Beer statistics in Cyprus – historic high in October 2018 consumption

37,10 million litres of beer were distributed in the Cypriot market between January-October 2018, an increase of 3.6% compared to the same period last year, CNA reports.

The increase was mainly caused by a rise in local consumption which is connected with the increased amount of tourists that visited Cyprus in 2018. Specifically, 36,14 million litres of beer were consumed so far in 2018, an increase of 3.71% from last year.

July was the month with the biggest beer consumption in 2018, as Cypriots and tourists consumed 5,36 million litres. In 2017, the biggest beer consumption was in June with 5,46 million litres.

Beer exports decreased by 0.60% to 0,96 million litres.

Total distribution of beers (local consumption and exports) in October 2018 was at 3,58 million litres, a Cypriot historic high for the month and an increase of 18.6% compared to October 2017.

Exports in October decreased significantly, by 40% to 55,506 litres. In October 2017, Cypriot beer-makers exported 92,410 litres.
