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.

US. Senators Tout Small Brewer Bill for Job Creation
In Delaware, Senator Chris Coons (D) visited Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton where he met with Dogfish owner, Sam Calagione. Coons, a champion of small business, said the goal of the bill was to encourage the continued growth of small brewers like Dogfish. Dogfish, which opened for business in 1995, has become one of fastest growing craft brewers in the state and despite their plans for expansion, have kept a policy of not purchasing automated equipment at the cost of jobs.
Last month, Delaware Congressman John Carney Jr. (D) showed similar interest in promoting the state's small brewers by attending the inaugural meeting of the Delaware Craft Brewers Guild. The House has a companion bill to S. 534, which is H.R 1236.
In addition to Senator Coons visit to Dogfish Head, Tuesday, New York Senator Charles Schumer (D) was on hand at Cooperstown Brewing Co. to pledge his support of S. 534, which would halve the current excise tax on small brewers' first 60,000 barrels to $3.50. Cooperstown president, Stan Hall, added that the reduced excise taxes would help his brewery to become more profitable and would lead to the addition of new hires.
