I enjoy River Horse, some Flying Fish (currently tearing up a sixer of their Raging Bitch), and Triumph is good (both Princeton and New Hope). I've been to the Cellar Lounge and Microbrew in Hamilton but wasn't all that impressed with their own beers.

I'll agree that Dogfish Head in DE is killer as well.

The River horse brewery in Lambertville is a neat place to visit. You can walk through a alot of the brewery, but mostly you can't see much but storage areas and boxes. However, for a buck, you get a generous taste of several of the beers they have on tap. Also, you can buy their swag there and hang out. Every time I've gone, there are people hanging out there talking about beer. Its fun!

The triumph brewery in Princeton (and the one in New Hope PA) are nice upscale places. They sometimes have a rauchbier that is interesting. They could do more with their menu selection, but its a nice place to meet well dressed friends.

If passed the new law would establish farm brewery and winery-brewery beverage licenses and permit farm wineries to produce hard cider.

In short a farm-brewery would have to grow at least one of the ingredients used in making its beer and would allow for sampling and selling of the beer for consumption off premises. Basically the way wineries operate.

The passage of this bill will promote agri-tourism throughout the state and open up new areas of enterprise for local farmers, not to mention new, regionalized, craft brewing movements.

Please e-mail your local legislative representatives and ask that they support this proposed ammendement.

Thanks
This looks like a great way to support local agriculture and for locavore's to get a good beverage!

New Hope has the Rauch Bier on tap now, and I have heard from 3 friends this week that it's really good. I'm trying to get over there to sample it, but working 2nd shift kills that chance most of the time.

I was at the Cricket Hill open house last friday with my wife. Great time. Tried the four beers they were serving - the Jersey Summer was my favorite. We had to leave before the owner gave his speech, so I plan to go back when I'm not pressed to leave.
Thats the name they come up with!?? Original...but I'd be interested to give it a try...I'll be on the look out.

Oops, I made a mistake there, remove the "60 Minute" part of the name. That's from the Dogfish IPA, not the Flying Fish. [both are great]
