Czech breweries exported a record 5.16 million hectoliters of beer last year, an increase of over 11 percent in 2018, the Czech Beer and Malt Association reported this week. For the first time in history, the volume of beer in tanks and kegs surpassed bottled and canned beer. While Czechs still belong among the world’s leading beer drinkers, consumption of the golden brew has been stagnating for some time. Last year, the annual beer consumption per capita was 141 liters and experts say it is unlikely to grow.
