Beer On The Boards
Martell’s – Point Pleasant Beach
Time: 12:30 – 4 and 6 – 9:30




The Point Pleasant Chamber of Commerce is hosting this great beer event featuring some fantastic Hunterdon breweries! There will be two sessions along with a gourmet buffet! Below is the official press release for the event organized by the Beerheads crew!

“The months of January and February are relatively slow for the restaurants and pubs in most coastal towns, with local residents either holed up for warmth or saving money to pay off their holiday bills.

But once March arrives and the days start to brighten, locals look for reasons to go back to the beach.

One of them is the annual Beers on the Boards craft beer tasting event, to be held once again at Martell’s on the boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach.

This popular fundraiser for the PPB Chamber of Commerce has grown into a celebrated local event that combines excellent food with a variety of interesting craft beer flavors in a relaxed setting overlooking the ocean. This year, that relationship between food and beer will be further explored, this time with a Cooking with Beer demonstration and a short flavor-pairing primer added to each festival session.

All of this happens on Saturday, March 28st at Martell’s Tiki Bar on the boardwalk. As in the past, the first session is 12:30-4:00PM and the second session is 6:00-9:30PM. Advance tickets online are priced at $55 per person (with a $25 ticket available to designated drivers). That price includes not only two ounce pours of fresh craft beers from 35+ participating breweries, but also an amazing gourmet buffet that stretches across two rooms and features an array of beer-cooked dishes. The food is all-you-can-eat and the two-ounce pours are unlimited. Guests get a commemorative tasting glass.

Breweries participating range from NJ’s own (Cape May, Flying Fish, Carton, East Coast) to a selection of regional and national standouts (Brooklyn, Victory, Stone, Ommegang).

Guests who have attended in the past have raved about the food, the oceanfront setting, the beers, and the fact that the producers and Martell’s do not overcrowd the space.

Tickets and information are available at The PPB Chamber of Commerce holds several annual fundraisers and more information is available at”
