If that's Budd Lake, you're about 10 minutes from Czig Meister. Some of the best craft beer in NJ in my opinion!

I love Czig, just was at StoutFest.

How do I always hear about these awesome events AFTER they occur?! arg

Because people talk about them and what happened there after they happened, and by the time they roll around again next year you've already forgotten until they happen and people talk about them again.

You can still go and clean up the leftovers. They've usually got a bunch of tap for a few weeks after.

“James on Main” is right there too - excellent food. There aren’t many tables, so I’d suggest a reservation.

Only 5 min from Jersey Girl which also makes a fine beer

I thought Jersey Girl's beer was only okay. But I did really enjoy sitting in their outdoor patio area on their big Adirondacks. That alone made it a nice visit.

Czigmeister and Jersey Girl kinda dance between top two in the area for me. Poor Man Skirt is good but pretty consistently #3 for me.

Edit: JG's King Gambrinus is one of my favorite beers of all time though.


Batumi19 t1_j9u17j2 wrote

I haven't had the King Gambrinus yet, so I'll definitely try that one next time I go to JG.

I've never been to Man Skirt. I know it's right there, but I've just never made it over. Usually we go straight to Czig and then to Marley's for wings or order pizza from Davila's and then fall into a food coma.

I really think that brewery should change its name to Liquid Haggis or Lion Heart or something like that if they want to keep the Scottish theme.

Marleys is the best, what’s your favorite sauce? It’s hard for me not to order the Bang Bang.


Batumi19 t1_j9u68sv wrote

Jamaican Me Crazy or the African dry rub. I think the African is one of their newer flavors. Will have to try the Bang Bang!

And the worst trivia host this side of the state. Unrelated to the brewery, which is wonderful.


Batumi19 t1_ja381h5 wrote

I think I remember seeing that trivia crew once. They took forever between questions, and people would just pick up their phones and Google the answer before turning in a slip of paper. Some of the questions were really dumb too.


I_Am_Skipples t1_ja388uq wrote

It’s weird because the same group has different hosts all over. The guy who does Sheridans on Wednesdays is amazing, but the crew in Hackettstown kinda blows.
