(Cherry Hill, NJ) - Forgotten Boardwalk Brewing Company is proud to announce the grand opening of its tap room and brewery in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Founded by Jamie Queli, the location features a whimsical setting complete with skeeball machines, fun house mirrors, a boardwalk spin wheel and a 30 barrel brewing system. The tap room has eight tap handles which will have four Forgotten Boardwalk mainstay beers, plus four brewers’ choice beers, all of which are produced on premises.
“We’ve been working on this project for a long time and we are finally ready to unveil our brewery and begin releasing beers to bars, restaurants, and liquor stores starting this October,” says owner, Jamie Queli. “If you want to take a tour of our brewery and want to learn more about the brewing process, you can do that. If you want to relax with a cold and bold flavored beer you can also do that. You can even challenge our head brewer, David Bronstein, to a game of skeeball – it’s what Forgotten Boardwalk is all about.”
Head brewer, David Bronstein, joined the Forgotten Boardwalk team from Sly Fox Brewing Company in April. David was with Sly Fox for eight years as their lead brewer before taking the reigns as Head Brewer with Forgotten Boardwalk. Owner, Jamie Queli is thrilled to have him on her team: “David is an amazingly, talented, brewer. He strives for consistency, quality, and great flavor in every beer he makes. I have given him full creative control in the brew house and he’s running full steam ahead.”
Visitors may also purchase Forgotten Boardwalk’s two flagship beers in cans, to go. The two flagship beers are “1916 Shore Shiver,” an india pale ale, and “What the Butler Saw,” an undressed wit beer. Forgotten Boardwalk embraces history and folklore into every beer it produces. The stories are, as Jamie Queli says it, “…pretty true. I like to have some mild artistic freedom in the story, but they are all based on real history that has happened at some point in time, all across the coastline.”
“1916 Shore Shiver” is based on the man-eating shark that terrorized the New Jersey shore. Forgotten Boardwalk’s tall tale states: “In the summer of 1916, a shark haunted the New Jersey coastline killing four & injuring seven. While there is much debate over what shark was responsible, there is no question that the attacks found their way into pop books & films depicting one great white shark who made the shore shiver.”
“What The Butler Saw” is based on a cheap thrill at the boardwalk: “Tucked away in the dark confines of the boardwalk during the turn of the century were mutoscopes. Inside one of these gems was a silent slideshow featuring a voyeuristic butler looking through a keyhole. The film, What the Butler Saw, let you privately take a peep while standing in plain view.”
To celebrate, the tap room will be hosting a Grand Opening on October 11th, 2014 from 12 noon and lasting until 8pm. The tap room will be open and the brewery will be available for tours. There will be food available for those that need something in their belly provided by local food truck vendors. Visitors can try any of their eight various beers on draft and can purchase six packs to go.
