The world’s top beer-consuming countries11th October, 2012 by Andy Young
Can you guess which country drinks the most beer per capita?
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has researched and published details of which countries consume the most alcohol per capita.
This information has also been broken down into beer, wines, spirits and overall alcohol consumption.
In publishing the report the WHO said its aim was to, “support Member States in collecting information in order to assist them in their efforts to reduce the harmful use of alcohol, and its health and social consequences.”
Dr Ala Alwan, WHO assistant director-general for Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health, added: “Many countries recognise the serious public health problems caused by the harmful use of alcohol and have taken steps to prevent the health and social burdens and treat those in need of care. But clearly much more needs to be done to reduce the loss of life and suffering associated with harmful alcohol use.”
But which countries consume the most beer? We’re pretty confident you’ll be surprised at who comes out on top.
