METUCHEN, NJ – A week after their official opening in Edison, Cypress Brewing Company beers were being served on tap at Hailey’s Harp & Pub in Metuchen.
In a tap takeover on Thursday evening, CBC brought in sixtels and half barrels of eight of their brews with the Hailey’s staff sporting Cypress Brewing Company t-shirts serving the local brew.
The eight CBC brews served were a:
- Northern English Nut Brown
- Irish Red
- West Coast IPA
- Double Chocolate Imperial Oatmeal Stout
- Rye Saison
The tap takeover was a mutual idea between owners of Cyrpess Brewing and Moshe Atzby manager Hailey’s which packed in over 100 friends, family and Hailey’s regulars trying the new brew.
“Hailey is your first official customer,” Jason Kijowski, co-owner of Cypress Brewing Company said. “We are overwhelmed by the number of people that came out tonight and it's been an incredible opportunity to work with fantastic Haileys staff and Moshe Atzby.
For the beer connoisseur, sampling the eight brews was made easy in two racks of four mini mugs each.
Local area resident, Jonathan Evans, sampled all eight and stated, “I enjoyed them all and they are good standards, but the stout was fantastic.”
According to the Cypress Brewing Company FaceBook page, “Cypress Brewing sold out of beer at our opening event at Haileys! I'd say that's a success. Thank you all!”
