Hitting two breweries with one stone

What I Wore: glasses- Rivet & Sway, lips- Jordana "Matte Tease", earrings- Aldo {outlet}, necklaces & ring- RocksBox, dress- Cotton On, flats- Calvin Klein via Burlington Coat Factory, bag- Eddie Borgo for Target

Overall I enjoyed my first RocksBox experience, I will try it again in a few months,
I didn't end up purchasing any items from my box, 
but I did like them layered all together! 

We traveled up Route 1 to check out the newly opened Cypress Brewing Co in Edison, NJ,
this brewery is on our original "Breweries in Planning" list,
 so I was excited it was open to check it out!

We went with two flights to get to try all the beers on the list,
My favorite was the Rye Saison and the Northern English Nut Brown

I loved these little beer mugs in the flights!
So cute!

I enjoyed Cypress Brewing!

On our way home we planned to check out HearthStone Grill,
online the pizza looks amazing from a brick oven and it is a brewery!

They only had 3 home brews on the beer list,
none of them were very good, weird flavors, and only 3.5%
The brick oven pizza?
Oven was in the dining room and not on,
overall it was just not good.
I am not sure how they got to be on the craft breweries list in NJ...

I guess there had to be some misses on this list,
Happy this was a two for one night because if we had made the trip just for this,
it would have been even more disappointing.
