CZECH: H1 beer production inches up - figures
Beer production in Czech rose very slightly in the first six months of 2012
Beer production in Czech has risen slightly in the first six months of this year, according to recent data.
Trade body the Czech Breweries and Malthouses Association (CBMA), which accounts for around 90% of the country's brewers, said late last week that beer production between January and June was up by 1.4% on the corresponding period a year earlier. Just under 1.6m hectolitres was produced by the CBMA's members.
The slight lift was credited to an increase in tourist numbers to Czech in the period and the rising popularity of 'radlers', a 50-50 mix of beer with lemonade, according to association director Jan Vesely.
Exports accounted for almost 19% of total production in the period, Vesely added. The main markets, in order, were Germany, Slovakia and the UK.
