    Belgians world champions in alcohol consumption

    Belgians drink on average 12,6 litres of alcohol per year per person. OECD has released its latest health report. It reveals that Belgians top the world in terms of alcohol consumption, with the average Belgian drinking 12,6 litres of pure alcohol per year.

    To get the equivalent amount in litres of beer, one needs to multiply the number by 20, which would amount to 252 litres of beer. For wine, the multiplier is 8 which amounts to 100 litres of wine.

    Belgium thus dethrones Austria from the top spot.
