The trend of complication of Russian beer market is going on and in several directions at the same time. The range has got wider, the import and small segments are growing, namely craft beer, alcohol-free beer and special flavor beer.

AB InBev Efes, Heineken, MBC and Pivzavod Trekhsosenskiy have exceeded the market, Carlsberg was developing slower than the market and Ochakovo as well as some other mid-sized breweries have been cutting down their volumes. To a big extent brewers’ performance was connected to their ability to reach agreement with networks, sacrifice their margin and enter new markets.

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.

A visit to hall 7A at Brau Beviale 2010 was a must. Here the largest pavilion sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology in the whole of Germany in the current exhibition year presented 28 young innovative companies. Among the exhibitors:

Ute Foellmer, European Sales Manager, Aquafine GmbH, Elmshorn: „Our business is the disinfection of water using UV rays. The exhibition was more international than we had thought. We welcomed many end customers on our stand, especially from Eastern Europe.“
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.
Marco Di Muro, Project Management, Zeno Track GmbH, Vienna: „We are very satisfied with exhibiting in the theme pavilion. The feedback from the visitors was extremely positive. Especially the industry's big names were impressed by our tracking systems for forklift trucks. We were also able to use the proximity to related companies to initiate cooperations. 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
