How many Jersey brewers does it take to make 20 gallons of beer for a summer festival?
As many as can fit around a Tippy brew set-up at Carton Brewing on Sunday.
The Atlantic Highlands brewery, in conjunction with Kane Brewing from nearby Ocean Township, will brew a throwback IPA that echoes Ballantine India Pale Ale.
The beer will be served at the Garden State Craft Brewers Guild Festival on June 22.
Planned to track toward maltiness, the beer is also targeted to finish out at 8% ABV, with Bullion hops walking point.
Joining the two Monmouth County breweries will be guild members Trap Rock brewpub (Berkeley Heights) and Uno's (Metuchen), and possibly some others.
