Continuing along the journey in Jersey City, my second stop was the famous Barcade. Originally opened in Brooklyn, with a passion for classic arcade games and American craft beer came great success, and it was decided that they would open two more locations. Residents of New Jersey are lucky enough to have one of the new locations in the bustling urban setting of Jersey City, while the beer drinkers in and around Philly received the second.

It's really cool to see that some of these are still around and that the guys at Barcade are putting them to good use, joining old school gamers with old friends.

Barcade has 24 rotating taps and one cask on at all times. I'm sorry but you won't be finding any bottled beers or imported offerings - just good American craft beer from some of the best breweries around, both local and far.

About twice a month Barcade hosts a brewery night; I had the pleasure of attending last week's Victory event and can't wait for another. Those in the area this weekend should drop by and check out this Sixpoint event which will be going on at all the Barcade locations.

In the mean time, keep up to date with them on their website. They are constantly revising their draft list and promoting their upcoming events.
