German Beer Exports Drop Heavily, Brewers Declare

The anti-German boycott has resulted in a thirty-nine per cent drop in the exportation of German beer, despite the American import of German beer in the first months in which beer became legal in the United States, it was disclosed yesterday at the annual convention of German brewers. Exports of beer from Germany during the period between January and September of 1933, it was stated, amounted to eight million marks as compared to fourteen million in the same period last year.

Sentiment in the convention was pessimistic about export possibilities to the United States in view of the prohibitive duty placed by the American government on German beer.
