• Overview

    Alternate Ending Beer Co (known by the locals as "AE") is a destination brewery located in Monmouth County, set in a former movie theater. All of AE's signature craft beer is brewed on location with a state-of-the-art brewhouse, and specialty beers include Juicy IPA, traditional lagers, oatmeal stouts and delicate mixed cultures.

    Owner Scott Novick partnered with Talula’s of Asbury Park to provide a casual yet vibrant menu centered around sourdough square pizza pies, which are perfect for pairing with beer. The menu also offers a variety of non-pizza dishes, including the hit California Dreamin' burger, plus free-range chicken wings, seasonal salads, gourmet burgers and sandwiches and housemade desserts. A full bar offers wine and handcrafted cocktails, some of which are barrel-aged and on tap.
