Which European countries tend to drink the most beer every year? The Czech Republic is well known as a haven for beer lovers, tracing its brewing history all the way back to the Břevnov Monastery in 993.
Today, Czechs are Europe’s biggest beer drinkers, consuming 143 litres per capita every year, according to the Brewers of Europe. Germany comes second with people drinking an average of 106 litres each year, just ahead of neighbouring Austria where they drink marginally less each.
The data shows Greece way behind in the consumption of beer, as it stands between the 30-50 litres of beer per capita, very close to Italy and other Mediterranean countries, which is understandable given the rich history in wine consumption.
