Europe Black Beer Market – Overview

Beer is typically made from four basic ingredients: malted cereal grains, hops, water, and yeast, and is fermented over a certain length of time. Furthermore, flavoring components such as herbs and fruits are used in beer to give it a distinct flavor. There are many diverse types of beers on the market, with ale and lager being the two most popular. Furthermore, Schwarzbier, or black beer, is a dark lager from Germany. It has an opaque black color with traces of chocolate or coffee flavors and has an ABV (alcohol by volume) about 5%. It is comparable to a stout in that it is produced using roasted malt, which gives it a dark color. Additionally, in Germany and the UK, where brewers and beer styles have remained unchanged for generations, there is a growing need for new beer types. Many buyers worldwide believe that craft beer, including black beer, is worth paying a premium for. Therefore, craft breweries and new microbreweries are emerging across Europe to suit the increased demand for unique beer types.

Europe Black Beer Market – By Product Type

Based on product type, Europe black beer market is divided into Dark Lager, Dark Ale, Brown Porter, and Stout segments. The dark lager segment held the highest market share during the forecast period. Dark lagers are brewed at low temperatures using bottom-fermenting yeast, whereas dark ales are made at high temperatures. The ease with which dark lagers can be produced is predicted to enhance supply. Furthermore, dark lagers are less likely to pollute the environment, encouraging local and international microbreweries to produce more lagers rather than ales. Due to their smoother, sharper, and cleaner taste, black lagers are more popular than other beers. Followed by stout segment is expected to hold the highest market share due to increasing popularity among health conscious consumers. Stout is a fermented dark ale that is often prepared from unmalted barley. It includes flavonoids, an antioxidant that contributes to the drink’s black color. Stout ale contains vitamins, carbohydrates, proteins, antioxidants, and iron, which are believed to prevent blood clots, support muscle growth, and reduce the chance of a heart attack. The manufacturers produce black ale variants that are reduced in calories, fat, and cholesterol. Dark lager’s brewing process is faster and convenient than that of other black beers, such as dark ale or brown porter.
