I had my craft beer awakening in 2006, smack dab in the middle of a 2-year stint of living in Hoboken. While it can get a bit rowdy on weekend nights, Hoboken is still a great town. But when I was there, save for a store or 2 and basically only 1 bar, craft beer was almost nowhere to be seen. Thankfully, that is no longer the case.
If you take the Path train to get to Hoboken, Texas Arizona is literally the first thing you see when you get there. Located directly opposite of the Path train entrance, Texas Arizona was a bar I frequented once or twice, mostly unimpressed with the varieties of fizzy yellow beer they stocked. Today the spot is a beacon for craft beer fans with a whole slew of great suds to enjoy.

TXAZ has also had a few great events as well, including a Dogfish Head Night this past week and a highly successful New Jersey Brewer's Appreciation Night including draught pours from NJ Beer Co., Flying Fish, Ramstein, Cricket Hill, Kane and Carton.

On top of all of that, they are a part of the New Jersey Craft Beer Membership Club where if you're a member you can save 10% on your entire bill. Full disclosure: I help out the NJCB team as a Regional Rep, but believe me that both Texas Arizona and the New Jersey Craft Beer Membership are well worth checking out.
