North Dakota third drunkest state in the US

I saw this article on Dead Spin. Not hard to believe, North Dakota is covered by snow, four-six months of every year. You can take a look at the data by clicking on this link.
Reuben Fischer-Baum, Dead Spin --The National Institute for Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) has released its 2014

report on alcohol consumption in the United States, with figures for per capita alcohol consumption updated through 2012. Converting various boozes to pure ethanol volumes, the researchers estimated that the country as a whole drank 2.33 gallons of alcohol per 14-or-older resident, a 2.2 percent increase from 2011. That's a lot of booze: 497 five-percent, 12-oz. beers or 98 bottles of 12-percent, 750-ml wine.

The report also broke down the data by state. Utah comes in last, of course, but it's sort of surprising to see just how far New Hampshire is in front of the pack. The state "consumes" 4.65 gallons of alcohol per capita, beating Delaware—the second-booziest state—by over a gallon.
