Consumers are increasingly concerned about the impact of alcohol on their health and wellbeing. Subsequently, no-alcohol, low alcohol and gluten-free products have gained traction in the beer category and are recording considerable demand.

Fruit flavours are dominating beer innovation, with citrus flavours being the most prevalent. There is also innovation around spicy and refreshing flavour profiles.
