The country released consumption numbers for June today and beer sales saw a 14% rise over the previous month with 213 million gallons sold.

Numbers for July, when Germany made its way through the World Cup's knockout round, will not come out until the end of August. Considering they averaged 20 pints per person in for June, the numbers should also be pretty impressive.
