Last year, beer consumption per capita in Slovakia was 120 – the lowest in the last 30 years – the Statistical Office (ŠÚ) informed on the occasion of World Beer Day, which falls on the first Friday of August.

The office reminded that beer consumption was pushed back by the coronavirus epidemic. In 2021, beer consumption was 60.2 liters, 17 pints less than in 2020, which is an annual decrease of 12%.

In 1990, the most beer was sold in the country, 96 liters per person, and then it gradually decreased for more than 25 years. It started to increase again in the year before the epidemic, when the annual beer consumption was 70 liters.

In Europe in 2020, the Czech Republic topped the list (135 liters), followed by Austria (100 liters) and Germany (95 liters), and Slovakia was 10th. The least amount of beer is sold in the Mediterranean countries in Europe: Greece (28 liters), Italy (31 liters) and France (33 liters).
