Depending on who's info you use, Maine is either the 8th drunkest or 12th drunkest state in the country. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse Mainers drink 30 beers per-person per-year. I think I hit my quota for the year by 2AM New Years Day.

Anyway, we love booze in the 207. But which towns constantly have their party pants on? Based on:

  • 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

Tweets within a city also were considered. Tweets using the hashtag:

  • #Drunk
  • #Party
  • #Beer
  • #Wine
  • #Cocktails

All of that info was tallied to find The Drunkest Cities in Maine:

  1. Portland
  2. Rockland
  3. Naples
  4. Augusta
  5. Kennebunk
  6. South Portland
  7. Kittery
  8. Belfast
  9. Ellsworth
  10. Bangor
