It's July 4th, what better date to take a look at this country's beer drinking quantities, it's barbeque day afterall. According to the Beer Institute (!) people in North Dakota drank the most beer last year, 45.8 gallons per capita in 2012. Utah folks drank the least-20.2 gallons per. Utah isn't surprising what with the strong Mormon population although it's surprising they even got to 20 gallons.
The entire list is here. Rounding out the top 5 were: New Hampshire, Montana, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Illinois was 26th and Missouri was 18th.
