Demented Brewing Company

Demented Brewing Company has teamed up with Hunterdon to bring more local brews to the Garden State. Tom and Melissa Zuber opened Demented in 2015 along with head brewer Jason Meehan and they have already begun to expand their operation in Middlesex, NJ. Their brewery consists of a custom 10 BBL brewing system with two 10 BBL fermenters, a 15 BBL bright beer tank, and a new 30 BBL fermenter which has more than doubled their production.

Hunterdon is thrilled to be adding this brewery to our portfolio and the fact that they are located in our home state is a huge bonus! “I’m very excited to be adding Demented Brewing Company to our world class portfolio” stated Scott Crystal, Hunterdon’s Project Manager. “New Jersey’s local brewery scene is growing more rapidly than I think anyone could have hoped. Tom, Jason, and the rest of the crew at Demented are proving themselves to be real standouts. When I had my first pint of Demented I thought, “This is beer I really need to be selling!” I’m really excited to see what this brewery can do in the future.”

This week we launch with these delicious new beers on draft! Check back soon for more info on where you can get a pint!

Double Dementia – Reserved for the most infernal of palates, Double Dementia is a sinful collection of classic west coast hops blended with malts the color of hellfire. Just the right amount of bitter, followed by an explosion of juicy citrus flavor blended with bright floral aromas. Drinking easier than any Imperial IPA should, this beer is evil… that’s what we love about it.

Dementia – If her bigger sibling is too much for you to handle, perhaps Dementia will be just what you’re looking for. We’ve packed all the intense west coast hop flavor of our Double IPA into a lighter, more drinkable India Pale Ale. Be forewarned, drinking twice as much of this beer will get you into just as much trouble

Scarlet Night – Sailor take warning: Whether our neck of the Raritan River is where you live or work, play or study of this we’re certain… Scarlet Night is a beer everyone can enjoy. Our American Red Ale is a liquid tribute to all that we love about Middlesex, the Hub City, and being local. A blend of five different malts gives this brew intense red color and complexity, a medium body with light caramel sweetness and a feint roast finish. Just enough hops balance it out with a slight bitterness and great flavor that trails into an earthy floral nose. Red sky at night… a beer drinker’s delight.
