KENILWORTH, NJ – October 2018 Two Ton Brewing opened their doors and welcomed the public to their new production facility in Kenilworth. Two Ton has 20 tap lines with draught beer that rotates throughout the year and three taproom spaces. Two Ton Brewing is a family operated business run by CFO Dr. Mario C. Barbiere the father, CEO Matt Barbiere, and Head Brewer Jim Barbiere. October 13, Two Ton Brewing held their 1-year anniversary party. There was live music in the afternoon, a food truck on premises, a corn hole tournament, and an array of tasteful beers for all patrons to enjoy.
Some Grackles, Michael Scotto, and The Serranos entertained the guests with their music and the corn hole tournament was a lively event. Ten teams competed and the winners were John and Annie Menafra who won a gift basket of merchandise. Matt was thrilled with the turnout. “Our anniversary party was a huge success. We want to thank the Borough of Kenilworth for all their support. We couldn’t be happier to be doing business here, it’s an amazing community and we look forward to many years to come.” Jim who brewed his first batch of beer in his college dorm said, “it has been tremendously rewarding to see this vision come to life. I’m humbled and thankful for the support of my family, without whom this would not have been possible. As a brewer I consider myself something of an artist, so its been exciting and gratifying to share these creations with the larger community.” Two Ton has collaborated with a half dozen breweries around the state and travelled extensively for festivals, tap takeovers and more. The Borough of Kenilworth recognized Two Ton’s 1-year anniversary by presenting a Mayoral Proclamation on October 9. Dr. Barbiere beamed, “I’m proud of my sons for making a dream come true.”
