This Northern Colorado Town is the Drunkest in the State
Colorado certainly knows how to party when it comes to adult beverages. What can I say... We love our booze. Craft breweries and craft distilleries are dotted all over Colorado's map.
While I am not one for getting hammered, that doesn't mean that other Coloradans aren't up for testing their limits on alcohol consumption. The risk of a hangover is too great and I simply cannot recover like I used to. Ah. Ain't getting old fun?
Fort Collins Likes to Drink ... A Lot
According to 247wallst.com, Fort Collins has been ranked as Colorado's drunkest city. With a population of more than 160,000, The Choice City has a tendency to drink heavily. The data shows that 22.2 percent of Fort Collins adults drink excessively.
While we don't mind those who love to party, you should do so safely and never get behind the wheel after drinking. Driving deaths that involve alcohol make up a third of all driving deaths in Fort Collins.
247WallSt.com based the data on men and women who were over the age of 18 and reported heavy or binge drinking. The Centers for Disease Control states that drinking heavily is consuming five drinks or more for men and four drinks or more for women on one occasion.
