Polish beer consumersThe alcoholic brew also plays an important role in the life of a Polish person – over 40 percent of central European Slavs began drinking alcohol by consuming beer. Furthermore, in the last twenty years, the average beer consumption per capita almost doubled and amounted to 5.34 liters in 2019. In terms of regional consumption, the Mazowieckie (Masovian) voivodeship gathered the biggest population of beer devotees. In 2019, the region had the highest sold value of beer in Poland, accounting for 2.33 billion zloty.
Beer also remains the most popular type of alcohol consumed in every corner of the country. Seven percent of regular beer drinkers only consumed beer from regional and craft breweries. It is important to note that over half of the Polish population do not consider beer to be alcohol. Still, year after year, Poles show their devotion to alcoholic lager as it continues to dominate national beer sales.
