Party time in Nevada probably accounts for theirs.  Otherwise they're all cold weather states and there's nothing else to do in the winter.

"2.1-gallon limit per year" -  This "science" brought to you by the University of Woe & Misery, Salt Lake City

Wait, that doesn't sound right. Is that 2.1 gallons a year, or per month? And at what concentration? 195 proof? 150? 90? I have questions.

The subheader: "As a country, we haven't drank this much booze since 1990."

I wonder what's changed in the last couple of years, to lead to such increased drikning.

As a Wisconsinite, I try harder so you don't have to.

Hell, since the election, the gf and I have been going through two gallons of vodak per week.

Buncha pantywaists in this county, if you ask me.

Last time I went out to eat with a certain set of relatives, the 55 year old sister in law spent the meal showing her husband pictures on Facebook, conjecturing what niece was getting laid, and generally lamenting about farking millennials being rude.  My elderly dad tried to be best friends with the waitstaff.  The waitress, after being asked a very personal question, responded with the fact that she was raised in foster care, and raped as a child.  The mother in law was shocked that the waitress would tell us such things and campaigned for a lower tip.  Phone woman's daughter (a millennial) chided her mom for being rude at the table, and was ignored.  When I drove dad back home, he yelled at his wife (once they got back home,) for raising such a rude daughter in a lovely fit of elder rage.

I just watched the show... and eventually tried to explain to my semi senile dad that one shouldn't ask strangers personal questions, and that it's bad form to yell at the one's you love.

Restaurant rules are for the weak.

Yeah - they didn't adjust for tourists.  Plenty of Mormons who live in Nevada.

Are you kidding me? Who can afford imports, and what red blooded American would buy Russian vodak?

2.1 gallons a year. Pure alcohol. I almost certainly exceed that, and I'm never drunk, legally speaking, or as a practical matter.

2.1 gallons of pure alcohol = about 16 gallons of wine, aka 80 bottles.

That's nothing.

My liver and I have not been on speaking terms since grad school.

Ooooh, well la-dee-fricking-da!  Look at Mr. Moneybags over here.  Out here in Real America, we drink Popov!

That's per week, right?

There are two Dakotas?

Those aren't consumption numbers, they seem to be sales.  NH is a tax free state surrounded by states that charge taxes.  There are liquor stores at the borders.  I suspect that might skew their numbers a bit.

Some of those states belong on the list to Most Visited States With The Low Alcohol Taxes.

So, 2 through 10 are within a gallon of each other and the difference between 2 and 1 is more than a gallon? I'm sure that has nothing to do with the fact that 1) New Hampshire has no sales tax.

Fifty percent of NH alcohol sales are to out-of-staters  but that doesn't seem to be enough.

Makes sense Wisconsin is slipping. I moved out of state a few years ago, so the results are still adjusting for the loss.

It's probably more due to the state-run liquor stores in every other town, with many located along the interstate highways.  I know plenty of out-of-staters who shop at these stores to restock on the cheap.

How the heck is Louisiana not on this list????? Mardi Gras, the 50 billion festivals throughout the year, hurricane parties, and the list goes on.
