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 10 BBL brewery has the capacity to brew 1000 barrels/year. Pretty good for a town that’s been dry for over 200 years.
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.
