A few Jersey Boys on a journey to start their own brewery in Jersey City.

Starting with a 3 gallon pot and a home brewing kit, the idea of 902 Brewing Company fermented into a business in August of 2012.   Originally brew-stablished in Hoboken, NJ, 902 pays tribute to the apartment where they took it to the next level.  

From that tiny apartment, 902 has gypsy brewed their way to a much larger warehouse in Jersey City, with a full build out in process.  Follow the journey on our twitter!

The Team


Colby Janisch, COO

Colby got into brewing around Christmas time of 2007. He received a 'Mr Beer' Homebrew kit as a present and was hooked right away. As a mechanical engineer, he quickly spiraled out of control with new equipment mods, process improvement, and experimenting. Here at 902 he continues that daily! Colby is a huge Giants fan, Delaware alumni, and proud dad.



Don Vogt, CFO

Don brings 15+ years of finance and accounting experience to 902. In addition to overseeing sales, you'll find him at events pouring beers. Don is a WVU Mountaineer and a huge Giants fan.



John "Ham" Russo, Sales and Events Manager

John “Ham” Russo, who has been with the company for a few years, switched roles to a full time Sales and Events Manager. When he’s not out on the rugby field moving scrums, you’ll see him all over the place moving delicious liquid!
