It’s Pumpkin Beer Season! Get Some At These Jersey City Breweries


For those that love pumpkin, they really love pumpkin. And one of the tastiest ways to get a sip of it is through a quenching pumpkin beer – especially since they only come around one per year!

If you’ve been on the hunt for a few pumpkin beers to enjoy amid this beloved season, head to these breweries near your Beacon apartment that have been hard at work brewing up pumpkin and other fall-flavored beers. Pick up a six-pack as well to enjoy at home!

902 Brewing Co., located at 101 Pacific Ave, Jersey City which is seven minutes from your Beacon apartment, pays tribute with its name to the Hoboken apartment where founders Colby Janisch, Tucker Littleton and Andrew Brown took their homebrewing to the next level.

Starting with a three-gallon pot and a homebrewing kit, the idea of 902 Brewing Company fermented into a business in August of 2012. Colby received a homebrewing kit as a present and was hooked right away. As a mechanical engineer, he quickly became obsessed with new equipment mods, process improvement and experimenting.

Departed Soles Brewing Company, located at 150 Bay St #2a, Jersey City which is eight minutes from your Beacon apartment, opened its doors in 2015, becoming the first modern microbrewery to open in bustling Jersey City.

Departed Soles produces a cornucopia of craft beers, but they’re proud to be New Jersey’s first and only brewery offering a vast selection brewed with 100% gluten-free ingredients. It was also born of two friends, Chris and Brian, who loved both beer and designer sneakers, which is where the name “departed soles” comes from.
