How do your drinking habits stack up against your neighbors’? And how about versus those on the opposite side of the country? We analyzed data from annual alcohol surveys and reports to see who is drinking the most, and where.
The East Coast is home to three of the top five hardest-drinking states, although no region stands alone. The 30 states consuming more than 2.31 gallons of alcohol per year are pretty geographically diverse, stretching from Maine to Texas to California to Hawaii. Utah residents consume the least alcohol, perhaps unsurprisingly, given the state’s robust drinking laws (although there are creative distillers making their making the state’s capital).
