It’s been a while everyone. I hope a lot of you made it out to Stout City in January.  We’ve been keeping ourselves busy here at Old Bay, and those of you who have come through our doors within the last couple of months have experienced some of the drastic changes going on here. In our thirtieth year here in New Brunswick we’ve decided to “grow up” a little bit.

As far as the beer goes, you know you’ll always be able to find awesome beers on tap and in our fridges. That will always remain the same as being one of New Jersey’s first craft beer bars. We’re planning some really fun things in the months to come. We’re giving our tap takeovers a little overhaul in the coming months. It’s something I think everyone will really enjoy. We’re going to call them Brewery Nights, so the takeover will feature what you can get at their brewery, but also some rarities that might only be brewery exclusive. We’ll offer growler fills on special, flights and tastings. So the idea, is that we’re bringing the brewery experience to you!

We’re also shining the spotlight on our Seafood expertise. For decades when you thought Cajun/Creole food, there was no where else to go but The Old Bay. Now, we’re taking our love of fresh fish and seafood, and making that the emphasis on your dining experience. Sure, you’ll still find all of your Louisiana Favorites on our menu, we’re not crazy, but you’ll also be amazed by our new and fresh Seafood options.

Mardi Gras is steadily approaching and you know where to be! Once again, Magic Hat will be here with the beads, the masks, and the giveaways. A trip to Vermont for Magic Hat’s Mardi Gras Party? You bet! Maybe I’ll see the lucky winner there this year!

Have you tried our new Mystery Flight? It’s a fun little game where you purchase a flight and try to guess what beers they are? If you get them right you are dubbed an Old Bay Sultan of Suds, your very own Old Bay Growler, a $25 Gift Card, your photo on the wall, and all of the fame and glory that comes with it. You can play Tuesday through Thursday from 6-9pm. It really is a fun time for you and your friends. So come on down and try to best the Beer Meister!

Hope to see everyone here for Mardi Gras and until next time…

Cheers to great beer!
