Even though there is a lot of beer is brewed in Baltimore, we’re nowhere near the top consumer for beer in the nation. In fact, Maryland saw no change from 2011 to 2012 according to the Beer Institute. They found that people in Maryland drank about 23.2 gallons of beer in 2012. The numbers in consumption have remained almost stagnant. We may not drink as much as the rest of the nation, but we are the originator of the iconic Natty Boh man, aptly named Mr. Boh.

The Beer Institute also found that people in North Dakota drank twice as much as Marylanders. They’re the top ranked state and clock in at around 45.8 gallons per person. New Hampshire got bumped from the top slot in 2012. The Beer Institute also found that beer consumption rose 1.5 in 2012.
Maryland fell to 25th in beer shipments while California kept its No. 1 spot with 22.32 million barrels of beer shipped in 2012. So while we’re almost dead last in consumption, we’re still represented somewhat in terms of how much beer we ship out.
