This can make it a healthier alternative to traditional beer for consumers looking for a healthier beverage option.

The COVID-19 pandemic has mixed impact on the global market. Disruptions in global supply chains led to shortages in some ingredients used in fruit beer production. This has resulted in higher prices for some fruit beers. Whereas the closure of bars and restaurants during the pandemic resulted in a decrease in sales of draft fruit beer and on-premise sales of bottled and canned fruit beer. However, with more consumers shopping online due to social distancing measures, e-commerce platforms have seen an increase in sales of fruit beer and other alcoholic beverages.
