    Milwaukee is nation's 'drunkest' city

    Milwaukee is nation's 'drunkest' city


    Just in time for New Year’s Eve, Milwaukee finds itself in first place — on The Daily Beast's list of the "40 Drunkest Cities."

    To compile its inaugural list of the drunkest cities in America, The Daily Beast said it assessed average alcohol consumption over a month, the highest levels of binge drinking, and the places where large portions of the population suffer the dire health consequences from over-imbibing.

    Residents of Milwaukee, the home of the former Miller Brewing Co. and other brewers, drink an average of 12.76 drinks per month. A total of 7.1 percent of adults are considered heavy drinkers, another 21.8 percent of adults are considered binge drinkers and there are 3.9 deaths per 100,000 residents from alcoholic liver disease, according to The Daily Beast's list, which was released Tuesday.

    That is because the only thing to do in WI is either look at cheese, make cheese, be cold, watch the Packers, or get drunk. And honestly out of that list getting drunk sounds like the most satisfying option.

    I think it's more likely the strong German ethnic prevalence up there. Beer drinking is a tradition among those of German descent.

    Coming from the city that makes some of the worst beer.

    Re: Milwaukee is nation's 'drunkest' city

    Milwaukee is home to one of the best breweries - Lakefront Brewery. If you're ever in town be sure to take the tour, it's WAY better than the stupid Miller tour.

    Wisconsin is also home to another legendary brewery - New Glarus Brewing Co. They make Spotted Cow, one of the best beers ever brewed.

    I'm no fan of Miller but if you think Milwaukee/Wisconsin makes "crappy beer" then you my friend have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

    And there is plenty to do in Milwaukee we just enjoy doing it all while drinking, or after pregaming. You're thinking of LaCrosse where people just drink and drown in the river.

    On my flight from DFW to California the guy sitting next to me was a pitcher for the Brewers. He definitely liked Jack Daniels.

    On a scale of 1 to 10 of how surprised I am by this, this rates at about -3.
