The COVID-19 pandemic definitely did not do wonders for our stress levels. It did, however, do wonders for alcohol sales nationwide. That is not something to celebrate and, drinking to excess is most certainly not something to celebrate either.

Alcohol can be fun, and if consumed in moderation and without a need to operate a motor vehicle, it can be fun and perfectly safe - when things get out of hand, it's the exact opposite.

Now, the website 24/7 Wall Street looked into what county in each U.S. state was the drunkest, and what city is the drunkest. The results might surprise you a bit. According to their research, the results show Johnson County is our drunkest.

The drunkest county in Iowa is Johnson. About 24.6% of adults there report excessive drinking, which ranks 61 among all 3,142 counties in the country

What's alarming about this is Johnson County is the home to the University of Iowa. Whether there's a connection there or not is not mentioned in the article.

As far as Iowa's drunkest specific city, well that is also located in Eastern Iowa, according to the same study.

24/7 Wall Street found Dubuque to be our drunkest city with an excessive drinking rate of 24%. While not good news, per se, overall, Iowa was ranked the 16th lowest in excessive drinking. Montana was ranked the highest, and Indiana was ranked the lowest.

In the end, safe drinking and not excessively drinking are enough to make anyone the MVP of the party.
