The site is advantageously located less than one mile from Route 24 and approximately two miles from Interstate 78.

“In addition to necessary physical features, such as ample floor space, high ceilings and a loading/unloading area, our client wanted to locate in a spot where it could draw visitors,” Ryan said.

“This is one of Morris County’s first micro-breweries and Chatham and its neighboring towns of Madison, Summit, New Providence, Short Hills and Millburn all present demographic profiles that are ideal for an artisanal brewery, and we presented this location as one that will enable Twin Elephant Brewing Company to serve the nearby population.”

In addition, Ryan said, “the tap room will be open to the public for tours and tastings by appointment.”.

The ownership team of Scott McLuskey, Cynthia Derama and Tim Besecker anticipate a fall 2015 Grand Opening.
