Pennsylvania passes Illinois in annual beer consumption

The Washington D.C.-based Beer Institute said the per capita consumption rate fell from about 56 six packs in 2007 to about 53 six packs in 2011. The decrease has sent Illinois tumbling out of its long-held No. 5 spot in the nation in beer shipments. After California, Texas, Florida, and New York. Illinois now ranks sixth behind an apparently more brew-thirsty Pennsylvania.
