North Dakota has the most bars per capita in the United States. There’s one bar for every 1,620 North Dakotans. It beats out Montana and also puts North Dakota well above Minnesota, which ranks 17th. Wisconsin comes in third with 3,043 bars for the 5.7 million that live in the state. That translates to one bar for every 1,877 Wisconsinite.  Impressive, but the Duluth/Superior Metro area has also come out on top.
