These Are the Drunkest Cities in America

Contributed by

Known mostly for cheese and Aaron Rodgers, Wisconsin can now add another accolade to its list of achievements: drinking. 24/7 Wall St. released a study this week naming Green Bay, Wis., the drunkest city in America. With around 27 percent of adults reporting they had binge-drank in the last 30 days, this number was 18 percent higher than the nationwide average. Two other Wisconsin cities, Eau Claire and Appleton, came in second and third, respectively.

The study analyzed 381 metro areas across the country, finding that of the 20 drunkest cities in the country 10 are Wisconsin cities. While this might not exactly seem like great news, the study also reports that these “drunk” cities tend to be better educated, have higher earnings and have surprisingly healthier citizens than those of the drier cities.

We’ll drink to that.

    I am sorry but you have to include New Orleans on that list. I have been half way around this world and New Orleans is by far one of the drunkest.
