Opening Wednesday 10/28!


Our vision was a craft brewery. Our Alternate Ending said otherwise. We look forward to bringing you a friendly gathering space where you can drink a delicious beer, have an incredible meal, and watch one of your favorite movies.

Food by Talula's

We’re all about fermentation here at AE, so when we were looking for a restaurant partner, it was important that we find some like-minded fermentation freaks. We're thrilled to partner with Asbury Park’s own Talula's, who will offer a casual yet vibrant menu including sourdough SQUARE pizza pies, tacos, quality pub grub, seasonal salads, fun theater snacks and housemade desserts.

Living Local

We're especially excited about our location in Aberdeen, NJ. Locals will always remember the movie theater on Rt. 34, and we have rebuilt this space into a family-friendly neighborhood destination, while keeping some nostalgia of the theater.

Mixing Old with New

While it may not be a traditional movie theater, Alternate Ending will offer a nice break from your living room (when restrictions are lifted) but with the familiar comforts of home. Except here, you can get beer and food on demand! Our movie room will also be available to rent for private events.

 “I began home brewing in my backyard about six years ago as many do: with a kit. Fast forward 6 years later, I got a job washing kegs at Other Half Brewing Company in Brooklyn. This was a dream come true for me, like playing for the Yankees. Three weeks later, I was asked to be part of the brewing staff and I never looked back. I used to wait in line at 3am for their beer, and now I was helping make it.”
