Montana still has a drinking problem!  This time we made the list not once, but twice in the latest survey of America’s Drunkest Cities.  Luckily, Billings isn’t one of them!

The numbers come from a CDC survey of more than 350,000 adults across the country. broke the numbers down for 180 cities across the country.

Montana was one of the top five most alcohol consuming states according to a previous MainStreet ranking.  Part of the problem in Montana seems to be that many residents start binge drinking early.  Can’t imagine why?  There is so much to do in Montana!

Bozeman came in 5th while Butte came in 4th.  Wonder if the annual St. Patty’s Day celebration in Butte had something to do with it?

Here’s the full list:

10th Drunkest City: Wilmington, N.C.

9th Drunkest City: San Francisco, Calif.

8th Drunkest City: Hilton Head Island, S.C.

7th Drunkest City: Bridgeport-Stamford, Conn.

6th Drunkest City: Milwaukee, Wis.

5th Drunkest City: Bozeman, Mont.

4th Drunkest City: Butte-Silver Bow, Mont.

3rd Drunkest City: Fargo, N.D.

2nd Drunkest City: Kapaa, Hawaii

The Drunkest City: Hilo, Hawaii

According to the World Health Organization, the average American consumes roughly two and a half gallons of alcohol each year, giving our country the 56th highest alcohol consumption rate in the world.  Cheers!
