News Articles

Barley news Canada: Barley production could jump 1.3% this year - survey
Statistics Canada’s July crop production survey sees rising production of barley this year but declines for canola, wheat, soybeans, corn and oats.

The survey of over 13,000 farmers found Canola production is expected to decline by 10 percent and all wheat production over 3 percent.

Neil Townsend is senior market analyst with Farmlink Marketing Solutions.

He says the survey is somewhat out of date because there has been hot dry weather since July.

Canola production will fall 2 million tons due to a smaller acreage and lower yields.

Total wheat production according to the July survey will be 29 million tonnes down from 30 million in 2017.

Spring wheat will drop almost 3 percent while durum will jump 1.34 percent.

Barley will jump 1.3 percent to almost 8 million tons.

Townsend says harvest on the prairies is going well with high quality crops and no big surprises in yield.

Brewery news USA: Constellation Brands banking on popularity of Mexican beer
Cravings for Mexican beer continue to grow at a fast pace in the U.S., while the taste for domestic beers lags. Sales of imports increased 8.4% last year, driven by Mexican beers, which represented about 70% of sales of imported beer, according to data from IRI Worldwide. Nine Mexican beer brands ranked in the U.S. Top 54 by sales, the Motley Fool reported on August 31.

Domestic premium beers like Bud, Coors, and Miller still dominate, with about 40% of sales in the U.S. market. But the premium brands saw sales in dollars erode by 2.9% in 2017, according to information from IRI.

Craft beers and domestic ultra-premiums like Michelob Ultra are attracting consumers, with revenue up 5.6% and 11.3% respectively in 2017. But with IRI data showing craft beers holding 12% of the U.S. market and ultra-premiums 7%, it takes both to roughly equal the sales power of imports.

Constellation Brands sells some of the top-selling Mexican beers in America and isn't content to simply ride the wave of popularity. The company continues to look for new ways to grow.

Constellation Brands held two of the top seven spots in last year's IRI ranking of beer sales with Corona Extra ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, TX: Roadmap Brewing Co. to open its doors on September 15
All roads lead to beer. That’s the slogan for Roadmap Brewing Co. and come Sept. 15, the road to San Antonio’s newest brewery leads to 723 N. Alamo St., mySanAntonio.com reported on August 31.

Located just a half mile from Alamo Plaza, Roadmap will edge out the Alamo Beer Co. as the closest brewery to the Alamo when it opens its doors at noon that day and pours the first beer.

The husband and wife team of Dustin and Hannah Baker, along with parents Scott and Joan Baker, make Roadmap a family operation. The brewery is a culmination of an idea started more than two years ago.

“My dad (Scott) always had a dream to open a bar after he retired, but I was able to convince him that a brewery was the better way to go,” said Dustin Baker, the Roadmap brewmaster. “He’s the financial arm of the operation. I’m the sweat-equity guy.”

Baker, who brews with a seven-barrel system, plans to have eight or nine beer varieties available during the opening. Roadmap has room for 12 beers and one cider on the tap line. Four flagship beers, which are stored in a walk-in refrigeration unit, include: Mama Duke’s IPA, a Kölsch style ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, NY: Evil Twin Brewing to open its first physical brewery in Ridgewood
After more than two years of planning and delays, Evil Twin Brewing is set to open its first physical brewery in the world in Ridgewood, QNS.com reported on August 31.

The acclaimed craft beer company, launched in 2010 by Denmark native Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergso, has until now created its arsenal of at least 40 beers served in 35 countries using different breweries around the globe. Now it aims to have its own operation inside the former banquet hall at 1616 George St. open sometime in November, Jarnit-Bjergso said.

The space will not only include the beer production and packaging inside the building, but also an outdoor beer garden and a year-round greenhouse with a bar inside of it. While it was a coincidence to end up in Ridgewood, just two miles from his home in Brooklyn, Jarnit-Bjergso said that once he saw the building and the surrounding area he knew it was the right fit.

“Being in an area that is up-and-coming and is changing so fast was very attractive to us,” Jarnit-Bjergso said. “It’s a satisfying feeling when people say we’re going to help change the neighborhood.”

The brewer began leasing the building in 2016 from fellow Denmark native Torkil Gudnason, a renowned fashion ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, KS: Not Lost Brewing Co. coming to Ottawa, Kansas in March 2019
When Melody Gentry and her husband, Dusty, used to go out for drinks, she often ordered a cocktail because she didn’t like the taste of beer.

But instead of savoring the intoxicating flavors swirling around in her glass, she usually found herself disappointed after the first sip.

It was something that occurred again and again.

“I always wanted something that tasted the same wherever I could get it,” she said. “But it never did.”

The flavors just always seemed off.

The two have a passion for travel, and so, on their journeys, began attending various craft beer festivals and visiting breweries, sampling different brews, and in turn, broadening Melody’s tastes beyond commercial domestic beer varieties. Back at home, they tried hitting up as many festivals and breweries they could find.

“I told him, ‘Why don’t we learn how to do this?’” she said.

And soon, Not Lost Brewing Co. was born, The Ottawa Herald reported on September 4.

Starting out, Dusty extensively researched brewing methods by reading books and eventually developing recipes.

“We just started seeing what worked, and what didn’t,” she said. “It was trial and error.”

That was more than four years ago. Since then, the couple has brewed at least 30-40 varieties out of their Ottawa home. ...More info on site

Brewery news Brazil: Heineken’s brewery in Brazil’s north-east subject of land dispute
The rights to spring water supplying an important Heineken plant in Brazil’s north-east are the subject of a legal dispute, in a case being closely watched by foreign investors in Latin America’s largest country, the Financial Times reported on August 31.

A local businessman, Maurício Brito Marcelino da Silva, is fighting a court battle with the government for the rights to mineral resources at the plant site in Alagoinhas, Bahia state, including the spring being used by Heineken.

“They [Heineken] will have to stop the factory or, if they want to continue using the water, they’ll have to sit down with Mauricio,” said a lawyer for the businessman on the court decision.

Heineken said it was not a party to the case and the dispute would not affect its operations in Alagoinhas.

Heineken bought the Bahia plant early last year as part of its $700 mln acquisition of the Brazilian operations of Japan’s Kirin, a deal that was seen as a vote of confidence in Brazil as it struggled to emerge from recession.

The deal made Heineken the second-biggest brewer in the country, which is the world’s third-largest beer market. Kirin had a 17 per cent market share, larger than ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Major brewers innovating in ‘colour-free’ beers
Japan’s major beer manufacturers have innovated a selection of beer drinks and alcohol-free beer to be ‘colour-free’, the Drinks Insight Network reported on August 31.

These innovations present a significant visual impact and certainly catch the interest of inquisitive Japanese consumers. However, is “colour-free” really right for these products?

Early movers include Asahi Breweries with Asahi Clear Craft, which it made available via selected Asahi-owned bars in a marketing trial. The drink is a transparent colourless happoshu – and happoshu is a beer-related tax category of sparkling low-malt beverage. It’s similar to conventional beer but does not follow the traditional beer recipe of having high malt content.

Suntory’s All-Free All-Time – also an early mover – is a new clear-colour alcohol-free beer. It has been launched as a line extension of Suntory All-Free, which is Suntory’s core alcohol-free beer brand. The drink not only has the interesting colourless visual, but it also comes in a PET plastic bottle which is unusual in the alcohol-free beer category. Similar to its sister All-Free branded products, this new beverage also contains no calories or carbohydrates – so it is in the realms of beer-flavoured carbonated water. Suntory Beer says these new attributes allow consumers to enjoy ...More info on site

Brewery news World: Heineken successfully places EUR600 mln of 8.5 year notes
Heineken NV, the world's second-largest beer-maker, has announced that it has successfully placed €600 million of 8.5-year notes with a coupon of 1.25% and €650 million of 12.5-year notes with a coupon of 1.75%.

The notes will be issued under the company's Euro Medium Term Note Programme and will be listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.

The proceeds from the notes issuance will be used for general corporate purposes, which may include repayment of indebtedness and/or acquisitions.

The maturity dates of the notes are 17 March 2027 and 17 March 2031.

Deutsche Bank, ING, JPM, MUFG and Société Générale acted as book runners, and ABN AMRO, ANZ, Rabobank, BBVA, Raiffeisen Bank International, Santander and Banca IMI as co-managers.

In July of this year, the beer-maker cut its full-year margin forecasts due to currency weakness in some more profitable markets and expansion in Brazil.

Brewery news Singapore: ThaiBev earns title of world’s ‘cheapest alcohol name’
Thai Beverage pcl (ThaiBev) has earned the title of the world’s “cheapest alcohol name” at Goldman Sachs, as the Bangkok-based brewer is now the worst performer in its consumer stocks coverage, the Malaysian Reserve reported on September 4.

And analysts led by June Zhu said a turnaround in its operations in the financial year 2019 (FY19) will give the stock a nice lift.

Since losing S$6.9 billion (RM20.65 billion) this year, ThaiBev now trades at 15.3 times of future earnings — below its 10-year average — while the MSCI World Beverages Index trades at 19.9 times, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

“The stock has reached its bottom, both on earnings and valuation,” June Zhu and Manik Mahajan, analysts at Goldman Sachs (Singapore) Pte Ltd wrote in a report last week.

“FY19 will mark the start of the turnaround” due to forecast improvements in farm incomes, wages and election spending. Shares of ThaiBev closed 4% higher, the biggest gain in almost two months on higher than the three-month average volume.

The company’s management is anticipating that higher agricultural income in Thailand and a strategy to replace short-term debt with long-term loans will improve finances next year.

Sanford C Bernstein analysts Euan McLeish and Yan Li upgraded ...More info on site
