Alcohol-free beer consumption up 105%

3rd March 2021 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

The brewing sector has seen a 105% increase in alcohol-free beer consumption for the year ending December 2020, while overall beer consumption declined.

“This shows that New Zealanders are getting in behind the no alcohol category and following international trends in the beer market,” says Dylan Firth, executive director of the Brewers Association of New Zealand.

“Thanks to the investment in the low/no alcohol beer category from major brewers, consumers are becoming more accepting and familiar of the low/no-beer as a quality product.”
