Rinn Duin's First Press Release

Rinn Duin Brewing to Open in Summer 2013

NJ's newest craft brewery features ales from the UK and Ireland

Toms River, NJ: In 2010, father/daughter Chip and Jacqui Town were traipsing through corporate America; and while brewing a batch of their summer ale, they continued constant talk of a dream: opening a microbrewery.  With 22 years of combined home brewing experience and backgrounds in business, it grew into an extremely feasible goal.  Fast forward to 2013.  Chip and Jacqui are the proud founders of Rinn Duin Brewing, only weeks from opening its doors.

Rinn Duin will open as one of New Jersey’s largest craft breweries by production capacity, equipped with a 25 barrel (775 gallon) brewhouse.  You will find their bottles and kegs in bars, restaurants and liquor stores beginning late this summer throughout Ocean and Monmouth Counties.

Rinn Duin Brewing is inspired by the Town family’s indubious heritage, originating from County Roscommon, Ireland.  Castle Rinn Duin was built by The English Royal Army in the early 1200’s.  It survived countless battles by the hands of the Irish, including a fire, before the British relinquished the castle in 1576.  Chip’s grandparents were the last family to live on the grounds of the castle, before donating the land to the Irish Heritage Council in the 1940’s.  Their family history, past and present, is found in midst of the designs and names of their beer, each having their own unique, and personal story.

Located on Route 37 West in Toms River (3.5 miles west of Parkway Exit 82A), Rinn Duin is putting their spin on traditional English, Irish and Scottish ales.  Nestled in the heart of Ocean County, they invite you to stop by for a tour and a pint, with the Town family.
