In 2008 beer production in Belarus fell by 0.4% to 3.53 mln hl.
A local peculiarity of the Belarusian beer market is a large share of beer in PET and considerable amount of imported production (about 20% of the market). The largest producer is the state-owned company Krinitsa, with a 38% share of national beer production in 2008. Other beer companies with strong market shares include Alivaria (Carlsberg Group), Syabar and Rechitsapivo (Heineken International), Lidskoe Pivo (Olvi) and the state-owned company Brestskoe Pivo.
