If you had to describe New Jersey in three words what would they be? This came from old reddit and it's the top three google searches for "Why is a (state name) so (blank)?

I posed this question to my New Jersey 101.5 nighttime audience as well as my Facebook page. We complied a list of some of the answers I received.

First off, If I were asked to name three words to describe New Jersey, my first word would be "delicious" because my thoughts often turn to food and where better to eat than in New Jersey? We have the best pizza, the best steakhouses, the best Italian restaurants, best bars, and best coffee among so many other things.

My second word to describe New Jersey would be "beautiful." We have the best sites from the beaches to the mountains, the most attractive people who can spot BS in a moment's notice and also have the "attitude" to deal with it. I considered using attitude as a word but I had a better one in mind.

My third word would be "opportunity." In New Jersey, you can be anything you want and have the opportunity to pursue whatever dream you have in life. You can't do that in many of the other states. In fact, if by chance you can't find what you want in New Jersey, there are 2 major cities just outside our borders that can probably get you what you want while living here.

I thought about going "expensive" like many of the other states did, but they're all expensive. Can you name a cheap state with gas prices being what they are?

Here are some other 3 words used to describe New Jersey:

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:
