Furthermore, there has been a rapid increase in the consumption and purchasing of premium and super-premium beers in the country. Hungarians bought and drank other types of regular beers less when the weather in the country started to get cold but stick with the premium alcoholic beers. Statistics also reported that the Hungarian beer culture is on its right way to reach the standards of the European Union.

Moreover, Hungarian people buy more beers with less alcohol and focus on quality and not quantity.

At the end of the list, Malta, Cyprus, and Luxemburg stand with no manufactured beer at all. Only Romania, the Czech Republic, and Austria were better than Hungary with more beer.
