Craft beer market in Europe: Top emerging trend

The beer business in Europe is currently witnessing the premiumization trend. Over the past few years, the higher priced brands in the beer industry are gaining more than the nominally-priced brands both in terms of volume as well as revenue, as consumers are willing to spend more on quality and differentiating products.
