Then again, people are turning plywood shacks into bars so the number might be a little off.

I guess what I'm saying is that Wisconsin being dubbed America's #1 Party State is not really all that shocking and kind of sort of well-earned.

Wise Voter:

Wisconsin is known for its bustling college towns and delicious cheese curds; it’s no wonder why this state tops the list. Wisconsin has an impressive number of bars per capita, ranking third among all states.

The state also consumes an average of 4 gallons of alcohol per person each year – more than any other state in America. Coupled with its strong culture of collegiate celebrations and sports fandom makes Wisconsin the perfect place to party the night away!

Wisconsinites have built a well-deserved reputation for knowing how to have a good time. You can travel to virtually anywhere in the state, and you’re guaranteed the best of the best when it comes to grub, pubs and clubs.

I'll add that I've had a good time or two in Beloit and Minocqua so let's add them to the list also.
