Departed Soles Brewing Company

Whether you stop by to pick up a six pack or for a tasting in the belly of the microbrewery, we’re sure you’ll end up at Departed Soles Brewing Company before long. A mere two blocks from 90 Columbus, the location is unbeatable for beer-loving residents of our no-fee apartments Jersey City. Below is a quick guide to the ales and activities at this neighborhood brewery near our Jersey City apartments.


It goes without saying that beer is the main event at Departed Soles Brewing Company. This joint is all about beer, both traditional and gluten-free.

They have a number of brews that are always available, as well as a rotating selection of seasonal and other small-batch creations. As far as the permanent selection goes, the Philoso-Rapper is a popular choice. This Belgian ale hybrid is light and sweet, with hints of esters and spices. Modern Cup of Sole is another favorite, brewed in collaboration with ModCup Coffee. This stout-like beer is light, dry, and more accessible than a traditional stout, thanks to the familiar coffee flavor. Departed Soles has a rotational series of IPAs that change depending on the season and ingredients.

Seasonals include the Playoff Beered, specifically brewed for the New Jersey Devils during hockey season, a Christmas Spice Ale, and the Halloween-inspired Ghost of Pumpkins Passed (which happens to be gluten-free!). Stop in from Jersey City apartments which are just minutes away.
