What's On Tap

The following beers are available during our normal hours


Blue Jersey 

(5.0% ABV, German American Wheat)

For the crowds who haven’t yet acquired a taste for powerfully hopped, or complex craft beers, or for those that just want a refreshing  beverage, this American Wheat is extremely drinkable with a hint of blueberry.  The touch of fruit flavor balances with the softness of the wheat malt, accented with the subtle peppery spice of German noble hops.


Peach Bound 

(5.0% ABV, German American Wheat)

For the crowds who haven’t yet acquired a taste for powerfully hopped, or complex craft beers, or for those that just want a refreshing beverage, this American Wheat is extremely drinkable with a hint of peach. The touch of fruit flavor balances with the softness of the wheat malt, accented with the subtle peppery spice of German noble hops.


Spicy Peach Habanero 

(5.0% ABV, German American Wheat)

Our Peach Bound conditioned with fresh habanero peppers. The spice is subtle but builds as you continue to drink it!


Steel Pier Blonde

(4.5% ABV, Blonde Ale)  

An easy drinking and approachable malt-oriented American craft beer. Refreshing and delicious!


Hot Blonde

(4.5% ABV, Blonde Ale) 

Our delicious Steel Pier Blonde conditioned with fresh bell and habanero peppers. Fresh pepper flavor and aroma with a hint of spiciness that builds as you continue to drink it. 

Tapped every year on Cinco de Mayo! A festival favorite!


Cream of the Crop  

(5.2% ABV, Cream Ale)

A thirst quenching ‘lawnmower’ beer.  Cream of the Crop ale is a crisp, clean, dry beer, much like an American Standard Lager, but brewed at lower lager temperatures with ale yeast, giving it more malt presence and flavor than normally found in American lagers. 


Cook's Corner Coffee Cream Ale  

(5.2% ABV,  Cream Ale)  

Our Cream of the Crop infused with fresh Kenya AA coffee beans from Cook's Corner in Smithville Village, NJ and cinnamon.


 Cherry Amaretto Sour 

(5.0% ABV, Kettle Sour) 

Our American wheat kettle-soured. Black cherries, bitter almond, and dried apricots added in the secondary.


 Galloway Golden Ale 

(5.0% ABV, Blonde Ale) 

A gold colored blonde ale closely related to a traditional American lager.  Made in commemoration of our BEST of the PRESS Best Brewery Gold award for 2018.


Pop's Wit 

(4.7% ABV, Apfel Witbier)

As soft and delicate as a cloud on your palate.  Aromatic with a slight sweetness balanced by citrus orange fruitiness and freshly ground coriander. A splash of apple juice in the kettle provides a unique, extra crisp finish. 


Sunset Beach Saison 

(7.0% ABV, Saison)

  Saison, French for season, is a light and crisp pale ale often brewed in winter to be enjoyed through the summer.  They are fruity, and spicy with hints of banana and clove.


Leeds Point Wicked Porter 

(6.5% ABV, American Porter)  

Some dark beers are easy to drink. The rich caramel and toasty malt character, more chocolate than coffee, provides for a surprisingly drinkable, lightly carbonated, refreshing beer that allows the malt and fermentation character to shine.


You are the BRUT SQUAD

(7.0% ABV, Brut IPA)

An extremely dry, brut IPA with light tropical notes and a crisp finish. Citrusy and refreshing. It's also lowest in calories on our list. "Inconceivable!" 


Nor'Easter East Coast IPA  

(7.0% ABV, Hazy IPA)

  A New England style IPA that features a juicy tropical fruit hop aroma and flavor. This delicious IPA is heavily dry hopped to the point of being hazy, and features a full body, and smooth flavor. Perfect for enjoying on a lazy hazy beach day!

 

Pennsyltucky Rye 

(5.5% ABV, Rye Pale Ale) 

An American rye pale ale with a balance of clean hops and malted rye. Light and refreshing.


Nucky's Empirial IPA 

(9.0% ABV, Imperial IPA)  

Intensely hoppy for the trained palate of a true hop head.  Bigger in alcohol strength, hop bittering, and hop character than a standard India pale ale.  Full of citrus and pine notes, this beer is all about the hops.  To maintain its drinkability, it finishes dry with a relatively simple but supportive malt backbone.  



 

COMING SOON...

Amber Ales of Grain 

(5.5% ABV, Amber Ale)

An amber colored ale with biscuit and caramel sweetness balanced by American hops.


Absecon Bay IPA 

(5.0% ABV, Session IPA)

 A session IPA with a relaxed balance of classic west coast hops with a sturdy malt backbone smoothed out with British yeast character. Enjoy this floral, citrus, earthy, IPA while spending a full day on the back bay.


Old Ordinary Ale 

(3.0% ABV, English Bitter)

Old Ordinary is in style of the original English Pale Ale, an English Bitter.  Referred to as bitter, as it was the first beer style produced with a balance of malt and bittering hops.  Old Ordinary is meant to be enjoyed in a familiar neighborhood pub at the end of a long rainy day, or during a hot summer backyard BBQ. Not to be confused with an American Pale Ale, this English Ordinary Bitter is in amber in color with a biscuit malt character and slight residual sweetness, just balanced by the restrained use of earthy English hops.  


Seasonal Brews

 Rebel's Black IPA 

(6.8% ABV, Black IPA)  

Named for our most "loyal" patron with four paws, this beer is brewed with IPA-level hopping and a distinct toasty, dark malt character. A black IPA lacks the roastiness of a strong stout and is hoppier than a strong porter.



Don't Go Chasing Watermelons

Our American Wheat flavored with watermelon and basil.


Headless Hessian Pumpkin Ale 

  Amber colored ale with just the right amount of pumpkin flavor and spice! Like pumpkin pie in a glass!


Oktober Ale 

 Like Autumn in a glass! German altbier has a clean, smooth malt character, with touches of toast, biscuit, and caramel.


Cranberry Ale 

  Slightly sour cranberry flavor is balanced by a biscuit malt character and slight residual sweetness.


White Horse Stout

This dry stout, much like a popular Irish counterpart, is a lower alcohol beer, with a dry finish and light body that makes it easy to consume.  It is a great choice when you want to have a few flavorful beers with a balance of roastiness and coffee, without being overwhelmed by alcohol.


Alban Arthan Winter Warmer 

 ...a time of short days and long nights.  Holdfast this light until you find warmth.  Molasses and spices with Gingerbread aroma and alcohol warmth.


Two Wild and Crazy Gyles 

Amber in color. An old technique was used to make two beers from our Anniversary mash. Similar in taste to an English Ordinary Bitter, with a biscuit malt character and slight residual sweetness, just balanced by the restrained use of earthy English hops.


Brew's German Pilsner 

(5.5% ABV, lager)  

A crisp, clean, refreshing lager. Hopped with traditional German noble hops to create a floral aroma, and soft malt flavor. Inspired by the Stairs’ time living in Germany. Noch einmal, bitte!!!!




BOTTLED ANNIVERSARY ALES

(22oz Bombers)


Nucky's Honey (10.0% ABV, 2018)

Our intensely hoppy imperial IPA brewed with a sizable portion of fresh honey from Fruitwood Orchards in Monroeville, NJ resulting in a modern version of an ancient beverage called braggot.


Barley Wine, (12.5% ABV, 2019)

American interpretation of the richest and strongest of the English ales. With a striking balance of malt and alcohol sweetness, this baley wine will age gracefully an dis best enjoyed sipping by the fire on a cold winter night.


Belgian Quad, (12.0%, 2020)

A copper colored and complex, strong Belgian Ale with a delicious blend of malt richness, dark fruit, banana, and cloves. This Trappist style Belgian is rich, smooth, and dangerous
