If your in central Jersey you have to hit this one up. Front area of building has a c shaped bar that has over 100 taps. Some tables around bar. Rear is a sit down booth restaurant. Staff is friendly, service is good. They have tastings and rare beer days. During Xmas season 2016 they had a new winter beer on tap daily. Updated beer lists are a plus. Street parking can be crowded the lots are fairly close.
An Irish pub that is typical till you see over 100 taps with the most interesting and well curated selection I have seen in a while. Bar is big and nice with a decent amount of tables, but really no more exciting than any other Irish Pub. Service depends on the bartender, the one we started with was awesome the replacement less awesome. Geeks through and through. Huge and varied selection. Food was nice pub food. Prices are where this place hurts a bit, they are high and no small pours or paddles which suck for tickers. I would happily come back anytime and would recommend this place to anyone.
They’ve expanded to well over 100 taps. No filler. All craft or imports. At least 20 I have not seen in NJ before, some that were even new to the site. Some meads and ciders as well. They had seven different Carton beers on when I was there, remnants of a tap take over. Food was solid pub fare. Prices were a touch high, but not crazy for this type of establishment.
Only gripe is that they don’t do flights anymore because of the sheer number of different priced taps. However, they will let you sample some beers, so I was able to try a few when I was there. Overall, a must visit if you are in the area.
Went for a few beers for my buddy birthday. Place was very nice. Over 100 beers on tap. Great selection, although a little pricy. However bartenders and owner were very nice, and allowed you to sample something before purchasing. I would definitely revisit Maloney’s.

Love this place. If you are within 50 miles, you need to stop.
One of the best tap systems going in the state, if not THE best. Selection of craft beers, imported and domestic, is amazing. They care about beer here and it shows.
Always feel free to ask for a sample of something you are not sure of. They like to educate people about the different beers they choose to put on tap. Just great.

by far the best beer bar in the area. service is great at the bar but can be shoddy if you sit in the dining room. selection for this part of nj is peerless, and most of the bartenders seem to know the product. food is always awesome pub-style food. can be a bit greasy or salty at times, but it’s tasty and cheap.
This place has a lot of potential. The staff is so much better then when they opened a few years ago. The draft selection is great for the area. Prices seem a bit high. Never crowded which is sad. I honestlty don’t know how they stay in business. Something is missing but I can’t put my finger on it. I’m hoping it hits it ’s stride since Matawan needs a good place.
I went to Maloney’s for the Port/ Lost Abbey stuff they had on draft. There is a very large bar with 50-75 taps with 80% of them having a handle on top of the tap. The tap list blew my mind to see how many different offerings they had. Lots of good beers but nothing you can’t find at a good liquor store. Though They do give the option to sample stuff. The tap lines seemed to be clean. Although I would’ve liked my racer 5 to be fresher. It was kind of muted. I went there at lunch time and there were only 4 other people there. I ordered pomme frites but sent them back because they were logged in grease. So i’ll make adjustments when I get some more food from them. Overall I would definitely return to have some more pints.
