Belgium: number of active beer breweries 2009-2017

Belgian beer is well-known all over the world, and brand names like Stella Artois and Jupiler are household names not only in Belgium itself, but also across the border. In 2017, over 260 beer breweries were active in the country, more than double the number as just nine years prior. Together, these breweries produced around 20 million hectoliters of beer every year.

 Beer exports 

  Although Belgians drink nearly 70 liters of beer per capita per year, they cannot drink all the beer produced in the country by themselves. The majority of the beer produced is therefore exported abroad. In 2017, beer exports from Belgium amounted to roughly 15.8 million hectoliters.

Destination countries

   The most important destination countries for beer exported from Belgium were the neighboring countries: France, the Netherlands and Germany. Belgian beer was however also exported further afield, with China ranking fourth in the list of leading destinations for beer exports. Belgian beer was also popular in Canada, the US, China and Japan.
