Budweiser Brewing Group, the UK & Ireland arm of AB InBev, is claiming to have become the number one brewer by volume in Britain.

Molson Coors has traditionally led the market thanks to its brands such as Carling, Cobra and Sharp’s.

However, the Budweiser Brewing Group has recently seen strong sales of its key brands with the firm quoting data from Nielsen & CGA showing it has 24.8% of the volume share of beer produced in the UK YTD.

Paula Lindenberg, UK President, Budweiser Brewing Group UK&I, commented: “The results we are seeing reflect the strength of our portfolio of brands; including Budweiser, Stella Artois, Corona and Bud Light.

“People are choosing the brands they know and love, and we’re proud that the quality of our beer portfolio and our iconic brands meet the demands of Britain’s beer drinkers today. We have ambitious plans to grow in the on-trade, and we look forward to the reopening of the sector. We’ll be harnessing the strength of our brand portfolio and the dedication of our teams to play a leading role in the recovery.”
