recently did a deep dive to discover the 100 cities across the United States that were the booziest. They contacted the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the University of Washington Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

They considered the stats on binge drinking, excessive drinking, alcohol-impaired driving deaths, and death rates from alcohol-related illnesses. Only one Connecticut city was on that list. Can you guess which one? It was Bridgeport that ranked 63. The following were the Top 5 Booziest Cities in America. For the complete list, click on

  • Reno, Nevada
  • Denver, Colorado
  • Billings, Montana
  • Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • Fargo, North Dakota

The following were the least booziest cities across the country;
