Test brews go smoothly at Carton

An inside look at the test-run brew days at Carton Brewing.

Augie Carton, who founded the Atlantic Highlands brewery with his cousin Chris, says the two beers – a generously hopped session pale ale à la kölsch yeast and a double IPA brewed July 17th and 18th, respectively – are on track: "30 barrels of each beer bubbling away."

There are still some minor details to get squared away at the brewery, but an early August launch is the hope of the crew at Carton, which brewed those two initial beers under a temporary license from the state.
