"A new study released by The Beer Institute puts New York at the bottom of the list when it comes to the number of people who drink beer."

"The Empire State places 48th out of all 50 states and Washington, D.C. for beer consumption per capita in 2012."

Is that kind of some sick joke?

According to WKBW, "People are drinking a lot less but drinking better quality," says Tucker Curtin, owner of Woody's Beach Club and Taqueria, as well as other local bars.

I beg to differ. Maybe it's just a Buffalo thing. If we were our own state, we would be #1.
