No. 11 Biggest Beer Drinker: Louisiana

Gallons sold per capita: 24.7
Population of legal drinking age: 3,210,884
State excise taxes collected on malt beverages: $35,833,051

Louisiana summers are hot—high temperatures average above 90 degrees and it gets even hotter in the northern part of the state—making a cold beverage seem all the more refreshing. In New Orleans, the center of Mardi Gras and other popular festivals year-round, drinkers are allowed to possess open alcoholic beverages in plastic containers in public, according to the New Orleans Police Department, making it easy to drink on the go.
