Czechia: number of active beer breweries 2008-2018

The number of active beer breweries in Czechia has increased significantly since 2008, rising from 128 to 488 by 2018. The most noticeable increase occurred in 2013, when there were nearly 100 more breweries than in the previous year. Czech beer has been brewed for more than a thousand years, with the first brewery opening in 993 AD.

A nation of beer drinkers

Despite the annual volume of beer consumed per capita falling slightly over the past decade, Czechia is still the biggest beer drinking nation in Europe by far. In 2017, the average Czech beer drinker consumes 138 liters per year.

Beer production

From 2010 to 2016, beer production increased annually in Czechia, rising to 20.6 million hectoliters. However, the following year saw a slight decline with production dropping to 20.3 million hectoliters. Of this, approximately 4.6 million hectoliters were exported, with 82 percent arriving in other European Union nations. The country produces various styles of beer, but it is most famous for Pilsner, which originates from the city of Plzeň.
