BEER!  Who doesn’t like BEER?  Actually, I do know plenty of people who do not like beer.  I used to be one of them.  Well, I don’t like tequila much anymore either, for the same reason.  But those are stories for another day.  Fortunately for me, I have my taste for beer again.  It’s been back for quite some time.  I’m glad I do enjoy beer again.  The craft beer business is booming!  I love to try a new brew now and again.  Still too many IPA’s

Locally, there are some really great breweries at the Jersey Shore.  Here are some of the favorites you listed on the 105.7 The Hawk Facebook page.

Then VINEPAIR, took that data and determined which state drinks the most beer by measuring the gallons of ethanol from beer consumed per capita.  VINEPAIR, describe itself as...

“the largest digital media company delivering accessible, entertaining, and inspiring content about drinks and the experiences you have with a glass in hand.”

The facts revealed themselves.

If we focus on the total gallons of beer consumed, the data ranks New Jersey at #14 of the 50 states.  California is on top.  Wyoming is at the bottom.  It must be noted that The District of Columbia shows up in this study at #49.
