You'll likely be getting a new E-ZPass transponder this year as they reach the end of their lifespan.

NJ E-ZPass, which issues the transponders for seven agencies with toll roads in New Jersey, said they will eventually just stop working as the batteries run out of power.

Nearly a million E-ZPass customers with active accounts that have been used in the past year will receive a transponder replacement kit in the mail between now and the end of the year. It includes a brand new transponder and a postage-paid envelope to return the old one.

How much does a replacement transponder cost?

The New Jersey Turnpike Authority Commissioners, which oversees NJ E-ZPass, approved the replacement by Conduent State & Local Solutions at a cost of $8.4 million. Each replacement costs $8.75.

Agencies whose E-ZPass customers are maintained by NJ E-ZPass include the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, Burlington County Bridge Commission, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission, the South Jersey Transportation Authority, the Delaware River Port Authority and the Cape May Bridge Commission.

The Ultimate Guide to New Jersey Brewpubs

From the website that gave you the "Friendliest bars" and places to watch the game, comes the ultimate guide to New Jersey brewpubs.

So what's a "brew pub"?

According to Thompson Island's Article on the differences between a craft brewery, microbrewery, brewpub & gastropub, it says:
"A brewpub is a hybrid between a restaurant and a brewery. It sells at least 25% of its beer on-site in combination with significant food services. At a brewpub, the beer is primarily brewed for sale inside the restaurant or bar. Where it's legally allowed, brewpubs may sell beer to go or distribute it to some offsite destinations."

New Jersey has tons of Brewpubs, some of which have been around for years and some that have just opened in the past year.
