Which State Drinks The Most (And Least) Beer?

Tyler Durden's picture





 

On a day when the underlying reason for celebration in the US is often washed away by a few gallons of alcohol, we thought it timely to see just which states are the biggest soaks. It is likely no surprise that Utah is the driest state but the top 4 states seem head and shoulders above the rest with North Dakota topping the list at 45.8 gallons of beer per capita per year (or an average of just over 1 pint per day - which seems very reasonable?).

 

 

Only 4 states have seen consumption per capita rise in the last 5 years - Vermont (+8.34%), North Dakota (+7.5%), Maine (+3.45%) and New Hampshire (+0.34%) - while Nevada (-16.42%), Washington (-15.24%), and Florida (-15.01%) are sobering up the fastest...

Three out of the top four states are the members of the tri-state militia.  I kind of miss Montana: that's some pretty country; with the micro-brew revolution that has transpired in the States as well, it seems like it makes for a decent place to visit.  Not to live, mind you, but surely a nice visit.

I thought that was funny.  I grew up for 11 years in Coeur d'Alene.  After my family moved there when I was a small child, I grew up occasionally hearing my mother's sarcastic impression of the locals: "I don't know, I'm from Idaho".  Beautiful place, though.  Spectacular, really.

That's because the power of the beer lobby in places like Bavaria is such, that beer does not count as 'alcohol', and is therefore consumed regularly by workers on their lunch breaks.

Clearly this has NOT impacted their productivity or the quality of the Bavarian made cars (Audi, BMW). And many parts of their Autobahn still have NO speed limit.

Interestingly, Germans will tolerate high cigarette and gasoline prices (highly taxed), but not high alcohol prices.

Dude (dumbass), even in the link you provide, it is acknowledged that Sam Adams did not forget to include the words 'by their creator', but didn't include them because of industry guidelines--also published in the link--(and perhaps also because of some intelligent people in their marketing department).  Furthermore, the DoI was not being quoted--it was being paraphrased.

The shitheaded writer at 'theblaze' claims, "rights granted by God shouldn’t be taken away — rights given by man can change with the wind."

So, mofreedom, considering that your own so-called 'god' was created by uneducated people's small imaginations and fed to you as a baby, I'd say that any rights granted by such a 'god' don't actually exist at all.  But you delusional types are just fucking hopeless.  If you'd at least just stop materially and ideologically supporting the war machine (with your taxes and voting), then despite still being a blight on history for your stupidity, you would no longer be guilty of continuously committing crimes against humanity.  By the way, I'm just trying to gauge your cognitive dissonance: how does your life-long contributions to genocide morally stack up with the fictional god you believe in?  Or is it ok, because the people you help destroy believe in your god's fictitious cousin deity?

Whew, just as long as Texas beat out Louisiana. 

Texas has a fair number of towns and areas that where settled by beer drinking Europeans, Germans and Bohemians.  One kid from a German town showed up Baylor Universitey, a dry Baptist campus, and started to unload his car. He was heart broken when told he couldn't take the two cases of beer up to his dorm room. Texas A&M, on the other hand,supports three beer distributorships. 

As Johan Golberg has said, Budweiser is a beer for when you just want a beer and no surprizes. It's not greqt, it's not bad, it is the closest thing to generic beer you are going to find. No matter where you go it tastes the same. It is popular with the hot and sweaty outdoor working crowd. You can knock back a couple and not fall on your behind. 

Foster's on the other hand, is what you drink when you have kids.

I like beer.

During the summer my favourite is St. Ambroise Apricot Wheat Ale from McAuslan Breweries and I am lately also enjoying a Raspberry Ale they make too.

During the winter I like Granville Island Lions Winter Ale.

lol Quebec is #2 in alcohol consumption!! I am from Quebec, but now live in BC, and GOD BOOZE IS EXPENSIVE HERE.

My personal favorite: La Fin Du Monde by Unibroue: 9% strong craft beer; not for pussies.

Correlation with ganja smoking?

Take a hit from the bong, and go right to the rock, mon.

That chart is racist!  Starting the graph at 20 gallons instead of 0 makes Utah and others look as if they are a fraction of ND when they are just half.  I mean they still drink over 20 gallons.

Seeing South Dakota, North Dakota, and Montana in the bottom four makes sense .. they all have Indian reservations (and drinking problems for the people living on them).  But I can't figure why New Hampshire is in that group.

Also, highest use of anti-depressants in the Nation.

I'm a little disappointed that Wisconsin is not number one.  It's 5 AM here and I am going to crack one open.  What time in the morning do they start drinking in NoDak.  4 AM?  Jeebus, how about a little temperance there NoDak?!

The Free Shit Army of crows has just moved in.  They remind me of MSM with their incessant cawing.  There are one less of them now.  Nothing better than starting off the day with a casualty.  Now go pick over the carcass of one of your own.  Fly off.

Alcoholism is not a disease but rather the condition that is acheived by an individual who has been subjected to prolonged exposure to Federal Reserve FOMC press releases.

Acute alcoholism can also occur from prolonged exposure to the US Supreme Court, the US Congress, the President of the United States or any combination thereof.

Avery Brewing in Boulder has Hog Heaven, Avery IPA, Dugana, all good brews.

Boulder Brewing has Mojo India Pale Ale.  An excellent IPA.

In Longmont, Left Hand Brewing has Warrior IPA.  It's good too.  

Ranger IPA from New Belgium is a top notch IPA.

Torpedo from Sierra Nevada is a great ipax2.

In Montana, Bent Nail from Red Lodge Brewing is a good brew.

However, O'Dell's Brewing in Fort Collins is by far and away the finest brewery in the US.

Their IPA is one great brew.

As I have mentioned here on another post, Crooked Tree IPA is one great ipa.

Colorado has the edge for the best brews brewed in the US.

Summit's Extra Pale Ale is a good brew too.  It's brewed in Minnesota.

Sam Adam's Latitude 48 is an ok ipa, but not great.

Red Hood IPA is ok.

If you haven't had a Furious, you're missing out.

Ethos from Tall Grass is an excellent brew.

Ich trinke gern bier.

I forgot to mention Dale's Pale Ale and Deviant Dale's Sinister Pale Ale.

You can go to Lyons, CO and drink them at Oskar Blues.

To be fair tobthe NorDak'ers, there's nothing much else to do up there... It seems like every small town has a bar that's the social hub of the community

The only reason Ky. drinks so little is due to the Perc 30 addiction.

The pain clinic is the new liquor store...

Even though I am not Austrian, I like beer with breakfast. Steak, eggs, beer... sold!
