What Massachusetts towns are “the wettest?” I hit up the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission and counted them up! Using the most up-to-date info I could gather I compared the number of residents per town to the number of alcohol licenses licensed to the coordinating town giving us – THE WETTEST TOWNS IN MASSACHUSETTS.

If you’re looking to light it up, these are your towns – let’s count ’em down!
