Czech beer production edges up 1% in Jan-Sept 2011.

By bne IntelliNews December 13, 2011
Members of the Czech Association of Breweries and Malt Houses reported a 1% annual rise in production in the first nine months of 2011 following two years of contraction, CTK newswire reported citing data. The association accounts for 85% of the domestic beer output. The increase was mainly thanks to higher production of beer in PET bottles and of non-alcoholic beer. Plzensky Prazdroj, the biggest Czech brewer which holds a market share of 50%, expects sales in 2011 to be close to the last years level of 7mn hectolitres or slightly higher. Heineken's brewery Starobrno is expected to boost production by 10% this year. Breweries in the Liberecky region are to brew 670,000 hectolitres of beer this year, or 2,000 hectolitres more than in 2010. Central Moravian brewing companies Holba, Zubr and Litovel are also to raise production by up to 10% in 2011, while breweries in the Vysocina region expect production to stay at last years level.
