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.
Texas Beer Consumption Goes Flat
The Beverage Information Group says Americans consumed less beer in 2010, guzzling 2.8 billion cases of beer less than the year before, for the fourth straight decline.
That amounts to a 1.9% drop in beer consumption, with the biggest drops being seen in consumption of light beer, which was the trendy rage in the 1980s.
Kim Forsythe, whose company operates several restaurants and bars around Texas, says drinkers are turning more to specialty beers and to non traditional drinks as they seek out a testy but less fattening beverage.
"An educated palate is trying more options that are being offered, from Mexico and Europe," he told 1200 WOAI's Berit Mason.
But the report says the gains in the specialty beer segment can't make up for losses caused by higher fuel costs, which leave people with less discretionary income, and high unemployment among core working-class beer drinkers.
"They're looking for 'skinny drinks,' now," Forsythe said. "We have other alcohol drinks now that are very popular."
Another factor which is influencing the decline in beer sales is a new concern about drunk driving, and far tougher enforcement of drunk driving laws.
The BIG says so called 'super premium beers,' as well as 'craft and specialty beers' are seeing an increase, something Forsythe is seeing among his Texas customers.
"It is becoming more sophisticated, the growth of home grown beers, and many communities now have their own local breweries," he said.
