The Drunkest State: New Hampshire
New Hampshire is a drinker’s paradise. It has the highest per capita sales of beer and spirits on our list, and it’s largely because of one reason: The state does not have a tax on its alcohol. So people in and out of state flock to its liquor stores for cheaper booze. Yet New Hampshire has managed to turn a vice into a virtue. According to the Wall Street Journal, the state “derives more revenue from wine and liquor sales than any other non-tax source.” Congratulations, New Hampshire, you’re the booziest state in the nation.
