Great news, German breweries: The Germans are drinking again. 

Well, more than usual—and a lot during the World Cup. 

Berlin's water supply company, Berliner Wasserbetriebe, released a chart in the aftermath of Germany's 7-1 victory over Brazil called "flush analysis." 

The chart shows epic spikes in the amount of water used in Berlin at half-time around 11 p.m. locally and again after midnight local time at the match's conclusion. 

Drink. Hold. Pee. Repeat. 

According to Business Insider, Germans aren't consuming nearly as much beer as they used to, dropping from 300 litres per year in 1976 to now only 106 per year. 

During days of World Cup matches, breweries' beer sales can increase up to one million litres a day, according to Bloomberg.com (via Business Insider).

So while all Germans are happy that their country has advanced to the World Cup final, purveyors of German beer are even happier. 

And toilets are put to more use, too.
