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. ...

Judge Rules Against Molson Coors in NHL Sponsorship Spat
The Ontario Superior Court ruled for Labatt, which claimed it already had a Canadian sponsorship agreement in place with the NHL before Molson Coors signed its seven-year North American sponsorship pact in February, the paper said. Labatt said in February that it negotiated a "good faith" contract extension through 2014, The Wall Street Journal reported at the time.
The NHL deal was a coup for Molson Coors, which had lost its sponsorship of the National Football League to rival Anheuser-Busch InBev NV (ABI.BT, BUD) last year. Anheuser-Busch owns Labatt, and Labatt brews Budweiser and Bud Light for the Canadian market.
The Molson Coors deal would make Molson Canadian the official beer of the NHL, with additional consideration for Coors Light.
Justice Frank Newbould recommended an injunction against an NHL-Molson Coors agreement "so far as the Canadian rights are concerned," the Toronto Star reported. He said Molson Coors knew the league was already partnered with Labatt, according to that paper.
Molson Coors is deciding whether to appeal the decision, the Toronto Star reported, while the NHL declined comment.
