Uncorked & Uncapped: Wine, Beer, and Food Festival for The Arc of Essex County

#HipNJ attended the 3rd annual Uncorked & Uncapped: Wine, Beer, and Food Festival for The Arc of Essex County at the Westminster Hotel in Livingston.

The Arc of Essex County provides comprehensive services and supports to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families ensuring a lifetime of achievement with dignity and full partnership in the community.

We got the opportunity to speak with some of the good-hearted vendors about how special it was to participate in such a worthy cause.

“All of our services are actually provided within the communities,” a spokesperson for The Arc of Essex County says. “There is a community engagement, community involvement, and certainly community support for all the individuals that we serve, as well as the communities in which they live and work.”

International Beer Day

By: Katy Kronberg

Grab your bottles and cans New Jersey, because today is International Beer Day! It is time for all you beer lovers to rejoice and celebrate your favorite beverage and #HipNJ is here to help!

Beer is one of the world’s oldest prepared beverages. The exact origin of beer is still debated, but some researches claim that beer goes back as early as 3000 BC in ancient Egypt. The beverage has evolved over thousands of years from fermented wheat to now its four main ingredients being barley, water, hops, and yeast. It is a seven-step process from start to finish; mashing, sparging, boiling and cooling the wart, fermentation, carbonation, and then packaging. All that is left to do is enjoy!

Hip New Jersey is celebrating the holiday by revealing 8 restaurants, bars, and pubs that offer the best craft and specialty beers in the state. So, cheers!
