Economic Impact of Beer in Canada
Beer is Canada’s most popular alcohol beverage, followed by wine and spirits. Brewing is one of Canada’s oldest industries and Canadian brewers today hold an 85% share of the domestic beer market. Canada has many competitive advantages in making world class beers: proximity to malt barley, large fresh water supply, educated workforce and more than 10 million local beer drinkers. The domestic consumption of Canadian and imported beer in 2015 stood at almost 64 litres per person based on population. (Source: BeerCanada.com)
