Pour One for Robin Yount

Forbes Magazine has named the drunkest cities in America, and perhaps unsuprisingly, Milwaukee, Wisconsin took the top spot. The city that calls itself “The Nation’s Watering Hole” ranked number #1 in a survey of the nation’s 35 largest cities, as determined by state regulations on alcohol, number of drinkers, number of heavy drinkers, number of binge drinkers, and alcoholism (complete methodology here). Milwaukee had the highest number of adults who reported drinking an alcoholic beverage in the past 30 days (70 percent) and highest numbers of binge drinkers (22 percent).

Milwaukee is home to the breweries for Schlitz, Pabst, Miller, and Blatz.

Minneapolis-St. Paul, Columbus (Ohio), Boston, Austin, Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Providence (tie) constituted the top 10.
