Annual volume of beer consumed in Belgium from 2008 to 2017
(in 1,000 hectoliters)
Belgium: annual volume of beer consumed 2008-2017
Between 2008 and 2017, the Belgian beer consumption decreased. Beer consumption peaked in 2009, at nearly 8.7 million hectoliters, but afterwards declined nearly year on year. In 2017, beer consumption was just over 7.5 million liters, or roughly a million less than it had been just eight years earlier. This came down to a per capita beer consumption of just under 70 liters per year.

 Lager most popular beer type

  A recent survey asked Belgian respondents about their favorite beer types. In 2018, about one quarter of participants stated that their preferred beer was lager, making this the most popular beer type in the country. By comparison, abbey beer was a favorite among 15 percent of survey participants.

Drinking beer at home

  In another survey, Belgians indicated that they regularly drink beer at home. When asked why they drink beer here, the most frequently stated reasons were that the home offered a more relaxed atmosphere (66 percent) and that it does not require a sober driver (60 percent). The ability to smoke a cigarette with the beer seemed less important, as only three percent of respondents named this as a reason to drink at home.
