Germany Craft Beer Market Trends:

Trend Towards Craft and Specialty Beers

The craft beer market in Germany is being driven by the increasing consumer appreciation for craft and specialty beers. This trend reflects a shift towards sourcing from independent and local producers, and a preference for unique, high-quality flavors and ingredients that distinguish craft beers from industrial beers. The continuing rise in beer tourism and brewery tours also contribute to this development. For instance, around 1,500 breweries are spread across the country (half of them in Bavaria), Germany holds the record for the highest number of breweries in Europe. This extensive network of breweries contributes significantly to the German economy, generating substantial revenue and providing employment for a large number of people, tens of thousands working directly for the breweries, and hundreds of thousands more working for the hospitality sector that depends on the beer market. Beer is currently an €8.5 billion German industry and contributes about 1.5% of GDP of Europe’s largest economy. Additionally, the rising popularity of beer festivals and tasting events is on the rise in Germany is boosting beer consumption. The high quality and diverse range of craft beers foster a strong consumer attachment to the product, contributing to continuous market growth.

Impact of Microbreweries and Brewpubs

Microbreweries or brewpubs are also on the rise in Germany, thus boosting the growth of the craft beer market. Some of them exist solely for offering a range of new and unique beers, but all of them contribute to the improvement of the beer drinking experience in the region in terms of local identity and togetherness. Brewpubs, where beer is brewed for on-site consumption, facilitate direct customer interactions and enhance brand building. Also, there is a social support, including government assistance to small scale breweries and the favourable policies, created to enable many entrepreneurs to venture into this business. For instance, after being approved by the lower house (Bundestag), the upper house of the German parliament (Bundesrat) has also voted in favor of a temporary lowering of beer tax for smaller breweries in Germany on May 28, 2021. This has culminated in the influx of competition and creativity in the craft beer segment, a factor which has seen cask beer consumers being presented with a myriad of choices and consequently a segment contributor to the total growth of the market.
