A fond farewell to BOAKS beer

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that New Jersey-based BOAKS beer will be closing up their operations for good by the summer.

The pretzel necklace has jerky on it!
There aren't many details as to why this happened, but we are deeply saddened to hear this news. We'd met Brian on several occasions at various beer events and always really appreciated his enthusiasm about his beer. Brian also introduced me to the beauty that is the PRETZEL AND JERKY necklace! The man is pure genius. 

BOAKS beer always knew how to rock a beer festival. Their times releases always ensured they had the longest line every single time. They've never been afraid to be adventurous with creations like Flamethrower, a Belgian Brown Ale with notes of spice and chocolate. They have gotten us VERY drunk on more than one occasion with their Monster Mash, an intensely flavored Russian Imperial Stout with roasty, fruity, chocolatey notes that too an almost too perfect job at masking the 10% alcohol content. They introduced us to Wooden Beanie - Two Blind Monks beer aged in Jack Daniels barrels with Madagascar vanilla beans - which is still one of my favorite beers ever - even Sue (who we all know hates beer) LOVES it!

There is some good news, though. You will still have a few chances to sample their delicious brews before they close up shop. Stop by and see them, and be sure to wish them well.
