When it comes to beer, the possibilities are practically endless. You have got classics like porters, India pale ales (IPAs), and stouts, but that's just the tip of the beer iceberg. Brewmasters globally get creative with a few basic ingredients and various brewing techniques to offer several flavours and styles for consumers.

However, while the beverage is widely loved in many countries and cultures globally, how much and what kind of beer people enjoy can vary from place to place, and there are several reasons for this.

On the economic front, for instance, the African beer market suffered last year due to inflation and currency devaluation last year. Also, due to religious reasons, beer is strictly off-limits in some other countries.

According to a Wisevoter report, Namibia leads in beer consumption across Africa. Over the years, the beer market in Africa has experienced consistent growth, fueled by evolving lifestyles, rising disposable incomes, urbanization, and the youth's enthusiasm for beer. Both global brewing giants and local breweries are capitalizing on this burgeoning market. Currently, Africa holds nearly eight per cent of the global beer consumption market.

In the report, beer consumption is measured by volume and per capita. The latter, used in this report shows the liters of beer consumed per person in a country.
