France: number of active beer microbreweries 2009-2018

Microbreweries refer to all breweries producing a limited number of hectolitres per year. Often handmade, it can be produced by a bar or restaurant, a farm or by small or medium-sized enterprises. The microbrewery phenomenon appeared during the 1970s in the United Kingdom, gradually the concept spread to North America and then to Western Europe.

In France, it was only in the mid-1980s that microbreweries made their appearance, but it was at the turn of the 2010 that the concept benefited from a sharp increase in brewing sites. In 2009, the number of breweries was about 250, and less than 10 years later their number had more than quintupled. In 2018, microbreweries represented nearly 90 percent of all breweries in France.
