LITTLE FERRY, N.J. – Bottoms up, Little Ferry and Ridgefield Park.

Little Ferry's Brix City Brewing and Ridgefield Park’s Bolero Snort Brewery were recently named to New Jersey Monthly Magazine's list of top 16 craft breweries.

BRIX CITY

Pete Reuther's idea to open Brix City began to brew in 2010, upon returning from a four-year deployment in the U.S. Army. He joined forces with his now-business partner, Joe Delcalzo, who was studying accounting at the time.

The duo opened up shop last June, and has since brewed more than two dozen beers — mainly drafts in local bars and restaurants.

“We were just brewing beer in his backyard to have fun, you know, getting hammered,” Delcazo said. “Fast forward six years, we actually got it up and running.”

Brix City Brewing is starting a barrel aged program and is looking into canning its own beers in the upcoming months.

“We’re just cranking away new and different beers and styles," Delcazo said. "We’re going to keep going on like that."

BOLERO

The New Jersey craft brewery scene has a sense of camaraderie, Bolero co-founder Bob Olson said. He and his business partner, Andrew Maiorana, have produced close to 30 types of beers since they opened up shop three years ago.

“We have something very special in the New Jersey craft beer scene,” said Olson, who began brewing in his own home.

“It’s a very, very addicting hobby when you have that creative outlet and the end result is drinking a delicious beer you made yourself," he said. "Well, hopefully delicious."
