Highlights

  • Russia and Ukraine are among the top five barley-producing countries.

  • Diageo PLC (NYSE: DEO) stock gave a return of over 19% in the past 12 months.

  • Molson Coors Beverage Company (NYSE: TAP) net sales surged over 14% in Q4, FY21.

As summer approaches, the demand for light alcoholic beverages such as beer will likely rise. But the Russia-Ukraine conflict has raised concerns over barley supplies, a key ingredient in beer production. Rising barley prices would also bump up the production costs.

Barley prices, which accounts for roughly 30% of the total retail marketing cost for alcoholic beverages, rose by over 62% YoY and about 5% QoQ in the final quarter of the previous year.

Let's explore how these five beer stocks performed amid the escalating geopolitical tensions.
