No state consumes more beer per capita than New Hampshire, at 43 gallons per person, which is nearly 15 gallons more than the national average.

Oh, they drink plenty of that, as well...Red Hampshire has HUGE liquor stores at their interstate rest areas...drivers from New York and Assachusetts can also load up on booze on their way north to the ski areas.

If Coors and Bud were disqualified as “beer” the numbers would be very different.
