Rinn Duin Brewing celebrated its first anniversary (see video here) with a limited release, 365 Blackthorn, an 8.1% ABV Irish red spiked with some Belgian candi sugar, making it the Toms River brewery’s biggest beer. But the brewery has also added entering the Philadelphia market and a small part of New York City to the 2015 to-do list.
With traditional English and Irish ales as its signature styles, Rinn Duin opened its doors at the start of 2014. Its 25-barrel brewhouse made it the largest of a half dozen breweries in that first wave of openings after the law change in the fall of 2012. In the audio clip, owner Chip Town talks about the first year and what to look for from Rinn Duin this year.
