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 Oktoberfest. But it’s not the case. The Czechs have the highest per capita consumption of beer at 181.9 liters per year (2020). Whether the Oktoberfest, with its approximately 6 million liters of beer consumption, is included or not does not change the fact that Germany, with 92.4 liters per person per year, only ranks fifth in the beer drinking table, behind Austria, Poland and Romania.
