We heard about a new micro (nano?) brewery not far away… so we had another destination for a bike ride.
Old Hights Brewing Co. is just off Main Street in Hightstown. So after a 36-mile ride into the Sourlands and a bit of chilling at home the other weekend, we found the energy for a fast-paced 7.5 miles to pick up a four-pack.
Here’s what we learned:
- You should reserve a table in the tiny beer garden (tables socially distanced), but if there are no-shows and a table is open, you can sit down. Otherwise grab and go during the limited hours.
- Sundays are family days … so go with the neighbors?
- No food sold so you can bring your own or get it from a local eatery.
- Mamey ice cream is orange, made from a tropical fruit and is sold by the deli across the alley
- No mixing in a four-pack unless it’s their flight series. Too bad because I wanted the sour (made with a few fruits, and thanks for the taste), but when all you have are your bikes … let’s just say Ladder 41, brewed to support the fire department, won out, and it impressed some of our beer-loving friends.
We followed the same route we take to Patel Brothers and then crossed Route 571 onto the extension of One Mile Road to reach Dutch Neck Road and to cross U.S. 130 into Hightstown. That was shorter than getting to Dutch Neck Road earlier, and we are comfortable with Cranbury Neck Road.
