A new 2023 study is out, and Wisconsin has 10 of the top 20 drunkest cities in America. WPR

Not that Wisconsin needs to do anymore celebrating, but these numbers have changed in recent years. Back in 2016 Wisconsin has 12 of the top 20 drunkest cities. So two Wisconsin cities can't hold their liquor anymore I guess? CBS

So here's the study, the survey, the belly up to the bar info on this...A drink is considered 0.6% of pure alcohol. Here are examples:

  • 12 ounces of beer
  • 8 ounces of malt liquor
  • 5 ounces of wine
  • 1.5 ounces of 80-proof distilled spirits or liquor

So how much does your city consume, based on population and the how many people throw back? In Wisconsin, it's a lot.

Let's start with the "drunkest" city in America...Green Bay, Wisconsin. 26.5% of adults drink to excess. With a staggering 50.5% of driving deaths in Green Bay involving alcohol.
