What about right here in New Jersey? I stumbled across an article by Stacker that looked at the best beers around the nation, including right here in the Garden State. The article "The best beer from every state, according to consumers" named a recipe from Kane Brewing in Monmouth County as the best in New Jersey.

Kane Brewings' "Sunday Brunch" was named as best in Jersey in the article. "Hold the mimosa, there’s a new Sunday recovery beverage in town. And it’s aptly called Sunday Brunch. Fans say it’s “Sweet, creamy, and rich on the palate—not unlike egg nog.” But go easy on the refills; Kane Brewing’s creation clocks in at over 9% ABV."

Kane Brewing is located at 1750 Bloomsbury Ave, Ocean Township, NJ 07712.

Kane's "Sunday Brunch" is an "American Imperial Porter". The darker recipe (Alcohol By Volume ABV) is 9.2%.

Have you had "Sunday Brunch" from Kane Brewing in Ocean Township? If you have, give us your review and let us know what you thought. If not maybe you wanna put this recipe on your list to try.

As always drink responsibly and cheers to New Jersey's best brew.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
