Taphouse 15  Wharton, New Jersey

Voted "One of the Best Taprooms in New Jersey 2016" in New Jersey Monthly magazine, this take-it-easy gastropub lives up to its name. Offerings include an impressive selection of 24 rotating beers on tap and another 50 in bottles.  (They’re also active on the Untappd app, for serious beer connoisseurs.) Don’t forget to order their famous wood-fired pizza!  Call 862-437-1300 for more information.


Krogh’s  Sparta, New Jersey

Any place with a 5-course beer dinner knows what it’s doing when it comes to what’s on tap!  Krogh’s established the first brew pub in Sussex county in 1998 and now brews six handcrafts, rotating seasonals and various cask-conditioned ales.  Regulars recommend ordering up their Nachos el Grande or Fresh Garlic Pesto Wings to enjoy with your beverage, but you’re not limited to appetizers;  There’s a full menu of great food from which to choose. Call 973-729-8428 for more information.


Morris Tap & Grill  Randolph,  New Jersey

Regulars call this craft beer-centric bar the “perfect marriage of brew and food”.  The eclectic beer list includes 25 brews on tap and around 70 in bottles, including oddballs like Slumbrew Creep and Ithaca Excelsior.  While the standard pub fare rates high, go a little crazy and order from the chef’s street food menu--there’s Korean pork belly buns, Mexican empanadas and even Indian aloo tikki!  Call 973-891-1776 for more information.


NJ Bar & Grill  Mine Hill Township, New Jersey

Go for the amazing selection of beer, stay for the big, affordable burgers at this great neighborhood joint!  Regulars give high points for the wonderful service and bar staff, and recommend hitting up Wednesday’s when it’s Mexican Night for cuisine and cocktails.  To add to the hump day fun, singles or teams strive to win at trivia.  Call 973-989-1999 for more info.


High Point Brewing Company   Butler, New Jersey

As the first exclusive wheat beer brewery in America, High Point knows its way around a cask!  Their award-winning homebrewer trained in Germany and creates Ramstein beers using Bavarian-imported ingredients. Since beer’s their sole focus, grab grub elsewhere before you head here.  Then settle in, order up a growler and enjoy!  Call 973-838-7400 for more information.


Boonton Station  Boonton, New Jersey

Sip your suds on the new outdoor patio at this former 1904 train station turned tavern. Regulars recommend the steak dinner to pair with one of the craft brews from their vast menu, and say the combo’s so good, you won’t even be bothered when the occasional train rolls past!  Call 973-917-4500 for more information.


There you have it: the best beer spots in Northern New Jersey. Team Nest Builder recommends you round up your Morris and Sussex County buddies this weekend and head out for a (responsibly-enjoyed) cheerful, "beer-ful" celebration!
