Thuringia: Export success of Thuringian farms stopped for the time being

Erfurt (dpa/th) - Before the brewery crisis in Thuringia with plant closures, beer sales were relatively stable. According to the State Statistical Office on Monday, almost 1.5 million hectoliters of beer were sold in the first half of the year. That was one percent less than in the same period last year. A few weeks ago, the Oettinger brewery announced the closure of its large location in Gotha. According to the brewery in Apolda, it cannot produce because it lacks carbon dioxide.

The slight decline in beer sales is solely due to exports, the state office said. Deliveries from breweries abroad fell by 8.1 percent compared to the first half of 2021, which was still heavily influenced by the restrictions imposed by the pandemic. The export success of the Thuringian brewers, which has been recorded for several years, has thus been stopped for the time being.

By contrast, Thuringian beer sales within Germany were slightly positive. According to the state office, 1.4 percent more was sold than in the same period last year. Beer mixes with lemonade, cola, fruit juices and other non-alcoholic additives were less in demand. Sales fell 6.9 percent.
