New World Pilsner

Pilsner – Other 5.3%

We brewed New World Pilsner to be a perfect balance of light malt and grapefruit flavors with a refreshing citrus peel finish that can be enjoyed on any occasion. We kept the grain bill very simple but broke from traditional recipes by adding a small amount of malted wheat to aid with body and mouthfeel. We sourced Australian Ella hops for their unique citrus and floral characteristics to compliment the flavors and aromas of this beer. New World Pilsner finishes slightly more bitter than traditional pilsners, giving your palette a refreshing and delicious experience to remember.

Eye of the Storm (w/ Citra)

IPA – American 6.5%

When you enter the eye of a storm, you enter a calm and balanced place amidst a circle of darkness and destruction. Keeping with the name we wanted to craft an IPA which would bring balance to all beer lovers alike. Just enough malt to round out the bitterness and a perfect platform to showcase subtle nuances of hops pairings, with Ekuanot hops used throughout the brewing process and a 100% Citra dry hop.

Touchdown

Lager – Munich Dunkel 5.3%

Whether you’re at Oktoberfest or sitting in the stands of a fall football game, finding a delicious full bodied and drinkable beer is key. With notes of biscuit & dark bread crust to molasses & honey this beer is the perfect pairing for raking leaves, rich soups or sitting down and watching a game. This beer went through a traditional long lagering phase which smoothed out the finish while still leaving that distinctive lager yeast character

Lager – Munich Dunkel 5.3%

Red Skies At Night

Farmhouse Ale – Saison 6.5%

Red Skies At Night is a classic saison brewed with hibiscus, ginger and lemon peel. The addition of hibiscus flowers give this beer a bold floral nose and flavor while providing enough tannins to balance the body of this beer with a dry finish. Ginger and lemon peel additions during the boil take the place of bittering hops and give this beer an earthy and pithy backbone. Red Skies At Night truly lives up to its name as a delicious delight for all to enjoy!

Imperial Storm Cloud

IPA – New England 8.3%

Hot and hazy summer days bring dark clouds and strong storms just like our Imperial Storm Cloud. Once again, we used a large portion of flaked oats and wheat in the mash to provide a rich mouth feel. Subtle caramel malts were added to provide balance and sweetness to the massive dry hop additions. We selected a delicious blend of Idaho 7, Amarillo and Australian Ella hop to provide bold tropical and citrus forward flavors of Mango, Tangerine and Passion Fruit.

Summer Sunset

Red Ale – American Amber / Red 5.5%

Summertime sunsets are a perfect combination of colors and warmth which flawlessly blend together in a way that keeps us wishing that the moment could last forever. The same goes true for this this delicious new brew. Keeping with its namesake, we layered multiple crystal and caramel malts over a munich and pale malt base to give aromas and flavors ranging from biscuit and bready to subtle chocolate and toffee. On top of this awesome malt bill we used a hop profile that gives this beer a light lemon grass and pineapple character to brighten the finish. This beer is definitely an easy drinker which gives your palate an experience to remember.

Pier Pressure

Pale Ale – American 5.4%

Some say that the best summer days are spent on the water. We crafted a beer to for just that! Using a base of 2-row pale malt, we added the perfect amount of crystal, munich and wheat malts to create a deliciously refreshing and easy drinking ale. On top of these malts we added Warrior hops for bittering, then a blend of Cascade, Amarillo and Simcoe hops giving flavors and aromas of citrus fruit with hints of earth and pine. This brew is perfect for a relaxing shore day.

About Us

Brian Teel
Vice President & CFO

A powerful storm inspired the creation of Jersey Cyclone Brewing Company.

August 2011 after Hurricane Irene, Jan was pouring his time & energy into helping his family’s local shop[European Deli Manville,NJ] recover from devastating flooding. At that same time, Brian Teel was dedicated to studying for the CPA exam at his home in Rocky Hill, where flood waters engulfed his backyard. “If we can overcome this, we can persevere through anything” they said. The challenges they both struggled with in the aftermath of the historic storm inspired them to start homebrewing as a fun pastime & experimental hobby.

Using a small stovetop in Brian’s apartment, they began brewing 1 gallon batches of home brew recipes. The two long-time friends quickly found brewing to be a welcome creative outlet as they worked to develop different recipes & variations of their beer. As their friends & family increased their appreciation for hand-crafted brews, so did Jan & Brian’s dreams. Their home brewing system soon evolved into a 2.5 gallon electric brew system, which later grew to a custom-built 15 gallon (.5 barrel) electric brew system.

On June 25, 2015, Jan & Brian decided to make their dream a reality & started down the path to open their brewery.  Much like the aftermath following the storm that inspired their interest in homebrewing, the next four years were filled with detailed planning, back-breaking construction, some unexpected setbacks, & the continual excitement of knowing that their labor would eventually allow their vision to become a reality.

Jersey Cyclone Brewing Company officially opened its doors to the public in May 2019. Co-owners Jan & Brian look forward to sharing their brews with local craft beer enthusiasts for many years to come!
