BELMAR - Freedman's Bakery in Belmar will be closing its doors to make way for a microbrewery.

The building at the corner of 8th Avenue and Main Street is under contract by East Coast Beer Company.

The company says it will be a brewery operation with a small storefront selling four of its Jersey Shore themed beers.

Loyal customers of Freedman's tell us it's sad to see an end of an era. "It's been here for so many years," says Kristen Rivera. "It's a part of Belmar!"

Freedman's Bakery has been in business for more than 60 years. It was temporarily shut down by the Monmouth County Health Department three years ago after a rodent infestation was discovered.
