    Especially after 10 pints of beer and 3.5 bottles of wine….

    I have to say though if I was looking for a nation famed for their abstinence from beer, wine and other alcohol and remnowned for their good behaviour when visiting other countries, it probably would not be the Germans.

    Terry/Rich, the volume reference in the chart is to the quantity of pure ethyl alcohol, not the liquid containing it. So for beer, if you assumed a notional 5% ABV content, the 4.93 litres p.a. ascribed to the Brits translates to 98.6 litres of beer, or over 173 pints. That’s on top of the 33+ bottles of wine (at average 14% ABV), the 6 litres of spirits (at average 40%) and two-thirds of a litre of pure alcohol consumed by other means…

    Hmmmm

    Thanks Ian for your insight. I think the chart does show though that by and large the UK and Europe are failry advanced in terms of alcohol consumption. I wonder what the other is for Uganda?

    Yes it is Luddite attitudes of staff and complete acquiescence of the management. When will Top management get down to earning their fancy pay? Any worthy Brit is ashamed to be associated with such abuse of power.

    Good for you. Thats the sort of consumer response we need to see more of.
