RESEARCH: Russian beer to continue growth
Russia's booming beer market increased volume sales by more than 12% last year and will continue to expand for the foreseeable future.

Current growth levels may be well below the 28% a year experienced between 1997 and 2001 but nonetheless remain healthy says the report.
