Belgium: annual volume of beer produced 2008-2016 Belgium is well-known for its beer, and Jupiler, Leffe, Duvel and Stella Artois are just four of the most famous beers produced in Belgium. According to the most recent figures, the annual volume of beer produced amounted to over 20 million hectoliters, making this relatively small country one of Europe’s leading beer producers.
 An industry on the rise 

  In the last few years, the number of Belgian breweries has increased exponentially, and in 2017, over 260 breweries were responsible for the total Belgian beer production. New breweries are founded every year, and between 2009 and 2017 the number of new breweries grew by over 130. At the same time, the number of people employed in the beer brewing industry also increased, from roughly 4,500 employees in 2012 to nearly 6,000 in 2017.

Belgian beer exports

  A country with just over 11 million inhabitants, Belgium produces a lot more beer than its population can drink – despite an impressive annual consumption of nearly 70 liters per person. Roughly three quarter of the beer produced in Belgium was exported abroad in 2016, mostly to other European countries. The leading destinations for Belgian beer were the neighboring countries France, the Netherlands and Germany, but further afield China, Korea, Japan and the US were also enthusiastic importers of Belgian beer.
