A brewery is coming to Middletown but it isn't exactly a name that you have never heard of before.

The name to look out for is Ross Brewing who first opened their doors in 2018 in Red Bank.

However, Red Bank is already home to three other craft breweries and other brew pubs so the competition is proving to be very steep.

So it only makes sense to relocate to a dryer area that is in need of some freshly brewed beer.

Ross Brewing will be relocating to the Port Monmouth section of Middletown and are aiming to open in the Spring of 2021. The address will be 909 Main Street.


This will make Ross Brewing the first brewery in the state where you can dock and dine.

In addition, Ross Brewing has had to prepare to expand their outdoor tasting area because of the COVID-19 pandemic. So now the plan is to have 20 outdoor tables as opposed to 4 -- but I am totally on board with this adjustment.

There will be a two-floor tasting room with views of the New York City skyline -- THAT is how you should be tasting local brews.

And yes, owner John Ross Cocozza still plans to serve his local-inspired beers to customers. Brews include Navesink IPA, Shrewsbury Lager, Passaic Porter, Manasquan Wit and Raritan Red RyePA.

“The key for us is we’re never going to ever put out a beer just because it happens to be the popular style," Cocozza said. "It has to be a beer that we enjoy ourselves. But if it’s a beer that we enjoy that also happens to be a popular style, that can be a win for everybody.”

We look forward to seeing what you can do once you reach the Middletown area.
