Texans can drink their beer - a lot of it. I've seen it with my own eyes. I'll admit, many of my college days were about trying to get my keg filled for the weekend coming up. Some crazy times with friends, that's for sure. Beer and wine are just the start; Texans love their mixed drinks too. If you add it all up, that's a ton of drinking going on in the Lone Star State.

In their article, you'll find the top cities that made the "hall of fame" when it comes to alcohol consumption. Several criteria went into determining the list, including:

  • Number of bars
  • Number of wineries
  • Number of liquor stores
  • Each city’s divorce rate
