    Oettinger is Germany's biggest selling beer? I've never even heard of it. How about that.

    i suspect the problem is in their accounting methods:

    10 guys drink a six pack each of craft beer per week.

    10 guys drink a 12 pack each of Bud Lite per night.

    I can't stand Bud Light, I drink regular Bud all the time at home though...when out I like Amstel Light or some micro brew if I'm eating a Steak or something.

    I weep for my country. And for my country's hat.

    Wait. North Korea has beer?

    Must be the tourist industry driving at least some of these. No self-respecting Mexican drinks Corona.

    It's OK, but offhand, I can think of four or five they make that are better...

    India are on the money - Kingfisher is a tasty drop!

    Oettinger is terrible, would have thought the Germans had more class than that. it's cheap & awful (like Chang beer).

    pretty surprised that Heineken didn't rate higher. I really thought that was the worlds biggest selling beer. (it probably still is, as its available in most countries)

    Never heard of Oettinger. Just about positive it's not Germany's most sold or popular domestic beer. I wouldn't drink Bud if you paid me to and my band used to be sponsored by them.

    you got to remember that there is no accounting for taste. and that the majority of alcohol is consumed daily by borderline (and not-so borderline) alcoholics. people buy what is cheap.


    I worked with some German backpackers a few years back and they told me that its what all the drunks back home drink. they said in their thick accents "they have it for breakfast, its like their bacon and aaaags" :D

    I'm reading up on Oettinger and it turns out it is very recently the most brewed beer in Germany. It must be the stuff bums get in train stations or students drink at huge parties. I haven't taken a train in Germany in a long time, but I've spent enough time and bought enough beer there to make a dent in their beer sales and I've still never seen Oettinger. Krombacher is number 2 and I've been drinking that since I was an exchange student there 25 yrs. ago. I used to live near Bitburg, so that was the ubiquitous beer back then. But fantastic beer is so cheap in Germany, there's really no reason to drink the bad stuff.

    from 2008-2013 I was working at Woolworths Liquor Distribution Centre (Melbourne, Australia) and I saw tonnes of the stuff come through. it was cheap & nasty, barely any packaging - just a clear plastic case holding 24 bottles.

    even though it was horrid stuff, we moved more of it than the other regulars such as DAB, Bitburger, Löwenbräu etc.

    Ironic that the fattest people on earth drink the light beer.

    Yes, but exported beer wouldn't count toward the numbers in that graph. If they did, Beck's would win, hands down, in Germany.

    yeah true. was just making the point that Oettinger has been around for a while.

    maybe, maybe not. the thing with exported beer is it goes to the Asian & Indian markets, which have billions more in population than the US/UK etc. they could be getting a crapload of Oettinger was well.
