There are 128oz. in a gallon. Divide that by 12 (the standard 12oz. beer) and you get essentially 10.7 beers (rounded up) in a gallon. I figure that I drink roughly 3 beers a night during the week, 8 beers Friday night, 9 on Saturday, 6 on Sunday (Note: the weekend numbers can vary greatly at times, but these are what I deem to be normal). That gives me 35 beers/week. Divided by 7, I drink an average of 5 beers per day. Multiply that by 365, and I drink an average of 1,825 beers per year. Divided by 10.7, I drink roughly 171 gallons of beer per year. By comparison, in my seinor year of college at my highest level of drinking tolerance, I was probably drinking 55 beers/week, an average of 7.8/day, or 2,847/year, which would translate to 266 gallons of beer in a year. According to this map, people in my area drink at least 6 times less beer per year than I do. While I don't have a source, I remember watching a Modern Marvels episode that claimed the Czech people drink the most beer per capita in the world at 50 gallons per person. Focus: What's your number? Also, do you agree or disagree with the map based on what you see in your area. There must either be a ton of sober people, or a ton of people that drink things other than beer in CT, because 25 gallons or less of beer/year averages out to less than 1 beer/day. *Edited to add: This obviously doesn't include holidays occurring during weekdays, or the added amount of larger beers drank at bars--which would obviously push my number higher.
