After five years of growth, beer production in the Czech Republic decreased by 0.7 percent to 20.32 million hectolitons last year – the Czech beer producer association announced in Prague at a press conference.

The main reason for the decrease is a decline in domestic consumption. The beer consumption in the Czech Republic decreased by 2.1 percent to 16.04 million hectoliters on an annual level. Last year, a Czech citizen drank an average of 138 liters of beer, five liters less than a year before. (MTI, Kokes János)
