Carton Brewing was founded in 2011 by cousins Augie Carton and Chris Carton. Wanting to "draw from the flavors and cultures of their native community", the cousins decided to open in the Jersey Shore town of Atlantic Highlands in a 5,000 sq ft red-brick historic warehouse.  In the spring of 2018, Carton moved the majority of its brewing operations into a newly constructed 10,000 sq ft facility, adjacent to original location. The original location continues to house the tasting room and retail store, as well as production of sour beer and saison in a 30-barrell Foeder.
Carton's core selection includes "Boat Beer" a session ale, "Brunch. Dinner. Grub. (B.D.G.)" a table ale, "077XX" an East Coast Double IPA, "Carton of Milk" a session nitro milk stout, and "This Town" a helles lager.
In 2018, Carton started its Brewers Board series. The Brewers Board label allows individual brewers on staff to develop recipes. The resulting beer is named after the brewer responsible for its creation, followed by a number denoting the round in the series (e.g. round one in the series consists of AUG 1 (Augie Carton), CHRIS 1 (Chris Carton), JER 1 (Jeremy Watts), BRETT 1 (Brett Crawford), RON 1 (Ron Angelo), and SAM 1 (Sam Kayata)).
Carton also frequently collaborates with other breweries. Collaborators include Other Half Brewing Company, Trillium Brewing Company, Barrier Brewing Co., Interboro Spirits & Ales, Green Flash Brewing Company, Alpine Beer Company, Industrial Arts Brewing Company, Cape May Brewing Company, Bolero Snort Brewery, Against The Grain Brewery, Burial Beer Co., and Magnify Brewing Company. In 2018, Carton launched the collaborative &telier (a combination of & and atelier) label. &telier is not necessarily a private brand and Carton encourages open-source usage of the term for collaboration between any breweries that would like to experiment outside the bounds of their typical style of brewing.
