Event Description

Whether you love making beer or you just love drinking beer, this is the event that will bring young beer fans together. Meet up with us in downtown Freehold as we gather to brew and bottle a batch of suds. After this two session process you will walk away with new friends and fresh beer (how often does that happen?).

Mar 7, 2pm BREWING
Mar 21, 2pm BOTTLING

(you do not have to attend both but you must pick up your beers)

Who can attend:
This is an NJYP MEMBERS ONLY event (aka you paid your dues).
You must pre-order (aka no walk-ins allowed).

The cost is $6 per 22 oz “Bomber Bottle”. Everyone MUST order a minimum of 5 bottles per person (but you can also order 10 bottles).
Cost includes everything (license, taxes, bottles, ingredients, teachers, etc)

About the White Belgium Wheat Ale:
This is a beer styled after Blue Moon. Expect a real low bitterness, mild, smooth beer for easy drinking. An ideal summer thirst quencher. A Great Belgium Classic Wit Bier! A summer favorite! Lacy white head that lasts and lasts. Distinctive, light wheat beer with a hint of orange and spice.

Post-Event Hanging Out:
Let’s go out for food after brewing and bottling somewhere in downtown Freehold.

Jim will be hosting this event.

We will be making beer inside the same facility that holds Grape Beginnings (the wine making place). Look for signs for Grape Beginnings and park in their lot or on the street.


How long will it take to brew the beer?
We will meet first to brew the beer. This will take approximately 2 hours.

How long will it take to bottle the beer?
2 weeks after brewing we will meet to bottle the beer. This will take about 1 hour.

What do I do with the empty bottles?
Keep them for next time OR bring them back to U-brew for bottle refunds.

How do I store the beer?
After your Microbrew is bottled, always store your beer in a cool, dark place. A fridge is ideal. There are NO preservatives in our beers; shelf life is reduced if you store in a warm place. Shelf life is generally 3 to 8 months but best to drink within 2 months.

What do I wear?
Play clothes! You'll be getting down and dirty.

I want to make a different beer. Now what?
The next beer we make will be based on this survey,

So sorry but we just maxed out the number of bottles. There is not a drop of beer left :( We'll do it again next month though!
