In compiling the list, the website 24/7 Tempo used the following formula to calculate which city is the drunkest in each state:

24/7 Tempo reviewed the percentage of men and women over 18 who reported heavy or binge drinking in each state’s metropolitan areas, then singled out the city or metropolitan area with the highest rate.

After that data was crunched, one came out on top in Montana.  It wasn't the largest populated city either.  Time to dress up in maroon and white everyone.
