Beer Is Still The Most Popular Alcoholic Beverage In America

If you are craving a mug of beer to wash down your authentic German pretzel, head to Checkers Old Munchen German restaurant in Pompano. You’ll find more than 60 German beers, and whether you prefer a lager, a pilsner, dark beer, wheat beer or even a double bock, Checkers Old Munchen has you covered.

According to Visual Capitalist, Beer is still the most popular alcoholic beverage in America, but it’s more popular in some states than others.

Although beer consumption in the United States has been dropping since the early 1980s, consumption in Florida is up slightly. In Florida, beer consumption has been trending up in over the past five years, with a rise in beer drinking by 4.5 percent. The average per capita consumption of beer in Florida in 2017 was 26.3 gallons.

Local customs and regulations have an effect on beer consumption rates in other states.

For example, Utah has unusually low levels of beer consumption. The state’s high population of Mormons mostly abstain from drinking alcohol, and  Salt Lake City has frestricts the percentage of alcohol in beer to 4 percent.

But Utah’s beer consumption grew by 2.8 percent between 2012 and 2017 – the sixth highest growth rate in the country.

Because New Hampshire has no sales tax on beer, drinkers from Vermont, Massachusetts, and Maine go over the border to buy it in their neighboring state. It is estimated that more than 50 percent of the state’s alcohol sales are to out-of-state residents.

When you think of a German restaurant, you probably think of beer, and Checkers Old Munchen in Pompano Beach has not only a wide variety of beer but also a Beer Hall of Fame for patrons who work their way through them all. Ask about the beer passport that will guide you on your journey to having your name added to the Hall of Fame.

Here’s a sampling of what reviews on Trip Advisor have to say about Checkers Old Munchen German restaurant in Pompano:

“Having a meal at CHECKERS OLD MUNCHEN is a multifaceted experience with so many rewarding aspects. It starts with a great atmosphere. It feels comfortable and homey, while also transmitting the understanding that you’re in an established, critically acclaimed restaurant with a fierce, loyal clientele. The quality and integrity of ownership and staff maintains a high-altitude standard of operation. That produces a lofty sincerity from customers who wouldn’t even consider a competitor in a pinch. I write from experience as I’ve been taken to CHECKERS OLD MUNCHEN for a decade of birthday dinners for the best German food and service available anywhere, which is always enjoyed in the perfect atmosphere and setting. It’s well worth the trip if you don’t live in Pompano.”

“Started with the fresh bakery pretzels and pumpernickel with mustard. Moved on to the incredible goulash (seriously) and then for dessert — raspberry sponge cake. Light and wonderfully flavorful. If you’re in the area, you have to stop in. I promise you won’t be disappointed.”

“A must try as The German Meals are very good…we had the veal schnitzel, the goulash with red cabbage and spetzl…very authentic.”

“We go to Florida every year in March and this is one of our must go to places. There is a wide selection of dishes to choose from. Always a problem because they are all really good. The servings are plentiful, so you definitely won’t leave hungry.”

Went there for a late lunch. Every dish that was ordered was excellent including desserts. Wide choice of authentic German food and beers. A great dining experience enjoyed by us all.”
