How much will Brazil's beer industry be affected by the surprise tax increase announced last week? With the FIFA World Cup just around the corner, brewers, particularly market leader AmBev, must have been licking their lips at the prospect of the tournament.

The head of Monster Beverage Corp has admitted the media glare has "taken its toll" on energy drinks.
