First Microbrewery in Hackensack

Bruce Rosenberg secured approval for the first microbrewery in the City of Hackensack and only the second in Bergen County. The addition of Alementary Brewery is seen as part of the city’s significant efforts toward redevelopment. Says Rosenberg, “What the City and planning board made clear during the approvals process was that they want to encourage the types of entrepreneurial business and adaptive reuse of existing buildings being pursued by Alementary Brewery.” The owners plan to open by Fall 2016 and offer a dozen beers, half for sale off-site at local bars and restaurants and the other six available only at the brewery.
