Wet Ticket
1435 Main St.
Rahway, NJ 07065

Today’s brewery is Wet Ticket in Rahway NJ. “Wet Ticket” refers to the individuals who ran for office during the 1930’s with the intent to repeal Prohibition.

img_0378This brewery is a short walk from the NJT Rahway stop. As noted before, breweries in New Jersey are not allowed to sell people food, unlike Departed Soles, Wet Ticket doesn’t have a restaurant right next to it so I had to order from Grub Hub. After a few mix-ups ‘dear GrubHub, I am not in Jersey City!’ I was able to get some take out – which was rather bad. The tap water also tasted bad. Neither of these statements should be taken as a knock on the brewery or the beer, the brewery is roomy, clean, and well lit with a welcoming ambiance, staff was attentive and knowledgeable and the beer was tasty (they must filter their water). They are not dog friendly, but are family oriented, as in the crowd is older and generally well behaved. I had to take a tour before I could be served, and when I got my growler filled, they taped around the cap with what looked like yellow electrical tape. The tour is New Jersey law, I didn’t ask if the tape was NJ law or their policy.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
