FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A new study shows that North Dakota is tops in the nation in beer shipments per capita, if age is taken into account.

The analysis was done by the Beer Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based trade association representing brewers, importers and suppliers. It found that nearly 46 gallons of beer were shipped to North Dakota for every person of legal drinking age last year. Put another way, it’s about 82 six-packs for every person.

North Dakota also has the most bars per capita in the country.

New Hampshire was second at 44 gallons, followed by Montana with 41 and South Dakota is not far behind with 39.

North Dakota Department of Human Services prevention administrator Pamela Sageness says the culture in North Dakota is that “a six-pack is a serving.”

There’s not a whole lot to do out here besides drink beer, I guess.” – Jamie Coppin, manager at Bernie’s Wines and Liquors, Fargo, ND.
