Tuckahoe Brewing Co hosting The Art of Beer on 11/2!

For Immediate Release:

Tuckahoe Brewing Company Hosting “The Art Of Beer” Curated by Local Artist Mike Bell on November 2nd

Join us at Tuckahoe Brewing Company on Friday, November 2nd from 6-9 PM for a unique experience, “The Art of Beer”, an art exhibition curated by local artist Mike Bell featuring several works of art with a common theme… BEER.

The show features local artists including Rob Reed, Diane Roberts, Rodney Ibarra, Tania Pomales, CJ Smith, Jan Bendyna, Josh Williams, Elise Bond, Dave Roesch, Smith Jordan, and more!

The idea for the show was developed by Tuckahoe partner Matt McDevitt, Sales Manager Rob Callaghan,and artist Mike Bell while sampling some tasty Tuckahoe beers.  Art and craft beers go hand in hand, brewing beer is comparable to an artist painting a canvas.  Both are creative processes from beginning to end, involving the blending of different elements to create a vision. Artists and brewers are imaginative and adventurous with their craft, and both aspire to create something that is unique and interesting.  Craft beer label art has become a key piece of the craft beer experience, so we decided to expand on that idea and bring art to the brewery. There were no restrictions given to the artists, they were free to create  anything, with any medium. Whether it be painting, drawing, sculpture or photography, the common thread is the beer theme. Artists only had to include a beer reference or creates something using a beer vessel such as a can, growler, or keg.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the South Jersey Field Of Dreams and Breast Cancer Awareness.

Tuckahoe Brewing Company is located at 3092 English Creek Ave, Egg Harbor Twp, NJ 08234

Backward Flag Brewing Celebrating Their 3rd Anniversary 9/15/18!

BACKWARD FLAG CELEBRATING THEIR 3RD ANNIVERSARY THIS WEEKEND! 

Backward Flag Brewing Company in Forked River celebrates their 3rd anniversary this week with good beer, food, music and special guests. 

The Celtic Knot, a favorite at local breweries, will be on hand with their delicious fish and chips and will be joined by ElemeN7ts by NitroGirl who will be creating frozen confections and ice cream with different flavors of BFBC beer. The soundtrack for the day will be provided by Ty Mares Music.     

 However, as we have seen, the foundation and mission of Backward Flag has always gone deeper than just the brew, so there will be no new releases for the festivities. 

“We want this anniversary to be less about the beer and more about the people”, said owner Torie Fisher.   The people are the organizations, non-profits and charities who collaborated with Backward Flag over the past year. Each month BFBC employees choose a charity and a portion of the proceeds go to the organization. The anniversary party is an opportunity to honor, recognize and present the proceeds to the organizations. 

Some of the beneficiaries are the Forked River Volunteer Fire Department and the NJ State Elks Army of Hope, which was created to assist families who have a member called to active duty with the National Guard or military reserves. The Captain Buscio Foundation, named for Captain Dominick Buscio of the Jersey City Fire Department,  and  created by his widow after he died of a heart attack at the too young age of 39.  It provides complimentary pulmonary and cardio examinations through Deborah to fire fighters and first responders is another beneficiary.    

The DV Farm, operated by vets and created to help combat veteran homelessness will also be recognized at the event.  DV Farm is a service of Dysfunctional Veterans one of the largest online vet communities. 

Arms 2 Artisans, a non-profit created by Backward Flag earlier this year will be represented by one of the first graduates, Lizz Devenny, who will  be speaking about her experiences. 

As part of the festivities this week BF also did a collaboration brew with Backpacks for Life, who provide backpacks filled with toiletries and other every day essentials to vets and families who cannot provide these for themselves.  The brown ale will be called Rugged Road, so be on the lookout for it at the brewery and in cans. 

We invite you to check out the links listed below to find out more about these great organizations. The party is this Saturday, 9/15, 12-9 PM and it promises to be a great day, so don’t miss it!

Zed’s Beer Celebrating First Anniversary on 9/9/18 with a Party, New Beer and More!

ZED’S BEER MARKS FIRST ANNIVERSARY 

Celebration to include New Beer, Glassware and Giveaways 

MARLTON, NJ – August 27, 2018 – Zed’s Beer/Bado Brewing will celebrate its one-year anniversary on Sunday, September 9 with a party, a new beer and much more. The brewery located at 19 North Maple Avenue in Marlton will mark “One Down” and celebrate many more to come with a party from noon until 6:30 PM. 

To commemorate the occasion, founder and head brewer Geoff Bado will introduce a new beer inspired by the brewery’s namesake, great-grandfather Zed. A coal miner in Chop, Hungary, Zed was known as an amateur brewer who would throw a block party and share his beer with the entire village. 

“Zed’s in Chop-Original Marzen is the kind of beer Zed himself might have made,” said Bado. “While Zed’s original beer recipe is lost to time, I researched what he might have had access to. The grains are all European—Munich, Vienna, Pilsner, Melanoiden. The hops are all noble hops. I think he would have been able to produce something we would currently identify as an Austrian- Marzen.” The result is a malt-forward beer with a bit of a nutty flavor and a light sprinkling of bitterness. “It’ll be easy to drink, like a modern Oktoberfest, in keeping with our philosophy of bringing approachable craft beer to South Jersey,” Bado added. 

Since opening, Zed’s Beer has put 42 different beers on tap, not including 24 varieties of shandies. Zed’s in Chop—Original Marzen will be one of at least 12 beers available for the anniversary party. Others include top-selling Zed’s in the Universe—Pale42 and a reprise of Zed’s at the Party—Birthday Cake, which literally sparkles. Zed’s popular shandies, a blend of current beer varieties with homemade syrups or sodas, will also be on hand. 

In addition to the beer releases, the September 9 festivities will feature special “One Down” glassware, a limited-time offer with purchase of a pint for $10. The brewery will also offer swag giveaways throughout the day, every hour on the hour. 

“We’ve been amazed and delighted by the terrific reception from the community all through our first year,” said Zed’s Beer co-founder Lori White. “It’s clear people are as excited to have a local brewery as we are to educate them about the brewing process and serve new beers.” 

Zed’s Beer supports the local community by collaborating with as many local food producers as possible. The brewery sources all fruit and honey for its beers from Cheyenne’s Roadside Market—Evesham Township’s only remaining farm. Customers will be able to enjoy four beers featuring locally-sourced ingredients: Zed’s in NJ—Blueberry Blonde, Zed’s in the Orchard— Golden Peach and Zed’s in the US—American Brown with Honey. And Zed’s in Chillum— SMaSH gold is made with grain grown and malted in Shilo, NJ, by Rabbit Hill Malthouse. 

Zed’s clientele can expect more of those locally-inspired varieties in the coming year as well as a few surprises. “We have a lot of great things in store for year two that will keep people coming back for more,” said Bado. “Much of it is too soon to share, but safe to say there will be new beers, new swag and who knows? You’ll have to come back to find out.”
