Remember Mickey G’s Micro Pub?

Does anyone remember Mickey G’s Micro Pub in Hoboken?

I think this place at 411 Jefferson Street called Mickey G’s Micro Pub was actually open when I moved to town – but we never stopped in!

Micro-brewed beer pubs were popular for a brief stint in the 90’s (sort of like grunge clothing), even Maxwell’s used have their own brewery!

Does anyone remember what it was like and exactly when it was open? Or have any photos?

    I highly doubt this was a brew pub in the traditional sense(not enough space from equipment etc). Brew pubs are still very popular, with small batch brewers(that don’t get bought by InBev or MillerCoors) gain market share every year. I don’t think NJ even allowed micro breweries until a about ten years ago.

      For about 45 seconds in 1995 or so Maxwells was a brewpub. There was even a small micro brewery in the old Maxwell factory building around the same time, [quote comment=”215445″]I highly doubt this was a brew pub in the traditional sense(not enough space from equipment etc).

      2 different places, 411, Hoboken brewing co. made Mile Square
      golden ale and it was EXCELLENT. sold in bottles around town. sorry to see them go.
      Maxwell’s on the other hand, BREWED their own beer. the brew-kegs were in the window facing washington in that little lounge area. That beer was AWEFUL. Myself and a buddy went there for 2 beers each, next morning i had a terrible headache like I drank a case of beer. problem was probably bacteria in the lines(which is why I only drink bottled beer).[quote comment=”215452″]Here’s a pic of what the exterior of the brewery at the now Maxwell Place condo complex looked like back in the 90′s:[/quote]
