Drinking Europe under the table

In first place for this EU drinking contest is Belgium where the combination of cheap beer and decent minimum wage means your stipend gets you a whopping 1028 beers a month! (We really don't recommend drinking 1000+ beers a month...)

Bringing up the rear is Georgia with a score that's likely to leave you thirsty: 36 beers a month for the minimum wage.

The UK and Ireland have an impressive 374 and 333 beers a month, nothing like the 521 you'll get in Germany though (We blame the £5.00+ London pint for that one, sorry).
