Federal calculations” claim the average American drinks 2.3 gallons of booze a year,” according to a report from the Associated Press. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)
The same report claims that’s the equivalent of 500 standard drinks.
This is way higher than expected. When I first heard that it was 2.3 gallons, I figured that meant like 2.3 gallons of beer.
I was very unimpressed. Only two gallons of beer a year? Give a break. I know people who put that back before the first quarter of the football game is over.
It was at that point I kept reading, and learned a little bit more. About 500 beers a year is way higher than I expected!
That is so much booze for the average person. I had no idea the number would be at the 500 mark.
Look, I’m all for drinking a few cold ones with the boys. I do it all the time, but I’m not sure the average person needs to be drinking 500 beers a year.
That seems like something that’s not necessary.
