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.
Russia: Positions of Brewing CompaniesThe 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 brandsIn 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 2019During 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. Buffalo Developer seeks Erie Freight House remnants for brewery project
Ketry has been in negotiations with developer Samuel J. Savarino over a possible deal in which the nearly 150-year-old Erie Freight House would be torn down, with the timbers and other material from the building saved and used in the construction of a new building, likely on Ganson Street, on the other side of the Buffalo River.
“It’s a little premature,” Ketry said Wednesday after an event to promote tourism by marketing the downtown area as a Buffalo Brewery District – one or two of which could be located in the Erie Freight House. “There’s a lot of negotiations going on.”
Savarino Cos. and FFZ Holdings plan to knock down the crumbling Erie Freight House building along the Buffalo River and replace it with a $15 million project centered on a new five-story building with 48 riverfront apartments.
Savarino said he would like to be able to reach a deal that would allow Ketry and his partners to use the material from the Erie Freight House building as part of a new project. The two sides, however, have not been able to reach an agreement on the cost.
“Our goal is to try to save that property,” Ketry said. “The potential is to take it apart and put it back together.”
If a deal is reached, Savarino would end up paying Ketry and his partners, which include Jon M. Williams, chief executive of the OSC Group, a Buffalo construction and demolition firm, to tear down the building and allow them to use any of the materials in the construction of their new building. The two sides are about $200,000 apart, Savarino said. “The idea was to save whatever could be saved,” he said. “There’s scrap value and value in saving some of the timbers.”
Savarino’s proposal to demolish the Erie Freight House has raised the ire of preservationists, who say the metal-clad building, which dates to the 1860s, is the last surviving example of the type of freight house that played a key role in the city’s development as a hub for waterborne commerce.
Savarino has countered that the building, which incurred a partial roof collapse, has deteriorated too much to be worth saving and has lost much of its historic character through a series of alterations over the years.
Ketry declined to say where the Erie Freight House Event Center and Breweries would be built, other than to say it would be less than a quarter-mile from the freight house’s current location on Ohio Street.
Preliminary plans envision as many as two breweries on the site, which also would feature summer riverfront concerts, a kayak club and winter pond hockey leagues.
Doug Swift, a developer, preservationist and past president of the Roycroft Campus Corp., also has been working on the project with Ketry.
Savarino said he has not applied for a permit to demolish the building, although he has agreed to some modifications to his original plan to meet concerns of groups such as Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper. As part of those changes, Savarino said he agreed to move the building 25 feet back from the Buffalo River.
