Top 10 biggest beer brands

6. Yanjing

Founded in 1980 by The Beijing Yanjing Brewery, Yanjing beer has continued its downward descent in terms of volume sales. In 2013, Yanjing reported volume sales of 37.9m hectolitres, but this has now fallen to 32.3m hectolitres in 2016. In February 2017, BMI Research published a study that concluded that beer consumption in China is expected to continue its downward trend for the next five years, after falling for the past two.

Also known as Beijing Beer, Yanjing is often described as the “taste of China”, alluding to its prevalence and popularity in the country. Its brewery is one of the largest in Asia, employing around 20,000 people and producing a range of pale lagers. In 2016, volume sales decreased by 4.95% compared to 2015.
