According to Visual Capitalist, Beer is still the most popular alcoholic beverage in America, but it’s more popular in some states than others.
Although beer consumption in the United States has been dropping since the early 1980s, consumption in Florida is up slightly. In Florida, beer consumption has been trending up in over the past five years, with a rise in beer drinking by 4.5 percent. The average per capita consumption of beer in Florida in 2017 was 26.3 gallons.
Local customs and regulations have an effect on beer consumption rates in other states.
For example, Utah has unusually low levels of beer consumption. The state’s high population of Mormons mostly abstain from drinking alcohol, and Salt Lake City has frestricts the percentage of alcohol in beer to 4 percent.
But Utah’s beer consumption grew by 2.8 percent between 2012 and 2017 – the sixth highest growth rate in the country.
Because New Hampshire has no sales tax on beer, drinkers from Vermont, Massachusetts, and Maine go over the border to buy it in their neighboring state. It is estimated that more than 50 percent of the state’s alcohol sales are to out-of-state residents.
