Description Source More information
This statistic shows the average number of liters of beer consumed per head in the United Kingdom (UK) annually from 2002 to 2016. Over this period, beer consumption generally decreased, after peaking at an average 93.9 liters per person in 2003. Figures have been calculated as liters consumed per head of the total UK population. The market for alcoholic beverages in the United Kingdom is centered around beer, which makes up a large portion of sales in both the on-trade and off-trade, although more so for the former. A surge in the popularity of wine, however, has resulted in a decrease in the share of beer consumed on-trade. On-trade beer consumption has further decreased over time in favor of the off-trade, likely due to increased prices as a result of tax. Consequently, consumer spending on beer has substantially increased, whereas consumption levels have remained fairly steady when based on volume.
