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. ...

India. The Beer Cafe is looking to raise nearly $40 mn from PE funds
“The beer chain is looking to raise fresh round of growth capital to expand its business in newer geographies. BTB has been out in the market to raise capital and is expected to close the round by the middle of next month (February),” said one of the two persons quoted above.
The company has hired investment bank Avendus Capital to help raise the funds. This would be the third round of fund-raising for the chain, and comes after a gap of over a year.
The company had previously raised two rounds of funding from venture capital firm Mayfield Fund. During its last round of fund-raising in December 2014, it raised Rs.30 crore from Granite Hill Capital and Mayfield Fund.
“Its existing investor Mayfield is expected to back the company during this round and they have also met all the large funds,” said the second person cited above.
Both spoke on condition of anonymity.
Rahul Singh, the founder of The Beer Cafe, said in an email response to queries from Mint that the process of raising funds would start “in April 2016, so should be able to close in 3-4 months from there”.
Nikhil Khattau, managing director at Mayfield Advisors Pvt. Ltd, declined to comment for this story.
The beer chain, which started operations in 2012, runs 29 outlets across 10 cities, including Mumbai, New Delhi, Chandigarh, Bengaluru, Amritsar, Gurgaon and Pune.
It offers imported and craft beers and has been looking to expand to the southern part of the country. The chain offers its customers 50 brands of beer from across 17 countries.
According to data available with the Registrar of Companies (RoC), The Beer Cafe’s revenue more than doubled to Rs.33 crore during financial year 2014-15, from Rs.13.7 crore the previous year.
The company reported a loss of Rs.11.3 crore in 2014-15.
Fund-raising by restaurant and cafe chains increased last year. According to VCCEdge, the financial research platform of VCCircle, private equity investors infused $232.5 million in the restaurant space in 2015, a jump of 80% over the previous year.
“It’s still an early stage of market development in beer cafes. There is a lot of interest from consumers as well as from investors in this format of cafes,” said Ravi Wazir, a hospitality business consultant based in Mumbai.
The number of beer cafes and microbreweries will increase in the coming years, he added.
