Hey knuckleheads, this N J. brewery is selling another Murphy-inspired beer

“We want to give people more choices and let Joshua have more fun,” Len Dummer said. Josh Dummer studied culinary arts at Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island, but he is hamstrung by the limitations of the current kitchen. They want to install a deep fryer, open flame, hood, and ANSUL system. “Being here, it’s a crazy amount of hours,” Jake Dummer said. We’ve detected that JavaScript is disabled in this browser.

And the Knuckleheads are planning quite the shindig. The Knuckleheads continue to show us why they’re such a valued part of our Webster community. A look inside the brewery in a photo from the Knucklehead Facebook page. New lighting has been installed in front and in back, and come November, a new retaining wall will be put in, further expanding the pub’s parking options. Plus, both the interior and exterior have been painted.

There will also be DVD’s, Blue Ray, music CD’s and LPs — definitely something for adults, teens and children. Including cooking, gardening, hobbies, biographies, religion, history, sports, travel, foreign language, performing arts, humor and more. There will even be a chance to win a book gift basket raffle. For the last few weeks Len Dummer and the folks at Knucklehead Craft Brewing they have been collecting food and toiletries for people in need.

Eight or nine years ago, when I was still working at Webster Thomas High School, a friend and colleague of mine, Kathy Dummer, shared some exciting news with me. She told me that her husband Len was hoping to take over the old Seitz’s grocery store/post office at the corner of Old Ridge and Bay roads in West Webster, and turn it into a brewpub. Murphy reached out to the brewery after hearing about Data Determines Dates, giving them his stamp of approval. He previously tried the brewery’s other offerings at The Governor’s Craft Beer Event at Drumthwacket last October. Dummer credited Webster Town Supervisor Ron Nesbit for his help and support. The brewery was able bounce ideas off him and he offered his coaching.

Co-founder George Cline decided to walk away amicably from the brewery last month, according to a Facebook post. So Dummer and his wife Kathy and two sons, Josh and Jake , bought out Cline’s share in the brewery. These are large ABV, barrel-aged beers, and there’s only a limited amount available, so get them while you can; they’ll be served first-come, first-served until they run out. While I’m here, let me tell you about a few other special events the Knuckleheads have planned in the coming weeks.

Knucklehead Hall of Fame IPA from Untied Brewing Company in New Providence. The beer, named for Gov. Phil Murphy’s catchphrase, is the brewery’s second beer to have a Murphy theme. Len Dummer said Knucklehead explored potentially installing a 15-barrel brewhouse, but ultimately decided on adding more and bigger fermenters to expand capacity. Jake Dummer will continue to operate the brewery’s 5-barrel system. Basically, the Dummers presented the plans to the town so they could move forward in the future without restrictions. Len Dummer said there is no timeline for completion.

I’m sorry to see another long-time business leaving the village, but I wish Tom the best in everything. That kind of enduring success can be attributed in large part to the loyal customer base Knucklehead has developed, and the kind of people we are here in Webster. So basically, if you haven’t cost to build a house in maine 2021 been to Knucklehead lately, you’re in for a big surprise. But remember, even if things a look a little different, you’re going to find the same great people, welcoming atmosphere and outstanding brews that you’ve come to expect. It’s been perhaps two months since I was last at Knucklehead.
