The 10 Drunkest Cities In California


Bud Tapman, RoadSnacks

It’s not always the college towns and bigger cities that are getting ‘California drunk’ the most.

Is there anything wrong with being called the drunkest city in your state?drunk

Especially in California, which is right in the middle in the nation in terms of the amount of beer and spirits every year. So someone has to pick up the slack, right? And boy do these cities below.

How do you decide how much a place drinks? By the number of available places to buy booze, and by how often people are talking about drinking, that’s how.

Plus, we thought why not add in a stereotype? Studies have indicated that when one or both partners in a marriage are alcoholics, that couple is three times more likely to divorce.

So, hold our beers and watch this. After analyzing all cities with a decent amount of people in them, we came up with this list as The Drunkest Cities in California:

  1. Santa Monica
  2. Santa Barbara
  3. Napa
  4. Pasadena
  5. Sacramento
  6. Newport Beach
  7. Oakland
  8. Livermore
  9. San Mateo
  10. El Cajon

What drunken criteria did we use?

  • Number of bars and pubs per capita
  • Number of wineries per capita
  • Number of liquor stores per capita
  • Each city’s drunk related tweets within the last week
  • Each city’s divorce rate

For geo-located tweets, we measured the following raw number of tweets that came from within a city’s general area: #Drunk, #Party, #Beer, #Wine and #Cocktails

Note: For the sake of getting reliable numbers, we counted places within a city’s border, as well as within a short driving distance.
