BRITONS and German holidaymakers have been drinking Spain dry.
The 60 million annual visitors – dominated by these two nationalities – drink at least 30 per cent of the beer produced in Spain.
The Ministry for Environment revealed that the average person drank 50.2 litres of beer in 2009 – a 14 per cent drop on 2008 figures.
The study also found that 67 per cent of all beer is drunk in bars, compared to 33 per cent at home.
Furthermore, Spain is the fourth biggest producer of beer in the EU with 33.8m hectolitres and the tenth largest in the world.
China topped the study with 410m hectolitres made annually.
