Three 3's Brewing Company 50 13th Street Hammonton, NJ 08037
Review Date: 04/07/18
Reported by: Pretzel
The Stoutmeister and I decided to take advantage of a family dinner in Hammonton to visit a few breweries, do a brewery review, and get some stamps in our Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival Passport. For those who are not familiar with the passport, if you signed up for the passport at the AC beerfest, you receive a NJ brewery passport which lists 47 New Jersey Breweries. You visit each one, have them stamp your passport, and receive a free piece of brewery glassware. If you get your passport completely stamped, and mail it in by March 2nd of next year, you get a free ticket to the 2019 Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival (consistently voted the 2nd best beerfest in the US). Gotta confess, The Stoutmeister and I are now obsessed with getting our passport filled. After our Hammonton lunch, we decided to visit Tomfoolery, Three 3’s, Vinyl, and Atco. It also gave us the opportunity to review Three 3’s, so we could kill 2 birds (or 4 breweries) with one stone.
The facility is well-lit, has a standard size bar with seating, several big sturdy tables great for sharing and meeting new people, hard metal seats with no backs, and an area with a large sofa for those of us needing more comfortable accommodations. It was very noisy with less than half the seats occupied. It was very difficult to strike up a decent conversation with those around you. We had some great interaction with several patrons (Terri, Randy, Roxanne, and Chuck) regarding South Jersey breweries or maybe it was South Jersey blueberries. Like I said, the acoustics left a lot to be desired.
There were 12 beers on tap, heavy on the IPA’s with ABV’s ranging from 5.5 to 8.1. I’d like to see a wider variety of offerings, but the beers were cold and tasty. The flights held 3, 6 oz tasters. Since we were hitting 4 breweries, we had to pace ourselves and could not taste every brew. We were not disappointed in any of the beers we tried. With every sample I tried, I kept changing my favorite beer of the day. I could have easily said my favorite beer of the day, was “the current one”.
We took a tour of the brewing room with Nick who was friendly, informative, and quite receptive to all our questions. (Hey, we are semi-professional after all!) Their leftover mash is given to area farmers to feed the farm animals, and they also make dog biscuits from this refuse as well. We found out the name Three 3’s refers to their original address 333 N. Washington St.
We enjoyed our afternoon at Three 3’s (and we got our passport stamped and a free glass)! After our review we enjoyed quick pints at Tomfoolery, Vinyl, and Atco Brewing. So far on the passport we have 14 done, only 33 more breweries to go.
