    We're slipping everywhere- but this indicator is truly troubling:eek: We've been decisively overtaken by Asia in this critical category. To the ramparts- do your part and pump up those numbers!

    As Dr Strangelove almost said "Mr President- ve haff a beer tap gap!"

    Sorry but it's the downhill side of a short week!:wink:

    The key piece of information is that rising beer consumption is associated with growing economies. So, if we as a nation commit to doubling the amount of beer we drink, our economy will return to prosperity.

    Have to admire the sheer determination of the Czech Republic (174 liters per annually per adult). At this rate they'll get their own chapter in the Guinness Book of Records

    Well, Asia's population is greater than the Americas, so I guess it's proportionate.
