Please click through this photo gallery of the 25 countries that consume the most alcohol per capita. The United States is in the mix, though just with an honorable mention because it's where we live.
Almost all the top 25 are European nations. Is this because these societies have been around longer than us, and so they've been drinking up a better tolerance for booze?
That would suggest countries grown out of Ancient Near Eastern civilizations would be the ones who drink the most, though. But large Muslim populations in that area might have been prevention for that.
Of course Germany legitimately made the list. Are you surprised any of these are the world's top drinking countries?
