Brewery news Romania: Beer market up more than 2% in January-July this year
The Romanian Beer Association reported a growth by over 2 percent in volume of the beer market in the first seven months of the year, compared with the same period of 2016, the Business Review reported on September 27.

“The beer evolution during January-July was a positive one, but moderate,” said Julia Leferman, general director of the Romanian Beer Association.

The beer sector has an important role in the development of the Romanian economy, with locally produced beer accounting for more than 97 percent of the total volume of beer consumed in the country, and the usage of ingredients from the local agriculture accounting for 70 percent.

Leferman added: “To buy a litre of beer, a Romanian has to work 22 minutes, while a German needs to work only 8 minutes and a Dutch 9 minutes. The intervention of an unpredictable economic factor can increase this gap anytime, with negative consequences on the entire chain connected to the beer production: agriculture, HoReCa, retail, transports, packaging industry.”

The beer sector creates 85,000 direct and indirect jobs in Romania, it is reported.

Brewery news South Korea: Hite Jinro mulls sale of one of its three breweries in Korea
Hite Jinro Co., one of South Korea's largest distillers, said on September 29 it is considering selling one of its beer factories to enhance its production efficiency, Yonhap News reported.

Hite Jinro made the announcement in a regulatory filing, though it said no decision has been made yet.

The company has three beer factories in South Korea and their combined annual output amounted to 662,000 kilolitres in 2016.

Brewery news USA: Boston Beer affirms it ‘has no plans to be part of larger beer company anytime soon’
Despite speculation that financial headwinds could cause the country’s largest craft brand to look to be acquired, Boston Beer Co. Inc. executives say the company is proud to be an independent craft brewer, the Boston Business Journal reported on September 28.

The stock price for Boston Beer rallied 4 percent on September 25 after one analyst speculated that Boston Beer could be acquired if financial problems persist.

Credit Suisse analyst Laurent Grandet said in a report that he was more bullish on Boston Beer than in the past, given the recent success of hard-seltzer brand Truly. But he also said there was still a lot of uncertainty, given how the company’s chief marketing officer, Jonathan Potter, would change the brand and when the search for a new CEO — already six months running — would conclude.

Though the company's second quarter had been positive, the long-term direction of the brand was up in the air, given increased competition from other craft brewers.

“We remain cautious on the trajectory of the business in 2018 and beyond. Samuel Adams brand is declining in both retail and on-premise and we don't think this could improve before mid-2018,” Grandet said.

If a financial turnaround doesn't occur within the next ...More info on site

Brewery news The Czech Republic: Brewers seeking to reclaim pub drinkers
Czech beer has an international worldwide reputation but there are worries that on the home market at least it could be losing its appeal, especially in local pubs and among its most fervent fans. That’s one of the reasons for nationwide action being staged by brewers, pubs, and restaurants, Radio Prague reported on September 27.

A five day celebration of Czech beer – hopefully without too much of a hangover – was launched across the country on September 27 with dozens of breweries and hundreds of pubs and restaurants taking part. It’s framed around St. Wenceslas’ day – the patron of Czech beer and malt as well as the patron saint of the nation – which is marked on the following day.

But the Czech beer industry currently has its worries and could do with help from the saintly patron. For all their success in conquering foreign markets, big brewers and small are concerned that they might be becoming increasingly disconnected from their domestic drinkers, especially those in traditional pubs.

The latest figures suggest that only around four out of 10 beers are now consumed in Czech pubs with the increasing trend now for beer to be bought in shops and ...More info on site
