Micro- and craft breweries have registered a significant growth across Europe in the last two decades, but the EU beer market presents a high level of variation mainly associated with different regulatory frameworks and consumers' preferences in each EU country. By addressing the variety of breweries, fiscal systems and consumers' attitudes across the continent, this chapter examines the diversity of EU national beer markets, providing an overview of a wide range of issues affecting the development of micro- and craft breweries within the EU beer and brewing industry.
