Craft Brewer has opened doors in Central Jersey’s newest high-profile redevelopment Pierson Commercial’s Krauss arranges Birdsmouth Brewery lease at The Commissary


“Birdsmouth Beer shares our vision for the future of Fort Monmouth and we look forward to celebrating their success.” Birdsmouth Beer, which is focusing their production on lager beers is marketing their product line to retailers and restaurants and bars. “I have to admit,” Krauss added, “the initial research into the design elements of a brewery was one of the most enlightening workdays ever. I got to tour brewery opera - tions and sip a pale ale while making notes on tenant fit-out specifications.” MAREJ

CEANPORT, NJ — Pierson Commer- cial , a market-leading

New Jersey-based commer - cial real estate retail broker - age services provider, has an - nounced that its brewery client Birdsmouth Beer officially opened its doors to the public on October 15th. Located at 675 Oceanport Way in Oceanport, the craft-lager company oc - cupies a section of the former Fort Monmouth military base known as The Commissary, which is part of a 53,000 s/f multipurpose food-and-bever - age destination. Pierson director Gary Krauss negotiated the 12,080 s/f lease on behalf of Birdsmouth Beer while Su- zanne Macknow of CBRE represented the landlord, Denholtz Properties . “The genesis of the deal was one of those ‘right place, right time’ moments,” said Krauss. “We were in CEO Steven Denholtz’s office when he expressed a high level of inter - est in bringing in a brewery. Fortunately, I was able to share that I knew just the right guys to make that happen.” According to Krauss, master brewer Andy Gioia and partner Rocco Laginestra had been searching for the right location for their beer production facility and tasting-room startup. “They had been looking for the most-suitable spot within the Jersey Shore submarket, where they could achieve that local feel and be in close and easy proximity to the major ar - teries of distribution through - out the state,” Krauss added. “The Commissary checked all of their boxes as an exciting new development in an up- and-coming part of affluent Monmouth County. It is close to the beach and offers almost- immediate connectivity to the Garden State Pkwy. as well as Rtes. 18, 35 and 36.” The Fort Monmouth property dates back to 1917 when it was developed by the U.S. Army Signal Corps. In its heyday, the facility was home to numerous innovations, including the first radar system to bounce signals off the moon. “Our goal at Fort Monmouth is to create a hub where busi - nesses of all types can thrive and power the resurgence of this important piece of New Jersey’s history,” said Kris- tine Hurlbut , senior VP of leasing at Denholtz Properties.
