Last year, beer production increased again in the Czech Republic after three years of decline. The annual increase was 2.7 percent, compared to 2010  – the Czech Brewers Association announced on Thursday.

The production of Czech breweries increased steadily until 2007. The record was in 2007; 19.9 million hectoliters. Then in 2008 a half percent, in 2009  six percent, and in 2010 a 8.6 percent decline occurred in production. According to market experts, this was basically due to the international economic crisis. The domestic consumption declined and a reduction occurred in the number of tourists visiting the Czech Republic.  (MTI)
