Great craft beer and very friend;y staff
Apr 2019
Stopped by while working in north NJ. Great IPA and the staff was very friendly. Small place but plenty of seating, no food, but other customers were having food delivered. Great name, from Gen Washington's experiences! Would definitely return if I am in the area. Thanks.

Great find!
May 2019 • Solo
I was in town for work and finished early one afternoon. I Googled "breweries near me" and came up with a handful within 10 or 15 minutes ride. Not sure why I picked Fort Nonsense, but I ended up happy!

I am an IPA fan and they had two on tap. They gave me a sample of each. I opted for the Great Falls IPA which I enjoyed very much!

The barkeep was a friendly sort and was happy to answer questions.

Now that I know the lay of the land, next time I will probably walk up to the Alexis Diner and grab some grub to bring to FNBC to have with my beer.

Their beer is a bit more expensive than I am used to (I live in NC) but only by a buck or two. Life is too short to worry about small change!

An Acquired Taste
Sep 2018 • Solo
As a seventy year old, I have been drinking beer for 50 years. Barley, wheat oats and hops have been the recipe for beer making for most of my adult life. The craft beer explosion has taken me by surprise. I love beer so exclusively on that motivation, I am willing to try to join in on the craft beer phenomenon. Fort Nonsense Brewery offers beers with amarillo hops, notes of dark chocolate, coriander, orange peel, coffee beans, citrus, kumquat, mango and other seasonal ingredients. Quite frankly, I am unable to make the transition. The beer I was most comfortable with was Benedict Amber (5.4% ABV, hops grown in Randolph) with a bitter bite. When I visited they had a nice crowd and the small tasting room was nearly full on a weekend early evening. There is a small corner bar with tables for 4 and 2 spread around. The room was clean, cozy and a wood feel. The picture of Washington's Crossing was what I remember most. A flight of 4 5 ounce drinks will set you back $12 which in my estimation is reasonable but not cheap. A ten ounce pour is $5 and a 16 ounce pour is $6.50. They do not offer food but you can bring your own or order delivery from local vendors. The owners are very appreciative of your business. There were a lot of young people when I visited. Hanging out drinking beer and playing board games seem to fit their style. If you like craft beers and hanging out, this is a good a place as any.

Nice small brewery
Oct 2018 • Friends
Very nice small brewery. Had about 9 beers to select from including a Halloween Blend. Cute creative names for each beer. Something for every taste. They have trivia night on Thursdays and a nice selection of games if you wanted to stay awhile. You can also bring your own food.

Like Having a Brewery at Home
Aug 2018 • Friends
The atmosphere here is extremely relaxed and different from every other scene in the county. It really feels like you're just chilling in a basement/backyard/brew shed at someone's home. There is some great experimentation here which is good and bad that, there is always something new but sometimes your favorites are gone (for a while). For an operation that is so young, I cannot wait for them to refine their data and grow! Their prices are on point, and I highly suggest bringing a growler home. BYOF, with plenty of options near by.

It’s like your own personal brewery. Family friendly. Great place.

Cozy brewery with a nice selection of their beers. Excellent staff. There are board games to play or bring your own. They have a large compilation of local menus. We have ordered food for delivery multiple times. They do not serve food here.
Nothing better than ordering for delivery having great micro brews and good times with friends.
You can see their brewing operation and tanks at the front of their building.
Love this place. Love the owners. Five stars from me and they support local businesses. Have had local coffee beans in their coffee stout too.

Business still has to grow and mature but if you're looking for craft beer made locally....
Feb 2018 • Friends
I think it's the first local craft brewery here in Morris County and so, some accolades should be made for these folks. The location is busy and can make it difficult to access as after 5pm, that part of Route 10 is packed with commuters going home. But once you get here, there's enough parking unless the yoga salon has a full house. The building is part industrial for the brewing, and part commercial for the customers to drink and taste the beer. It feels like you're in a friend's unfinished den in a way. That didn't really steer me away as I was there to try some different beers. Sadly, all the different beers on offer that evening were not of my liking as there were many wheat beers and almost fruit based. They have I believe 8 taps and so 8 different beers possibly on offer. I can't imagine that they have large batches of the different beers that they make, so once they run out, it's gone. I don't think they've been in business long enough to have established a signature beer. But give these guys some time and the place will become more finished and they'll learn what sells and what doesn't. It was good that they offered a flight of beers for $12, 4x5oz which is a good price to try different items.
