Visiting The Alementary
Where can I park?
One of the most frequently asked questions we get! Our parking map is below. You can park in any of the areas outlined in RED. Please note that we are in an active industrial area, so parking in front of any gates (locked or not) is prohibited. Burlews Court (around the corner) is the best kept secret. Always plenty of parking along there, as well as on Johnson Avenue. As always, we appreciate your parking legally according to these guidelines and helping us being respectful to our neighbors.
Do you have food?
We are in an awesome town, so we do frequently have food trucks in the immediate area. You are also encouraged to bring food with you, or to order in from any one of our area’s fine food establishments–especially if you’re planning on hanging out with us for a few hours. Production breweries like us aren’t allowed to sell food directly and we know that’s a bummer. That’s why we encourage our patrons to enjoy our beer responsibly and have a bite to eat by other means.
Are you dog and/or kid friendly?
Yes! We have a brewery dog (Marjie) who is awesome with kids and other dogs. As long as your kids and dogs are equally cool with it, you’re welcome to bring them when you visit. We’ve gotten very good at the leash dance. Please call ahead if you need advice on finding a less busy time if that makes you more comfortable.
Do you take credit cards?
Yes! Cash, credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Wallet. If it represents US currency and you can pay with it, we’ll take it.
Do you give an NJCB discount?
We do! We’re happy to provide 10% off draft, growler fills and merchandise to NJCB card holders. Packaged goods such as cans and bottles are not included.
Can I bring a group by and can I get a reservation or will you hold a table?
You are more than welcome to bring a group of any size. If your group size is greater than 8, our Taproom Manager Chelsea appreciates a call in advance. We do not take reservations and we can’t hold a table–everything is first-come-first-served. If you call ahead we are happy to provide advice about the best times to arrive to give you the best shot at getting what you’re looking for.
Can I work for you even for free?
The Alementary is a small, close-knit team and we seldom have any vacancies–even for interns or people willing to work for free. When we do have openings, though, we’ll make a big deal of it so that we can find the right people. If there’s no listing here on the website, then we don’t have any positions available.
