Country #3 – Austria
The number three spot will be a surprise to many (except perhaps the Austrians themselves) with a per capita beer consumption of 106 litres per annum. Austria is perhaps more famous for being a wealthy, skiing country that created cultural icons such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Sigmund Freud, rather than a land of beer gulping. Other interesting facts about Austria? The country has the highest rate of overweight men in the EU, but the lowest rate of overweight women. One can therefore only assume it’s the guys that are drinking all the beer!
