At one end of the production spectrum there are 2/3 of breweries outputting less than 10 thousand decaliters. Their net share amounts to as little as 0.2% of the total beer output volume. On the other end there are 6 federal groups accounting for almost 80%. ...
Dmitry Nekrasov’s Philosophy — on the Past, Present and Future of Ukrainian Brewing IndustryA meeting with Dmitry Nekrasov always turns into a training course: “Introduction to brewing business“.

The market of import beer in Russia: review and databasesThe market of import beer is rapidly growing and changing. But while in the past years it was growing due to brands variety, in 2019 major and affordable brands from TOP-10 were developing actively. It seems that the fact of a brand origin from far abroad counties, even if it is not well known but has moderate price and good distribution provides for million liters of sales in the territory of Russia. Among distributors AB InBev Efes was far behind, yet the role of Baltika and suppliers of the second row got more important. The boom of German brands was followed by stagnation of import from other traditional regions (and Belarus) instead the supplies from Mexico, Lithuania and Asian countries grew considerably.
«Viking Malt» September Barley Report
Barley harvesting is finished and about 20-25 % of malting will be downgraded to feed quality because of high proteins and rain damages.
Average results of samples received:
Screenings above 2.5 mm 89.9%
Lithuania will not be self sufficient with crop11- the shortage is expected to be about 20000 MT.
Estimated 80-90 % of the total barley is harvested. In the south of Finland (malting barley areas) the figure is even higher.
Average yield for the barley is estimated to be 3400 kilos per ha.
Estimated quantity of malting barley will be 300-310 000 tons. Due to low screenings and high protein levels acceptance percentage for the malting barley will be around 60 %.
Finland will be self sufficient with malting barley and there is also a surplus volume to be exported if the quality is acceptable.
Harvest in general is proceeding very slowly. Harvest normally starts at first in the south and then moves north. This year harvest of malting barley started at the same time in the whole country and harvest is still going on in both parts of the country. Most regions in the grain producing part of Sweden had 150-200% of normal rainfall during august. The South and West of Sweden have had difficult weather conditions since early august while the Eastern and Northern part of the grain producing area had quite good weather conditions during first half august. Barley still standing on the fields have been downgraded to feed. As a consequence there is some concerns about the malting barley quality because of pre-germination has occurred in some fields or more correct in some parts of some fields where it have been problems with lodging or straw breaking. The main actions from the Coops to secure the quality are that they separate deliveries with content of pre-germinated or coloured kernels from barley accepted as malting barley. Our own evaluation of qualities from different regions is proceeding on full speed. Although some volumes will not be accepted as malting barley there will be a surplus when the local demand has been covered. We estimate that the total malting barley harvest will reach 440 – 450 000 tons, the share for different regions on page 3. It is still too early to confirm the final volume of quality malting barley, analyses of pre-samples is ongoing and we will keep you informed on updated
