Slack Tide is reeling them in MARK HAYNIE AT THE SHORE The Press of Atlantic City
Slack Tide Brewing, located at 1072 Route 83 in Clermont, Cape May County, opened about two weeks ago to anxious supporters who filled the new taproom and brewing area. With only a half-barrel system at present, Jason and Tadgh Campbell brewed their hearts out to be sure to have enough beer on hand to please the thirsty throngs that “poured” into the brewery. Their dream finally realized, the Campbells were pleased to see that word-of-mouth and social media brought in a steady stream of beer drinkers looking to taste their brewing endeavors.
Flights and pints streamed from the taps for the visitors and many a growler was filled to take their favorites home. Five were on tap that day and they expect that at least six beers will regularly be available, among them Angry Osprey (an American IPA), Bell Buoy (Belgian blonde), Bucktail (American brown ale), 5 Fathom (pale ale), Monkey Face (dry stout), and the recently added Double Header (Imperial American IPA) and Prissy Wicks (Belgian golden strong). In about six months, their shiny new three-barrel system will be in place, and we’ll see even greater creations from these guys. Watch for their hours on Facebook, Twitter and their website, SlackTideBrewingCo.com. It’s certainly worth the trip.
