Americans earn beer money faster than any other country

By / 09.27.12

America may lag behind in worker vacation days and surge ahead in obesity, but if there’s one category in which the United States owns the competition, it’s the always important “beer and labor ratio.”

The Economist


You might not have the best benefits package, and you probably work 60 hours per week, but you earn enough money to buy a beer faster than any other country on the planet. America, fuck yeah! Some say our priorities may be out of whack, but I say they’re just right. People often citicize the macro brewers for making shit beer, but their pricing is the reason we’re on the top (well, bottom) of the charts!
