German beer only more popular outside the EU

19-Apr-2023 - Germany
German beer is becoming increasingly popular in countries outside the EU. Despite a twelve percent slump compared with the previous year, just under 716 million liters of alcoholic beer were exported to these countries in 2022. According to the Federal Statistical Office on Tuesday, that was two-thirds more than ten years earlier.

Within the EU, however, exports of German beers fell by 27 percent in this period. Taxed sales in Germany were also down by eleven percent, but still accounted for the lion's share of 83 percent of total sales, with 7.2 billion liters at last count.

Despite the decline in output, the number of breweries has increased over the long term. It increased since 2012 by twelve percent to 1507 businesses, as reported by the Federal Office on the Day of Beer on April 23. Here, too, there had been a decline in the past three years, presumably due to the consequences of the Corona crisis. Bavaria had the most breweries, with a share of 41 percent, followed by Baden-Württemberg and North Rhine-Westphalia. (dpa)
