Mount Laurel is a great New Jersey town. It's not far from where I grew up in Cherry Hill. It's exciting to be able to get close to my old home on the trail as we spread the Common Sense message.

After a long and productive day, we joined an outstanding group of small business owners, elected officials, and local Republicans at a great brewery right off Route 73.

Bout The Hops Brewing is a relatively new business launched in 2019. That's right, owner Kevin had to figure out a way to keep the doors open and the beer flowing through Murphy's ill-advised and destructive lockdowns. And he did.

If you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere and an outstanding selection of local beer, stop by Bout the Hops.

I knew Kevin and I were going to get along well when I saw his business card. He's listed as "Owner and Chief Common Sense Officer".

Thanks to Kevin for hosting everyone and giving me a tour of the facility.

Our Common Sense movement is building the party from the ground up, supporting small businesses, and taking our state back town by town!
