Well with my 1-2 beers a night (3 on weekends) I sure drive up the monthly average in Nashville!

I'm not surprised, though. Where I work there are a lot of people who are very religious, don't drink at all, and kind of look down on people who do.

Pretty proud that Knoxville is the only major city in TN not on the list! Glad I could help!

I was expecting Salt Lake City to be ranked #1 or #2.

It was based off residents. Still though, I found Miami way odd to be on that list.

No, not really. Miami is mostly latin. We don't drink much.
