Winos Rejoice!

  • 20 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols


As The Denver Post reports, Denver is the drunkest city in America! Perhaps more surprising, Colorado Springs is #3.

In 2004, Men’s Health magazine named Denver the drunkest city in America.

In the upcoming December issue of Men’s Health, Denver is again named the No. 1 drunkest city – and to put a capper on it, we’re the “most dangerously drunk city.”

Colorado Springs comes in as the third drunkest city. Aurora is the 19th drunkest city.

“Today, Colorado once again leads the nation in its attitude towards alcohol – but now, the mandate seems to be ‘drink till you drop.'” writes Men’s Health.

    1. Get as loopy as you wish, no hangover.  Not especially great as in inhibition remover, as I recall.

      No hangover.  Just pop out of bed and go jogging.

  1. Cnn had a flash report that showed how states rated in terms of consumption. Obviously, Utah was #51 (14 gals of booze / person). But Colorado was middle of the road. ND, Mass, Minn, Wisc, etc. were all higher. As somebody who comes from the mid-west, I would be amazed if we really are the drunkest.

    1. the report was about Denver alone.

      Which implies that there is a whole lot of soberness in the rest of the state. 

      I saw a graphical presentation of that report.  Nevada has the highest rate of consumption (surprise!), Utah the lowest (surprise!).  Montana was way up there, and D.C. has the highest consumption of wine.  Yes, Colorado was average.

      1. It is spread out over a year. It really is not that much. And keep in mind that is Utah, where the bulk of that is drank by outsiders (generally ski visitors). I would guess that the bulk of Colorado’s ethanol is drank in ski resorts followed by the casinos.

        But as somebody who grew up partly on the ill/wisc border, I can tell you that Colorado is NOT a drunk state, and Denver even less so. Spend time in WI in the winter, and you will see lots of drinking.

        1. 14 gallons isn’t alot?  My wife and I together maybe go through a gallon of milk a month-maybe more around holidays so probably about 14 a year.  So to equate that to being the floor of the drinking amount, not the ceiling…dang, that just seems like a lot to me.  But, I am the token Mormon kid around here so I guess I need wake up and smell the hops.

          I wonder how many gallons Nevada consumes?

          1. Not very much.

            When I lived in Germany, little old ladies drank two pints a day.

            There is a cultural problem with youth binge drinking in the US and I wonder if this “Denver is a drunken city” reputation is related to CU’s reputation as a party school.  If so its unfair: that’s Boulder.
