Thanks to financial support of the European Commission, the journalist Herbert Latz-Weber ( and I have produced a report on the European brewing industry.

The report was commissioned by EFFAT and we presented our preliminary findings at the EFFAT conference held in Blankenberge, Belgium, last month. 

In our report, we dealt with the world’s big four brewers: AB-InBev, SABMiller, Heineken and Carlsberg. While we focused primarily on the European scene and highlighted the structures which make Europe unique - and therefore hard to compare -, we also looked at selected beer markets from around the world and the challenges these brewers face.

An abbreviated version of our presentation “The European brewing industry in transition” can be downloaded at

Don’t worry: it’s in English.

Our updated report will be available in eight languages (EN, FR, DE, NL, ES, IT, PL, SV) and will come out in late autumn this year.

Watch this space.
