Balancing the book

Germans drink less beer this year than they did last year, Reuters reports. The average consumption per capita this year is estimated as 112,5 liters which is 3,5 liters less than 2006. The decline has steadily continued since the top consumption of 156 liters in the 1980’ies.

2006 was the only year since 1998 when consumption increased. However, that must have been thanks to foreign guests at the football World Champ tournament. Germans are far behind Czech Republic and Ireland in drinking beer.

All of this makes me concerned of the health of my German friends. And puts me under a special obligation to drink that much more these last days of 2007. Just to balance the book as an act of solidarity.
