New Jersey Beer Festivals

New Jersey beer festivals play host to well over 100 major breweries and micro breweries

NJ has made a mark in the beer brewing history of the United States. During the late 19th century, New Jersey was considered to be the nations hub of breweries and was home to some of the largest breweries in the United States.

With a large German immigrant population, there were many brew masters and owners who preserved the style of beer from their homelands. During the 1880s, there were no less than six breweries in Newark, NJ alone.

In 1935, the G. Krueger Brewing Company of Newark, New Jersey became the first brewer to market beer in steel cans. In that year, only about 25 percent of beer was packaged in bottles and cans -- the rest was kegged. Today, however, about 90 percent of America's beer production is consumed from bottles and cans.




Note: Sometimes conditions require cancellations or changes of dates, times and location which are not reflected in the original schedule. Before planning a trip to visit one of the listed events, it is suggested that you call the event sponsor to confirm the event schedule or for additional information on the event.
