The Asbury Park Brewery, which opened in August, is quickly making its mark in the city and beyond.
“Asbury Park Brewery didn’t buy the space,” Plate [at right] said in a telephone interview. “The entity that bought the building is comprised of some of the same people involved in the brewery. We will continue to the lease the space.”
That entity is 810 Sewall LLC, named for the building’s address and is comprised of four members; some a part of the musician backed brewery, said Plate, a veteran area musician who has played in the bands like Sikamor Rooney, Low Flying Jets, and The Parlor Mob.
The purchase will allow the brewery to expand its facility space, making room for a canning facility, he said.
“Cans will be available in liquor stores this summer,” Plate said. “We will also be adding more tanks and are growing our distribution every day.”
And while Asbury Brewery has solidified a partnership with Shore Point Distributors, they will continue to self distribute in North Jersey, he said.
This past week the local brewery sealed a contract agreement with Prudential Center in Newark and will expand its availability along the boardwalk, including at the Stone Pony’s Summer Stage, Plate said.
