Devil’s Creek Brewery is Collingswood, NJ’s first brewery! Located on the town’s main street at Powell Lane and Haddon Avenue in a retail storefront space, this 7 BBL brewery with 10 BBL fermenters has the capacity to brew 1000 barrels/year. Pretty good for a town that’s been dry for over 200 years. Thanks to Mayor Jim Maley and the Borough of Collingswood, an ordinance was passed allowing for the opening of this now historic brewery!
Owners Anthony and Kathy Abate (along with many old and new friends) pride themselves in building a lot of the brewery themselves. From constructing the brewhouse to putting up the reclaimed wood wall, they worked tirelessly over the better part of a year getting everything ready for their grand opening in May 2016. The result is a 900-square-foot tasting room with unique light fixtures, a corrugated metal bar, a pallet-wood wall adorned with their rendition of the Jersey Devil (their namesake) and many other rustic and vintage features.
Their tasting room also includes a 19-foot bar, made from reclaimed wood from a Pennsylvania church that was built in the 1800s, was created with the help of woodworker Bruce Faulseit and The Factory in Collingswood.
