Russia: Positions of Brewing Companies

The review contains an analysis of interim performance of brewers in the first half of 2019. There are rather dynamic changes behind a modest industry growth. Baltika is again experiencing a stage of volumes and market share slid due to competition with AB InBev Efes. Because of the price competition and presence expansion in the modern trade company #2. has come close to the leading position. At the same time sales of Heineken Russia have continued growing which makes the premium part of the portfolio heavier. The market premiumization trend had been also confirmed by import brands. MBC and Zavod Trekhsosenskiy have been the most successful among federal market players. The market share of independent regional brewers and Ochakovo have continued falling as they are being squeezed out by the market leaders at their competitive fields.

Ukrainian beer market 2019: companies and brands

In 2019 beer production and market have been still fluctuating about zero point. However, the past season was successful for brewers judging by the sales profitability. The price mix has improved due to rapid general market premiumization, as well as its particular aspect, the growth of import beer sales. By the season end AB InBev Efes improved its positions considerably. It turned out that consumers had not forgot Efes brands that had to leave the market, but started to recover rapidly. Against the stagnating market that meant sales decline of other companies, in the first place Carlsberg Group that most of all beneficiated from Efes exiting the market. PPB turned out to be stable to branding activity of its competitor and Obolon kept the same volumes and at the moment it is the absolute leader of the economy segment. The share growth of independent producers took place thanks to leading craft breweries, that so far do not have a big market weight, but they are rapidly gaining it.

Brewing industry in Kazakhstan 2019

During the first half of 2019, the majority of Kazakh brewers made their contribution into positive dynamics. Yet it was companies of the lower division, not the two transnational leaders that raised their production and sales. The shares of draft beer and aluminum can which is rapidly squeezing glass bottle out of the market, have been growing. The price segmentation has remained stable despite the substantial rise of retail prices and fluctuations of brand market shares, while the borders between segments have become blurred. The main events in the industry have been: the announced revision of the beer excise policy, launch of BeerKhan brand in the strong beer segment, and most important – purchasing assets of Shymkentbeer by Arasan.

US. New Committee Created for Brewpubs

A new group of brewers and brewery owners have been meeting with members of the Brewers Association Board and staff to look at ways to better serve the Association's brewery restaurant membership. The first meeting of the Brewpubs Committee was held in June, followed by the second this past July. The group will discuss issues that uniquely face small brewery restaurants, which national restaurant groups fail to address.

The May/June Industry Review issue of The New Brewer reports that in 2010, 1,033 of the 1,716 craft brewers in the United States were brewpubs (approx 60%). Last year, brewpubs produced 752,118 barrels of craft beer, and grew close to 7% from the year before. The average brewpub produces about 728 barrels of craft beer a year. This size, and unique challenges that members face spurred the creation of this member committee which focuses specifically on the topics and issues facing these small businesses.

The committee will meet on a month to month basis and, thus far, have already provided input aimed at selection of feature topics for the January/February (Brewpubs) issue of The New Brewer. The Committee has also identified server training as a key area that the Brewers Association can assist brewpub members better, and points to tools already available to members of the Association as valuable to Brewpubs.
