The five US states that like to drink the most

New research has revealed where to find the biggest drinkers in the USA.

The study, carried out by gambling website PlayUSA, looks into the number of times Americans have used the internet to search for places to drink alcohol in their state over the past month, taking in a total of 823 million search entries on websites such as Google and Yahoo.

The data takes into account both the number of overall searches, but also the total population of individual states, offering a new perspective on the nation’s drinking habits and go-to destinations for a night out.

Despite ranking as the state with the most searches, notorious tourist hotspot California’s larger population means that, proportionately, locals are not more inclined to head out to a bar. California ranked in 10th place for drinking searches, behind Maryland and New Jersey.

    Totally skewed logic- the only reason locals have to search for alcohol is because they don’t have a bar or liquor store on every corner…welcome to WISCONSIN…drink Wisconsinbly!
