What are the drunkest counties in Illinois, a question that consumes my brain daily.

Thankfully there is ONLY to answer this burning question. Plus Winnebago County is not included in the list, congrats are in order.

Growing up in Stephenson County (Freeport) is something I do take pride in, but it looks like I should crack one open to celebrate. Twenty three percent of people in Stephenson County are excessive and or binge drinkers according to this list. That's a pretty good chunk Pretzel City, I'm looking squarely at you. Stephenson County also includes Lena, Dakota, and Pearl City. I may or may not have had a drink in each of these towns. Wait, was I part of the problem?

Here is the rest of the list, the 10 Drunkest Counties in Illinois, cheers!
