ASBURY PARK - A brewery in Asbury Park opened its doors to the public for the first time.

Crowds packed Dark City Brewery Saturday, located on Second Street and Main Street.

Owner Kevin Sharpe, 28, says he's been micro-brewing for years. After some encouragement and compliments on his brewing skills, he decided to turn his dream into a reality.

"It feels awesome to be a cornerstone of this neighborhood. Asbury Park downtown is great," says Sharpe "It's exciting to be over here."
