What Regions Drank The Most

End of the Year

Its the end of the year, and what that usually entails is a whole slew of “end of the year lists”. Top 10 this… top 38 that… top 69 (heeheehee) this and that…. Top 314.181928102810 Pies, etc.

We are going to post a few this year. In the past we’ve kinda shied away from posting these sorts of articles, because the metrics and information is kind of… biased in a way. Its basically just reading off Untappd’s information and lists and going with it. For example, recently Breweries in PA did a final end of the year Top 10 Pennsylvania Breweries listing article, using Untappd’s information, and well… it was received as well as you can imagine. Mainly because they didn’t put in any filters or restrictions or limits to it. So just before the list was posted, Country Club Brewing Company (see an article about them here: Country Club Brewing Company Announces Opening) had their grand opening. They had roughly 1,000 check – ins on the Untappd app, and being a grand opening most of them were very favorable (mostly four caps or better). So needless to say this put a lot of readers and breweries themselves up in arms about it. It actually listed them at number three (out of ten). (The other thing that irked most was that Other Half Brewing Company was listed, when they have several non – Pennsylvanian locations.)

But… I’m gonna go out on a limb and use Untappd to post some of these lists. If nothing else we can look back at them as just data charts and analyze them for the statistics. At best, they prompt some conversation and discussion (and we all know how well that goes on the internet). So first up, let’s take a look at The Top 10 Regions for Most Check – Ins.

The Top 10 Most Checked-In Regions of 2022

So how drunk do you think your area and region is? Do you think your state had the most check ins? Well lets find out!

Remember, all of this information is correlated by Untappd and is dependent on their app. So its just analyzing, and adding up all of the check ins on their app. I will post a link back to Untappd’s full article afterwards. But first, let’s get to the list:

  • 10. North Carolina (United States of America) – 1,762,020 Check Ins
  • 9. Florida (United States of America) – 1,768,811 Check Ins
  • 8. Ohio (United States of America) – 1,844,993 Check Ins
  • 7. Illinois (United States of America) – 1,905,864 Check Ins
  • 6. Bayern (Munich, Germany) – 1,999,890 Check Ins
  • 5. Massachusetts (United States of America) – 2,393,759 Check Ins
  • 4. Pennsylvania (United States of America) – 2,582,779 Check Ins
  • 3. Vlaanderen (Belgium) – 2,903,569 Check Ins
  • 2. New York (United States of America) – 3,902,956 Check Ins
  • 1. California (United States of America) – 4,695,384 Check Ins

(All statistics as of December 9th, 2022. All statistics are from January 1st – December 9th 2022).

Congratulations Pennsylvania

Since we’re based out of Central PA (Harrisburg / Hershey / Hummelstown area, to be even more precise really), I’m going to highlight Pennsylvania and talk about how impressive it is to be number four on the list. Not sure how GOOD of an impressive thing it is, but it is impressive. Everyone always talks about Wisconsin and Milwaukee being the ‘alcoholics capital’ of the United States (and the world), but they don’t even hit this top 10 list. Now, that can be for many reasons – lack of check ins, lack of using the app, drinking liquor instead of beer, etc. But if you watch Red Letter Media you would think they got us beat on beer too (plus they have New Glarius Brewing Company, so why not?).

But, fourth place is nothing to sneeze at – in the sense of volume of check ins. Given that New York and California easily has Pennsylvania beat on population, its quite impressive. 2.5 million check ins is also a lot of check ins.

Good job Drunkies!

Untappd’s Article

For more information, you can check out Untappd’s article and blog where they break down the data a bit more, and discuss their own choices and links to curated travel guides to each of these regions.

Typically they list a few breweries key to each state / region after their usage in the above list. For Pennsylvania they discuss Human Robot and Dancing Gnome breweries. (Read our article about Human Robot’s Milko Pour here: Human Robot – The Milk Tube.)

So they picked a brewery at each end of the state – Human Robot for Philadelphia and Dancing Gnome for Pittsburgh. But there are a ton of great and fantastic breweries spread out throughout the state – many of them here in the middle of the state along the Susquehanna. Breweries like Troegs Independent Craft Brewing, Boneshire Brew Works, Tattered Flag Brewery and Distillery, Selin’s Grove Brew Pub, Shy Bear Brewing, Ever Grain Brewing Company, Mellow Mink Brewing, and so many more (and those are just the ones more in the Central PA area and located closer to the Susquehanna). (Check out our article about Brewery Tour and Brewery Visit to Mellow Mink: Brewery Visit – Mellow Mink.)

Thanks For Reading

Thank you everyone for checking out the article. We enjoy having you come to the site! In the next few days I’ll be posting a few more lists and variants and such. So be sure to stop back out each day for that.

Like I said in our previous post, lots still going on here at the blog despite it being the end of the year. I’m also heading back to work in a few days time, so things will be picking up work wise as well. So it’ll be holidays, work, baby Scarlet, and the blog. Busy. Busy. Busy. But, like I did say on the last post, Josh and I were invited out to Central PA Pour to do a podcast, which was an absolute blast. We filmed and recorded that on the 18th, and that will be going live just before New Years. So look for that. Should be entertaining and fun. We had a blast.

Cheers All!
