Terramar Brewing & Distilling opens
A new brewery is open in Edison.
Terramar Brewing & Distilling opened Aug. 23, said co-owner Chris Barker. The goal is to open the distillery part of the business soon, he said.
The brewery serves wood-fired pizza.
The brewery is located in a former 1890s slaughterhouse that has been used for different purposes since, Barker said.
A grand opening is set for Halloween.
“(Business) has been great,” Barker said. “We’re still kind of in soft-opening mode right now. We’ve had great feedback.”
Terramar Brewing & Distilling is at 5712 Gilkey Ave.
