South Dakotans have been known to tip a few back from time to time, but one city stands above the rest, and it's only 60 miles from Sioux Falls.

Is it surprising that this town is the drunkest in the entire state? You be the judge.

Matt Surelee Charts recently asked its followers where the most intoxicated city in each U.S. state is located, and the results are pretty eye-opening.

Take a look at the chart below and see where the drunkest city in South Dakota is.

That's right, the city of Brookings takes the honor as the drunkest place in the Mount Rushmore State. Why is that the case? Well, one can guess that it has something to do with Brookings being a college town. And let's face it, college towns typically have a higher drinking rate than other cities.

For example, Iowa City is home to the University of Iowa and takes the top spot in that state. In Nebraska, number one goes to Lincoln, which is another big-time college town, as it's home to the University of Nebraska.

The funniest on the entire map has to go to the state of Wisconsin, where it doesn't mention a specific town, but rather just says "All of Them". Go home Wisconsin, you're drunk.

As far as states go, South Dakota lies smack dab in the middle at number 25. To see the full list of drunkest states, check out this article from Think Business.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
