Grab your bottles and cans New Jersey, because today is International Beer Day! It is time for all you beer lovers to rejoice and celebrate your favorite beverage and #HipNJ is here to help!
Beer is one of the world’s oldest prepared beverages. The exact origin of beer is still debated, but some researches claim that beer goes back as early as 3000 BC in ancient Egypt. The beverage has evolved over thousands of years from fermented wheat to now its four main ingredients being barley, water, hops, and yeast. It is a seven-step process from start to finish; mashing, sparging, boiling and cooling the wart, fermentation, carbonation, and then packaging. All that is left to do is enjoy!
Hip New Jersey is celebrating the holiday by revealing 8 restaurants, bars, and pubs that offer the best craft and specialty beers in the state. So, cheers!
