Hardest drinking? I read those stats and Denmark is the highest per capita at 15.5 liters per year? Heck, I've probably had weekends where I drank 15.5 liters!

I believe they mean 15.5L of pure alcohol, so converting the reported drinks to just the alcohol content none of the water/flavor.

By my calcs 15.5 L is 349, 12 oz beers/yr, or 262 pints.

I'm probably good for 3-4 time that.

It would have to be pure alcohol or something because the state of Bavaria in Germany easily consumes 15L per person, per week. Literally.
