For some reason Bulgarians have increased their beer consumption almost 10% in one year:
The total amount of beer consumed in the country was 294 million litres in 1997, reaching 425 million in 2003 and 473 million in 2004.By comparison in 2001/02, Canadian consumers purchased an average of 7.1 litres of spirits, 12.4 litres of wine and 84.7 litres of beer. The year before, they bought, on average, 6.5 litres of spirits, 12.2 litres of wine and 85.0 litres of beer. I suspect Bulgarians outdo Canadians in terms of wine - yup 19.66 litres percapita in 2001.
Later: yet consumption was dropping like a rock in the Bulgarian fall?!?! More research required.
