According to Statista, a German market data company, global beer revenue equates to $612,406 million in 2021—and it's on the uptick.

Based on current beer consumption trends, the company suggests beer revenue is expected to grow by more than 10% next year.

A spokesperson for Maxima Kitchen Equipment observed: "Beer is one of the world's favorite drinks, and it's fascinating to see which brands are attracting the most Google searches." Adding: "The brands at the top of the list will hope they can convert those searches into sales."

The winner in North America seems to achieve this; in fact, Forbes named them one of the "World's Most Valuable Brands" last year with a brand value of $11.4 billion, $7.5 billion in revenue, and 13% value growth over the prior year.

This made them the second most valuable alcohol brand last year, according to the Forbes list. (The first was Budweiser.)
