If you’re an economically minded patriot, it might occur to you at some point on July Fourth, between sips of beer, to ask, “Which state consumes the most beer?” If it does, the beer lobby’s got you covered.

All three, it just so happens, share a border with our Molson-loving neighbor to the north. Utah consumed the least.
