Brewery news Cyprus: Beer sales up 3.6% in January-October
Beer deliveries during January to October 2018 reached 37.10 million litres, recording an increase of 3.6 per cent compared to the same period of 2017, data released by the Cyprus Statistical Service on November 13 shows.

The increase is mainly attributed to local consumption, which is in turn connected to the number of tourists visiting the island. Local consumption during the period was 36.14 million litres, recording an increase of 3.71 per cent on an annual basis.

On the contrary, beer exports for the same period recorded a small drop of 0.60 per cent compared to the previous year and fell to 0.96 million litres.

Total beer deliveries (local consumption and exports) in October 2018 reached 3.58 million litres, which constitutes a historic record high, an 18.6 per cent increase over the previous year.

Exports in October however recorded a great drop reaching only 55,606 litres of beer compared to 92,410 in October 2017 and recording a drop of 40 per cent.

July saw the highest beer deliveries in Cyprus, during which a total of 5.36 million litres were delivered. In 2017 June was the month with the highest beer deliveries reaching 5.46 million litres.

Brewery news Japan: Craft beers conquering consumers in Japan
On an unusually warm October day, beer brewers from across Japan set up their tents in an amusement park south of Tokyo. On offer were melon beers, brown-sugar beers, and soy-sauce beers. Visitors at the Yokohama Kanazawa Craft Beer and Gourmet Festa didn’t bat an eyelid, Nippon.com reported on November 12.

For decades, Japanese beer meant only one thing: pilsner-style pale lagers made by the country’s handful of major brewers. But the market is changing rapidly today, and the change is being led by craft-beer makers keen to shake up the industry. New flavors and ingredients—including exotic elements like soba, miso, sweet potato, and Japanese pepper—are transforming the market, along with the regulatory changes. The result is more variety in both brews and drinkers.

The 17 craft beer makers at the festival in Yokohama’s Hakkeijima Sea Paradise, an aquarium and theme park, hailed from beer-making hotspots like Tokyo and Kanagawa as well as far-flung prefectures like Okinawa, Okayama, and Kagawa. The latter was represented by mamemame brewery from Shōdoshima, an island in the Inland Sea famed for its olive plantations—and its soy sauce.

“This is a dry stout beer made in the imperial stout style,” says mamemame owner and founder Nakata Masaya, pouring ...More info on site

Brewery news The Czech Republic: Czech men drinking lowest volume of beer in 14 years
Consumption of beer among Czech men is among the lowest registered in 14 years, suggests a survey carried out by CVVM agency. The weekly consumption of beer among Czech men has dropped to 7.6 half-litres, which is more than one half-litre less than last year.

On the contrary, consumption of beer among Czech women has increased to 2.7 half-litres a week, which is an increase by around 2.5 decilitres, and is the highest since 2014.

According to the study carried out by CVVM in the course of September, nearly nine out of ten Czech men and nearly every second Czech woman drink beer occasionally.

However, the number of Czech men who drink beer occasionally has been decreasing for some time. The study suggests that their number has dropped from 91 percent in 2015 to 86 percent in September of this year. Men between the ages of 18 and 29 are the biggest beer drinkers, followed by the age group from 30 to 44 years.

The number of occasional beer consumers among women has dropped by ten percentage points to 49 percent. On the other hand, there has been a significant rise in the number of regular beer drinkers among women in ...More info on site

Brewery news South Korea: Brewers concerned about stricter advertising regulations
South Korea’s brewers are expressing concerns over a government move to more strictly regulate alcohol advertising, company officials said on November 14.

The stricter rules are feared to adversely affect their bottom lines at a time when they're suffering from falling profits due to the growing popularity of imported beer, they said.

According to the Ministry of Health and Welfare, liquor makers will be banned from showing celebrity endorsers drinking alcoholic beverages or making "ahh" sounds in their ads.

Starting from 2020 at the earliest, songs offering alcoholic beverages will be prohibited from ads as well.

Also, alcohol advertising will not be broadcast before and after TV programs for minors.

Digital multimedia broadcasting (DMB) and internet protocol television (IPTV) operators will be subject to a regulation that bans alcohol advertising from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., as radio and television broadcasters currently are.

As for print ads, brewers and distillers will be unable to put their ads up at subways, sea ports and airports.

The stricter regulations are expected to deal a severe blow to domestic beer makers, which have tried to appeal to young consumers with ads that show K-pop idols and celebrities enjoying their products, amid the intensifying competition with beer importers.

For example, Hite Jinro ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Heineken resumes brewing its flagship lager in the UK
Heineken has resumed brewing its flagship lager in the UK. The brewer said the decision was nothing to do with Brexit but had been planned for some time as part of its global commitment to more sustainable brewing, Inapub reported on November 15.

It is now brewing 60 per cent of UK volumes of Heineken in its Manchester brewery.

Back in 2003 Heineken took the decision to pull its 3.4 per cent ABV UK version of Heineken, which was brewed here, and sell only the higher strength version of the lager brewed in the Netherlands and imported.

A spokesperson for the brewery said: "In an exciting development, under the expert guidance of Heineken master brewers, we now have the expertise and specialist brewing equipment to brew some of our high quality, great tasting Heineken lager in the UK as we do in Zoeterwoude in The Netherlands.

"We began brewing small volumes in March this year, and now brew approximately 60 per cent of the UK volume. This supports our ongoing commitment to finding more sustainable brewing solutions, as globally we seek to 'Brew A Better World.' Importantly, the multi million pound investment in Manchester cements our commitment to the city – benefitting the community, ...More info on site

Barley news Canada: Barley area, production forecast to increase in 2018/19
For 2018-19, barley-seeded area in Canada increased by 13% from last year’s record low level of 2.334 mln ha, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada said in their November report.

Production is estimated to increase to 8.2 million tonnes due to the higher harvested area, despite a below-average total yield.

With higher production and sharply lower carry-in stocks, total supply is forecast to decrease by 5% to 9.5 mln tonnes.

Total domestic use is forecast to increase by 3% to 6.148 mln tonnes due to slightly higher feed and industrial use.

Exports are forecast to decrease by 17% to 2.4 mln tonnes due to lower total supplies.

Barley carry-out stocks are forecast to decrease by 20% to 1.0 mln tonnes or near record low levels.

The Lethbridge cash feed barley price is forecast to increase moderately from 2017-18, the analysts said.

In Western Canada, the barley harvest is mostly complete as good weather allowed the harvest to progress rapidly in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Barley in Manitoba, and the early harvested crop in Alberta and Saskatchewan, is generally of good quality. Due to the late harvest, the availability of competing feed grain is also above average, especially all wheat. Lower supplies of quality feed ...More info on site

Barley news Canada: Malting barley producers targeting two main buyers
North America is seeing an explosion in the craft beer sector. While craft beer still only represents a small portion of the total beer sold in North America, the beer uses three to four times more malt per unit, the Western Producer reported on November 14.

The rising North American craft beer sector and strong demand out of China are both good news stories for Canada’s malt barley sector, but those two customers have different needs which can also create some challenges, said industry officials speaking at the annual Grain World conference in Winnipeg Nov. 13.

Lorelle Selinger, North American supply chain manager with Cargill Malt, and Peter Watts, managing director of the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre, gave a joint presentation on the industry that highlighted two key trends.

China, the world’s largest beer maker, is seeing a shift from low quality beer to higher quality beer, which also necessitates a shift to higher quality barley, which is good for Canada. At the same time, North America is seeing an explosion in the craft beer sector. While craft beer still only represents a small portion of the total beer sold in North America, the beer uses three to four times more malt ...More info on site
