Slack Tide Brewing Company Still Reeling Them in After First Year

Cape May County Herald, January 16, 2016

Like many home brewers, brothers Jason and Tadhg Campbell dreamed of having their own brewery. Now after over a year in business, it’s sometimes hard for them to believe that their dream has become a reality.

2016 Critics Choice Award

Craft Beer and Brewing Magazine, November 29, 2016

Slack Tide Brewing Co. (Cape May, New Jersey): So new it almost squeaks, Slack Tide won the Philadelphia Inquirer “Brew-vitational” competition (I was lucky to be a judge!) with a Belgian Blonde, and subsequent tastings have convinced me they’re for real. New Jersey is coming along as a craft-beer–friendly state, and several new breweries there are worth a visit.

10 Must-Try Fall Beers from New Jersey Craft Breweries October 16, 2016

Leaves are falling, pumpkins are being picked, football is back on T.V. You ceremoniously dust off your favorite hoodie and zipping it up feels like the warm embrace of a dear old friend. Pumpkin spiced everything is everywhere. It’s fall in New Jersey . . .

First Draft: Craft Beer Down the Shore August 11, 2016

There's still a couple weeks left in summer, which means there's still time to take a trip down the shore. I usually get to the beach at least once every summer, sometimes twice if I'm lucky. In recent years, I've tried to fit in a trip to a local brewery while at the beach. This year, during my annual trip to North Wildwood, N.J., I visited Slack Tide Brewing Co. in Clermont, N.J., about 20 minutes from Wildwood.

Brew-vitational 2016: The winners - 3 Champs, 2 Divisions June 2, 2016

South Jersey Beers Come Up Big in Brew-vitational's Biggest Competition Yet June 2, 2016

There is a beauty to the meritocracy of a blind beer tasting. There's no slick marketing to influence decisions. No brand loyalty tugging at judges' sympathies. At The Inquirer's seventh annual Brew-vitational competition for local beers, our biggest yet with 64 entries from 35 breweries divided into two categories ("new" and "sour"), every beer had an equal opportunity to impress the panel on its own virtues. The dozen judges carefully sniffed and sipped their way through wave after wave of vibrant brews, each served in a clear cup marked only with a coded number. Three top beers were chosen in each category.

22 of the Best Summer Craft Beers Brewed in New Jersey

NJ101.5 May 27, 2016

With the weather finally starting to warm up in the great Garden State, it’s only natural that we beer lovers start to seek out lighter, more refreshing styles. Styles that align with our rekindled love for all things summer.

Luckily for us there are plenty of great local breweries crafting serious seasonal brews! Some celebrate the traditional summer styles of beer pioneered by early German, Belgian and French farmers. Styles such as saisons, wheats and pilsners, which were brewed to provide a safe source of hydration and nourishment, while being low enough in alcohol that the farmers could keep working.

Other breweries take inspiration from the best that summertime in New Jersey has to offer, with beers meant to be enjoyed while vacationing at the Jersey Shore. Or how about a beer that was brewed as the perfect hiking companion?

We’ve assembled a list of the best locally brewed summer craft beers. You’re bound to find a style you like that complements whatever summer activities you enjoy! Here’s to a great summer in New Jersey. Cheers!

Brews Brothers: Slack Tide Brewing Co. Opens in Clermont

Seven Mile TImes: Memorial Day 2016

When I first started writing the craft-beer column in 2011, Cape May Brewing and Tuckahoe Brewing Co. were paving the way as the first craft breweries in Cape May County. Though New Jersey is the 11th most populous state, there is still a lot of catching up to do when it comes to the numner of breweries per capita compared to other states. But the tide is turning , as the state's 39th brewery opened its taps in nearby Clermonth in Decemer.

Shore Craft Beer Industry Riding a Second Wave

Lower Township Gazette April 14, 2016

There’s a beer explosion underway at the Jersey Shore. Wait, that sounds like a disastrous attempt at home brewing. Maybe we could go with a tidal wave of beer – tie it in with the whole beach thing? However you put it, there is a lot more beer being brewed at the shore than ever, and several more breweries are on the way. “It’s a big uptick,” said Jason Campbell, who recently launched Slack Tide Brewing in Clermont with his brother, Tadhg (pronounced Teg). “It’s good for extending the tourist season. It’s good for a lot of things. A lot of new places are climbing on the bandwagon, including us.”


Slack Tide’s new tasting room at 1072 Route 83 opened just before Christmas. It offers tours and tastings on Saturdays and Sundays, with plans to expand hours in the summer.


Slack tide is a term used mostly by fishermen for when the water is either all the way in or all the way out. In other words, says Campbell, it’s when there’s no tension at all, a natural pause.


Slack Tide is Reeling Them In

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, It’s certainly worth the trip.
