Imported beer in Canada - additional information

Reportedly the most popular alcoholic beverage in Canada, a survey found that beer was consumed by almost 60 percent of respondents in 2015. Ahead of wine and spirits, the beer market was valued at approximately 11.72 billion Canadian dollars in 2014 and is forecasted to exceed 13 billion Canadian dollars in 2019.

Since 2008, the sales volume of beer in Canada has dropped from approximately 23.37 million hectoliters to 22.08 million hectoliters in 2018. Despite this trend, the sales volume of imported beer has steadily risen. In the 2018 fiscal year, imported beer generated approximately 3.49 billion Canadian dollars in sales, down from 3.62 billion Canadian dollars the previous year. Imported beer sales however, only make up a fraction of the market in Canada, with domestic beer making up most of the sales.
