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. ...
“Catalogue of Russian Beer Producers 2018” includes 1070 businesses ranging from large subsidiaries of international companies to rather small restaurant and craft microbreweries.The catalogue includes 32 large breweries, 75 regional breweries, 693 industrial mini- and microbreweries as well as 270 restaurant breweries. ...
Global hop marketA local alternative to mass beer suggested by independent brewers has been successful and is now altering the global market. Beer is becoming more diversified, so transnational companies have to accept the new game rules and to switch focus to young and fast growing markets. All these processes increased the demand for aroma and bitter hop as well as their acreage expansion on two continents. However now there appeared a downward trend of alcohol consumption in the world, so even special sorts can soon turn to be sufficient. In this connection the dynamic American hop market is already facing some problems. EU hop producers have become more cautious, they are not racing to exceed the demand and look forward with more confidence, judging by the contract terms.
Hop Market in RussiaGermany still dominates the Russian market, yet over the recent two years one has been able observe a continuous success of Czech hop suppliers. Their expansion and growing popularity of hops from the United States became the drivers of supplies growth in 2016 despite the preceding modest harvest crop in the EU, as well as the factor of relative stability in 2017. In this connection, in 2017, the ratio of the varieties continued to shift towards the aroma ones, and the supplies of Magnum hop and other alpha varieties were reduced. However, the import of bitter hop pellets is partially replaced by extracts, especially from the major beer manufacturers. Total volumes of alpha acid supplies, according to our estimation, decreased by approximately 5% and returned to the level of 2015. Barth Haas Group continues dominating the hop products market; HVG also increased its weight. At the same time, Morris Hanbury significantly reduced the supplies in 2017.

The „Future Beverage Industry 20XX“ theme pavilion ventured a look into the future of the beverage industry. How can costs be cut? What technologies help to increase production? How can quality management be improved? Around a dozen companies presented visions and creative ideas for the future of the beverage industry in cooperation with the Versuchs- und Lehranstalt f?r Brauerei (Brewery Research and Training Institute) of Berlin. These ranged from new technology and software solutions and innovative sales aids to efficient logistics ideas.

So Brau Beviale was a complete success.“
47 % of the visitors definitely included a visit to the two theme pavilions in their tour of the exhibition.
955 beers for the European Beer Star Award - Consumers' Favourites
This popular international beer competition was launched jointly by Private Brauereien Bayern - the Bavarian private breweries association and honorary sponsor of the exhibition - and the German and European federations in 2004. 88 beer experts from 21 nations tasted and judged the beers in advance in the Doemens Brewing Academy on the basis of consumer criteria: What does the head look like? How does the beer feel in the mouth? How does it taste? Are the typical criteria for the kind of beer fulfilled? The beers were judged in 44 categories - from light beer to the new category of "ultra strong beer". Exhibitors and visitors at Brau Beviale 2010 who appreciate a genuine beer with character also had a substantial say here. They tested the gold medal beers on the first day of the exhibition and selected their Consumers' Favourites: Gold for Adriaen Brouwer Dark Gold, NV Brouwery Roman, Oudenaarde (B), Silver for Meinel's Weizenbock, Familienbrauerei Meinel GmbH, Hof (D), and Bronze for St?rtebeker Roggen-Weizen, Stralsunder Brauerei, Stralsund (D).
„Brau Beviale 2010 completely lived up to our expectations. Sustainable management, which is part of our company's philosophy, is perfectly represented here. Exhibiting at this event particularly enabled us to reach our SME customers and attract attention to our innovations - such as eccentric-support sunshades for the catering trade.“Tobias Jan Wenk, Gesch?ftsf?hrung WEBA-Fahnen GmbH & Co. KG, Baienfurt
PETpoint at Brau Beviale 2011
The next Brau Beviale takes place in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 9-11 November 2011 - with an important new feature: The two leading exhibitions for the beverage industry, drinktec in Munich and Brau Beviale, are to cooperate in the PET segment. The PETpoint, the PET segment at drinktec, will also be present at Brau Beviale in N?rnberg starting in 2011. The background to the cooperation is the exceptionally fast innovation cycle in this segment. The organization of the pavilion rests in the hands of the drinktec team in Munich. The PETpoint 2011 will be marketed as part of visitor promotion for Brau Beviale. Volker Kronseder, Chairman of the VDMA-Fachverband Nahrungsmittel- und Verpackungsmaschinen (German Food Processing and Packaging Machinery Association), Frankfurt: „The cooperation in the PET segment suits us fine, benefits our industry and naturally both exhibitions too.“
