For those who sometimes prefer a liquid meal, the local Monmouth/Ocean area is exploding with options (with some decidedly better than others). It’s not just Kane and Carton anymore, but includes the following places that I’m aware of. There doubtless must be others in or around the area. Where have you been, which beers do you like, which places are good to relax with a pint or a tasting?
