They're the "Irish" of the US.
Something amiss. Drinking beer and no "Cheeseheads"!?!
I'm from northern Wisconsin. Every time I hear the evening news, I start drinking. When the heat bills come in the winter, I drink. When the electric bill comes in the summer for air conditioning, I drink.
With all this good Wisconsin beer, I'm contributing to my home state's economy. Actually, in Wisconsin, drinking beer is a hobby? We soak our bratwurst in beer before grilling it. We marinate beef or other meats in beer before cooking it.
I've saved a lot of money by bringing beer home rather than going to a bar, since you can't smoke in a bar anymore! How can you enjoy a beer without a cigarette?
Besides manufactoring beer in the state, we use beer to boil our brats, make batter for our cheese curds, onion rings, and fried fish (which I might add is a lot with our tradition of having a Fish Fry every Friday year round), and even use beer as a social greeting. I guess if you want to get picky about consuming beer vs. drinking it straight out of the bottle or can, maybe then Wisconsin is behind these other states but in raw consumption, I find it hard to believe.
Let them in, you'll have a ball!....then when you want them to go, just say "Da Bears are gonna wax Rodgers this year". They'll shed a tear and leave begrudgingly (because they know you still have beer).
No worries, pop open another, they'll come back! (lose the Lutefisk though, guys)
Wisconsin is #6 by the way. They fell in beer consumption as wine consumption has grown quite a bit over the time frame surveyed.
There is plenty to do in Vt while we drink beer. Most Real Vermonters don't drink craft beer,
we cook with it. The good ole boys in the 359 gallon club usually have a blue or silver can. Get your
facts strait. The 35.9 gallon capita is the flat lander Vt club.
