We're #13, We're #13, We're #13!

According to Japanese brewing powerhouse Kirin, the #1 country in per capita beer consumption is The Czech Republic. Ireland, Germany, Australia and Austria round out the Top 5. The USA comes in down (but not out)at #13 with our adult population consuming about 2 and a half bottles a week on average. Two and a half bottles per week? Someone's not trying very hard. The Czechs are beating us senseless! They average twice as much beer per day than Americans. What is wrong with you people?!?!?! Start sucking up more suds-- NOW!

On a more uplifting note. Americans are #2 in total consumption of the brewer's art. Ranked #1 is China, but only because there are so darn many of them. They don't even make the Top 35 in per capita beer guzzling.
