    I know you're just posting for fun, but couldn't help but point out that this is "per capita" so where we rank in population, is irrelevant in relation to this ranking of 15.

    Looks like there is alot of work to be done. There are a bunch of our surrounding states ahead of us. I think we can step it up!!!

    If it wasn't for Templeton Rye, we'd be way higher. We like our liquor too.

    Re: Congrats State of Iowa!!

    When I was younger I could put away the beer.

    Now, I can't. It makes me sad. However, I have replaced beer with Tanqueray and Tonic.

    I do have to agree with Al_4_State about Templeto Rye. If any of you get a chance to take a tour there, it is well worth the time and trip. Smoother rye you'll never find, and great history behind it as well.

    Same with North Dakota being ranked so high. During those long cold winters, I bet people spend a lot of time sitting inside or at a bar pounding beer until they pass out, wake up, shovel the driveway and do it again.

    Re: Congrats State of Iowa!!

    there was a recurring theme amongst all those states. The farther away from civilization the more beer you drink apparently.

    I think you mean Black Velvet. #1 liquor in Iowa for something like 18 years in a row, and its not close.

    Re: Congrats State of Iowa!!

    I think in reality Wisconsin is higher. They should have probably made a few adjustments for a few states.....

    Louisiana- I would like to see their consumption without Mardi Gras beer sales included. I bet that makes a huge difference.

    South Dakota- makes sense that their in there, because most the non populous northern states are, but I would like to see their consumption without the Sturgis week included. Also, what percent comes from the Black Hills tourists.

    Nevada- duh. Don't know how you would include this one with Las Vegas, and Reno accounting for probably 90% of their consumption. Of that, 75% of it is probably people from Iowa, and Wisconsin drinking in Vegas..........
