The Referend 1st Anniversary

  • The Referend Bier Blendery 1595 Reed Road Pennington, NJ, 08534 United States (map)

The Referend is celebrating one year of openness with new beers and old beers, young beers and old beers, new friends and old friends, young friends and old friends.

In gratitude for all the support we've received this first year, we are working toward creating an event to be involuntarily remembered for years to come.

Alleluiavers 2016
In celebration, we'll be tapping our last remaining cask of Berliner Messe: Alleluiavers (2016), which has been peacefully conditioning for the past 53 weeks. Only another couple weeks to go!

The Blue Book
We began with a puncheon of Wittgenstein, our spontaneously fermented witbier brewed with local NJ trifoliate oranges and conditioned on local organic chamomile flowers, then added 500 pounds of fresh, whole blueberries from the self-proclaimed Blueberry Capital of the World, Hammonton, NJ.
At 455g/L of fruit, this is one of the more highly fruited beers we've produced. With a great deal of volume displaced by the blueberries themselves, there is an extremely limited amount of The Blue Book. It will be debuting on draft Dec. 2!


Liber Novus 2017
One withheld cask of Liber Novus remains from this summer's harvest of all-NJ raspberries and handpicked dark-juiced sour cherries. Come enjoy it with us on Saturday!

Wittgenstein Magnums and 1er Anniversary Glass
Checking in on our Wittgenstein magnums while testing out the 1er Anniversary glass. Good news: the beer tastes great; the glass holds liquid. Both will be available (albeit in limited quantities) on Saturday!

Later Event: December 1
