It’s an interesting study. When it comes to beer consumption in America, New Jersey is almost the least beer consuming state in the country. It’s true when it comes to beer, only two states, Connecticut and Utah, drink less than we do here in the Garden State.
The findings come from Point Com beer information and it looks like New Jersey is 48th in the union for beer consumption. The state with the highest beer consumption is surprisingly North Dakota. In North Dakota, residents consume 45.8 gallons per person per year. New Jersey consumes an average of 22.4 gallons per person per year.
According to Beer Info, “Overall beer consumption in the United States per adult 21 and older is approximately 28.2 gallons per person per year.” Thus, New Jersey is below the national average when it comes to beer consumption in America.
It seems like the “craft” beer industry is booming here in New Jersey. We now have some very good local breweries in Ocean and Monmouth counties and their products seem very popular with many intriguing and imaginative beer selections for us here on the Jersey Shore.
