Brewery news Costa Rica: Fifco inaugurates new brewery in Costa Rica
Costa Rica’s Florida Ice and Farm’s (Fifco) on Tuesday, March 6, inaugurated a new beer plant with a capacity to produce up to 74,000 cans of beer per hour, with an investment of US$15 million dollars, Q Costa Rica News reported.

The new facility will allow the national beer company – the Cervecercia de Costa Rica – to increase its production capacity of beer and other alcoholic beverages by 40%.

Ramón Mendiola, CEO of Fifco, explained to La Nacion that the expansion will allow the company to meet national demand and export products to the Central American and United States market.

Mendiola explained that the new state-of-the-art technology plant will allow the company to add 15 new jobs to the existing 6,441 employees.

In addition, the new plant reduces energy and water consumption in line with Fifco’s objectives of being a carbon neutral company.

Among the new equipment, there is a pasteurizer that eliminates microorganisms from beer bottles and preserves the product for longer. Also, water consumption can be lowered by 60% through a temperature control and water recirculation.

Brewery news Gabon: Beverages industry reports decline in output in 2017
According to figures from Société des brasseries du Gabon (Sobraga) and Sovingab, Gabon’s overall beverages output fell by 6.3% to 2.7 million hectolitres last year against 2.8 million hectolitres in 2016, due to weak demand in local market, Ecofin Agency reported on March 8.

Last year, the country produced 1.6 million hectolitres of beer and 961,024 hectolitres of soft drinks. Wine output was 44,713 hectolitres while that of other products was 44,474 hectolitres. Because of this, the branch’s turnover dropped from CFA167.8 billion in 2016 to CFA152.4 billion in 2017 (-9.1%).

In contrast, mineral water production increased by 17.9% during the same period, standing at 920,782 hectolitres. Likewise, the turnover in this sub-sector was nearly CFA15 billion, up by 1%, thanks to the Akewa products which significantly boosted sales.

Moreover, the interruptions of water supply boosted local demand for mineral water. Also, the number of employees rose to 73 with a payroll of CFA872.5 million, which means an increase by 7.4%.

Brewery news Luxembourg: Brasserie Nationale Bofferding reports stable sales in 2017
Brasserie Nationale Bofferding S.A., the brewery behind Bofferding and Battin brands, saw sales stabilise in 2017, amounting at 150,000 hectolitres and recording €4 mln in Ebitda, Delano.lu reported on March 8.

Publishing its annual results on March 7, the company retained its place as the country’s biggest brewer for volume.

Its production volume was bigger than that of Diekirch and Mousel and Simon combined. The brewery reported that its Battin range has gone from strength to strength, selling 41,400 hectolitres. The momentum of this brand is expected to continue with the addition of a Battin Brune at the end of February.

There were positive results for its Munhowen subsidiary, which manages sales and administration. Excluding the brewery’s own products, it sold 251,400 hectolitres of drinks, an increase of 29,340 hectolitres. Turnover rose 8.7% to reach €74.4 mln (up from €68.4 mln in 2016) while Ebitda rose 9% (from €5.69 mln) to reach €6.2 mln.

The brewery report observes that the beer market in Luxembourg’s catering sector declined 2%, echoing the situation across Europe. “This fall is compensated by an increase in demand for non-beer products,” the report said.

In 2017, the Brasserie Nationale installed photovoltaic panels, improved insulation and introduced new drying techniques, enabling it ...More info on site

Brewery news Belgium & the Netherlands: Belgian Trappist monks upset by Dutch supermarket re-selling their beers without permission
The monks of a Trappist monastery in Belgium are reportedly very upset that a Dutch supermarket is re-selling its beers without permission and for a huge mark-up, The Drinks Business reported on March 9.

The abbey of Saint-Sixtus in Westvleteren is one of the Low Countries’ renowned Trappist brewing communities and its beer is not only highly sought-after but also tricky to get hold of.

The beer is only sold at the abbey’s shop and a local café and all orders from the shop must be reserved in advance and then picked up in person. The monks even take note of the registration number of the car that will be used to pick up the beer and once a reservation has been made then the same telephone and registration number cannot be used again to place an order for 60 days.

In addition, all beer purchased must be for personal consumption and consumers must agree not to sell the beer on to third parties. In 2011, at a time when it needed funds to renovate its buildings, the abbey did grant permission to a retailer to sell its beer commercially, Belgian wholesaler Colruyt, and then in 2012 Dutch wholesaler Sligro, for the price ...More info on site

Brewery news Singapore: Singapore increasingly embracing craft beer
After trying a craft beer during a scuba diving trip in Bali, Mr Francis Khoo of Singapore fell in love.

In 2015, he opened microbrewery Little Island Brewing Co in Changi Village, offering about 15 craft beers brewed on site, The New Paper reported on March 8.

"What I like about craft beers is that they have a hoppier flavour and more body than mass-produced beers," he said.

The number of licensed microbreweries in Singapore has risen, from 12 in 2013 to 21 last year.

There is growing interest from Singaporeans, with businesses telling The New Paper they have seen more customers over the years.

Craft Brew Asia, an interest group that holds tasting events and brewing classes, has about 200 members now. When it started in 2004, it had only "a handful".

For Mr Khoo, 50, good ingredients and quality set such beers apart from those produced by mainstream brands.

He said: "For craft beer, we import and use a lot of ingredients like barley, wheat and different varieties of hops from countries like the UK, which is expensive. Some mass-produced beers and lagers may add rice instead of barley as a cheap substitute to get fermentable sugar."
