Britain - a nation of boozers?

Alcohol consumption in Britain actully quite modest shocker! The latest issue of Brewer and Distiller International reports that out of 20 countries surveyed Britain came in 14th place for alcohol consumption, well behind France and Germany. That won't make good newspaper headlines though will it?

Personally I'd like to see us move up the league table. Still, on the plus side, even if our overall alcohol consumption is less than impressive, SIBA continue to report rising beer sales.

And over the pond craft beer sales in the US have now reached 4% of the total market so lets hope we see more interesting beers being exported to Britain.
