Posted at 11:47 a.m. on July 30, 2014
Washington Post: “No state handles its alcohol quite like New Hampshire, according to per capita consumption data shared by the Beer Institute. The libertarian New England state guzzles down more booze per person—some 40.8 gallons per year—than any other U.S. state … Next in line are North Dakota, Montana, Nevada, and Vermont, which sip on just under 35, 34, 33, and 32 gallons per person, per year, respectively.”
“On a booze by booze level, however, the story is a bit different … By the Beer Institute’s estimates, North Dakotans drink more than a pint per day on average—the most of any state in the country.”
“Washington D.C., however, is the definitive wine capital of the U.S.”
“New Hampshire is America’s biggest fan of hard alcohol.”
