OFFERINGS AS DIVERSE AS JERSEY CITY
#DefinitelyNotGlutenFree & Gluten Free Craft Beer that everyone can enjoy!
The Departed Soles mission is to provide a craft beer solution for everyone's parched lips. No man or woman should have to go through life without a good beer buy their side, so we strive to have something for everyone. We aren't trying to be like any other brewery... sure, we have some Hazy IPAs and trendy sours, but we clean up nice, and offer lucid lagers, English-style Ales, & heritage styles. Our flagship is an Imperial Belgian Ale, and for every pastry stout out, we have a Gluten Free goodie on draft an in cans!
"WHEN YOU BREW WHAT YOU LOVE, YOU'LL NEVER WORK A DAY IN YOUR LIFE..."
Craft beer is about community, and at Departed Soles, we're about inclusivity. Everyone in our community should be able to enjoy the memories that ensue from beer-centric events, whether it is a summer BBQ, tailgate, game of beer pong, or chilling in your parents' basement. We offer a carefully curated menu of #DefinitelyNotGlutenFree and Gluten Free Craft Beer options to make sure there is something for everyone not only at our brewery, but at your neighborhood bar or restaurant that supports us.
You've heard them say the pizza and bagels are best in New Jersey because of the water, right? Well the same goes for the beer crafted here! While we treat the water for each beer based of the style, our local water makes our beer impossible to replicate elsewhere!
ONLY THE BEST MALTS
Whether we are being up something with oodles of gluten, or completely without it, malt provides us with the canvas on which other ingredients thrive. Departed Soles partners with some of the finest maltsters in the world, and always supports local farming when possible!
FRESH HOPS, FOR DAYS
After the water and grain play, Departed Soles employs the freshest hops attainable to deliver the pièce de résistance on each offering. Whether it's just a touch at first wort, a heavy helping in the whirlpool, or piles in the fermenter, hops provide a cornucopia of flavors and aromatics to the finish beer.
Fermentation, followed by conditioning and carbonation, also plays a huge part in the way your final beer is perceived. Whether it is lucid or opaque, has hints of clove or perfectly juicy, Departed Soles employs fresh yeast on each batch of beer, including select gluten free strains, to ensure each batch is as unique and flavorful as can be!
WE'RE NOT "JUST" A GLUTEN FREE BREWERY THOUGH...
Departed Soles is proud to be the first brewery in Jersey focused on brewing quality gluten free beer that tastes like something more "traditional," but it's not all that we do. About 60% of our offerings are #DefinitleyNotGlutenFree
