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.

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.

India. Liquor ban may hit foreign tourists

There is also a great apprehension about police extorting money from people in the name of consuming liquor, feels a private guesthouse owner in Bodh Gaya.
The private guesthouse in the city residential areas also served liquor of the guest's choice. A large number of people from NGOs and corporate world used to get their choice of drinks in these guesthouses, a manager of a guesthouse in S K Puri locality said.
"People may obtain liquor from even a hardware and automobile repair shop at a premium price," said an erstwhile liquor shop vendor. "The decision to sell foreign made foreign liquor or wine or low-content alcohol like Breezer from state-run liquor shops in Bihar was only to lure high income group people or to attract visiting tourists on the pattern of Delhi or any other big cities. But now there is no scope for that also," said an MNC executive.
