Paul 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." Steve McQueen also drank a case of beer every day.

I can't imagine enjoying life without beer!

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.

Difficult to believe a guy could do that, stay slender his whole life, and live to 83

(April 7 became Beer Day because it was the date in the early 1930s that FDR signed an Act of Congress that regulated the sale and manufacture of low alcohol content beers)

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
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.

You have made a thread on hot dogs/sausages, so I'm guessing you may have visited one of the famous Czech sausage kiosks after a beer or two.

10 Things: Andrea Hlavackova
By Chris Oddo
Brew Crew:
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.
