German beer loss

Berlin, Dec. 24 (Reuters): Germans are losing their taste for beer, according to the German Brewery Association.

Per-capita consumption of beer in Germany, once the world’s largest consumer of the drink, fell by 3.5 litres in 2007 to 112.5 litres — the eighth decline in the last nine years. Brewery Association managing director Peter Hahn told Die Welt newspaper today that demographics were partly to blame for the fall from a peak of 156 litres in the 1980s.

Waste slip

New York (PTI): A former doorman who went flying down the steps at a subway station after slipping on bird waste has been awarded more than $6 million in compensation. Shelton Stewart, 56, was heading home from his job when he stepped on the pigeon poop on September 21, 1998. He had noticed the pile on his way to work that day.
