Reclaiming Jersey Beer: Forgotten Boardwalk 1916 Shore Shiver (video)

Forgotten Boardwalk 1916 Shore Shiver IPA

In late 2012, beer laws were reformed in New Jersey that eased restrictions on beer production in the state and led the way for new breweries to open and begin a revival of the once beer Mecca. Not many know, that from the late 1800’s through the early 1970s New Jersey was the California of beer production. Big name breweries like Ballantine, Pabst, Kruger, Hansler, Rheingold, Budweiser and many more where once housed in our great state but as the national trend of consolidation took hold, most shuttered their doors and moved on.

Today with the easing of restrictions we have new breweries popping up all over the state and ones that hopefully will reclaim the Jersey name in beer. Forgotten Boardwalk is one of the newest breweries in our state and today I review their 1916 Shore Shiver IPA. Watch the video above and let me know what you think.
