One step closer for the ‘Bradley Brew Project’

BRADLEY BEACH — A microbrewery on Main Street is one step closer to opening after receiving approval of its site plan and outdoor signage from the borough’s Zoning Board of Adjustment on July 20. The site plan for the Bradley Brew Project includes an aged brick facade on the outside of the business, with its name painted above an industrial garage door, and the brewery logo above the front entrance. As an addition, the building will have two bike racks in the back for public use. All that remains for the microbrewery to open up shop at 714 Main St. is the execution of the site plan, and proper licensing from the state, and federal governments. The owners of Bradley Brew Project are husband and wife, Michal Ziolkowski, and Chelsey De Marino-Ziolkowski, of Wall Township. Plans so far include eight total flagships. These are beers that will always be available, as opposed to seasonal beers. Two of these are going to be lagers, and the other six will be ales. There will be other brews and some that will be available seasonally. There will be eight taps at the bar inside the brewery. The couple developed the name while thinking of a way to tie the brewery in to the community, and trying to separate themselves from “breweries, and brew houses.” According to Mr. Ziolkowski, “We wanted to fit the idea that we are trying to be creative and do something new.”
