U.K. beer output is lowest in decade.

According to a report from the United Kingdom's Brewers' Society, beer production in that country declined 3.8 percent to 35 million barrels in 1991. Those figures, based on England's Customs & Excise statistics, indicate the worst annual production decline for the the United Kingdom in 10 years.

"The present recesion has hit almost as hard as in 1981 when the beer market fell by 4.5 percent," a Brewers' Society spokesperson explained.

Despite the drop in domestic production, imports into England continued to increase, rising 5.2 percent to 3.2 million barrels. On the flip side, British beer exports were also up in 1991--increasing 13.5 percent to 1.13 million barrels.
