Annual volume of beer consumed in Spain 2008-2018

Spain consumed over 39.8 million hectoliters of beer in 2019, which translate into a personal intake of 52 liters per capita in 2018. Spain may not reach yet the same level of beer consumption per person as the rest of its European counterparts, but its national consumption figures saw a considerable increase in the past 9 years.

Beer VS. Wine: Spain’s case

The average Spaniard, however, spent more money on wine in 2018. Despite that, wine consumption in the Mediterranean country stands at a significant lower level compared to other European countries. Spain’s wine intake ranked well behind other wine-producing countries such as France or Italy, both at the top of the list with a consumption of approximately 45 liters per person in 2018. Spain made the list with only a shy 18.4-liter wine consumption.

Alcohol consumption in Spain comparatively low

Spaniards may like their beer and wine, but they still only appear in the last positions of the list of alcohol consumption in Europe, led by Lithuania, whose average pure alcohol intake stood at 13.2 liters in 2016. Normally, the average beer will contain between four to five percent of pure alcohol content or ethanol, standard wines around 12 percent and distilled spirits about 40 percent.
