Let's beat them Czechs ...!
News from Slashfood.com:
Just-Drinks.com reported yesterday that U.S. per capita beer consumption rose in 2007 after years of small, but steady decline. Citing a report from the Beverage Marketing Corporation (fun guys, I swear!), the article pointed out that though declines in recent years have been relatively small, they had become a "steadily recurring phenomenon."
But don't start bragging yet! According to this 2004 report (the most current and reliable I could find with a quick web search), the U.S. ranks a paltry 13th in world beer consumption, drinking almost half of what they drink in the Czech Republic.
