The craft microbreweries represent 1% of the national production (300 thousand hectoliters) and 2-3% of the value (according to Assobirra, 60 million euro). The growth of specialty beers, imported and craft but especially Italian, traveling between 10 and 20% per annum. In two years it is expected that the craft beers account for half of that consumption today is 29 liters per capita, lower than the European average of 72 liters.
