NJ has made a
mark in the beer brewing history of the United States. During the late

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.
