Slovak beer thirst set record in 2002

SLOVAKIA'S 12 breweries produced 4.8 million hectolitres of beer last year, a 5 per cent annual growth, to push domestic consumption to over 90 litres per capita for the first time in the history of independent Slovakia.

Jean-Paul van Hollebeke, head of Heineken Slovakia, which took a 46 per cent share of the market, ascribed the record to the fact that beer remains the cheapest drink offered by many bars and restaurants, including soft drinks.
