Brewers froth over low sales
– 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
