Best NJ Beer Festivals and Events
New Jersey beer festivals play host to a well over 50 major breweries
and micro breweries with many brew masters and staff available to

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
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.
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.
