Anybody have the limited edition Blueberry Ale from Triumph at the New Hope location? Everyone says it is great but it should be gone by the end of the week.

I was at Long Valley last night and the beers there were awesome as usual. I had something that was called "Jersey Fresh Hopped Ale." It was quite good and recommend it for anyone who likes their beers to be on the hoppy side.

I cannot wait to go to Port 44 when the season starts. By then they should have a complete, if not almost complete selection of brews for me to sample. Will this place have like a sampler on the menu when they have the complete lineup of beers like most other brewpubs do?

If you mean the Blueberry Ale from Triumph, I am not sure. Usually you could but since this is a very limited run beer, they might only allow you to have it in pints.

Well what was pretty cool is that they had I think 6 or 8 taps so they will have their own stuff or other NJ breweries on TAP, they had Cricket Hill and three others when I was there so I was a happy man.

I went to this place before and after the game yesterday and enjoyed it very much. It's only like two blocks up from the arena, the music wasn't obnoxiously loud like at most bars I've been to, and the beers were great.

I had their Sirens Wheat, Catskill Hop Harvest Ale, Devil's Red, and Longy's Black Market Stout. All of which were very good but the stout was by far my favorite. My friend had the Goldfinch Ale and he said that was also real good. They had Cricket Hill Nocturne on tap as well, and there was a River Horse beer that was erased on the chalkboard so I guess they had something from them too before they ran out.

This is going to be my pre/post-game spot now.

So I take it right now, only the Goldfinch Ale and Devil's Red are made in-house while the rest are from other commercial breweries?

They have the ability to produce 3-4 beers and sell them but after that I think they have to purchase. The way I understood their approach they wanted to stick to "local" brews primarily NJ ones but that was their theme.

Yeah but are they only now producing 2 beers at this moment? I thought I heard over a month ago that they were starting on a stout. I know it takes time to make these beers but brewpubs should have more than just a couple of in-house made beers.

No they are all made in-house except for the Cricket Hill Nocturne.

Where is Port 44?

It's on Commerce, you go north from the arena about two blocks and make a left and it's right there.

Ship Inn is not bad, but not great either. Harvest Moon is terrible and to me Triumph and Long Valley are the best. Only problem I have with Triumph is the crowd (only at Princeton and doesnt apply to Philly or New Hope). Going there Mon-Wed is the best. I want to try Port 44 next and I am almost done visiting all of the Brew Pubs in NJ.

Ship Inn has a nice Best Bitter.... but man the food is weird these days - one day good the next poopage. I wasn't too into their Smoketoberfest. I had this AMAZING smoked porter up in Lake Placid -- I mean this was like WOOD CHIPS - so good.

I ought to try triumph in New Hope. My husband just said he loves Triumph. I haven't been to Princeton in a while. What's Long Valley?

Here my husband is going out to Sonoma and I'm trying to think of what he should ship home and I can't stop thinking about beer! I should have gone to Sonoma too -- but honestly I get really stressed about flying -- I'm fine flying - but the whole IDEA of it freaks me out too much. And YES I DO get freaked out daily about how unsafe driving is :P

I tend to like the beers at Triumph Princeton a little better, but I find that I enjoy the food more at Triumph New Hope. Since my move, I now live about 20 min tops from Triumph Princeton so I go there almost once a week.

Long Valley Brew Pub is a small brew pub but I think it is very good. Both the beers and the food are awesome there, but the only issue is that it is in the middle of nowhere. They just also installed earlier this year an outdoor bar as well when weather permits, and it is awesome to sit outside at the bar and watch the TV there. Below is a link to them:

Long Valley Brew Pub

Another good place is Trap Rock in Berkeley Heights. The beers there are awesome as well, however if you look at the menu, you will see the food is pretty expensive to say the least. Good for a drink or 2 but that is it.

Trap Rock

Yes it is right by the arena. Here's a map that shows the train station, Port 44, and the arena.

Long valley isn't that far from us. Looks great -- and I'll be sure to miss the live music if I can!

Now I have to check out your trap rock link

EDIT:
Hahaha my husband dinged Long Valley! Annoying part of Jerz - so I guess it's West and now South of 78 now too. Nahh -- we'll probably go there one day just not this Friday.

Trap Rock is a little bit of a haul -- I guess it's not so bad, just down 78 ... but still -- I hate heading east of 287 now... I'm a hick :P
