In the spring of 2022, some large breweries will increase their prices in the catering and retail sectors. Beer is said to be up to 50 cents more expensive per glass.
Hamburg – Beer lovers all over Germany will be hit hard in spring 2022. Because the beer prices of some large breweries will rise – both in gastronomy and in retail. One of the reasons for this is the corona pandemic: there has been a significant drop in prices on the beer market since the crisis. Retailers have used discounts to lure customers into the shops even during the pandemic, and all beer consumption in restaurants has ceased for a long time. According to data from the Federal Statistical Office (StBA), Germans drank less beer in the first half of this year than ever since reunification.
