Who’s Drinking Beer?

A guide to which states consume the most beer.  Seems that Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota and Nevada drink more than most.  You’d think for people that drink so much beer, Montana would have better microbreweries.  Maybe this is my excuse to move out there.

    Yeah, Montana is first per capita, but there just aren’t that many people in Montana.

    I can attest that Moose Drool (brown ale) is pretty darn good. I haven’t had Peg Leg Stout or Walk the Plank Stout but they sound good, too.

    If it goes by beer sales, our numbers in NH are going to be skewed by Massholes and Maineiacs buying cheap beer here (and no can and bottle deposits) and drinking it at home.

    I am surprised by WI not being highest. We do own brandy consumption though.

    Moose drool!

    Gotta have it. Puts everything else (especially that horrid stuff from Colorado) to shame.

    Except maybe dragonsbreath original ale from the Kingston Brewing Company (a Pub), in Kingston, ON, Canuckistan.

    Moose Drool, as microbrews go, is a decent brew. Last time I had it, I ended up yelling at the squirrels who were trying to drop ponderosa pine cones on my head. But it is not a fantastic brew, in the sense of what you would get from a brewery like Victory, or Dogfishhead.

    Busch light is the beer of choice here in Bismarck, ND. I usually go through an 18 pack of pounders every week.
    On a more interesting note, we had a Tea party on the state capital grounds this evening. Most estimates had it at about 1,000 people, thats a decent turnout for us rednecks on a thursday night with softball league in full swing.
