"Drunkest City In America" Goes To Milwaukee

Just in time for New Year's Eve, Milwaukee is named the "Drunkest City in America." That's according to a list compiled by a website called The Daily Beast.

A recent national student shows Milwaukee adults take down more drinks than any other city in the country. On average, they drank nearly 13 alcoholic drinks a month. And according to "The Daily Beast," 21.8% of those adults are considered binge drinkers.

"The Daily Beast" says it compared three factors when compiling the list. They include average alcohol consumption per month, binge drinking levels, and the rate of death related to alcoholic liver disease.

Rounding out the top five drunkest cities are Fargo, San Francisco, Austin and Reno.

Cities known for their booze like New Orleans and Las Vegas ranked in the 20s and 30s. Some barely make the top 40 list.
