Most Of The World’s Beer Comes From This Country
By KATHERINE BECK
Beer remains the most popular alcoholic beverage in the world, despite the market being overrun by canned drinks and hard seltzers. You might be shocked to learn which country produces the most beer in the world, despite the fact that beer is most frequently associated with European and North American nations.
Although beer has been drunk for thousands of years, its exact beginnings are unclear. Fermented beverages were first made approximately 12,000 years ago, and evidence suggests that China was one of the earliest places to consume alcohol after a vessel carrying a mead-like rice blend dating back to 7000 B.C.E. was discovered.
At 341.11 million hectoliters in 2020, China produces the most beer globally, closely followed by the United States with 211.17 million. With an annual growth rate of between three and five percent and future intentions to collaborate with foreign breweries, the Chinese beer business doesn't appear to be slowing down.
