The brewer of Miller Lite, Castle and Peroni said in a trading update that the 5 % beer volume gain came after a 4 % rise in the year to March 2005, while its trading was in line with its expectations to see continued growth in underlying beer volumes.But the group warned North American trading was tough for its Miller business, with the United States No. 2 brewer seeing sales to retailers down 0.3 % in the half-year as U.S. leading brewer Anheuser-Busch fought back.
