We already knew that... but now everyone knows thanks to Wallet Hub's story on 2019's Best Cities for St. Patrick's Day Celebrations.

Wallet Hub used a bunch of facts and figures to create this list and we are loving it.

According to their study, the top 15 cities in the U.S. for green beer and shamrocking are:

  1. Chicago
  2. Philadelphia
  3. Madison
  4. Boston
  5. Tampa
  6. Naperville
  7. New York
  8. Pittsburgh
  9. ROCKFORD
  10. Dayton
  11. Milwaukee
  12. Cleveland
  13. Minneapolis
  14. Buffalo
  15. Omaha

Not only did we grab a top spot but Naperville, Madison and Milwaukee did too. Take that Chicago... sure you're still number one but there are so many reason to bring your leprechauns to other Midwestern cities.

Get this... one of the reasons Rockford made the list is because in the entire country, we have the third lowest average beer price.

How are you celebrating St. Patrick's Day this year?
