Folded: Postseason 1975

Stadium: St. Joseph’s Field

Team Colors:


ASL Championships: None


Lower division American pro soccer club that operated for four seasons during the early 1970’s. Little information survives about this club into the digital age. Newspaper accounts of the era suggest that the Brewers played out of Newark, but the 1974 Brewers program we were able to dig up (above right) suggest the club played at least some of their matches in Toms River on the Jersey Shore.

The Brewers were sponsored by Schaefer Brewing Company and known as the New Jersey Schaefer Brewers during their inaugural season in 1972. From 1973 until 1975 they went by the shorter “Brewers” moniker. The team folded following the 1975 season. The ASL replaced the Brewers with the New Jersey Americans franchise for the 1976 season.
