1. World champion in beer consumption: A surprise!
Germany is the world champion in beer drinking — or so you might think, especially when you’re on the Wiesn. But it’s not the case. The Czechs have the highest per capita consumption of beer at 143.3 liters per year (2016). Whether Oktoberfest with its approx. 6 million liters of beer consumption is included or not, nothing changes the fact that, with 104 liters per person and year, Germany only ranks fourth in the beer drinker list, behind Namibia and Austria.
