It seems like it's possible to find beer from almost every corner of the world today. What are the countries without any national brands / breweries?

  • This seems too broad for this format. There's a Wikipedia article compiling information on countries that do have national brands/breweries en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_and_breweries_by_region Feb 6, 2014 at 19:51

    Not really. The negation makes the scope it sufficiently narrow. Without the negation, it would be too broad.

    I agree with @SantaC. There shouldn't be more than 20-30 countries that fit this description and they should all fall into 2-3 neat categories. Feb 6, 2014 at 21:19

    20-30 .. humhum ... I would have bet much less than that ...

  • Does Antarctica count; it's not a country, but still? Feb 6, 2014 at 23:25

While not exhaustive, countries that observe strict Islamic law, such as Iran, do not allow the production of alcoholic beverages.

In the case of Iran, there are some companies that produce non-alcoholic beer, but none that produce a traditional alcoholic beer.
