Beer Pong, Screw The Dealer, Kings, Quarters.... am I bringing you back to your college days yet?

In case you didn't guess, I'm referring to some of the most popular drinking games that trigger some serious nostalgia for those of us who've been out of college for at least two years or more. For many, those were the glory days. Would we ever go back? Depending on how hard you partied, those answers may differ from person to person, hah!

Remember going to parties at your friend's school in another state and playing a drinking game you never heard of before? That's because the most popular drinking games differ from state to state.

For example, if you went to Stockton or Rowan Universities and you went away for a weekend to visit your friend at the University of Delaware, chances are their go-to drinking game wasn't the same one you played at all of your college basement parties.

A new survey brought about by studying Google Trends determined the most popular drinking game in each individual state. If you thought Jersey's most popular was beer pong, you're actually dead wrong.

Apparently, the most popular drinking game here in the Garden State is actually Quarters. Have you ever played it?

Not going to lie to you, here.... I've NEVER played it. During my college days, we played a lot of Flip Cup, Beer Pong, and Kings. Times have changed, though. I've been out of college for about 8 years now, so it's definitely possible the games we used to play are considered games the old heads played at this point.

The survey's only slightly suspicious to me, though. On the one hand, it says that the most popular drinking game in Delaware is Flip Cup. That, I totally believe. Still, on the flip side (no pun intended), they determined that PA's most popular game is Thunderstruck. To that I ask, what the heck is "Thunderstruck???" I've never even heard of that one....

Maybe, I'm an old head now, but if these are the findings of Google Trends, I guess I stand corrected.

You'll still find me playing Kings on a Friday night with friends, though.


Top 25 States That Drink The Most Beer

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.

The Ultimate Guide to New Jersey Brewpubs

From the website that gave you the "Friendliest bars" and places to watch the game, comes the ultimate guide to New Jersey brewpubs.

So what's a "brew pub"?

According to Thompson Island's Article on the differences between a craft brewery, microbrewery, brewpub & gastropub, it says:
"A brewpub is a hybrid between a restaurant and a brewery. It sells at least 25% of its beer on-site in combination with significant food services. At a brewpub, the beer is primarily brewed for sale inside the restaurant or bar. Where it's legally allowed, brewpubs may sell beer to go or distribute it to some offsite destinations."

New Jersey has tons of Brewpubs, some of which have been around for years and some that have just opened in the past year.

Here is a full list of the 21 brewpubs in New Jersey according to New Jersey Craft Beer:
