Ghost Hawk Brewing Company is a collaborative effort between two Clifton natives, Tom Rachelski and Steve Bauer. Born from a passion for delicious beer, and escaping the mundane routines of everyday life, this project has been in the planning stages behind the scenes for quite some time. With the addition of veteran brewmaster Chris Sheehan, this venture is only a short time away from coming to life. We have secured a killer location in our hometown of Clifton, NJ, and we are ready to quench your thirst with a dynamite selection of hand-crafted ales, lagers, stouts and more.
The name Ghost Hawk is a dedication to the fallen brother and friend of the brewery owners. The long story can be read here: https://www.ghosthawkbrewing.com/about-us/
We are located at 321 River Road in Clifton, NJ. We are occupying a 3500+ sq ft space in Unit #6. Our next door neighbor, caddy-corner in Unit #5, is Silk City Distillers - Clifton's first locally-sourced, sustainable, craft distillery. Directly across the street, is Rutt's Hut, recently voted best hot dog in the nation for the second year in a row by The Daily Meal. These three entities in such a close proximity will create a very unique destination in New Jersey.
As with any venture, you must plan for the unexpected. That being said, if we hit no major delays, we are projecting to be open sometime this fall, between mid-October and early-November.
