The State
That Drinks
The Most
Alcohol Per
Capita May
Surprise You
While you won’t have to look too hard to find a glass of whiskey or a bottle of cold beer in any city, no matter how big or small, do you know which state has more alcohol drinkers per capita than any other state? New York has a wide range of trendy bars, and California produces 85% of the country's wine, but there’s a tiny state that drinks more.
New Hampshire boasts the highest amount of consumed alcohol per capita in the U.S. at 4.76 gallons, owing to its long history in wine-making, boasting a wide selection of over 30 wineries across the state. The popularity of the Granite State’s wine has started a "Wine Week," celebrating all sorts of wines and winemakers from around the state.
With New Hampshire’s wide, sprawling vineyards, it’s no surprise that the residents like to enjoy alcohol quite often. One more reason behind the high alcohol consumption is that there's no tax on liquor, which means people don’t have to pay a little extra for their drinks.
