As REM once famously sang, everybody drinks. Or something close to that, anyway. Either way, if you're an American (and chances are, if you read this website, you are), you may have wondered at some point: Which state drinks the most?
Well, have no fear. The Center for Disease Control has answered your question. And it turns out, the answer is Wisconsin.
Yes, it's true: The land of cheese curds and Don "Magic Man" Majkowski reported the highest percentage of drinking residents, with 65.33% of Cheeseheads consuming of at least one drink in the last 30 days. The Badger State narrowly edged out Washington, DC, which reported 65.03% of residents as drinking in the last month. DC may not be a state, but Washingtonians are clearly in the same state of mind. Which is minding matters in a bar, most likely.
New England rounded out the top five, with Vermont (64.47%) in third, New Hampshire (64.07%) in fourth, and Massachusetts (64.00%) in fifth. What else do you do when you're snowed in?
