Beer consumption rises in Hungary

Drinks

Domestic sales of Hungarian breweries increased by 2% reaching 5.8 million hectoliters last year, following a drop of 4.5% earlier last year, simultaneous to the excise tax being raised, Attila Schillinger, head of  professional association MSSz, said late yesterday. 

Sales of premium beer climbed almost 23% and sales of the cheapest beer rose close to 6%, while sales of mid-range product dropped 4%. The data is based on sales of Hungaryʼs top four breweries: Borsodi, Dreher, Heineken and Pécsi. Including exports, their combined output reached 6.2 million hectolitres last year.
