Join us Friday, March 26th from 7-9pm at Third State Brewing (352 High St, Burlington, NJ 08016) for our fourth stop at the ALT 104.5 Brewery Tour!
We've brewed up the ALTernate State - a collaboration between Third State and ALT 104.5! An American blonde ale brewed with German malts, noble hops and mango. A smooth, easy drinking beer at 24 IBUs.
About the Brewery:
Third State opened in June of 2015 by partners Billy Pozniak, Jay Mahoney and John O'Brien. We are a 7 bbl brewery, offering a wide range of styles. We are named for New Jersey, the 3rd state to ratify the Constitution of the United States. New Jersey was known as the Crossroads of the Revolution, giving us our motto "Crossroads of a Brewing Revolution".
