Fall Craft Beers in New Jersey

Enjoy seasonal drinks at these craft breweries!

New Jersey has an abundance of craft breweries throughout the state, where you can raise a glass to fall with delicious seasonal beers—from Oktoberfest varieties to pumpkin ales. 

Restaurants & Brewpubs

For great food paired with craft beer, stop by one of the many breweries offering a full food menu. Gaslight Brewery & Restaurant in South Orange always has eight beers on tap at any given time. This fall, try the Oktoberfest, a lager made with German Munich and caramel malts.

Tun Tavern Brewery & Restaurant in Atlantic City makes their own Oktoberfest too, as well as other seasonal beers that rotate based on availability. In Woodbridge, wash down casual comfort food with the Coal Train Porter on tap at J.J. Bitting Brewing Co.

Tasting Room Roundup

Take a seat at the bar or a table at Fairfield’s Cricket Hill Brewery, where beers such as the Fall Festivus IPA serve up serious seasonal flavor. Cape May Brewing Company also offers autumn-inspired brews for on-site savoring—be sure to try the Honey Porter Nitro, Apple Bomb fruit beer or Mop Water 5-Spiced Ale™ while you’re there.

For traditional German beers that are made of non-GMO ingredients, order a pint of Oktoberfest Lager or Winter Wheat Doppelbock at Butler’s High Point Brewing Company under their Ramstein label. At Flying Fish Brewing Co. in Somerdale, sip seasonal OktoberFish, made with European malts and yeast. River Horse Brewing Company also offers your choice of specialty releases and brewery exclusives in their Ewing tasting room.

Before you grab a cold one this fall: Be sure to visit the official website or social media channels of your favorite brewery to learn the latest hours of operation and any restrictions on visiting.
