Brewery news Australia: Alcohol consumption down 25% over the last 40 years
New research shows Australians are drinking a full 25% less alcohol than they did 40 years ago. While beer producers probably aren’t happy about this, there is a definite upside: it has dramatically curbed alcohol-related violence, FoodProcessing.com.au reported on January 23.

The government report, Australia’s Changing Drinking Habits, disproves commonly held beliefs that alcohol consumption and alcohol-related violence are increasing.

In 1974-75, Australians consumed an average of 13.1 litres of alcohol per person. Since the 1980s, this has declined, decreasing to 9.9 litres in 2012-13. Teenagers are drinking significantly less, with the proportion of young people abstaining increasing from 56% in 2007 to 72% in 2013.

Interestingly, alcohol-related violence has decreased by 30% in NSW in the last six years, despite the number of liquor licences increasing by 16%. Terry Mott, CEO of the Australian Liquor Stores Association, says this proves a lack of evidence between alcohol availability and violence.

This increase in the number of liquor stores has also not led to an increase in alcohol consumption.

“Australia’s drinking habits have changed significantly over the course of the four decades; we are more educated about alcohol and we are making much better choices than we ever have before,” said Mott.

“The majority of Australians consume ...More info on site

Brewery news Australia: Cocal-Cola Amatil, Casella Family Brands create joint venture to launch craft beers and ciders
Casella Family Brands has partnered with Coca-Cola Amatil in a joint venture to launch a range of Australian craft beers and ciders, Food Magazine reported on January 23.

Yenda—located approximately 550 kilometres west of Sydney—is not a conventional manufacturing hub. The broad appeal of Australian wines in the US, UK and Asian markets and the exponential rise in export sales in the mid-2000s has seen massive investment in wine storage, bottling lines and world class processes.

For Australian Beer Company general manager Derek O'Donnell, the partnership of Casella Family Brands with Coca-Cola Amatil is a strong foundation for a marriage made in heaven.

“Casella Family Brands is built on strong family values, combined with passion for success and an entrepreneurial spirit. Coca-Cola Amatil brings economies of scale and one of the leading routes to market capabilities in the domestic market,” O’Donnell said.

Craft beer sales are growing increasingly in popularity, despite a downturn in total beer sales nationally. Only 10 weeks after launching Yenda Pale Ale, it has performed well since its release, earning a silver medal at the Royal Sydney Beer Show and the Australian Craft Awards. The full Yenda range of Yenda Pale Ale, Yenda IPA, Yenda Hell (an unfiltered Helles lager) ...More info on site

Brewery news Belgium: Belgium’s leading brewers to raise their prices
InBev Belgium and Alken-Maes brewery will increase their Pilsen beer prices as from February, 1, Belga reported on January 22.

InBev explains the 1.7 eurocents increase per glass of beer by the necessity of financing its long-term investments. The brewing giant’s investments in its Belgian facilities increased by more than EUR100 mln per year.

Alken-Maes did not disclose the exact increase figure, stating that “it varies by product”. A company spokesperson, however, admitted that the majority of its brands will become more expensive.

Haacht brewery, another large beer maker in Belgium, plans to raise its prices at the beginning of March, by around 3% depending on the product.

Brewery news USA: AB InBev to idle bottling line in Newark, New Jersey and lay off 60 employees
Anheuser-Busch InBev plans to idle its bottling line in Newark, New Jersey, by the end of the first quarter, resulting in 60 layoffs, St. Louis Business Journal reported on January 22.

The Newark brewery produces several brands, the company said, including Budweiser and Bud Light.

"We are always looking for ways to improve the way we do business, and this includes optimizing the capabilities of our brewery system to meet consumer and geographic needs," Kevin Lee, general manager of the Newark brewery, said in a statement, adding that the decision to idle the line was made "after a thorough study."

"... We will move equipment that adds value to another brewery. For example, we plan to relocate the bottle line's multi-packer to Williamsburg," Lee said.

In November the Business Journal reported that recent A-B layoffs affected at minimum many dozens of employees across numerous departments, including information technology; field sales; procurement; and brand, experiential and trade marketing. Many of those cuts, but not all, were in St. Louis. The company closed its regional sales office in Charlotte, North Carolina, for example. However, last month the company announced it plans to invest $150 million to expand its metal container facility in Arnold, adding 70 jobs.

Brewery news Swaziland: Swaziland Beverages Limited announces price increases
Alcoholic beverages prices will be going up with effect from February 2, Swaziland Beverages Limited announced on January 21.

Beer Sales Manager Meshack Maseko stated that the new prices would affect mainly the 340ml and 750ml bottles which comprise beer, draughts, ciders and soft drinks of returnable and non returnable bottles when buying at wholesale price or at a drinking spot.

“Each and every time prices are reviewed for the new year hence the changes. We have increased just a few products but managed to maintain most of them,” stated Maseko.

He further said they had already sent information to their customers about the price changes which then will clarify on what has gone up and by how much.

In addition, Maseko highlighted that the average price increase was below inflation which had declined to 6.2 percent in the country.
