Frequently Asked Questions
What the heck is Oakflower Brewing Company?
Oakflower Brewing Company is the culmination of the work of four beer-loving friends from north-central NJ who desperately wanted to create a warm, inviting, inclusive taproom for the neighboring communities.
What sort of beer can I expect to find?
We focus on lower-ABV, lighter beer styles. Saison (dry, effervescent Belgian farmhouse beer) is one of our main loves, so expect to see plenty of that, along with hoppier styles, and a good bunch of lager-type beers as well. We'll release the occasional high-ABV options (BA Barleywine, anyone??), but we regularly strive to pack as much flavor into sub 7% beers as is possible.
How do I find you?
Our taproom is located at 1932 Long Hill Rd., Suite A in lovely Millington, NJ, directly across from the Millington train station. Feel free to park right on the street in front or in the main lot next to the post office.
Can I bring my kids?
Absolutely! We're all parents running the show and fully understand needing/wanting to bring the little ones along. We do ask that kids remain with their adult at all times. While we love having them around, it is a full production facility behind the bar and we don't want any young ones wandering back there unattended.
Can I bring my dog/cat/alpaca?
While we absolutely love hanging out with our furry buds, we currently are only allowing well-behaved, non-service animals on the outside terrace area. Service animals are allowed inside.
Do you serve food?
Unfortunately not. New Jersey state regulations do not currently allow breweries to make/serve food, or to coordinate with food vendors. We absolutely DO allow folks to bring in food or have it delivered to them while at the brewery.
What about wine/spirits/NA beer?
Similar to the above, we are only allowed to serve the beer we produce on-site. As for non-alcoholic beer, it is actually much more complicated of a process, and we do not have the equipment to dealcoholize our products.
How does GROWLER HOUR(s) work?
For anyone looking to have a growler filled, head over to our taproom on Thursdays between 4pm - 7pm. We will be open during that time for growler fills only, not for regular taproom service.
Can growlers be filled during regular taproom hours?
At the moment, growlers will only be filled during the designated GROWLER HOUR(s) time frame on Thursdays, due to the setup required for filling.
Can I bring my own growler?
Due to our filling system, we will only be filling Oakflower growlers purchased onsite, or any clean growlers of the same size (750ml).
How long will my filled growler last?
We suggest finishing your growler by the end of the weekend for ideal freshness. Once opened, it's best to consume in one sitting rather than trying to reseal to drink later.
Will you have additional to go options?
At this time, to go options are limited to growler fills. We'll be rolling out additional options soon, so stay connected for updates!
