Craft beer fans will soon have another local brewery to explore here at the Jersey Shore.

Ross Brewing is planning to open a brewery in the old firehouse on White St. in downtown Red Bank, right across from the municipal parking lot.

Founder and President John Ross Cocozza tells me they’ll be making ales and lagers utilizing locally grown ingredients, like Monmouth County-grown cranberries, blueberries, pumpkins, honey, raspberries, and more.

Cocozza says they truly are a local company. “We live locally…we love Red Bank, love our entire Two Rivers community, and we can’t wait to share our beer with all of you.”

They really do embrace their love of the Garden State, as evidenced by the names of their brews.

Their flagship beer is called Navesink IPA, and is made with eight kinds of hops and ruby red grapefruit. There’s a Shrewsbury lager, a Manasquan witbier, and the Passaic porter, which he says is “perhaps the world’s perfect dessert beer.”

In addition to making great suds, they’re committed to serving the community around them. “We aim to make a difference,” Cocozza said.”We’re super excited to be working locally and helping out worthy causes that are important to us as well.”

The brewery will offer tours and tastings, with all kinds of swag (and beer) available for purchase. He added that they’ll be featuring plenty of local art and music, too.

It’s great to see a business that’s truly invested in the community around it. I can’t wait to check this out!

Pending the necessary approvals and licenses from Red Bank, Ross Brewing hopes to be open by the end of this year, or possibly the first quarter of 2018.
