South Jersey has also benefited from the nationwide boom in craft brewery, with standbys like Yuengling, the oldest brewery in America, expanding their profiles at tap houses to compete with regional products. More than ever, the area beer experience is as much a local as a cosmopolitan one, with signature products on display sometimes mere miles from their bottling source.
Craft-batch brewery startups are also growing rapidly in South Jersey, with a handful of local beer-makers joining in the revolution at their own facilities throughout the area. Visiting these spaces has become a must for beer lovers who want to experience the process first-hand. Self-guided tours culminate in tasting rooms where guests can chat up brewmasters and sample the varieties of brews.
