LINCROFT — More than 85 local companies plan to participate in this year's Monmouth County Spring Job Fair, taking place on Wednesday, April 6 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Brookdale Community College's Robert J. Collins Arena.

"The Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners is pleased to partner with the Division of Workforce Development to provide this free opportunity for county residents to find a new job or pursue a new career," said Deputy Director Susan M. Kiley, liaison to the Division of Workforce Development.

Employers will be looking for hardworking, qualified applicants in a variety of fields including finance, education, computer science, telecommunications, and more.

With so many "help wanted" signs across the country, it's events like this that help connect employers with the right employee to fill job openings, according to Commissioner Director Thomas Arnone.

The Ultimate Guide to New Jersey Brewpubs

From the website that gave you the "Friendliest bars" and places to watch the game, comes the ultimate guide to New Jersey brewpubs.

So what's a "brew pub"?

According to Thompson Island's Article on the differences between a craft brewery, microbrewery, brewpub & gastropub, it says:
"A brewpub is a hybrid between a restaurant and a brewery. It sells at least 25% of its beer on-site in combination with significant food services. At a brewpub, the beer is primarily brewed for sale inside the restaurant or bar. Where it's legally allowed, brewpubs may sell beer to go or distribute it to some offsite destinations."

New Jersey has tons of Brewpubs, some of which have been around for years and some that have just opened in the past year.
