet – Glasstown, Rinn Duin, etc. It was also a great networking event where we saw many of our local friends and finally put faces to the names of some of our social media friends.
Although we wanted to attend, we unfortunately did not go to any after parties. Fingers crossed, some of the restaurants and bars should still have many NJ special offerings on tap.
We attended Session #2 (Saturday 12-4) and were immensely impressed. The crowd was energetic, the breweries were endless and the local food/restaurant presence was excellent! We were especially pleased with the new layout and better organization relative to previous fests. I was very grateful to the AC Convention Center’s staff for the additional efforts to keep everything clean, most notably the bathrooms.
Congrats to the NJ breweries that won awards and thanks to all the breweries around the country (and world) for the special batches and always delicious variety of beers. Thanks to the NJ beer community and local restaurants for all the organizing, pre and post parties and events and an overall outstanding celebration weekend! Cheers!
