While most people that are not from Abilene that move here complain that Abilene has a lot of churches. Nobody complains about how many bars or alcohol dispensing facilities are in Abilene.

The most broken law in Texas by drivers is running a red light and coming in at a close second place is driving while intoxicated. So, I began to wonder what is the most broken law in Texas that does not involve driving.

When I discovered the number one MOST broken law in Texas, I was completely blown away. I thought that it might have been bar fights, domestic abuse, or even animal abuse due to the number of cattle, sheep, and horses we have in Texas.

But I wasn't even close the number one most broken non-driving law in Texas never even crossed my mind. Can you guess what it is? It appears that we Texans love to drink in public too!

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
