How did you spend your Fourth of July? If you cracked opened a cold one, you helped make the Fourth of July America's Top Beer Holiday. 

The Beer Institute says at this time last year, the sales of beer topped all other beer sales during the rest of the year. Experts think this year's sales of beer topped all other beer sales during the rest of the year.

Experts think this year's sales could top $1 billion for the holiday.

The institute also updated its state ranking for beer buying. At the top of the list, North Dakota, New Hampshire, Montana, South Dakota and Wisconsin. New York actually falls near the bottom at number 48.
