You Need a Drink: In America’s Drunkest Cities

So you think you can drink? The Daily Beast has listed the 40 drunkest cities in America. The rankings were determined by the percentage of citizens identified as binge drinkers and the number of booze-related deaths. Some of the selections won’t surprise you (list-topper Milwaukee is known as a beer capital, plus they’ve had three Socialist mayors), but some of the others (New York City is nowhere to be found, and Reno beat Las Vegas) will. Here’s the top ten:

  • Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • Fargo, North Dakota
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Austin, Texas
  • Reno, Nevada
  • Burlington, Vermont
  • Omaha, Nebraska
  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Anchorage, Alaska
  • San Diego, California
