European beer statistics

Here’s the latest publication of European beer statistics.

Usually we see the numbers from BA for US, so it’s interesting to see some numbers for Europe (or EU). One number that catches my eye is increase of breweries in France. According to this they have most breweries in Europe (it’s not even close) and that number has more than doubled in 3 years. Does anyone has more insight into this? Are these numbers legit?


Interesting. I wonder if any of it is good beer.
