We are Brainy Borough Brewing

The Brainy Borough Brewing concept came from a group of “Metuchenites” talking about their love of good brew and the desire to grow a home brewing community in Metuchen.

Our founder and Managing Partner, Joe Cascio, (who has various contacts within the events industry) thoroughly  researched beer festivals and breweries. He founded Brainy Borough Brewing in 2017 with the hopes to create a microbrewery brand within the Borough.

“In reviewing both the success and failures within the industry, we truly believe we have a well-executed and scalable plan to build the brand and a successful brewing business. The overall community sentiment has been extremely positive. Our plan moving forward is to innovate and grow as demand is created.” ~ Joe Cascio

Remarkable Brews:

The “Know Brainer”

American Wheat: An American wheat beer brewed with pale malt, white and flaked wheat which gives it a crisp taste and a smooth feel on the palate. Hopped with Citra, Cascade and Pekko for flowery/ citrus finish.

ABV 5.4%, IBU 23

The “Highbrow”

Classic Amber Ale: brewed with pale malt, brown malt and roasted barley it sports a caramel/ toffee- like profile with very light earthy, piney hop notes in the background. Hops are Chinook and East Kent Golding.

ABV 6.5%, IBU 28

The “Jalabraiño”

IPA: Pepper Conditioned IPA. This Mosaic and Simcoe IPA really takes on its own character with the addition of fresh jalapeños during conditioning. It starts like an IPA then finishes with pepper flavor on the palate. Followed by subtle heat that warms you up from the inside.

ABV 6%, IBU 44

The “Get Smart-ER“

New England Double IPA: You asked for it, we listened! This double dry hopped New England style DIPA is our biggest beer yet. El Dorado, Vic Secret and Kohatu Hops bring the dank with a fluffy mouthfeel boasting big notes of tropical fruity haze.

ABV 9%, IBU 15


Stout: This rich stout is brewed with a myriad of malts including crystal, biscuit, chocolate and oats along with others that give this black beauty a chocolatey, slightly sweet taste with a hint of bitterness making it a year-round pleaser!

ABV 6.5%, IBU 40

The “Hillpot” Harvest Amber Ale

Harvest Amber Ale: Amber Ale brewed with pale, crystal and Munich malts, along with a touch of rye to encourage notes of toasted bread and walnuts highlighted by a touch of sweetness.

ABV 5.9%, IBU 25
