HIGH POINT, N.C. — A software programmer has mapped the beer and wine consumption of all the states.

Rajesh Korde, who runs the Significant Digits blog, used data from the Beer Institute website to map each state’s beverage of choice.

He calculated the beer wine index by dividing the wine consumption by the beer consumption.

Based on his data, North Carolina is a beer state.

Korde also mapped whether states prefer beer or spirits.

North Carolina once again chose beer.
