Beer market of Kazakhstan acquired both traits of East European countries and South Eastern Asia taking a transitional position between them by many criteria and consumption style. Yet there is a positive trend in beer production which differs Kazakhstan from most of the neighboring countries.

However, it faces dynamic processes such as fast growth of draft beer sales, up and downs of regional companies and Carlsberg Group’s ultimate expansion.

Ukrainian beer market 2018
- Better than yesterday
- Performance by value
- Positions of Ukrainian brewers
The beer market dynamics in Russia is approaching zero, yet major brewers are divided into those who developed considerably in 2017 and those who considerably reduced their volumes. For instance, company Efes has managed to substantially extend their sales due to restrained pricing policy and activity in the modern trade. Heineken has also demonstrated an excellent performance promoted by significant increase of advertisement budgets launching a non-alcohol sort of the title brand and unusual activity in the economy market segment. Carlsberg and AB InBev have been focusing on margins and lost a market share of their inexpensive brands. Serious dependence on PET package and mass enthusiasm about Zhigulevskoe have negatively impacted the most of big regional brewers, that have been for the first time pressed by the leaders in the key sales channels, especially in Volga and Central regions. In the small business there has been a noticeable slowdown in appearing of new restaurant breweries, yet the number of craft breweries has been growing rapidly. In 2018, the beer market is likely to grow a little, while the share of AB InBev Efes may decrease due to the integration. ...
Wisconsin brewer to buy Memphis bottling facility
City Brewing Co. plans to purchase the Hardy Bottling facility for $30 million and will invest another $11 million to update the plant and restart beer production, Memphis Mayor A C Wharton and company officials said.
City Brewing CEO George Parke said the company hopes to begin beer production at the Memphis facility in July, if all the proper licenses are approved. As a contract beverage producer, City Brewing makes and packages beer, tea and energy drinks for large beverage companies.
Parke said the company was looking for a third facility because its other locations in the Wisconsin cities of Latrobe and La Crosse are at or near capacity. The Memphis facility will be renamed Blues City Brewery.
Operations at its Wisconsin facilities are not expected to be affected, Parke said. The deal is expected to close at the end of April.
The company is receiving a $5.7 million tax break over 15 years. City and county governments are estimated to generate $33.5 million in revenue from the project over the 15 years, according to the Memphis/Shelby County Industrial Development Board.
The plant was built in 1971 and has been owned by the Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co. and Stroh Brewery Co. Carolyn Hardy and other investors bought the plant from Molson Coors in 2006 for $9 million.
A tornado damaged the plant in February 2008. It currently bottles only non-alcoholic beverages.
Wharton praised the company for bringing the much-needed jobs to Memphis. He said the improved facility could help revitalize the Hickory Hill neighborhood where it's located.
"Most people that I run into wake up and say, 'Can you find me a place to go to work today?'" Wharton said. "This answers that request."
The company said the new jobs are expected to create an average wage of $41,705 per year and include a benefits package.
