    Buahaha, so true. However, a lot of us in this region do drink quality beer to enjoy the flavor. There aren't very many people in this region of the "walk to 7-11 and buy a 36-pack of Budweiser" ilk.

    That's a fact. North Dakota fits that bill. Plys the green is legal here so that probably affects it too.

  • This is true. Go to the mid-west and attempt to find a micro-brew. I freaking dare you. You can't do it. However, walk on a street and stop at a corner and I bet you there's a bar there in the midwest. And in that bar, the only drinks they serve are beer (Bud in the lower midwest, and Miller in the upper midwest) and Whiskey. And these guys in the midwest drink beer by the gallon and then get a to-go cup from the barkeep. You might think i'm joking, but I'm really not.

    So it doesn't surprise me that a midwestern state leads the country in beer consumption.

  • YES! We finished last again. Way to go Utah. I could care less about beer, beer drinking, what kind of beer some guy is drinking at any particular moment, or what he's going to have as soon as he hits his ass on the couch. Does that make me an ANTI-beer snob? I am just indifferent.

    I grew up with my head rattling with Olympia and Hamm's commercials.

  • I bought four hundred dollars worth of beer for a memorial service last weekend. I feel like I'm doing my part. I do agree that western washington is very quality over quantity, but Eastern Washington leans more toward the 30 bomb of Budweiser.

    Look, pardon me if I feel like I'm a more sophisticated beer drinker than the average rural Wisconsin bar drinker was when I lived there. Shaking salt into their glasses of freaking Miller High Life and Pabst Blue Ribbon. I'm not talking about salting the rims of their glasses, I mean pouring from a salt shaker like a tablespoon of salt straight into the beer.

  • First of all, its 'per capita' consumption, not total consumption.

    However, I find it rather strange that in 2012, California was #1 and North Dakota was #44, and in 2013 it was the exact opposite with ND at #1 and Cali at #44. Suspect at the very least.

    I can't speak for Tennessee, but in Wisconsin, people there salt the holy hell out of EVERYTHING to the extreme. They salt the beer to "add flavor".

    Too bad the "man camps" are dry. I'm not naive enough to think no one is drinking at them but there aernt kegs and cases flowing all over.

  • Texas @ numero 2! WooHoo!!!

    I have a feeling these numbers are about sales figures and not counting the dead soldiers in the trash...

    I suspect some distributor in ND saw an opportunity to make a 3rd qtr increase in profit by buying a few extra rail-car loads at $.75 cheaper a case. There has got to be a cache of sweet nectar being stockpiled near the Canadian border in preparation for an apocalypse. I guarantee they aren't drinking more beer than Texans are.

  • Houston, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it very common to get a "shot and a brew" in much of Texas? If ND is anything like Wisconsin, they pound beers like mad in bars but rarely touch hard alcohol, compared to say, a national average.
