List of U.S. State Beverages

This is a list of state beverages as designated by the various states of the United States.[1] The first known usage of declaring a specific beverage a "state beverage" within the US began in 1965 with Ohio designating tomato juice as their official beverage. The most popular choice for state beverage designation is milk (or a flavored milk) with 21 out of the 28 states (26 states and 2 territories with official beverages) making milk their official beverage, while Rhode Island chose coffee-flavored milk. Alabama and Virginia are the only two U.S. states to have alcoholic beverages as their state beverages.
