River Horse Brewing tasting room to open Oct. 19th

The wait is over …

River Horse Brewing will open the tasting room in its new Ewing brewery on Oct. 19th.

Owners Chris Walsh and Glenn Bernabeo on Thursday (Oct. 10) cut a ceremonial ribbon to celebrate the forthcoming tour taproom opening.

River Horse Ribbon Cutting2They also gave a small gathering of guests and media a tour of the 2 Graphics Drive location the company has called home since this past summer.

The maker of Hop-A-Lot-Amus Double IPA, Belgian Freeze and Tripel Horse long ago outgrew its original home in Lambertville (Hunterdon County), along the Delaware Canal.

The move to Ewing (Mercer County) began last January and wrapped in in July. But getting the tasting room in hand lagged behind, falling behind the priorities of bringing new fermenter tanks online and getting the brewery up to speed in the new location.

During Thursday's tour, Chris reiterated that the larger brewery space means new beers can be brought online (for instance, a pilsner and a Berliner weiss). It also means the return of River Horse's Lager, knocked out of the production rotation because of capacity issues in Lambertville.

Glenn also pointed out the brewery's bottling line has been overhauled. Low ceilings at the Lambertville location made the overhaul impossible there.

Meanwhile, a coffee version of River Horse's oatmeal milk stout that came out last winter is coming back in early 2014 as a Brewer's Reserve beer.

A collaborative effort with Rojo's coffee roasters in Lambertville, the stout proved popular with Garden State craft beer drinkers. The beer was made by conditioning it on whole coffee beans, instead of infusing cold press coffee into the beer.
