Therefore, governments of many countries pursue a policy of quantitative restriction and improve the quality (culture) of consumption alcohol production. Russia in this list is not exception. Analysis of the alcohol market is the most interesting from the point of view of institutional approach with the many features of its structure and functioning characteristics. The aim of this study is to identify the true causes of the institutional changes in the Russian market, as well as analysis of the consequences of such transformations.
