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. ...

US. Illinois Craft Brewers One Step Closer to Settling Dispute
Small brewers "went into business with the right and authority to self-distribute," said state Sen. Donne Trotter, D-Chicago, who sponsored the legislation to protect a small brewery in his neighborhood.
A lawsuit filed last year by Anheuser-Busch against the Illinois Liquor Commission called into question beer makers' rights to directly sell their products to consumers. Larger breweries must work through the state's network of wholesalers and distributors, who tap into the corporate profits in exchange for storing and delivering beer.
Trotter's plan, which now moves to the Senate floor, would maintain that framework with slight alterations, designed to appease the federal judge who last year declared the state's liquor distribution laws discriminatory. The ruling set a March 31 deadline, now extended to May 29, for lawmakers to correct the system.
As the legislature scrambles for a solution, Anheuser-Busch is working hard to kill the bill.
"Anheuser-Busch has always contended that all brewers in Illinois can distribute.... all brewers," said legal counsel Ed Crane. "That's how the law reads and we believe that the liquor commission was the one that made the mistake here."
