German beer sales increased slightly in the first half of this year, according to recent figures. The rise was credited largely to increased exports to other European countries and rising sales of new mixed-drink beverages.

Beer shipments in the six-month period rose by 0.3% to 51.9m hectolitres, boosted by a stronger second quarter, the German federal statistics office announced.

Exports to other EU countries rose by 7.3%, while sales of mixed drinks combining beer with juices or other soft drinks increased by 19.3%.

Exports to countries outside the EU, however, declined by 5.8%, while domestic sales fell by 0.3%.
