West German beer production rising.

West German beer production rising

Although West German beer imports to the U.S. were down nearly 10 percent in 1989, overall West German beer production was in the black for the first time since 1986. Analysts believe that warm summer weather and the influx of 700,000 Eastern European immigrants to the country was the cause of boosted output.

The total beer prouduction in 1989 was 93 million hectoliters, up 0.6 percent from 92.5 million in 1988, the German Association of Brewers said. In addition, total sales rose three percent to $8.95 billion.
