COLD SPRING BREWERY – New Jersey’s First Non-Profit Brewery

In early 2014, the HCSV Foundation Board of Trustees voted unanimously to pursue the development of a small brewery on the Village grounds with the name Cold Spring Brewery. To this end, and in keeping with the mission of the Historic Cold Spring Village, an 1804 three bay English-style Cape May County barn from Upper Township was purchased. Stillwell and Elizabeth Corson, a familiar name in the County, built the classic building. Permission to restore and reconstruct the barn, board by board, and place it on Village property was received from both the Lower Township and County of Cape May Zoning Boards along with approvals to utilize the barn in connection with the proposed brewery. Although the barn/brewery is located outside the Village fencing, it remains part and parcel of the 30 acres that are located between Seashore Road and Route 9 in Cold Spring, containing 27 restored historic structures.

Funding for the project was secured through HCSV Foundation’s fundraising events, donations, memberships, retail sales, corporate sponsorship for programs, and gate revenue. Its purpose is to stabilize Historic Cold Spring Village museum for future generations to enjoy. The Village’s mission is historic preservation, history education, and heritage tourism.

 Hildreth German Wheat

Hefeweizen 6.0% ABV  18 IBU

True to character, we use a German Yeast with no filtration, which adds to the cloudiness. Hints of banana, cloves and citrus.

Cold Spring Red
Irish Red Ale  6.8% ABV  40 IBU

Our best selling beer from day 1, with a rich burnt sienna color, a creamy beige head, and good lace

Dennisville Inn Porter
Porter  5.8% ABV  5 IBU

A mainstay in the brewery since day one, our porter has rich coffee flavors with hints of chocolate on the back notes.

Ishmael Pale Ale
Pale Ale  7.5% ABV  68 IBU

As close to an IPA as you can get without being a true IPA.

Extra hops are added to an already tasty pale ale giving it a nice bitter, but not overwhelming taste, with hints of grapefruit.

Not Ye Grandpappy’s Sarsaparilla
Special  3.8% ABV

Our sarsaparilla soda that we brew here, mixed with one of our tasty brews. A winner with our non-beer lovers!

 Finley Forge IPA
New England IPA  7.0% ABV  130 IBU

CSB’s first true IPA. Not overly aggressive, but certainly packs a punch.
A must-try for any hop head. Our secret use of hop variety adds just the right mix of floral bitterness and malty sweetness.

Levi’s Lager – Temporarily out
Light Lager  5.25% ABV  26 IBU

Comparable to a domestic light beer, with low hops and low craft beer flavor.

 Hand American Lager – Temporarily out
American Pale Lager  7.4% ABV  18.5 IBU

Heavier in body than most lagers, this packs both malty sweetness and smoothness.
A very easy drinking beer with all American sourced ingredients.

Vanilla Milk Stout
Milk Stout  6.3% ABV  5 IBU

Originally created as a one-time special holiday brew, it was so well-liked and requested that we just had to keep it on! Creamy, but not heavy-bodied with strong notes of vanilla and chocolate and hints of coffee.

 Cold Spring Brewery Sarsaparilla and bottled water available

*Beer Prices include NJ Sales Tax

Limited edition brews are available, please visit often, we look forward to seeing you!
