902 Brewing Company has come a long way from what was once a modest beer brewing experiment between two Hoboken roommates at the beginning of this decade, and now, plans are officially in place to house the entire business under one roof at a large Jersey City facility.
The brewery, officially formed in 2012 by Colby Janisch, Tucker Littleton, Andrew Brown, and Don Vogt, is named for the Washington Street building where Janisch and Littleton dabbled in the aforementioned brewing trials. They’ve been working their hoppy magic out of New Jersey Beer Company’s North Bergen facility since 2016 and announced plans to merge with that company that should wrap up within the next year.
902 Brewing has long desired to open a tap room, and at one point, had toyed with putting a small one in Hoboken. But like many residents of the Mile Square City, they moved west for more space and have now found a spot to land in Jersey City’s Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood.M O R E
