Zed’s on the West Coast–IPA v8
For Volume 8, we kept the base grain bill and Fuggles, but not much else. Tomahawk, Magnum at the 20 min mark, but then all Loral thru flame out, producing a high IBU, but balanced IPA. ABV: 6.0% IBU: 82
Zed’s in The Universe–Pale 42
Made with mostly American 2 Row and supported by Centennial, Cascade and Amarillo hops, this beer has an appealing floral nose and apricot undertones on the tastebuds. ABV: 5.0% IBU: 42
Zed’s in the Backyard–Copper Cream Ale
Rich and Creamy, with a smooth mouthfeel balanced by a slight “bite” from the yeast and a light hopping with Centennial. Gets its coppery glow from a kiss of caramel and black-patent malt. ABV: 5.5% IBU: 19
Zed’s In Ireland–dry stout
Dry? Sweet? Milk? These are just words. Beautiful Bakers chocolate and coffee on the nose, bitter chocolate in the mouth. ABV: 4.1% IBU: 27
Zed’s at Home–Evesham Gold
Brewed specifically on the anniversary of our lease signing, this version of our Jersey Blonde is a bit richer. ABV: 5.5% IBU: 24
Zed’s on the NAUGHTY List–Winter Spiced Ale
Tree spices (cinnamon, clove, bitter and sweet orange peel) and coriander give way to dark plum and cherry in this true Winter Warmer. ABV: 7.5% IBU: 71
Zed’s with Joe–Coffee Cream Ale
After a long night of brewing, we decided to cold brew a batch of our Copper Cream Ale. Roasted coffee flavor and aroma take turns waking up your nose and tastebuds!
Zed’s Snowbird Envy–Gose Style
Zed’s envious of the snowbirds! We created this Gose to start with a sharp aroma followed by a refreshingly lime and salty finish. Hold onto Summer as long as possible! ABV: 5.4 IBU: 18
Zed’s Up-Side Down–Down Under Pale Ale
Zed’s turned all around and upside down with this pale ale! Pacific Gem, Green Bullet and Dr. Rudi combine to create a perfume bitterness that lingers in the mouth after the swallow. Dry hopped with even more Dr. Rudi to create the spicy afterglow. ABV: 5.5% IBU: 69
Zed’s in the Bog–Cranberry Wit
Since we’re a Brewery in NJ, we’re required by law* to create a beer from cranberries. We made a delicious Wit, with more than 42 pounds of local cranberries. ABV: 5.2% IBU: 18 *might not be true
Zed’s with Terry–Chocolate Orange Stout
I love those Terry’s Chocolates from England that you have to *whack* to open. This is the dark chocolate orange confectionary; as a Stout. ABV: 5.5% IBU: 19
Zed’s on Maple Ave–Maple Waffle Ale
Sweet and delicious from the get-go, this year’s version of Zed’s on Maple Ave–Maple Waffle Ale brings the maple forward even more. ABV: 4.9% IBU: 23
Who is Zed, anyway?
a Bado family legend
According to Bado family lore, our great-grandfather worked in the mines in Chop, Hungary. On his days off and as he could, he would brew beer for the other miners. The containers? Steel pails. I think he should be credited for inventing the Growler and Crowler!
