Beer production increased in 2019 to 739 million litres; 15 million more litres than the previous year, according to recent data from Eurostat.

Of the total produced, 548 million litres were for domestic consumption, with the rest being exported, the Cervejeiros de Portugal beer association said (APCV).

According to data from the association, last year, 53 litres of beer was consumed per capita consumption, making Portugal the 24th European country in beer consumption per capita.

The association says this highlights the “moderate and responsible way in which Portuguese people appreciate beer”.


I spend many a downtime in Portugal and love visiting the country, its people and its traditions.
