Which U.S. state drinks the most alcohol per capita?
Residents in New Hampshire consume a staggering 4.76 gallons of alcohol per year. That’s the highest per-capita rate of alcohol consumption in any state in the nation, far exceeding the target of 2.1 gallons or less that public officials set in 2020. Trailing behind New Hampshire, we find Delaware at 4.01 gallons, followed by Nevada with 3.43 gallons, Montana at 3.32 gallons, and North Dakota at 3.26 gallons. Predictably, Utah, renowned for its stringent alcohol regulations, maintains the lowest per capita alcohol consumption at a mere 1.36 gallons.
The correct answer is New Hampshire.
