Did you know April 7th is National Beer Day?  Neither did we!   To celebrate, we're sharing Stacker's list of the Top 20 Beers in New Jersey, which includes Clifton's Ghost Hawk Brewing's Ravendark.   Ghost Hawk Brewing Co. is Passaic County's first craft brewery. 

The last decade has seen an explosion of breweries that operate on a smaller scale and offer a wider, and sometimes more experimental, selection of beer. While craft beer often has a higher price tag than your average domestic beer, consumers are clearly willing to pay more: In 2020, craft beer accounted for almost a quarter of the U.S. retail beer market.  

In a world where just a small number of massive companies dominate the beer market, sipping on a brew created close to home can be all the more satisfying.

Stacker compiled a list of the breweries with the Top 100 ranked beers in New Jersey using data from BeerAdvocate. Any ties were broken by the highest-ranking beer.  Continue reading to find out which New Jersey breweries have the tastiest offerings.
