Global beer consumption increased for the second consecutive year to 192.1 million kiloliters in 2022, up 2.9% from the previous year and 1% more than the figure for 2019, surpassing pre-coronavirus pandemic volumes for the first time, as reported by Yuhi Sugiyama for Mainichi Shimbun, based on an announcement by Kirin Holdings Co.

Japan saw a 2.5% increase in beer consumption, reaching 4,294,000 kiloliters. However, the country fell in the annual world consumption rankings for the second consecutive year, dropping from eighth to 10th place.


This decline is attributed to more people working from home and a decrease in drinking parties during the pandemic.
