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.

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.

Storm Tactics

Stout – Irish Dry 4.7%

Stout – Milk / Sweet 8.0%

-Imperial Milk Stout Brewed with Cinnamon & Lactose, Conditioned on Cacao Nibs and Vanilla Beans-

This bold dessert stout is packed with all of the delicious flavors of your favorite fireside snack. Milk sugar and cinnamon were added to the boil alongside medium Belgian candy sugar which was then conditioned on pounds of cacao nibs and vanilla bean. The cinnamon and specialty malts in the mash give a cinnamon honey & biscuit flavor to represent the graham cracker, vanilla bean and milk sugar provide body and sweetness to represent the marshmallow, and loads of cacao nibs give deep layers of chocolate throughout the whole beer.

Porter – Imperial / Double 9.0%

Just like the October snowstorm that covered the area in deep snow, this big bold porter is layered with multiple dark and crystal malts with a moderate dose of lactose to round out the body. To finish off this bold porter, we added roasted coffee and pounds of vanilla beans to create a Snowtober Storm to be remembered!

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.

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.

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%

Norwegian Squall

IPA – American 5.5%

This beer is a further experiment of the boundaries we can push with our Norwegian Yeast strain. We’ve used this yeast for clean fruited beers and are now pushing it into hoppyier beers to see how it behaves. With a simple grist of base malt, flaked oats and caramalt fermented at over 90F and dry hopped twice with loads of some of our favors hop! El Dorado, Idaho 7 & Vic Sercret pack a huge nose of Pineapple, Peach, Mango and Vanilla and finished smooth and light at 5.5%.

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!
