Montanans drink a lot of beer. And people in Billings love a good microbrew.

In fact, a new Vinepair survey revealed Americans drink about 6.3 billion gallons of beer a year, and Montana is near the top of U.S. states that consume that much barley and hops per capital. According to the study, only the state of New Hampshire drinks more beer than Montana. We drink an average of 1.6 gallons of ethanol per capita, which puts us second in the nation compared to 1.79 gallons for New Hampshire. Keep in mind New Hampshire doesn't have an alcohol tax. Utah ranked at the bottom of the list, with only 0.58 gallons of ethanol per capita*, according to the survey.
