When you think of summertime, one typically thinks about spending days at South Jersey Beaches and nights on the Boardwalks.  You think about the seasonal restaurants that are on your must-visit list every year.

But one other staple of the summer season for many people is the drinks they identify with this time of year.  I am not talking about Lemonade stands for kids and the adults who grew up watching "Fast and Furious" movies drinking Corona Beer in a bottle.

Over the last decade, New Jersey has seen incredible growth to the state's Craft Brewing Industry.  Everywhere you travel throughout The Garden State, you will find quality craft breweries making some of the most unique brews you will find anywhere.

Yet some of the best Craft Breweries in all of the state can be found in South Jersey.  In Cape May County alone there are 10 Craft Producers of Brews and the city of Hammonton has three within the city limits.

If you enjoy Craft Beers, you already know there is nothing more refreshing than a Craft Brew to drink on a hot summer afternoon on your deck or a Craft Beer to drink when the sun goes down at your Shore House Party.
