I was kicking back, in a semi-intoxicated state after downing half of my shipment in one session, and began to contemplate just where the real serious beer drinkers of the world live. So, oh mighty and wise malty dog, can you tell me specifically what countries have the highest beer drinking consumption levels? By the by, I think your cute.
Okay. You’ve got my undivided attention. To be blunt…compliments will get your questions answers and more importantly, they might get you invited over for some treats and heavy petting if you know what I mean! Woof! Woof! We could set a few consumption records ourselves. So, basically, who drinks the most? One time, I drank 17 bowls of Barley Wine and woke up naked in chicken coop with a half eaten Snickers Bar in my paw and two French Poodles at my side, but that’s a different story. The 1995 edition of the Guinness Book of Records list Germany with the highest per capita beer consumption at 142.7 litres per year. However, prior to the reunification of Germany and the split of Czechoslovakia into the Czech Republic and Slovakia, West Germany and Czechoslovakia were nearly tied in the vicinity of 140 to 150 litres per capita. And it is conceded that the per capita consumption is higher in the Czech Republic than in Slovakia. Therefore, based solely on canine-logic, and without the benefit of data or statistics, I'm believe that the Czech Republic has the highest per capita consumption of beer, estimated to be over 150 litres per capita. That is my personal opinion, which should be taken with a grain of barley, but then again, I am pretty damn smart. Hope that helps. Love ya babe.
