Slate - Blowfish, a “hangover cure” that promises relief after a night of heavy drinking, recently conducted a poll with AMP, a third-party research firm, to learn about people’s drinking habits across the U.S. The survey included 5,249 drinkers over the age of 21 from all 50 states and Washington, D.C. For the map below, participants from each state who said they preferred to drink beer chose their top brew from a list of 18 options (and could submit their own selection).

Even if only 18 beers were listed, I think it’s upset city all across America that Blue Moon is the new king of beers. When in the world did this happen? So now we have a beer served with fruit in it as the #1 choice for the land of the free and the home of the brave. But if we are in the trust tree, I love blue moon. I probably would have voted for it too but told my friends I voted bud heavy. There’s just something about a refreshing blue moon and that little orange wedge that really hits the spot the way other beers can’t. It’s kind of like how we know how delicious a mike’s hard lemonade is, but absolutely will never drink one because it is for gayballs only. Unless nobody is looking. What, I thought we were in the trust tree in the nest, were we not?

And check out these rankings they give the area:

Maryland 50/51, Virginia 48/51, but DC 5/51. Mind is absolutely rattled. What does DC know that Maryland and Virginia don’t? What are they doing right that we are doing wrong? It’s embarrassing and as the newly appointed GM of the state, I need to do something about it. We need a veteran drinking presence in Baltimore. Someone to rally the troops when they don’t want to take another shot. I will trade two freshman smokes from Towson to DC for one veteran Georgetown smoke who drank herself from an 8 to a 6 and a smoke to be named later. Savvy GM moves like that will help us get out of the cellar.
