Stop slacking, Drew. The Bluegrass state is counting on you.

They've moved on to bourbon, moonshine, and industrial solvents.

I despise slideshow articles. Obviously they sell ads based on volume of clicks, not individual page clicks, which serves to encourage more of this nonsense, so I dump fast.
 
2013-07-06 05:35:16 PM
huh, I would have thought that Nevada would be higher...low population with MASSIVE beer sales due to hotel/casinos.  Are there parameters that I failed to see (not that I looked of course)

Thank you for that.

Meh, it doesn't count homebrew. There's a sizable homebrew culture in Colorado that would skew that number.

This would be why:

All of that white those are dry counties. Quite simply, if you haven't lived in a state that LOVES its freaking beer, you don't realize how much beer these people drink. I am in San Diego now (used to be in Lex, KY) and there is no comparison. SD loves its freaking beer. And California didn't even make the list. That being said I have been spreading the Bourbon gospel out here. Its fun to watch people taste a decent or  good quality bourbon for the first time.

Why drink beer when there are more barrels of bourbon in the state than people?

I disagree, the slideshow here was informative. I had no idea what beer looked like.

Not possible that Wisconsin is so low. What the hell is wrong with you people? Are you slacking off or what?

My home is in Montana, but I work in North Dakota. Numbers 3 and 1, respectively, with ND ahead by about 5 gallons/person/year. I wonder if the numbers would be reversed if I was in Montana full-time?

but then i was expecting this to be the bath salts list.  not beer

I'll continue to work hard to keep South Dakota in the top 5.

Did you see the note at the bottom?  "Note: The above slideshow only consider consumption by people 21 years and older."

THAT's why Wisconsin isn't #1 on there.

...am I doing this math correctly? Do people in North Dakota drink, on average, 488.5 bottles of beer per year?

/ 45.8 gallons * 128 oz/gallon * (1 bottle/12 oz)
// I can guess why your state's fat

Depending on what swill is being downed, my habit of drinking a few bottles of water could get me as intoxicated as a few of those labeled "beer drinkers". Enjoying me a Brooklyn Monster and will probably follow with a Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot, plus I have an opened bottle of Viking Blod in the fridge.

Same reason Minnesota ranks as low as it does. Kinda disappointed in my fellow residents.

Anyone have any stats on KY per capita beers drank in only the wet counties?
 
2013-07-06 06:47:21 PM
Came in here to say, "Because bourbon, that's why," but I see you farkers have it covered.

2013-07-06 06:51:43 PM
Actually, if you look at the .pdf in one of the link, KY ranks 24th in shipments...I'm assuming that's shipments to...and 46th in consumption...that discrepancy?  Bootleggers.

What? I'm not in the list? Does it have to be a State, or a states worth of beer?

I'm surprised Oregon didn't make it.

If it's median per capita consumption Drew needs help. If it's mean there is no explanation.
 
2013-07-06 07:33:01 PM
The New Hampshire numbers are skewed. They're #2 in beer sales per capita because they have the lowest beer prices in New England with no sales tax and no deposit. It's a well known fact that many residents of border states drive over to NH to do their shopping, with the bulk of those sales going right down to Massachusetts.

redmid17: Why drink beer when there are more barrels of bourbon in the state than people?


Came here to post this.

I stopped drinking beer entirely when I discovered bourbon.

O perhaps more accurately, when my palate matured and I could appreciate bourbon's subtle flavors.

/hope i die before i start to like Scotch, that shiat's nasty
/it's the Sam Adams of whiskeys.  Tastes like burnt ass.
 
2013-07-06 07:43:40 PM
NH always has some of the highest liq sales on these things due to lack of tax and people driving across states to load up on the cheap booze there.  actually nh people don't drink much.

with that being said....not surprised majority of the states touch canada ;)
 
2013-07-06 07:53:40 PM
The state I live in is #?!?!?!?

I was told that the only activities for youth here was drinking and sex. This was provided by someone who had spent a lot of time doing both.

I'm surprised that the Empire State didn't make the list. Guess they don't count my wife's Michelob Ultra as beer.

Heh, I liked how the only non West/mid-westish states were NH and VT.

NY is probably having our numbers dragged down by that damn apple. They're all into wine and martinis and shiat down there.

Interesting that many are expressing surprise that states with "Beer Cultures" are not on the list (California, Oregon, Colorado)  Keep in mind that despite the love of craft beers, they are a drop compared to large brewery beer (and home brew a speck within that drop)

In a way, not surprising that the top states are lower population states where beer is the choice beverage with a few anomalies like Nevada (high number of out of state consumers) Nebraska/South Dakota (look at consumption statistics in towns near reservations) plus possibly States affected by "across the border" consumers due to taxes or liquor laws

Yup, here's one sad case, The lawsuit was filed by the Oglala Sioux Tribe, which governs the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where alcohol is banned. Four beer stores named in the suit sold the equivalent of 4.3 million 12-ounce beer cans last year even though they're in Whiteclay, a Nebraska town with about a dozen residents on the reservation's border.
