Per capita beer consumption

If you are sober enough to decipher the below truncation, you will be able to see which country drinks the most beer. If you are NOT sober enough, then go see the chart here.

To this, we add Soubriquet at 112.1 liters per annum. This ranks him before Australia, but after Germany.

  1. Soubriquet sadly reports a slip in the rankings over the last year.
    His doctors, in their wily wisdom, have prescribed medications that are somewhat hostile when taken by a frequent imbiber... the warnings were severe and scary.
    As a result Soubriquet' beer consumption has plummeted, leaving him soberly wistful, dreaming of those days when he'd search "Beer Paradise" for plunder, coming away with dusty bottles of cellar-matured Kriek. A favourite, at one time was a beer called "Delirium Tremens", sigh. A nice big mug of Hoegaarden would go down nicely right now.


You must be at least minimally sober to comment!
