Attention Muggers!

It's time for New Hampshire and the United Kingdom!

From the UK, the newest beer in our European Traveler lineup is the incredibly highly rated and super rare John Courage Russian Imperial Stout!

And from New Hampshire, the newest beer in our American Traveler lineup is the Old Brown Dog from Smuttynose...an old classic that we couldn't resist.

Our new Mug Clubs are just getting started and it's never too late to join. But we do encourage you to join soon. We still have some beer from Iceland, Austria, Poland, Sweden, Portugal, Germany, Scotland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland and South Carolina!

Check out our Mug Club Page down below for more details!

"Traveler Edition" 

The new clubs offer 3 great ways to achieve beer exploration greatness! For the European and American clubs we will stock a very limited amount of bottles to enjoy for a single country or state. They will be available exclusively to our new Muggers. Once we run out it's on to the next. For our NJ club we will feature guest taps from our fellow brewers in-state. And as we've done in the past, muggers will be required to enjoy our in house brews as well. It's $20 to join each club and we'll order t-shirts for our new members. Check out our page below for more info on each club!

OUR STORY

The Ship Inn is the first in New Jersey since prohibition to brew beer for consumption on premise. It provides a family-friendly English pub atmosphere in the scenic Delaware valley. Enjoy craft-brewed ales, ciders, and home-made, British-inspired foods with locally sourced ingredients.

With original Victorian tin ceiling, exposed brick and beams, hatch-board tables and nautical fixtures, and an English-style brewery, The Ship Inn is a unique place to meet friends, host club gatherings, or to hold family events. We offer casual, family-friendly dining and  provide simple, home-made British and American pub food from local  sources.

Follow the links here or at the bottom of the site if you are interested in  booking an event or visiting other places of interest nearby.

OUR REGULAR BEER STYLES

The Ship Inn has been brewing since January of 1995. Each week we brew fine ales based on styles from the British Isles and beyond in our brick-and-wood clad Peter Austin brewing system. All of our ales made with Ringwood yeast, are unfiltered, and served off of their sediment so as to ensure conditioning of flavor. Cask-style ales such as our flagship Best Bitter are served  at cellar temperature from the beer engine with natural carbonation.  Our other ales are served slightly cooler with additional carbonation or nitrogen mix for the American palate.

On Tap at the Ship

Best Bitter: A traditional English style cask conditioned pale ale, naturally carbonated and served on our hand pump. This medium bodied house specialty has a fruity hop finish. 5.8% abv

Golden Wheat: This house ale is made with a blend of malted barley and wheat, lightly hopped to produce a crisp and smooth session ale. 4.0% abv

Dark Charger: A medium bodied brown ale. This ale is brewed with dark crystal and chocolate malts to give an attractive color and slightly bitter taste. 5.7% abv

New Striped Rooster: This summer session ale is creamy and well balanced with a hint of bitterness on the finish. served on nitro and perfect after a day of floating on the river or cutting your lawn. Cheers! 5.0% abv

Not your Mama's Coffee Porter: This coffee porter was brewed with locally roasted Colombian coffee beans from Homestead Coffee Roasters. A perfect perk up for your day. 6.0% abv

Coming soon...

Dirty Hipster: It's...whatever. We hope you like it...or not...we don't care. (Just kidding...we're not hipsters, so we hope you like our dry-hopped, super unfiltered hoppy brown ale. It's dirty...like hipsters.) 6.5% abv 

Eire Aontaithe: A silky smooth, dry and roasty nitro stout, brewed in honor of a United Ireland! 5.2% abv

WATER OF LIFE...

The literal translation given by Irish monks during the Middle ages to describe distilled alcohol in the Celtic world.

In Irish Gaelic it was known as Uisce Beatha. In Scottish Gaelic, Uisge Beatha.
We know it as Whiskey...and it pairs well with a craft brewed ale. Join us at the brewery to enjoy both.

MUG CLUB: TRAVELER EDITION

The Ship Inn/Descendants Brewing Company is excited to announce the launch of our new mug club-Traveler Edition...featuring 3 new ways to achieve beer exploration greatness! As with the old club the main objective is enjoying all of our in-house brewed beers. But each new club comes with it's own twist and perks. For the European and American clubs we will stock a very limited amount of bottles to enjoy for a single country or state. They will be available exclusively to our new Muggers. Once we run out it's on to the next tasty brew. For our NJ club we will feature guest taps from our fellow brewers in-state.

The new clubs will start out with the bottle and NJ tap challenge...and as we introduce our new Descendants Ales we'll round out each club with our in-house brewed beers. Membership is $20 per club or $45 for all 3...and we'll order you a t-shirt. Once completed of course each Mugger will earn their very on Traveler Edition Mug to proudly hang up in the brewery! Cheers to beer exploration!
