Molson Coors has begun brewing in Russia. The newly-merged company confirmed yesterday (30 March) that it will begin selling Coors Fine Light Beer in the country within the next two months.

Molson Coors said it plans to invest around US$4m to promote the brand in Russia this year, with this investment reaching US$12m over the next three years.

The brewer plans to have 2% of the licensed beer market in Russia by 2006.
