The Alementary in Hackensack- Jersey’s New Microbrewery

The Alementary in Hackensack- Jersey’s New Microbrewery 600 555 Emilie

The Alementary Brewing Co. is the first microbrewery of Hackensack, and a very recent addition to the list of microbreweries across New Jersey. Alementary opened only about three months ago (their grand opening was April 16, 2016). It was started by Blake Crawford and Mike Roosevelt, who wanted a local brewery that Bergen County could claim as its own. Thus, you will see that Alementary embraces the culture and atmosphere of the Bergen County area which inspired it’s creation.

Interestingly enough, both Crawford and Roosevelt have scientific backgrounds, and only switched to the beer industry more recently. Roosevelt has a doctorate in molecular biology, and Crawford was previously a chemical engineer. Nowadays, they are excited to focus their attention on creating fresh, local beer for their community.

Even though only open for a few short months, Alementary has had many exciting events and new beers introduced to their tap list. Just one week ago, they added their first Double IPA called “Hops and Dreams.” Additionally, Alementary offers a wide variety of beers currently available in their tap room. This ranges from their “Let’s Begin” gose, to their “Bitter Steve” english bitter, to their “1st Session” session IPA.

If you’re looking to try some of their amazing brews, stop by Charlie Brown’s in Oradell on July 18th, 7-9 PM for Alementary’s Tap Takeover. All drafts will cost only $3! Proceeds will benefit Healing the Children New Jersey, a volunteer organization that provides medical services to children in need both internationally and domestically.

After checking out their amazing beers, make sure you pick up some Alementary merch. You can pick up a t-shirt for only $15, or grab yourself a hat or a hoodie!
