Molson Coors Canada has opened its new brewery in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia at Chilliwack, the Drinks Insight Network reported on September 18.

The C$300 mln (US$226.2 mln) brewery will have 100 staff members, joining the Molson Coors network of 29 breweries worldwide.

Molson Coors Canada president and CEO Frederic Landtmeters said: “This new modern brewery nestled at the foot of the Cascade mountain range of British Columbia in Chilliwack will proudly brew the Molson and Coors trademarks along with many other brands within our portfolio.

“This brewery will primarily serve our western Canadian markets positioned strategically in British Columbia to offer an efficient and effective modern brewery to compete in this important market.”

Brewery news Australia: Australians increase consumption of non-alcoholic, low and mid-strength beers
Australian’s taste in beer is changing with non-alcoholic, low and mid-strength beers now accounting for around a quarter of all Carlton & United Breweries’ sales, B&T reported on September 18.

Carlton Zero is playing a role in helping drive the trend towards moderation: since launching a year ago it has sold more than 3.2 million litres in Australia.

Carlton Zero dominates non-alcoholic beer sales in bottle shops, driving up sales in the category by 14 times.

No, low and mid-strength beer now make up almost 25 per cent of the volume of beer sales for CUB – up from just 10 per cent five years ago.

Carlton Zero’s first birthday coincides with the Global Be(er) Responsible initiative, which is a worldwide effort by brewers, including CUB, to promote responsible consumption of beer.

CUB’s Chris Maxwell said the tastes of Australian beer lovers is changing.

“We launched Carlton Zero because beer lovers told us they wanted more opportunities to enjoy beer responsibly,” he said. “The popularity of Zero shows it’s becoming normal to consume non- alcoholic beer on many different occasions.”

“Research shows the most common reason people drink non-alcoholic beer is because they’re the designated driver, and we’re seeing this predominately in people aged 18-34. We think ...More info on site

Barley news Canada: Rains slow down barley harvest in most regions
There were widespread rains across the Canadian prairies last week, ranging from a trace to 50 mm, which slowed down the harvest for the majority of the regions, CMBTC reported on September 19. This week, the forecast is for generally dry and warmer temperatures but some regions will be slowed down due to light showers that will likely stop or slow down harvest progress. Most of Western Canada is drying out and farmers are taking every advantage of non-rain weather to harvest their crop. The cool, wet weather has taken its toll on the quality, causing significant degradation of the barley. Sprout/chitted seed has been reported to as high as 60% on the barley that has been harvested to-date. Alberta It was another wet week in parts of the province but there is little rain in the forecast and many regions are drying out. However the barley is still not dry in the fields and farmers continue to harvest tough barley and dry it on farm. The maltsters may have to entertain the possibility of accepting barley with up to 15.5% moisture. Not all farmers have access to dryers and barley is being harvested in the mid to upper ...More info on site

Barley news USA & Mexico: Mexico's brewing expansion strengthens demand for US barley
Mexico is now the world’s largest beer exporter in terms of both value and volume—and that growth is good news for U.S. barley farmers and malt producers who supply their main ingredient, the High Plains Journal reported on September 18..

To capture this demand growth, the U.S. Grains Council is strengthening existing supply-chain relationships and introducing new buying strategies through focused trade servicing activities, including a trade team mission to Idaho recently.

Mexican breweries rely on U.S. barley producers to be their main suppliers for imported barley. Mexico imported 269,000 metric tonnes (12.4 million bushels) of U.S. malted barley in the 2017-2018 marketing year, representing the single largest market, and one that continues to grow. Total Mexican beer sales are now worth more than $20 billion annually, with value rising sharply year-over-year.

All of the major breweries are making substantial investments in new brewing, malting and bottle manufacturing plants. This growth and investment represents additional demand for malted barley as well as barley for malt.

“Although Mexico is expanding local barley production, the malting industry cannot keep up with the demand from brewing plants,” said Javier Chavez, USGC marketing specialist in Mexico, who accompanied the team to Idaho. “With several new plants coming ...More info on site

Barley news Russia: Barley exports drop by 15.6% in July-August 2018/19
According to preliminary data, Russia exported 1.042 mln tonnes of barley in July-August 2019/20, or 15.6% less than in July-August 2018/19, Indiainfoline reported on September 19.

Almost 55% of Russia’s total barley exports were absorbed by Saudi Arabia - the pace of deliveries to this market is comparable with last year.

Barley news India: Indian maltsters buy 55,000 tonnes of Argentinean barley for delivery by November
Indian malt companies – Barmalt Malting India Pvt Ltd and United Breweries Ltd – have signed a contract to import around 55,000 tonnes of barley from Argentina at around $200 per tonne cost and freight, Cogencis reported on September 19 citing an official from one of the companies.

The imports are scheduled to reach Adani Port in Gujarat in the first week of November. However, the quantity being imported by these companies separately is unavailable, the official said.

In August, as per industry estimates, 65,000-75,000 tonnes of barley were imported by malt makers.

With the supply crunch in the domestic market, and the new crop arrivals scheduled to commence only from March, malt companies turned to importing the coarse grain to meet their requirements, owner of a Jaipur-based malt company said.

In addition, barley imports come out cheaper than buying the coarse grain from domestic markets, traders said.

In the benchmark market of Jaipur, the coarse grain was sold at 1,880 rupees per 100 kg on September 19.

Supplies in the market have almost dried up as stocks with farmers have ended, said Mahesh Gupta, owner of the Jaipur-based Swastik Broker.

According to the agriculture ministry's fourth advance estimate, India's barley output in 2018-19 is ...More info on site

Barley news South Africa: South African Breweries launch new agricultural research and development facility in Caledon
South African Breweries (SAB) on September 19 launched an R80 million agricultural research and development facility in Caledon in the Western Cape, which will pilot new farming techniques, technology, and crop varieties to accelerate agricultural development in the country, IOL reported.

The facility, which will have a critical focus on black emerging farmers was officially launched in conjunction with the national department of agriculture and is one of the largest privately-funded research and development facilities in South Africa.

All research output will be made freely available on a dedicated website, along with weather data, to ensure the benefits are spread as widely as possible to all farmers. Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Mcebisi Skwatsha, noted that Agriculture and Agro-processing industries play an important role in making a contribution towards economic growth, poverty alleviation and job creation. SAB’s efforts are an important part of this.

The company said with micro-breweries, a malting plant and laboratory on-site to test and enhance new varieties of barley for making beer, the centre will open new opportunities for farmers to improve yield and profitability, and for brewers to enhance flavour in their beverages.

The space is designed for collaboration in order to co-create innovative solutions with partners, including ...More info on site
