Once again fewer German breweries among the world's largest

15-Jun-2023 - Germany

Only six German companies are still represented in the ranking of the 40 largest breweries in the world by hop merchant BarthHaas. The Veltins brewery, which had made it into the top league for the first time in the 2020 ranking, is no longer included in the latest ranking for 2022 despite gains, BarthHaas announced in Nuremberg on Tuesday. It was reportedly displaced by Belgium's Martens Brewery, whose figures were evaluated for the first time. The 2020 ranking included eight German breweries with the rise of Veltins. In 2021, there were then seven, because Warsteiner was no longer included.

According to the list, the largest German beer producer continues to be the Oetker subsidiary Radeberger Group, which remains in 22nd place. It is followed by TCB Beteiligungsgesellschaft, again in 24th place, which includes Gilde Brauerei, Frankfurter Brauhaus and Feldschlößchen. The Oettinger Group slipped from 25th to 26th place, while BarthHaas described Krombacher and the Paulaner Group as moving up one place each to positions 29 and 30. The Bitburger Brewery Group held its 33rd place.
