This Drinking Map Shows Which Booze Rules In America

What’s your poison? Better yet, just tell
us where you live and we can figure out the rest.

Though only your favorite local bartender really knows the tipple that turns you on most, Vinepair is helping Americans pinpoint
state-by-state booze preferences with the United States of Alcohol drinking
map. No longer are there red states and blue states. There are beer states,
wine states, spirit states, and a few places where people just like their
moonshine, okay?

Apparently, folks down in Florida like
their rum and margaritas. Northern California, Oregon, and Washington are, not
surprisingly, keen on locally produced wine, while whiskey and bourbon go down
nicely in Kentucky and Tennessee. But, seriously, Midwesterners. Bud?

The map may not account for your nightly
Scotch on the rocks or secret passion for shots of Sambuca, but it feels fairly
accurate. Of course the Lone Star State digs Lone Star. Of course Coors rules in Colorado. Of
course Utah doesn’t really drink. Maybe it’s time to start
rethinking that big road trip to Coachella? Head over to Vinepair for a larger version of the map.
