Tun Tavern Restaurant & Brewery is a brewpub in Atlantic City in Atlantic County, New Jersey.[2][3] The brewery opened to the public in 1998 and was named for the historical Tun Tavern, a colonial establishment located in Philadelphia from 1685–1781.[1][4] The brewery produced 550 barrels of beer in 2006.[1]

Beers and other products[edit]

Tun Tavern specializes in the production of English, Irish, German, and American-style beers.[1] Common beer styles made at the brewery include Berlin-style Weisse and hefeweizen, red ales, seasonal beers, weizenbocks, and west coast IPAs featuring hops grown locally in New Jersey.[5][6]

Tun Tavern has a restricted brewery license from the New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, which allows it to produce up to 10,000 barrels of beer per year, to sell on-premises, to wholesalers, and at festivals in the state, and to offer samples at off-premises charitable or civic events.[7][8] The brewery is a member of the Garden State Craft Brewers Guild.[9]
