Saint Benjamin Brewing Company

St. Ben's St. Benjamin's

Kensington, Philadelphia: Coming off an extraordinary year that's won them attention -- and visits -- from some of the top names in craft brewing, the team behind St. Ben's has opened its long-awaited taproom and kitchen. Open every day but Monday, the taproom serves the brewery's suds, plus both large and small plates -- everything from vegan chili to a full-sized Jamaican jerk chicken.

Devil's Creek Brewery

Collingswood, NJ: They said it would never happen but finally even the mayor relented. After more than a century as a dry town, Collingswood now houses a craft brewery in The Lumberyard complex on Haddon Avenue. Sitting astride the shops and BYOB's of downtown, Devil's Creek will grow to pour stouts, wheats, IPA's, holiday-themed beers, sours, barrel-aged ales and root beers from 12 taps.

Tonewood Brewing

Tonewood Brewing Opens Tomorrow in Camden County

Oaklyn, NJ: Coming off a stint as a brewer in ColoradoTonewood co-owner/brewer Eli Facchinei focuses on traditional styles at his 15-barrel brewhouse. He'll soon devote much attention to a barrel-aging program, as well. Though the taproom is already beautifully outfitted, the brewery team envisions adding an outdoor beer garden to the offerings.

Hidden Sands Brewing

Hidden Sands Hidden Sands

Egg Harbor Township, NJ: Coming this year: Hidden Sands Brewing. The EHT brewery gets its name from the source of its water -- the "800 Sands" aquifer believed to be 30,000 years old. Working on a highly sophisticated, 20-barrel brewhouse, brewers will produce a pilsner and a light pilsner, another lager, a seasonally-changing wheat beer, and IPA and a pale ale.
