The U.S. Drank 7 Billion Gallons of Beer Last Year. Here was CO’s Contribution
If the above photo doesn't generally resemble your life, perhaps this one does a better job:
Either way, I really hope this isn't a better fit:
No judgement regardless! Adults in America share a love affair with beer. And that's okay, there's enough for everyone. We know this because of the website Vinepair, who came up with literally 10 brackets that each U.S. state could fall into in terms of beer consumption.
Gotta say, Colorado could be doing a lot worse. What I mean by that is, there are three entire brackets of greater levels of cerveza gulping before you get to us. We "only" put away 117.6 million gallons in 2017.
New Hampshire, on the other hand, drank the most at 40.6 gallons per capita... followed by Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Maine, Nebraska, Nevada, Vermont, and Texas.
States that drank the least were Utah, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, and Arkansas.
Colorado drank 28.3 gallons of beer per capita last year, for a total of 117.6 million.
I know. I know what you're thinking: We gotta get that number up. I've already got a great start on it for 2018, so I'm doing my part. Are you? (Hey, no pressure!)
This will open up the entire study. Have fun:
