Posted:

In the Czech Republic, per-capita beer consumption is twice that of the United States' and competition is such that some beers are priced at less than any other beverage, including water. The brewery Pizensky Prazdroj carries beer in tanker trucks that in the U.S. might deliver gasoline, and delivers it to pubs’ storage tanks, like U.S. gas stations' storage tanks. Recently, concerned about overconsumption, the country’s health minister proposed to prohibit restaurants and bars from offering a beer as the lowest-priced drink, per ounce.
