FTA: New Hampshire has the highest per capita alcohol consumption because "anyone who is driving through or lives on the border of New Hampshire will probably opt for the 5% or 6% savings, and just go into the state to buy their alcohol there," he said. As a result, it is common for New Hampshire liquor stores to be visited by residents of Massachusetts, Vermont, and Maine.

Meh. Makes sense.

"In 1790, United States government figures showed that annual per-capita alcohol consumption for everybody over fifteen amounted to thirty-four gallons of beer and cider, five gallons of distilled spirits, and one gallon of wine."
 
We've forgot our founding principles.

Yeah, sorta puts the lie to the "consumption" part if people are travelling from other states to buy it there.

NH is the taint of NE, and I've spent time there (YMMV). If you're stuck in NH, you damn well better believe you're drinking.

Yeah I have heard plenty of stories about MA having statey's (sp?) on the border looking for people buying a bunch of booze in NH and bringing it across the border into MA.

When I lived in Memphis we would drive across the river because the Arkansas Walgreens had ridiculously cheap booze, due to lower taxes. Multiple friends got bootlegging tickets coming back into TN when stopped for speeding. It would be almost cool to get a ticket for"bootlegging".

Numbnuts. Way to generalize.

Woooo Woooo

/ah, the good old days, sure wish I could remember them

/how did I not get arrested for public intoxication, I'll never know

//And then they raised the drinking age back up to 21. But that was ok, I was grandfathered by 10 days. my brother had to wait 2 years 50 weeks and 5 days, or something very close to that.

It was actually in the bathroom at the Rte. 1 Mobil before the Two Guys Smokeshop, she screamed for more and we were threatened with the police being called. I think the bad man touched me in Lyndeboro, but that just got me harder.

Let's see. Hampton Beach is awesome, I'll give NH that. But Nashua, nope, done. The rest of the state is strictly drive-through, to get to better places that matter.

Hampton Beach is a shiathole tourist destination that locals avoid like the plague!

Since Vermont is number 7 and this little quote from the article:

Jones believes that New Hampshire has the highest beer consumption partly because Vermont and Massachusetts residents come there to purchase alcohol.

I believe Vermont should be higher..

I'd keep partially trolling, but I'm starting to giggle too hard. The point being, NH seriously isn't for me, and when I'm there, heavy drinking dulls the experience. If it works for you, hey, awesome. I do have friends there who absolutely love living in NH, and wouldn't live anywhere else.

Between the logjam of traffic in Nashua, the idiotic way 95 is threaded through the State, the nice gotcha two buck toll as you head to points North or South, the problems with Seabrook, the overarching levels of derp that seemingly exist everywhere, it's not my place. Vermont has better uh, everything, Maine is vastly superior in coastline and in overall sheer size of wilderness, and the people are nicer in general, imho.

And then you get to hit Little New York in MA. About the only thing going for NH is the fact I can drive through it pretty damn quickly.
 
2012-10-11 10:23:11 PM
I've never had a beer in my 35 years. But driving through New Hampshire, I can see why,

Znuh: ...Let's see. Hampton Beach is awesome,...

And, we are done here. Thanks for coming everybody, good night!

There is a wicked awesome place that you will totally love, dude. You might have heard of it - The Jersey Shore? Let's see - usually voted one of the top rated states to live and raise a family. Not nearly hit as hard by the economic slow down or the real estate debacle. No income tax, no sales tax. Mountains, skiing, lakes, ocean - but, alas... only one Hampton Beach.

Good riddance, Znuh. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

How does that stuff taste? Balanced as far as IPAs go, or is she extra hoppy? Ill send you some real good IPA if you send me some of that. Also the sister brewery (Portsmouth, according to wiki "NH beer and brewing") has an exceptional imperial stout if wiki isnt getting carried away."

"...Russian Imperial Stout, which has been called both the best beer in America and the most sought-after beer in America."


Do you know anything about this? Just how good is this beer?

This is why I want to move out of Wisconsin as soon as we can... Too many beer drinking, drunk-ass rednecks who loudly shout "Go Packers" every 5 seconds. Sick and tired of it. Back in West Allis we had 5 bars within a 2-3 block radius which is nuts and constantly had to put up with drunken idiots barfing in our driveway. I hate this state.
