Leading 10 European countries in beer production 2018

In 2018, Germany was the leading producer of beer in Europe. German production amounted to almost 94 million hectoliters and was over twice the volume of production in the United Kingdom. Russian production was the second largest in Europe with 77.5 million hectoliters.

Beer production in the Americas

Production across the Atlantic outpaced German production and U.S. breweries produced 182.74 million barrels in 2018 (each holding 1.17 hectoliters). Brazil and Mexico are the second and third largest producers of beer in the Americas. Both countries production in 2018 outpaced German production with 141.36 million hectoliters and 119.8 million hectoliters respectively.

Beer production worldwide

Chinese production numbers, however, dwarfed all other countries production numbers. In 2018, Chinese breweries produced over 381 million hectoliters of beer. Chinese production was so significant, that production in Asia was larger than that in the Americas or in Europe. The only producer in Africa with an output over 20 million hectoliters was South Africa.
