Brewery news China: China’s consumers looking for better brews
In a country that loves its hot beverages, beer is one thing most Chinese enjoy cold. But as of late, beer has been on a hot streak, as evidenced by national sales figures. And the target market in China has gradually shifted to middle and high-end drinkers, with more quality brewed into every sip, CGTN reported on May 6.

Whether it tastes great or is less filling, China's beer drinkers now want a better brew. In the past, the buzz was all about cheaper domestic brands. But now, consumers have more options in buying, Bi Chaojiao, the general manager of sales & marketing center at China Resources Snow Breweries said.

"Our previous strategy was to earn the highest sales in the Chinese market, so we would produce a beer that was suitable for most drinkers in China. But now, because young people have new likes, we develop products according to their taste," said Bi.

China Resources Snow Breweries (CRSB), one of the nation's biggest beer companies, now has beers specifically for the middle and high-end market. Brave the World Super X, Craftsmanship, and Marrs Green are some of their newest brands. At eight to 15 yuan per bottle, many people wonder, has the ...More info on site

Brewery news Kenya: Kenya lags behind other sub-Saharan peers in alcohol consumption
Kenyans consume the least amounts of both recorded and unrecorded alcohol in sub-Saharan Africa, a new report said, coinciding with an intense government-led campaign against alcohol abuse.

The report dubbed ‘Effect of Kenya’s Alcohol Regulation Policies’ shows that Kenyans consume 3.4 litres of alcohol per capita which is thrice less than the amounts Ugandans and Tanzanians take.

Consumption of formal (recorded) alcohol that includes beer, spirits and wines accounts for 56 per cent of the drinking population while informal sources (unrecorded alcohol) such as chang’aa and a host of other illicit drinks account for 44 per cent.

In neighbouring Uganda, alcohol consumption is 9.5 litres per capita while in Tanzania it is 9.4 litres per capita. In Rwanda, the consumption is nine litres per capita.

The low consumption of alcohol in Kenya comes in the wake of government orders to crackdown on outlets in efforts to take excessive consumption among the youth and other productive members of the society. At least 12 out of every 100 Kenyans drink alcohol.

“It is very sad to note that we have more bars and clubs in the country than both primary and secondary schools combined.

“This is unacceptable and must be checked,” Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i said last ...More info on site

Brewery news Canada: Canadian craft brewers form association
A new organization representing more than 700 craft breweries from across Canada was announced on May 3 at the Canadian Brewing Awards & Conference in Toronto, the Canadian Beer News reported.

Encompassing the membership of all ten provincial craft brewing associations, as well as other independent breweries and industry partners, the Canadian Craft Brewers Association – Association des Microbrasseries Canadiennes will be focused on three strategic goals:

Educating federal government on the growing positive economic impact created by the craft beer sector, which includes a substantial business ecosystem of primarily small and local companies;

Working with the ten provincial craft beer Associations, providing services to support the rapid growth of member companies in the sector, many of which are new;

Promoting the hundreds of breweries and thousands of unique Canadian craft beer offerings to beer-drinking consumers nationally and internationally.

The Board of Directors for the new Association features 15 members, including one to represent each of the ten provincial associations, and one to represent craft brewery members in each of five geographic regions in Canada.

Brewery news Ethiopia: United Beverages launches new Anbessa beer
There is a new beer on the horizon in Ethiopia. United Beverages has launched a new brand –Anbessa beer, the New Business Ethiopia reported on May 4.

This is a partnership between the Mauritius-based United Africa Beverages Company and Kangaroo Industrial Group. The partnership was speculated to start a new beer since 2016, when United made its entry to Ethiopia, building a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Modjo.

With an estimated investment outlay of USD 88 million, this is a noted investment and give confidence to the fast growing beer market in Ethiopia.

According to United Beverages, the new plan has the capacity to brew 1.6 million hectolitres and the packaging capacity of 800,000 hectolitres.

Unique to the Ethiopian market, the company started a teaser campaign and there was much discussion about it on social media. The company claims to use half locally sourced raw and packed materials for the production of Anbessa and plans to increase that to 100 percent in the “near future.” It employs over 240 people at its new plant.

Currently, Ethiopia’s total beer consumption stands at 12 million hectolitres per year with per capital consumption estimated to be around nine litres.
