Per a 2020 study done by the NIAAA, (National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism), the state of New Hampshire consumes more alcohol than any other state in the US. The national average of alcohol consumed, per person, per year, is 2.35 gallons. New Hampshire clocked in at 4.76 gallons… more than double. The NIAAA sets a goal of 2.1 gallons, and there are only nine states that are at or below that goal.
