Top 10 biggest beer brands

4. Tsingtao

The Tsingtao Brewery was founded by The Anglo-German Brewery Co. Ltd. in 1903. After changing hands a number of times, in 1993 it merged with three other breweries and was renamed Tsingtao Brewery Company Limited. Anheuser-Busch, who once owned 27% of the business, sold a 19.9% share of the company to Asahi in 2009 for $667m. It then sold its remaining stake to Chinese tycoon Chen Fashu. Earlier this year, it was reported that Asahi was selling its shares in Tsingtao, valued at US$1.1 billion. Despite shrinking profits and the growth of imported beer in China, Tsingtao remains the second biggest domestic beer brand in China, with 15% of China’s beer market share, behind Snow Beer with 22%.

In 2016, Tsingtao continued its downward spiral, with volume sales falling 9.2% compared to 2015. In 2013 the company reported a figure of 52.5m hectolitres.
