Neshanic Station: Heather from Readington Brewery sent information about LagerFest scheduled for Saturday, February 10 2024 from 12:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Heather says…
Lagers are taking over the taps at the Readington Brewery! Experience a diverse selection of twelve meticulously crafted lagers, each brewed ‘to-style’ in the traditional fashion. This is a FREE event. This year’s LagerFest menu will feature fan favorites including our Danish & LoCal Lagers and new editions including a Mexican Lager! We WILL still have non-alcoholic and gluten-sensitive options including hard seltzer, our award-winning hard kombucha, and delicious craft soda made with real cane sugar, and our new non-alcoholic hop-seltzer. There is something for everyone here. Scroll past the agenda to see the full line up.
The LagerFest menu debuts at noon on Friday, February 9, and we are celebrating with Flight Friday. Try four 5oz pours for $15 and see which lager is your favorite. You can choose all 4 pours or let your beertender choose for you!
Señor Tacos is on Readington Hop Farm at 4pm. They have tacos, empanadas, quesadillas, and more! They have vegetarian and gluten-sensitive options as well.
From 6:30-9:30pm, the incredibly talented Jake Mosca, is gracing the taproom with mesmerizing guitar, fiddle, and soulful vocals. There is no cover for the music!
Get ready for a cosmic musical journey…While you sip on lager styles from around the globe, hear “Diamond Eye Jack” play all your favorite Grateful Dead tunes. From right here in central Jersey, Diamond Eye Jack brings the spirit and energy of the Grateful Dead to life with their exceptional performance. Their set starts at 6pm –arrive early to claim a table and stay groovy. There is no cover to see this performance. This portion of the evening is 21+. We are family-friendly from 12-6pm.
Thought Saturday couldn’t get any better? Designer Dawgs from Clinton is serving their delicious menu on the Hop Farm! With a variety of gourmet hotdogs to choose from (including vegetarian options!) and an amazing chef, you cannot be disappointed!!
Flights will be in limited supply on Saturday, especially in the evening. If you are emotionally-attached to the idea of getting a lager flight, make sure you come on Friday night or early on Saturday afternoon.
Sunday, February 11 is SuperBowl Sunday. We are open from noon until 5pm. This is the last day where all 12 lagers will be on draught. Get your lagers in while you can!!
