Nanobrewery Gets OK to Open in Historically Dry South Jersey Town

A historically dry South Jersey town has given one nanobrewery the OK to open and operate.

Haddonfield has been a dry town by law since 1873, but it's made strides in the past few years to slowly shed that distinction during a time when consumer interest in craft beer and spirits continue to increase nationwide and locally.

In 2014, Haddonfield officials notably approved an initiative called the Alcohol Management Plan for Retail Outlets, in which restaurants were allowed to offer wine by leasing a portion of their business only to New Jersey-based wineries.

The South Jersey town continues the initiative through its Haddonfield Uncorked event, which began in 2014 and will take place this Saturday from 1-4 p.m.

The next move in becoming a little less dry came Tuesday with a 10-1 vote to allow nanobrewery King's Road Brewing Co. to establish operations in Haddonfield.
