Ireland’s beer production has been mostly stagnating since 2009. The countries production for 2018 amounted to 8.3 million hectoliters. In comparison, Mexican production that year reached only 120 million hectoliters. However, the countries production has been increasing for the last five years. Meanwhile, UK production has been falling opening the market further and is now (2017) about 18 million hectoliters smaller than in 2003.
