The brewery began building the facility in the city of Angarsk in September 2006, investing around 150 million euros ($190.5 million) in the construction. The brewery plans to produce some 1.8 million hectoliters annually for the Russian market, in particular Siberia and the Far East.
"We have received our permit to put the brewery into production, and the plant is now operating at full capacity," the spokesman said.
SUN InBev, founded in 1999, is Russia's second largest beer producer behind Baltika.
The company produces beer under Russian brands including Sibirskaya Korona, Klinskoye, and Tinkoff, and under foreign franchises including Stella Artois, Beck's, and Staropramen.
