Brew­ers froth over low sales

The Citizen (KZN) - - NEWS - Ber­lin

– Ger­many has a well-de­served rep­u­ta­tion as a land of beer drinkers, with more than 6 mil­lion peo­ple at­tend­ing this year’s Ok­to­ber­fest in Mu­nich.

But data re­leased yes­ter­day showed a fur­ther de­cline in beer sales in the na­tion as in­ter­est grows in a healthy life­style.

Ger­many’s about 60 brew­eries sold 72 mil­lion hec­tolitres of beer in the first nine months of 2017 – down 3.1% from the same pe­riod last year. – dpa
