I'm in Hoboken, does that count as South Jersey? I kinda jump around between here, New Brunswick, and Bergen County

To clarify anyone living in ocean county, Brick or Toms River live in central NJ. Everyone from here knows that 732 is central. South Jersey starts at the 609, area code that is.

Everything's great at Exit 8! (off the turnpike, of course).

Also applicable... "Route 130; its so dirty!"

Princeton and Trenton are South Jersey then? I'm in Burlington, not originally from Jersey, so I don't have a clue. :mug:

I've got two vessels that need sight glasses along with a valve for the Hot water tank. But I'm still too chicken to drill the holes.

Outside of Princeton here. I think parts of Mercer county are central too. I'm at the western end of 33 and consider it central but admittedly it's the southern part :)

I don't belong. I have too many time committments as it is already. I do frequently auto-delete emails from the PALE ALES club though.

Long Hill Township here. Not in a brew club yet.

Since I grew up in Montvale (172 on the pkwy), I thought anything from the Driscoll Bridges South was "down the shore". Though after living in Colonia for several years I agree that central NJ includes Monmouth county, Middlesex county and Mercer. Everything else is South or North. JMHO! cheers!

Are the WHALES meetings usually packed Bobby?

Also, I may hit you up about some fittings after I pick up my pots from the group buy... since were practically neighbors and all lol:p

Noob from Neptune but I work in Mount Holly. Is there a listing of homebrew clubs in jersey (primarily central area, only list I found was for really north or really south)?

Just finished my second batch of extract, figured I would do quite a few more extract before switching to all-grain/partial/or BIAB but would love to join one in the future to gain a bit more knowledge.

We're down to 52 members this year so it's not too crazy.

Newbie from Union Beach. 2nd batch is currently in primary and I'll probably look to join a club soon so I can learn more and eventually move on to AG, etc. I assume WHALES would make the most sense for me. That's the one that meets at JJ Bittings, correct?
