This place just open on July 4th, and is a great new addition in Hoboken. Pier 13 may be semi-temporary in that they plan to only have it exist in the summers, but it is a great place to grab a beer when the weather is nice. As far as beer, they pretty much only have craft beer (draft, cans, and bottles/bombers are available). Their cheap beer is cans of PBR, which I am always in favor of as well. It’s only a pier, so the place isn’t huge, and gets a little crowded on weekend days (at least so far), but they have a pretty good set-up with an area of picnic tables and a grassy area with some beach chairs as well. The negatives would be the crowds (lines for beer and bathrooms are common) and the prices aren’t great ($8 drafts, cans and bottles range), but this place is certainly well worth a visit.
I forgot to mention the food in my initial review: They don’t actually have any food, so I can’t give them a score there, but they do have an area for local food trucks (Taco Truck, Luke’s Lobster, Philly’s Cheese Steaks, etc) to park that usually has 1 or more parked out there. (Their Facebook page sometimes shows the day’s food truck schedule).
