Congratulations, Oregon: You’re the 15th Drunkest State in America

According to a new study, Oregonians consume more alcohol—and do so more frequently—than the national average.

Oregonians are prolific drinkers.

According to a new study by personal security site SafeHome, Oregon ranks No. 15 for drunkest U.S. state.

The study compared states by how much alcohol is consumed, how many adults drink regularly and number of craft breweries per capita.

Overall, around 60 percent of Americans said they drink regularly. The average American consumes 2.3 gallons of alcohol annually.

In Oregon, 62.86 percent of adults drink, and the average person drinks 2.76 gallons of booze a year.

The state also ranked No. 5 for the number of craft breweries per-capita, at 8.8 per 100,000.

The  drunkest place in the study was the District of Columbia, while the least drunk was Arkansas.
