New England States Rank Among The Most Hungover
Well, New Year’s Eve and the holidays are behind us, but that doesn’t mean the partying has stopped. Nor has the waking up and feeling the aftermath of bad decisions. BetKentucky recently detailed the states in the country where people are most likely to feel hungover and two New England states are atop the list.
In order to determine which states have the most people waking up with that “what happened last night?” feeling. BetKentucky dove deep into five specific categories. They analyzed Google Trends on hangover remedies, number of bars, alcohol consumption by gallons, percentage of the population who admitted to binge drinking, number of breweries and liquor stores/wineries in the state.
Vermont Ranked 4th and New Hampshire Ranked 5th Most Hungover States
These two states comfortably lay snuggled right next to each other geographically. Apparently they can also comfort each other in nursing hangovers.
On Vermont, BetKentucky states, “as the state boasting the most breweries, wineries, and distilleries and ranking second for overall alcohol consumption, it makes sense to see it score so highly in our research.”
Furthermore, Vermont has its own Brewery Association. Zero Gravity and Long Trail Brewery remain among the most popular.
As for New Hampshire, Bet Kentucky says, “The Granite State did rank highest for alcohol consumption.” What worked against New Hampshire, and why it did not rank even higher, was that the state ranked the lowest in terms of the number of bars. Like Vermont, however, New Hampshire is loaded with breweries. In fact, there are over 90 of them in the state. Unlike Vermont, New Hampshire also has more populated metro areas like Portsmouth and Nashua. In addition, Hampton Beach is full of nightlife, especially in the summer and fall months.
If you are curious about how the other New England states fared in terms of your likelihood of waking up hungover, Maine was next, ranking #12. Rhode Island was #16, and Massachusetts hit #30. Connecticut was the lowest-ranked hangover in New England state, finishing at #43.
