Ever wondered which city in Colorado parties the hardest? Well, the folks at 24/7 Wall Street have an answer for you. To identify the the drunkest city in every state, the financial news and opinion website reviewed the percentage of men and women who reported binge drinking or heavy drinking in each of the state’s metro areas over the past year. Just as individual states report different drinking habits, so do the metropolitan areas within each state.

When it comes to Colorado, the drunkest city is...

> Drunkest city: Denver-Aurora-Lakewood
> Pct of MSA adults binge or heavy drinking: 19.0%
> Pct. of state adults binge or heavy drinking: 17.6%
> Pct of driving deaths alcohol related: 35.1%.


According to 24/7 Wall Street, "A higher share of adults in the Denver metro area drink in excess than in any of the six other metro areas across Colorado. Altogether, nearly one in five Denver adults report excessive drinking habits. In Colorado Springs, just 11% of adults do not drink in moderation. More than 35% of driving fatalities in the Denver area are alcohol related, one of only 21 cities on the list where this percentage exceeded 35%."

When it comes to the drunkest city in America, El Paso takes the cake...or, should I say bottle. To see the complete list of drunkest cities in America, click here.
