    Why is it that Germans have a different liver from other people for assimilating so much beer?

    Actually, our livers dont’t cope all that well with alcohol. According to http://www.alcoholconcern.org.uk/information/factsheets/factsheet27.htm, cirrhosis deaths are a respectable 21.5/100,000 (presumably per year) in Germany; the risk to Belgians is about half that, at a total alcohol consumption that is only 10 percent lower (see http://fathers.ourfamily.com/alcoholconsume.htm).

    By the way, it’s not the Germans who drink the most beer per capita but the Czechs (see http://beerchina.com/beerenglish/comsptn_by_country_en.htm )

    If you think Australians are good drinkers, try drinking with Russians or Norwegians!
