DENVER — The Mile High City has landed 15th on a list of the 25 drunkest cities in the United States.

Drinking is popular during the holiday season with all the parties, champagne toasts, winter brews and eggnog.

But the fact is people drink more in some parts of the country than others as part of everyday life.

The Daily Beast pulled data from Experian Marketing Service on the average number of alcoholic drinks adults say they consume per month in each metro area.

Data on the percentage of residents who consider themselves binge drinkers and heavy drinkers was taken from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Boston ranked as the drunkest city, but the statistics for Denver weren’t far behind.
