about twin lights
Twin Lights dates back to 2016, when childhood friends Mike Betros and Will Grundmann decided to spend a Saturday afternoon doing something different: Brewing Beer. Both were raised in Middletown Township, and have roots along the Raritan Bay area of the Jersey Shore. They ultimately named their small operation after the Navesink Twin Lights Lighthouse, which currently sits in Highlands and overlooks Sandy Hook State Park.
After homebrewing for 4 years, they decided to take turn it into a business in 2020, launching in at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic as a contract brewery. They brewed 100% of their beer at other breweries, and did not have a physical brewery or tasting room of their own. They sold everything through restaurants, bars, and liquor stores.
After 2 years, Twin Lights opened its brewery and tasting room in the home of the former Jughandle Brewing Company in Tinton Falls on labor day weekend of 2022. With a focus on providing a quality atmosphere and experience, the brewery frequently hosts live events including Trivia, Karaoke, local musicians, comedy, and more.
Currently all beer is brewed on site on a 7 BBL electric system, and is packaged on site with with an inhouse canning line. Styles of beer range from Lagers to IPas, Stouts and Sours, and everything in between. With a rotating tap list of 13 beers, in addition to canned beers and hard seltzers, there is something for everyone to enjoy, even the non-beer drinker. All beer is available to go in cans and kegs.
Although they do not serve food, there are several food places in the same shopping plaza, including Pizza, Mexican, Chinese, as well as numerous other places nearby. They are always Family and Dog friendly. Stop by and say hello!
