Barbers by day brewers by night, Adam and Gabor have been turning out short batches of hand crafted brews for locals in Morris and Sussex county for a little over a year now and are truly perfecting their craft. A few weeks ago they invited me out to their private tasting at NJ Bar and Grill West and to sample their latest version of their Red Ale.

Adam and Gabor's grandfather Sandor established Alex's Barbershop in 1961 and still remains in its same location 50 years later.  Adam and Gabor decided they wanted to do something special for their clients to commemorate the shops 50th anniversary. After conducting an in house survey of their clients, they found that 90+ percent of there clients are avid beer drinkers, with a 50/50 split between craft beer drinkers and corporate beer drinkers. With their extensive backgrounds prior to taking over the family barbershop and their love for great beers,  they started crafting recipes for their clients. Within this time their clients have tested various recipes from a Hungarian Pilsner, 3 versions of Red Ale, Belgian Tripel Unfiltered, and 2 versions of White Ale, and many more to come.

From Adam's notes; This beer pours a silky tan head, the blend of specialty malts give this beer a roasted caramel flavor with notes of sweetness. The hops give off a piney, floral and citrus scent which is not overwhelming and really balance out the beer. I found it to be a smooth drinking beer, medium mouthfeel, lightly carbonated with a pleasant dry finish. I had their first version of their red ale months back and I must say the new version is a big step up. Great job guys!
