Brand Finance Beers 25 2019

  • Budweiser overtakes Bud Light as most valuable beer brand in world, brand value US$7.5 billion
  • Brewing giant AB InBev dominates with 11 brands in the ranking 
  • China’s Snow and Tsingtao record fastest growth, up 52% and 49% respectively
  • Scotland’s BrewDog is highest new entrant in 19th position, brand value US$1.5 billion
  • Aguila is world’s strongest beer brand, clocking up Brand Strength Index (BSI) score of 88.4 out of 100

“As you can see across this year’s ranking, it is the Asian, particularly Chinese, beer brands that are seeing the highest brand value growth. With demand for beer at an all time high in China and predictions of inflated growth over the coming years as a result of greater disposable income from the emerging middle class, this trend looks set to continue. If these brands begin to expand beyond China and into new markets, we could potentially see some very stiff competition to established Western beer brands.”
