The published data indicates that in 2020, almost 32 billion litres of alcoholic beer were produced in the EU. On top of that, member states also produced 1.4 billion litres of beer which had an alcohol content ranging from 0.5 to 0 percent.

Thus, overall EU beer production in 2020 rested at 74 litres per capita.

In a year-on-year comparison with 2019, the overall production of alcoholic beer decreased by 8 percent in 2020 for the EU due to the pandemic, while the production of non-alcoholic beer remained stable.
