Cricket Hill Brewery welcomes Mehmet Kadiev as the new head brewer! Mehmet has made the trek up from the Hog haus Brewing Company in Fayetteville Arkansas and brought with him a wealth of brewing knowledge! He and his girlfriend Beverly will be living in Jersey City and making the trip across route 3!
Take a look at their new website, crickethillbrewery.com. They have updated it with new graphics, a new format and loads of new information!
Cricket Hill’s old friend Hopnotic IPA, one of their flagship brews, has undergone a facelift! With a new label and a matching 6 pack carrier the art seems to leap out at you and screams “Try Me”.
Their newest release, a Belgian Dubbel is the second of their Small Batch releases this year. This fine brew was Keith Kobal’s 3rd place winner in the Cricket Hill home brew contest last winter. This ale at 8% has a full-bodied and strong malt background to balance the pleasant banana and nutmeg flavor. Don’t let the higher alcohol or the coppery color fool you–this Ale is very refreshing and will keep you smiling through the long Summer nights!
The Cricket Hill Friday tours continue to bring a lot of new faces into their local brewery! Every Friday from 5 till 7 they hold a tour with samples available. They try to have live music available and as always Rick gives his enlightened speech around 6:30. Come and join us!
