These days, beers come in countless variations. From alcohol level to the color of the brew, there’s a beer type for everyone. World Population Review recently published a report that details what the most popular beer in New Jersey is.

New Jersey has many homegrown craft breweries. In fact, New Jersey Craft Beer reports there are 143 breweries in the state, with 21 Brew Pubs.  Still, with all the hop creativity in the Garden State, New Jersey’s beer brand choice was a household name.

Miller Lite

“Tastes great, less filling” is the beer king of New Jersey. There’s nothing wrong with consistency and being comfortable with a traditional flavor you can count on. Miller Lite has been popular in the market since it was introduced in 1975. It contains 4.2% alcohol by volume and only 96 calories per 12 ounces.  They have classic branding with a logo and label that is recognizable all around the world. Though they do not have a main brewery in New Jersey, they do have major distributors and wholesale partners all over the state. Furthermore, Miller beer is widely associated with Miller Valley in  Milwaukee, Wisconsin where it was founded. Hence, the name the Milwaukee Brewers.

It was a wide gap between Budweiser, claiming 23 states where their beer was the most popular, and the second place brew. Five states were aligned to Bud Light as their choice beverage. Miller Lite was third, claiming Indiana and New Jersey.

As we head towards Memorial Day weekend and the outdoor concert season, it’s very likely you will see plenty of the most popular beer in New Jersey on tap.
