Who's Drinking My Beer

I'm spending a lot of time in Portland watching TV since we're semi-snowed-in. Right now, the National Geographic Channel is showing Factory Floor. The program shows how things are manufactured; this episode is about fluorescent light bulbs, beer, escalators, and fire extinguishers.

Anyway, during the beer segment, the narrator said that Americans drink 20% of the world's beer, or 320 beers per adult per year. That seems like a lot of drinking. Since I drink about 6 per year, someone out there is drinking 600+ beers per year.
