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.  Parking in front of our immediate neighbor, Tri-Tech Construction at 62 Voorhis, 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?

1.) For kids, yes we are kid friendly, but we are also a working production brewery, so there are many non-kid-safe elements to the experience visiting us.  Please be mindful 🙂 

2.). We *were* dog friendly but now we are *not* dog friendly.  As the story goes, in Health Department Land, beer is food, thus dogs are not allowed.  In NJ Alcoholic Beverage Control land, we are prohibited from selling food or even coordinating with food providers.  Beer is food, which we can’t sell, but you can come here to buy beer.  Yeah we don’t get it either.  Call your state legislators and ask them to support S2753/A4264, which would straighten out this mess

 

 

 

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.
Retail/Sales
What do you have in cans?
We’re constantly turning over what we have canned so it changes frequently. The best way to find out what we have available is to call us, visit the taproom, or check our tap list and look for can prices. Additionally you can see where we’ve shipped beer in the last 30 days at our Beer Locator
Do you fill Corny Kegs?
Sorry! We do not!
Can I buy a keg from you?
We occasionally have sixtels available for consumer retail. The selection is limited and varies based on our brew schedule. Please call to know what we have on hand.
If you are a liquor store, bar/restaurant, beer purveyor looking to carry The Alementary please call us and we can put you in touch with our sales representative or email sales@alementary.com
Do you sell gift cards?
Yes! We have gift cards available in the tasting room, and you can also purchase and send electronic gift cards very easily at this link (opens in a new tab).
Employment
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.
