Coloradans love their craft beer...and their campfire whiskey...and sure, why not some wine, too, and it's all being consumed far above sea level. It's the perfect combination for an awful hangover, which makes it no surprise that Colorado is reportedly one of the most hungover states in the country.

Based on Google search results for the term "hangover cure," Zippia determined that Colorado was likely the 5th most hungover state in the country.

At the top of the list was Alaska, followed by Wyoming. There was a tie for the least hungover state between Delaware and Arkansas.

It's no secret Coloradans love their booze – after all, the state has the 4th most breweries per capita in the country. Believe it or not, there are more than 400 breweries in the Centennial State, meaning that there's a brewery for roughly every 13,550 people. It's also common for Coloradans to work booze into their outdoor recreation plans in the form of a summit beer or a ski day bar break.

If consuming lots of booze in Colorado, be aware of the effects of elevation. With an average elevation of 6,800 feet statewide, expect the booze to hit a bit harder and for those hangovers to be a little more difficult to overcome. Always drink plenty of water and utilize multi-vitamins to make sure your body has a good chance of keeping up with the drinks you down. Consume responsibly.
