German breweries have seen their volume sales rise for the first time since 2006, according to latest figures. 

Germanys brewing industry saw a slight rise in volumes in 2014

Germany's brewing industry saw a slight rise in volumes in 2014

Volumes for the industry as a whole edged up by 1% to 95.6m hectolitres in 2014, Germany's Federal Statistical Office reported. Domestic consumption accounted for 83.7% of total volumes, broadly flat compared to the prior year. Sales by value were not detailed. 

No explanation was given for the rise in overall volumes either, but speculation suggested Germany's victory in last year's FIFA World Cup may have contributed to the increase. 

In 2006, the last time volumes rose year-on-year, Germany co-hosted the World Cup. 

However, German beer volumes have mostly been steadily decreasing since 2001, when annual consumption was 107.8m hectolitres. 

Overall beer consumption in Europe has fallen by 9% over the past five years, according to figures released last November. In the UK, however, the market is showing signs of recovery as volumes in 2014 were up for the first time in nearly a decade, driven by the off-trade.
