BOAKS Lounge Newsletter

Right Now

Saturday from 1-2 Brian Boak will be on “What’s On Tap” live in southern NJ on 1240 AM WSNJ and at snjtoday.com. The show goes On Demand on the SNJ Today website later the same day. Audio of the show airs on local Comcast channel 22. Hosted by Gary Monterosso and Tara Nurin. We will be joined on the phone with Kevin Trayner (Beer Writer) and Nicole Gaffney (Food Network) during the hour.


Wooden Beanie was kegged today. Being a small batch there are limited kegs and no bottles yet. Have your best craft bar talk to their distributor to see if they can get one of the 5 kegs available in their area. We hope to bottle some the next time we make it in the Fall.

What we have been doing:

Beer festivals have started. The International Great Beer Festival at the Meadowlands Expo Center was a big hit. We brought Monster Mash, Wooden Beanie, Flamethrower, Abbey Brown and Double BW. We left with very little beer. It is only February and we are already lined up for 10 events. By the end of the year I am sure that number will grow.
