The Alementary Announces Their Closure

The Alementary Announces Their Closure

The Alementary Set to Close

This one hurts. They were an absolute favorite since we first got to visit. Basically being our first date (Amy and myself). We had even saved a bottle of their Figgy Pudding to be the push present for Amy when Scarlet was born. We came back then soon after with Scarlet, and got to watch the Bengals beat the Bills in the playoffs there.

So needless to say, despite being a nearly three hour drive – they were a favorite brewery for us that holds a lot of dear memories for us here at The Beer Thrillers.

So we are very deeply saddened to hear of their upcoming closure.

In Their Own Words

Their announcement says everything very succinctly, so I will post their Facebook announcement here:

Dearest Friends!

All experiments must come to an end. Otherwise there are no results, right? Over the weekend we’ve had to make the very difficult decision to close our operations. Our taproom will remain open as we manage our way through this process. See below for more info!

What happened?

It’s a long story best told over a beer, but here’s the TL;DR: we had an agreement with a buyer for our contract business and that deal fell through. That, plus continued softness in the distro market, a not great 4q2023, and downward regional industry trends has left us in an irreconcilable situation. Our biggest error was one of timing, and trusting.

We are proud of what we’ve done. This is not undertaken lightly. We’re proud of the space you’ve all helped us to create. We never expected to gain family, but here we are. And we’ll stand behind every drop of beer we made. Except for Project 18. That was just a nightmare.

The taproom will remain open the usual hours while we work through all this! To celebrate our 8-year run we are having a Pay The Lawyers special: $5 pints, $3 shorts, $25 lager and Random cases, $35 everything else. All bottles $10 so you can get your holiday shopping done real real early.

The Moral of the Story

No business lasts forever, and you just gotta be okay with that. We’re sad, but it’s not a weepy sad. Continue supporting your local breweries, and not just the hypey ones everybody thinks you have to like. Find unique spaces doing unique things and support them. As for us? We’ll see you on the flip side.

The Alementary is at The Alementary – Facebook Post

As you can see from the comments and response to their announcement, the brewery will be nearly missed by the Hackensack, and the greater New Jersey brewing community.


We wish the best to all involved and all of their future endeavors. We sincerely wish nothing but the absolute best for all involved, this was a piece of the community that will be sorely missed.

Thank you for all the memories!

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
