Twin Elephant Brewing Company Coming to Chatham



Get ready to get your drink on! The up and coming micro-brewer Twin Elephant Brewing Company has leased a former industrial space at 13 Watchung Avenue in Chatham. NAI James E. Hanson, a New Jersey-baed commercial real estate firm in Fairfield, announced Tuesday that it has facilitated the lease of the 3,500 square foot spave to Twin Elephant Brewing Co. The owners of the brewery, Scott McLuskey, Cynthia Derama, and Ti Besecker expect to host a Grand Opening this fall.

“In addition to necessary physical features, such as ample floor space, high ceilings and a loading/unloading area, our client wanted to locate in a spot where it could draw visitors,” Ryan said.

With place as much of a priority as space, Twin Elephant Brewing Company has selected new headquarters that are advantageously located less than one mile from Route 24 and about two miles from Interstate 78.

“This is one of Morris County’s first micro-breweries and Chatham and its neighboring towns of Madison, Summit, New Providence, Short Hills and Millburn all present demographic profiles that are ideal for an artisanal brewery, and we presented this location as one that will enable Twin Elephant Brewing Company to serve the nearby population.”

In addition, Ryan said, “the tap room will be open to the public for tours and tastings Friday 5-10 p.m., Saturday 12-9 p.m. and Sunday 12-5 p.m.”

The Next Stage Ensemble was made to support the work of young actors and train them in ensemble-based performance skills.

For its twelfth year in a row, Maplewoodstock Music and Arts Festival- the premier music festival in the region- is to Saturday (tomorrow!) July 11, and Sunday, July 12, from noon until 10:00 pm both days. The fest is free, with live music galore, as well as an art event in Memorial Park (160 Dunnell Rd, directly opposite New Jersey Transit’s Maplewood train station).

Our stage has hosted artists like Marshall Crenshaw, Raul Malo, Joan Osborne, Norah Jones’ Puss N Boots, Robert Randolph and The Family Band, and The Smithereens – enjoyed by upwards of 5,000 attendees each day. In addition to the music, there will be local arts and craft vendors, food of all sorts, a beer garden, and a large KidZone with games, inflatable rides, crafts, and more.

“Our goal is to provide a family-friendly event: the best possible free experience of music and art – by and for the community,” says Maplewoodstock Chairperson Drew Dix. “Maplewoodstock is a Maplewood tradition of families, friends, and neighbors bringing out blankets, lawn chairs, and picnic baskets for a fantastic weekend of music, art, food, and the best of the Maplewood community.”

Saturday’s musical headliners will be the internationally renowned reggae group The Wailers. Sunday will close with the grand finale performance of the headlining band Rusted Root, who play acoustic, rock, and world music. The Sunday show will also feature Tex-Mex artist Alejandro Escovedo. The entire lineup for the festival consists of 24 bands, many of whom come from the thriving Maplewood and South Orange music scene.

A full line-up of band bios can be found on the website.

Chatham Ranked #3 Best Suburb to Raise a Family in New Jersey

Father & Son

In a recent study by the website, Chatham Borough was ranked as the #3 Best Suburb to Raise a Family in New Jersey. It was also the top rated suburban town in Morris County. rated the communities based on a variety of criteria, including age demographics, school ratings, crime rates, and access to affordable housing, child care, libraries, and grocery stores. High ranks indicate that a town attracts young families who are looking for good schools and a safe environment in which to raise children.

Many factors contributed to Chatham’s high ranking on Niche’s list. The borough is just a short train ride to New York City and the surrounding New Jersey metropolitan area, making it an ideal home for commuters. But excellent transportation to other destinations doesn’t take away from Chatham’s own special appeal as a quaint, entertaining town for citizens of all ages. Downtown is bustling with small businesses for parents and their kids. Walk down the main street to find a knitting store, a jewelers, independent pharmacy, clothing stores, cleaners, a toy store, a sports store, multiple restaurants and a specialty bakery, just to list a few. One Chatham resident on the website said, “I can get everything I need within 5 minutes of my house.”

Chatham received such high rankings on Niche’s list because of its high home values (the average home cost being $705,800), very high rent costs, and low unemployment rates. Its citizens are generally highly educated, with 42% of residents earning a bachelor’s degree and 33% receiving a master’s degree or higher. Citizens also receive high income, with the median household income at $146,083.


Zita’s Ice Cream and Italian Ice Celebrates 15 Year Anniversary

Ice Cream (1)

It’s summer, which means, it’s ice cream season! And what better way to celebrate than to take a trip to the New Providence’s own Zita’s Ice Cream and Italian Ice! This small, unassuming ice cream shop opened its doors to the neighborhood 15 years ago. Back then Zita’s offered just a few flavors and was lucky if it sold six ice cream cakes in a weekend. Today, the business is thriving, churning out dozens of new flavors and selling 80 ice cream cakes on a normal weekend.

To founder and owner Peter Elefante, ice cream is not just a job—it’s a passion.

“Even though Zita’s is now 15 years old, I’m only at the beginning…I want Zita’s to be one of those places that’s around for 50 years, where people who have moved away have to stop by to get their ice cream fix whenever they are nearby,” Elefante said.

What sets Zita’s apart from the hoard of ice cream shops in New Jersey is its owner’s passion for the product, which extends to its production. All of Zita’s ice cream is made on the premises, in the small back kitchen. This ice cream is homemade in the truest sense. “And we only use the highest quality of ingredients,” says Elefante, “from fresh bananas in our Kong ice cream to fresh strawberries in our Strawberry.”

Elefante plans to do more wholesale to restaurants, hotels, and other ice cream stores. To meet this demand, Zita’s will have to produce more ice cream, which means they will need more space to make it. Soon, the little shop will undergo a renovation of the back kitchen, to create more room for freezers and production facilities.

For many years, the shop has participated in New Jersey’s Ice Cream Festival, winning first place for its smores flavor in 2010. Zita’s switches its flavors seasonally – some current options are peach, key lime pie, and chocolate covered strawberry. After a ten year hiatus, the very popular Devil Dog has also returned to the menu. Some new flavors include Ice Cream Cake (the Zita’s ice cream cake as a ice cream flavor); Cookie Monster (vanilla ice cream with Nutter Butters, Ores, and chocolate chip cookies); and the Dirty Turtle (caramel turtles, vanilla ice cream, cake crunch, and fudge).

A New Providence native, Elefante is excited that have built a booming business in his hometown. “We pride ourselves in giving back to the community which has given so much to us,” Elefante said.
