AB Inbev's UK beer volumes dropped 2.7% in 2009 as volumes in both the on and off trade fell.

The Stella Artois and Budweiser brewer said beer volumes for the fourth quarter fell 5.2% in the UK while overall volumes in Western Europe had declined 2.4% overall.

"Full year volume growth of AB InBev's Focus Brands was more than offset by continuing decline in the on-trade industry, coupled with a decline in the off-trade, after several years of expansion," it said.

Revenues in the quarter rose 3.7% to $9.3bn.
