The Top Ten

1 Ireland Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

Don't know much about the country other than it looks beautiful. Every Irish blooded male, young and old, that I know are heavy drinkers. Cops, Musicians or just Blue Collar folk, when I'm around them the drinks are plentiful. I love every one of them. Not to stereotype them further, but it's my experience they are very loyal and family oriented folk. There may be some dust ups now and then, but 5 minutes later they are singing and drinking again. It's fun. - Ned964

The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language. more.

4 Czech Republic Czech Republic Czechia, officially the Czech Republic, is a nation state in Central Europe bordered by Germany to the west, Austria to the south, Slovakia to the east and Poland to the northeast.
5 Slovakia Slovakia
6 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. more.

At least where I'm from, this is another Country that has that stereotype attached to it. As I've only known a handful of folks straight from Germany here in the US, my experience is that the stereotype is largely unfounded. There are many folks of German ethnicity in the Upper Midwest, but there would appear to be no more incidents of alcohol abuse as with any group, or with the population as a whole. As far as I can see, it's a myth. - Ned964

7 Ukraine Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

Just not the case. Worked with many Ukrainians and spent a little time exploring their culture. There was of course plenty of drinks at a Ukrainian wedding party (And some very odd music I must admit) but by and large they are not overly dependant on alcohol - Ned964
