Australian beer consumption continues to drop.
Wine consumption per capita has quadrupled over the past 40 years, pushing beer consumption to its lowest level since 1961, the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare said in its latest report.
In the 2001 survey, Australia was ranked 15th on the list of overall alcohol consumption, with 9.8 liters consumed for each person aged over 15 years, down from 13 liters 20 years ago.
Luxembourg topped the rankings, with 14.9 liters, Britain with 10.2 liters, with U.S. consumption at 8.3 liters per person.
