A Quarter Off Kölsch

Kölsch 5.0%

Sometimes great things in life are just a quarter off!! We’ve taken all the ingredients that make up a classic Kolsch and tossed ‘em into the Cyclone! We used traditional Kolsch yeast, replaced the classic German Pilsner Malt with an American 2-Row malt for slightly more body, and added a balanced dose of Jarrylo and Huell Melon hops for a refreshing light hop profile. It’s a crisp, easy drinking beer that is perfect for every beer lover.

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.

Storm Surge

Porter – Baltic 7.3%

The depth of these rich and roasty flavors will overtake you much like the inevitable pressure of raising sea water of the largest storms. With ample amounts of dark caramel and chocolate malts fermented with a clean lager yeast with beer starts rich and clean but ends with huge roast notes of dark toffee and coffee.

Porter – Baltic 7.3%

Franklin Double

IPA – Imperial / Double 7.4%

We’ve brewed a beer just as big and bold as the local community here in Franklin! This Double IPA packs huge bitterness, a big malt backbone and plenty of hop aroma to go around. Using a massive amount of warrior hops in the beginning of the boil for bittering, then layering Simcoe, Azzaca and Amarillo hops throughout the late additions and dry hop make for a bold full bodied, yet approachable DIPA.

IPA – Imperial / Double 7.4%

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.

Pale Ale – American 5.4%

Storm Damage

IPA – Imperial / Double 8.0%

With notes of pine, grapefruit, mango and hint of white peppercorn, this Double India Pale Ale is dripping with hop goodness. We used one of our favorite hop blends, Simcoe & Amarillo, in the whirlpool and dry hop additions on top of a base of Pale and Crystal Malts. This beer is everything you can ask for…Bright hop aromas, big hop flavors and a hoppy bitterness which give you a perflectly clean finish and keep you coming back for more!

IPA – Imperial / Double 8.0%

Pass the Sweet Potatoes

Pumpkin / Yam Beer 6.0%

Whats more reminiscent of the fall holidays then grilled or smoked and spiced starch vegetables? We took a rich malty base beer recipe and spiced it up with the addition of Cherry Wood Smoked Malt and Sweet Potato along with a healthy addition of Saigon Cinnamon in the boil.

Pumpkin / Yam Beer 6.0%

Clear Skies

A Classic Pilsner Style beer that is the essence of what a good lager should be. Super drinkable beer made for a clear bright day or dreaming of one.

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.

IPA – New England 8.3%

Flood

Stout – Imperial / Double 10.0%

This beer’s name says it all! Just like the historic flood that gave birth to the dream of Jersey Cyclone Brewing, this beer floods your taste buds with delicious dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavors. We used layer upon layer of dark and crystal malts to give this brew a balanced complexity to perfectly offset its impressive 10% ABV.

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!
