Apparently Americans really needed a drink last year. The country as a whole drank almost seven BILLION gallons of beer in 2017, according to a new report from Vinepair.

Who drank the most? New Hampshire at 40.6 gallons per capita. That means 40.6 gallons for every person or roughly 433 12-ounce cans or bottles of beer. That's more than eight beers a week...and that's a lot of beer.

Montana is well known for it's drinking, so where did we come in on the list? How about number 2 with a score of 39.4. Yeah, we were just that close to taking the number one spot in the country.

The rest of the top 10 states that drank the most per capita are: North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Maine, Nebraska, Nevada, Vermont and Texas.

The 10 states that drank the least beer per capita are: Utah, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts and Arkansas.
