5-Star TripAdvisor Review for Cold Spring Brewery…. “Wonderful place to drink! I had to write because I have been to a large number of craft breweries, and I think this could be the best venue in the NJ. The brewery is beautiful inside, and outside it has a fire pit, picnic tables, umbrellas, and lawn games. It is the only brewery where I feel welcome to take my kids and dog. The crowd was family friendly and it was not a not a college bar with plenty of space. The location is known for its perfect water, and the beer had no heavy aftertaste, like other breweries that use city or treated water.” Hops on over… We are open from noon-8pm today.
