The drunkest city in America is right here in the Midwest, according to a list compiled by the website The Daily Beast.

The dubious title goes to Milwaukee, Wis.

The website found, on average, Milwaukee adults drink nearly 13 alcoholic drinks a month, and nearly 22 percent of those adults are considered binge drinkers.

The Daily Beast compared three factors when compiling the list, including average alcohol consumption per month, binge drinking levels and the rate of death related to alcoholic liver disease.

Rounding out the list of the top five drunkest cities are Fargo, San Francisco, Austin and Reno.
