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. The market has remained consolidated in the hands of two international players because of its small size. 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. Excessive mainstream segment has declined over the recent years, yet, Zhigulevskoe and national brands with regional links have yielded their positions to a range of new products. In our review special attention was paid to regional analysis of the markets. In 14 regions of Kazakhstan we compared the companies’ positions, the market price segmentation and DIOT channel development. Besides we have compared the beer market of Kazakhstan to neighboring countries. ...

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. ...
UK. Worthington’s new head brewer announced
Appelbee, currently innovation and development manager for Molson Coors, will take charge at the recently refurbished microbrewery in Burton-on-Trent following Wellington’s retirement.
Appelbee said: “To take on Steve’s mantle is both a huge responsibility and honour. Under his stewardship, White Shield has become recognised as one of the best pints in the country and Steve, rightly regarded as one of the country’s best brewers.
“These are some huge boots to fill but working with the team here at Burton to maintain the legacy that Steve leaves behind is a prospect I’m relishing.”
In his role as innovation and development manager, Appelbee was responsible for overseeing new product development at Molson Coors.
Outgoing head brewer Wellington said: “Despite the lure of retirement, leaving behind the brewery will be a tough day. It is, however, made easier knowing that I’m leaving it in Jim’s capable hands.
“Fans of William Worthington’s beers can expect more of the same; the same great IPA and the innovative seasonals and special ales that have become a feature here at Burton.”
Worthington’s White Shield was awarded silver in the bottled beer category by the Campaign for Real Ale at the Great British Beer Festival earlier this month.
