Interesting observation here. NH is shown as the highest New England state. The truth is that our taxes are much lower and prices the same so a large amount of our sales come from VT, ME and MA as people cross the border to buy booze. We look like drunkards on the surface but are actually the "Inn Keepers" of New England. Not to say we don't consume our share.

Statistics are usually a bunch of BS. Need to find out who is doing the study to find out the agenda.. I bet ya MADD would have a much different chart if they did one.. Everything would be dark blue.. Thing is you have to understand how they are measuring and such. I think this study is very biased on population. The bigger population centers are probably not correct.

I spent 4 months in New Orleans once, and if the rest of Louisiana is like that, it should be black; they could really drink. Made my rounds up in Wisconsin, also. I +1 that it should be darker, dang bunch of cheese head drunks Da Packers!

Speaking of the Mormons, I flew through Salt Lake last fall and they had a beer at the airport called "Polygamy Porter." What a great name for a beer. It was pretty good, from what I remember.

Not sure if anyone needed it, but I figured it'd be helpful

I can vouch for this, having driven to NH from VT to buy cheap beer/liquor at various times in my life (though I was always happy to return to my side of the river afterward, VT being superior in all respects other than cheap booze and fireworks!) Not sure if laws have changed but historically you couldn't get beer on Sundays in MA, which also drove beer sales over the border.
