      The Office in Cranford (and other spots around NJ) has a good beer list. They serve regular bar food, you can definitely get a decent burger.

        You can use the Beer Menus website to find Anchor Steam on draught (looks like the closest to Union in Skinners Loft in Jersey City currently).

        http://www.beermenus.com/

        Altho' I just checked a growler station's listings on that site for a store that I visited yesterday and the listed line-up looked nothing like what I saw even tho' it claimed "Updated: 01/06/2011" , so I'd call first before traveling.

        Alternately, you can TRY to contact the Union County distributor of Anchor products Kristen Distributing Co in Elizabeth (908) 354-1512 and ask them for a local bar they supply with kegs of Anchor Steam but many distributors are not particularly "consumer friendly" so don't expect satisfaction.

            The technical name of the Anchor holiday beer used to be "Our Special Ale" but even the brewery now calls it "Christmas Ale". http://www.anchorbrewing.com/beer/chr...

            It's quite a different beer than Anchor Steam Beer.
