No. 25 Biggest Beer Drinker: Alabama

Gallons sold per capita: 21.9
Population of legal drinking age: 3,431,106
State excise taxes collected on malt beverages: $110,412,136

There are few Alabamians who don't enjoy a cold brew while watching the Crimson Tide or Auburn Tigers destroy competitors on the football field. Alabama sold nearly 22 gallons per person age 21 or over in 2010, according to data from the Beer Institute. That's not bad for a state with dozens of dry counties and that, according to Free The Hops | Alabamians For Specialty Beer, limits beers to containers no larger than 16 ounces, meaning no large bottles, 40-ouncers, or growlers.
