The biggest names in international brewing are returning to the Meadowlands Exposition Center at Harmon Meadows in Secaucus, NJ on Saturday, February 2, 2013 for the third annual international beer expo. This international beer tasting extravaganza will showcase more than 50 breweries from across the globe, each providing samples of their country’s proudest brewing achievement-more than 100 beers in all. Shoulder to shoulder with some of America’s best breweries will be amazing beer from Japan, Germany, Czech Republic, Belgium, Italy, Ireland, Mexico, Poland, Peru, and others.

While beer remained the largest segment of the U.S. adult beverage industry, accounting for more than four-fifths of total alcohol volume, it was challenged by both economic and consumer trends in 2011, resulting in a 1.3 percent decline. While beer enthusiasts gather to celebrate international beers at the festival they can raise a glass to celebrate the good news coming from the import market. According to Technomic’s recently-released 2012 BeerTAB (Trends in Adult Beverage) report imported beer expanded in 2011 to reach 385 million cases, outperforming domestic beer.
