Some of these numbers seem high:
Average Americans drank just 9.4 litres of alcohol a year – the same as 470 pints of mild beer or 31 glasses of wine.
The figure is much lower than Europe where the average British drinker sinks 1100 pints of beer each year and Russians have 1350 pints of beer and 90 bottles of vodka
Of course these are average numbers. It turns out a lot of people in the US don’t drink at all:
The U.S. also has one of the highest rates of people who abstain from drinking with 35 per cent of residents preferring not to drink.
I can personally confirm that only one of these people was at CPAC this year. You know who you are.
