Hunterdon-Exterior
Hunterdon distributors and River Horse Brewing are gearing up for a big blitz of Summer Blonde Ale.

IMG 8020At its Whitehouse Station warehouse Friday night, Hunterdon will load 15 trucks with nothing but River Horse’s big-selling warm weather seasonal. Come Saturday, those trucks will fan out to 425 accounts, delivering what will amount to 6,000 cases, 200 sixtels and 170 half kegs, says Hunterdon sales manager Jeff Rancan.

The big Summer Blonde push is an annual happening at Hunterdon; this year is its third, coming just a few days earlier than the usual start-of-April release. The first year saw roughly 4,000 cases total of Summer Blonde (4.5% ABV) get shipped.

“I love this day and it gets bigger and better every year,” says River Horse owner Chris Walsh. “It symbolizes that better weather is just around the corner and all the great stuff that comes with summer.  

“It also caps off the weeks of planning and coordinating with Hunterdon, so that we can get New Jersey's Summer beer on as many shelves and on as many taps as possible for its loyal followers to enjoy.”

Morristown beer fest, a pictoral

Big Brew 1

 A smoother trip this time for the folks who put on this year's beer festivals at the armory in Morristown. Their fest early in the year was troubled by long lines to get into the venue and for the restrooms. It made for some unhappy people, and it didn't reflect well on the promoters. However, the return engagement, The Big Brew Beer Festival, staged this past Saturday (Sept. 28) ran smoothly. If you saw some long lines, it was probably for food, and those lines moved rather fast. New Jersey breweries there included Beach Haus, Bolero Snort, Cricket Hill, Flying Fish, High Point, River Horse and Tuckahoe. These images (taken by Beer-Stained Letter) are from the events early session. Click above to launch the gallery.

has been doing some fine-tuning in its new home of Ewing.

Almost two months after officially leaving Lambertville, River Horse has bumped up its fermenter space by a total of 120 barrels, making some quick use of the relative abundance of building space Ewing has compared to the brewery's founding location.
