UK Cities such as Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle Upon Tyne and Glasgow have their moments on a saturday night.

Newcastle Upon Tyne is where the famous brown ale originated from.

Glasgow - a city so tough it has a coma scale named after it.

Street fights and bar fights are very common in the Netherlands as well.

Getting a toe-ing could be pretty bad if you are being kicked by wooden clogs!

Yup, pretty much anywhere that has bars/pubs and drunks...usually men...but not always.
Most spill out into the street don't they? Since they usually get kicked out.

Now, I've been going to bars, pubs and clubs since 1975 when I was underage, but have never witnessed one while I was drinking.

I did see a big fight outside a bar once, as I was walking by. Kind of disturbing how mindless alcohol can make some people. I bet they didn't even know what they were fighting about.

As far as the western world is concerned, it seems more common for some reason in countries with a predominant or at least significant Protestant tradition as opposed to those that tend to be more wholly Catholic in their religious traditions.

It may have something to do with the fact that these countries also have more of a tendency to binge drinking?

No bar brawls here, Spain, British don't seem to engage in bar brawls as they are too drunk. Noisy, yes. they seem to recur to barbarian songs when very drunk. Either they are peaceful or the country is too familiarised with British tourists.

Well, Irish, Irish do love their brawls too and they are not heathens.

In Spain, maybe northerners, Basque, more of a tradition shaped by weather, but no binge drinking except when they start to drink cider casks, Asturias and Basque country.

I wonder if it's media that makes us think that?

I haven't read this whole study, but this bit seems at odds with the thought that protestants drink more. No idea about brawling though. Also, it is ONLY a study of students in the US so it can't be translated to countries overall, so I admit it really isn't a true argument against your post...but it is interesting.

"The relationship between drinking and religious affiliation suggests the highest proportion of drinkers are typically found among Jews, a slightly a lower rate among Catholics and the lowest among Protestants. This has been found in American (Carlucci, et al. 1993), American and Canadian(Engs, Hanson and Glicksman, 1990) and a Scottish(Mullen, Blaxter, and Dyer, 1986) sample. Some reports (Miller and Garrison, 1982; Engs and Hanson, 1985) also indicate a direct relationship between the lack of importance of religion and frequent or heavy drinking but not all (Reiskin and Wechsler, 1981)."

Drinking patterns due to gender, age, race, frats, religion, etc. with 'high'(binge) and 'low' risk students

There seems to be quite a few studies done on drinking and religion...
