America may be all about baseball and apple pie, but beer certainly belongs in the discussion.

The very fake sounding, but very real group Beer Institute, has come out with a list of the states that drank the most beer per capita in 2012.

The fine people of North Dakota have extra reason to go out and buy a few cases this Fourth of July because it took the top spot, ahead of Vermont.

Utah, with a large Mormon population, finished dead last, ahead of Connecticut.

Independence Day is the nation’s biggest beer-selling holiday, so you know the coolers will certainly be filled to the brim this year.

Every American over the age of 21 guzzled down slightly less than one 12-ounce beer daily in 2012 – that’s about 300 beers a year.

Here’s a look at the 10 states that drank the most beer in 2012:

1. North Dakota
2.
New Hampshire
3.
Montana
4.
South Dakota
5.
Wisconsin
6.
Nevada
7.
Vermont
8.
Nebraska
