Around one in four beer produced in the EU is brewed in Germany. According to the European statistical agency Eurostat, nearly 32 billion liters of alcoholic beer were produced in the EU in 2020. 24% of these were made in Germany. According to official data, this makes Germany the largest beer producer in the EU. Poland ranks second with 3.8 billion liters of beer, followed by Spain and the Netherlands. Compared with 2019, however, 8% less alcoholic beer was brewed in the EU last year, Eurostat said. The biggest losses were recorded in Italy, where beer production almost halved. The production of non-alcoholic beer in the EU has again remained stable. Germany exported relatively little beer.
