A very happy National Beer Day to all. There's no law that says you have to start your day with coffee!
LOL, I wouldn't take this data to the bank. The methodology listed has some issues, they used beer prices from local supermarkets and then the total alcohol consumption (not beer) from the WHO.America isn't even in the top ten in beer consumption. Americans need to get their act together and drink more beer!

Czechs Are #1
Difficult to believe a guy could do that, stay slender his whole life, and live to 83Paul Newman looked better than just about any other human being for many years and drank a case of beer every single day. His famous quote, "it's no coincidence there are 24 hours in a day and 24 beers in one case."
There are so many good beers in the Czech Republic (Czechia). Of the widely available beers in the U.S., Pilsner Urquell gets high marks. I've been to Prague several times, including when the country was still Czechoslovakia, and enjoyed many different excellent Czech beers, but don't remember ever having Pilsner Urquell in the country. I wonder what the most popular brands are with the Czechs.When I was there I recall we all agreed there's no national cuisine other than some things to make you thirsty for more beer

If you like beer, Andrea Hlavackova is the type of woman you want to have as a friend. Her great-grandfather was the General Director of the Pilsner Urquell brewery in her hometown 80 years ago, and since then Hlavackova's family has kept the taps flowing. Her father is currently the Brewmaster at Pilsner Urquell. If you don't know about Pilsner Urquell, just think delicious Czech beer! In a recent piece in the New York Times, Ben Rothenberg reports that Hlavackova's family has run the company for nearly a century.
