St. Louis: 8th Drunkest City

Categories: Lists

St. Louis has made yet another ranking in the Daily Beast, this one for Drunkest Cities in America. According to the list makers at the online magazine, metro St. Louis ranks as the 8th drunkest city in all the land -- nestled between No. 9 San Diego and No. 7 Austin.

And why is that? Because research indicates that the average person around here consumes 14.4 drinks per month. Moreover, 6.1 percent of us are what the Center for Disease Control considers to be "heavy drinkers." Eighteen percent of us binge drink.

Frankly, I'm a bit disappointed. You'd think that the city with one of the world's largest breweries (Anheuser Busch) would be No. 1 in the rankings. But, nooo. That title went to Boston. Milwaukee (that other "beer city") came in third.

The numbers are skewed because in 2011 I drank most of my Budweiser in St Louis.

This story is just down right RACIST! Unless we're talking about Whites, then it's okay. So if you're going to HATE make sure you're out there HATIN on Y T. Cuz Y T uses super double secret methods to make blacks fail at whatever they try and makes jews stub their toes or whatever other dirty trick befalls a minority you can darn well bet Y T's behind it.

Given the amount of empty 12 pack boxes and empty liquor containers strewn along the roadways in the area, one wouldn't certainly think that the area would have finished higher than 8th?

Thanks for the update but does it include us st louisans deployed overseas, I think not. So in fact we are number one!

I remember when I was kid when my family first moved to the St. Louis area. My parents used to refer to the native St. Louisans as Bohunks. I didn't understand the term until I got older. Now I totally get it. Most St. Louisans are extremely low class regardless of whether they have money or not because you can't buy class or sophistication. St. Louisans are fat, vulgar, obnoxious, arrogant, brutish and thuggish, lazy, very dirty especially when it comes to litter, poorly educated (even with college degrees they're still idiots), they're poor speakers and unable to use the English language properly, they're opionated, LOUD..... This comes from their extremely poor ancestral DNA. Mostly peseant hunkys from Germany, Italy, Eastern Europe, former slave colonies from the South, and of course the list includes the extremely bullyish bohunk jews with their ugly bohunk jew features - large nose, wiry hair, beady eyes, short and round.... All in all St. Louisans are an extremely ugly and inferior DNA pool. I wouldn't shed a tear if a nuclear weapon or a natural disaster were to wipe out the bulk of the population.

Sam Adams > AB.  People want to drink better stuff.  Makes sense to me.

I'm surprised that the article didn't mention Iran so that there would be another justification for starting a new war with them.

That is funny!  I do admit I have never had as much fun as I did growing up in St. Louis and drinking.  Families would congregate at taverns and beer gardens and children would play.  I hate to dwell on one aspect of the best hidden secret city in the U.S. because there are so many outstanding aspects.  This post was just one person above youstink or blowchunks (obviously ignorant) trying to cause a stir.  Everyone else knows better. He is less than zero.

I think you are suffering from little weenie syndrome, but that is just in my humble Bohunk opinion.  If I had to guess, you came from work for lunch and caught a Bohunk on top of the old lady pumpin' and sweatin'.  If I were you I would hate St. Louis as well.  Lol, bet the old lady likes it here:-)

And you and anyone agreeing have a very easy solution available--MOVE.

Nice try to get a rise out of the best city in the USA.  You sound stupid.  Google Bohunk and learn something about Europe.  Your writing is with poor grammar and punctuation.  That made me laugh, but you are more ridiculous than anything.  Oh, it is St. Louisian, just as a start to help you. You are such a bigot.  I am not Jewish (capital J), but hope many see this.  You are a pity.

I have lived in multiple US cities and a few foreign countries. I have a PhD from a prestigious university and moved here to teach. I have been pleasantly surprised by St. Louis and its citizens.  They are bright, friendly and a lot better than residents of many other cities, both large and small. Granted, there are those that are less than bright and friendly, but that is the nature of the human condition. You obviously don't belong in the bright or friendly category, so based on your own vitriolic tirade, you are the "perfect" St. Louis resident. But I bet there are a lot of truly vile places you would fit in even better, so leave already and spew your hate someplace else.

I had intended to take the high road in my reply to your disgusting comments, but the statements that you made are so blatantly racist and xenophobic that I can only see red. How dare you? We don't want anti semitic racists such as yourself in our fair city. If you don't like it here then go crawl back under whatever misbegotten rock that you were hatched from. Just be sure to stop by the Southside first so that I can administer a lesson in keeping your mouth shut.

As a St. Louisan, I take grave exception to your foul description of the natives of this fine city. Where are you from, and what gives you the right to speak so ill of our citizens? I am a South St. Louis Boy born and bred, I carry a 4.0 grade average, I can quote Shakespeare and Churchill, I scored in the 98th percentile on the SATs, have worked as a mason for thirty years, am proud of my city and my fellow citizens. I will also roll your disrespectful ass all over a parking lot if you care to show up. Do not abuse our good nature, we are proud, but very vindictive here in the heartland. Obviously you come from a place where respect and courtesy have no meaning. Such foul mouthed diatribe will not be tolerated from the likes of you. You sir, are a smug and self important ass. You could do well to learn some manners before you besmirch the good people of St. Louis. I will say this, if it is Bohunk treatment that you are looking for, then I am more than willing to oblige you. Didn't your Daddy teach you never to piss off a bricklayer? If he didn't, then your education was even mare lacking than is apparent in your comment. Come down to beautiful Soulard, and I will show you a time.

Isn't the United States called the melting pot?  I am a native of St. Louis and it is the best of many places I have lived.  Bohunk is a nickname of someone of Bohemian descent.  I am German and Irish.  Guess that makes me a germy, potato eater?  Yawn.  Bohunks bores me.
