KENILWORTH, NJ – Friday, November 29, there was a large turnout of patrons and members from the community who came to Track Friday at Two Ton Brewing to raise money for the AJ DeVito Memorial Fund. AJ was a proud volunteer for the Kenilworth Fire Department who passed away suddenly this last summer. He made a huge impact on the Kenilworth community and was loved by all. "A heart of gold and always a smile. A person that could make your worst day the best day, or your saddest day one of your happiest days." This is what friends and community members have said to describe AJ.

The Kenilworth Fire Department held a dedication ceremony Tuesday, November 12, to introduce a new apparatus, Fire Engine 63 in DeVito’s honor and at Two Ton the brewers came out with a new IPA named Red Engine #63. At 2:00 p.m. the Cranberry IPA was tapped for all to enjoy. All proceeds from the sale of T-Shirts and beer flights went to benefit the memorial fund.

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. “Here at Two Ton, we have a tremendous amount of respect for all police, fire, military, and first responders” Matt stated. “We are proud to be part of such a tight-knit community. It was great to be able to come together, raise money, and give back. We are hoping to make this a new annual tradition and we’re thankful for everyone who came to support and donated.”
