With 75 taps currently and over 300 bottled beers, Maloney’s has one of the largest selections of craft beer in New Jersey. I recently stopped in for a pint and a chat with the owner, Florin and Chris, the manager, who does research & development , creative work, paper work, cooks in the kitchen, changes kegs in the basement, orders beers, updates the draft lists and everything else needed, along with an in depth tour to write up this article. Now onto the facts.
Maloney’s Pub & Grill is expanding their taps to reach over 160 plus 3-4 handpumps/casks at the bar. The bartenders are not beer snobs nor experts and they won’t make you feel stupid for asking questions. They may not know the answer and will ask others for assistance or even google it. Most bars will just make stuff up, right? The beer menu is very extensive covering your macros as well as all craft beer from Barleywines to Double IPAs and up and down the malt and hop chart (if that exists). I checked out the food menu too. Standard pub food but it’s an Irish place so they have a few twists like Irish Tacos.
Maloney’s has a beer club where you will get your name on the wall and some fun prizes along the way. The bartenders handle all the organization of the charts, so you don’t have to. It’s great. Maloney’s website is being redesigned right now so check them on Twitter. Maloney’s Pub & Grill is located at 119 Main Street in Matawan. Check out some pictures below from my tour.
