Brewery news Hong Kong: Shares in AB InBev’s Asia Pacific unit up 4% on market debut
Shares in AB InBev’s Asia-Pacific unit, which last week raised about $5 billion after relaunching its initial public offering (IPO), gained as much as 4% on their market debut in Hong Kong on Monday, September 30, Reuters reported.

Anheuser-Busch InBev NV (AB InBev), the world’s largest brewer, relaunched the unit IPO this month after cancelling a plan for a bigger float in July citing “several factors, including the prevailing market conditions”.

The Asia unit, Budweiser Brewing Company APAC Ltd, raised about $5 billion in the world’s second-biggest IPO this year, after pricing the Hong Kong float at the bottom of a marketed range.

Budweiser APAC shares rose to as much as HK$28.10 at open on Monday, compared to its IPO price of HK$27 per share. The stock was trading at HK$28, up 3.79%, at 1001 local time (0201 GMT), while the market index <.HSI> was down 0.2%.

Proceeds from the IPO of Budweiser APAC, whose portfolio of more than 50 beer brands includes Stella Artois and Corona, will help AB InBev reduce debt of over $100 billion accumulated following the purchase of rival SABMiller in late 2016.

The brewer also has another goal – to create an Asian champion to spur consolidation. Analysts see the ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Craft brewers generated roughly 0.4% of GDP in 2018
Small and independent U.S craft brewers generated $79.1 billion in economic impact in 2018, which represented roughly 0.4 percent of the gross domestic product, according to industry trade group the Brewers Association’s (BA) 2018 Economic Impact Report, Brewbound reported.

The Boulder, Colorado-headquartered not-for-profit added that the $79.1 billion amounted to a 4% increase over 2017’s $76.1 billion in output. A similar report shared by the BA in 2017 concluded that the craft brewing industry generated $67.8 billion in economic impact in 2016. Another, in 2012, reported $33.9 billion in economic output.

The 2018 economic impact analysis pulled data from the BA’s annual Beer Industry Production Survey, the bi-annual Brewery Operations Benchmarking Survey and other government and market data. Craft brewers’ economic impact was derived from the total impact of craft beer through the three-tier distribution system, as well as sales of non-beer items such as food and merchandise at brewpubs and taprooms.

The release of the new analysis comes about a week before the BA’s largest consumer-facing event of the year, the annual Great American Beer Festival in Denver.

According to the BA, the craft brewing industry was responsible for creating more than 559,545 total jobs last year, with 150,055 jobs directly at breweries. ...More info on site

Brewery news Kenya: Kenya Breweries launches Hop House 13 lager under Guinness brand
Kenya Breweries Limited (KBL) has launched a new Guinness variant, Hop House 13 lager, in the Kenyan market. The alcoholic beverage was launched in Kenya on 27th September and it is currently available in Nairobi and it will roll out across the country later in the year, HapaKenya reported.

Hop House 13 is lager under the Guinness brand and is available across Europe, with Kenya being the first market in Africa to launch it.

Speaking at the launch, Kenya Breweries Limited (KBL) Marketing Manager – Guinness, Ms. Nduku Wamakau said, “Hop House 13 will launch with an experiential event that will tap into all senses of our consumers allowing them to experience the excitement about this new lager from Guinness. It has been a great success across Europe where it is currently available, and we are very excited to be the first African country to showcase this great premium, international quality lager to our beer drinkers.”

Brewery news Denmark: Carlsberg to half amount of water needed for its Fredericia brewery
Beer giant Carlsberg is poised to half the amount of water needed to run its brewery in Fredericia, Denmark, with the unveiling of plans for a ground-breaking water recycling plant at the site last week, BusinessGreen reported on September 30.

The Frederica brewery is set to be home to Carlsberg's first water recycling system, which will reduce average water consumption at the site from 2.9 hectolitres (hl) of water per hl of beer to 1.4 hl of water per hl of beer.

Carlsberg says the system will make it the first brewery to "virtually eliminate water waste", future-proofing the site as part of the firm's Together Towards ZERO sustainability strategy.

The upgrade is also expected to cut energy consumption by 10 per cent by reusing hot water and generating biogas.

The company said it expects the water recycling plant to be in test production by the end of 2020, and fully operational by early 2021.

"This is a big investment for us, but also a necessary next step on our journey towards ZERO water waste across all our breweries," said Philip Hodges, EVP of integrated supply chains at Carlsberg Group. "By recycling 90 per cent of all process water, the Fredericia brewery will halve its ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Supermarkets close to Scotland report increased alcohol sales after minimum unit pricing introduction
Supermarkets close to Carlisle and Berwick reported a surge in alcohol sales after minimum unit pricing was introduced in Scotland, The Guardian reported on October 2.

A study for NHS Scotland found that alcohol sales jumped by 40% in one English supermarket close to the border and 25% in another, in the three months after cheap alcohol sales were banned in Scotland.

Minimum unit pricing (MUP) came into force in Scotland on 1 May 2018, in an attempt to cut Scotland’s higher-than average alcohol consumption and high death rates from alcohol-related diseases.

It bars retailers from selling alcoholic drinks, including beers, wines, spirits and ciders, at less than 50p per unit of alcohol. The Welsh government is also introducing minimum pricing and its cross-border effects will be closely studied by ministers in Cardiff.

The NHS analysis of the impact of MUP on retailers found this meant sales of cut-price drinks such as ciders or own brand vodka fell in Scotland, while overall consumption of alcohol fell slightly.

A study in the British Medical Journal last week found that MUP led to alcohol consumption falling by 1.2 units per person per week, equivalent to a measure of spirits or half a pint of beer. The impacts ...More info on site

Brewery news Russia: Introduction of ‘homebrew index’ could help monitor economic performance - economists
A group of economists in Russia have suggested that the answer to forecasting future economic crises could lie in the country's cherished samogon, or illegal homebrew, BBC reported on September 30.

A team led by Alexei Zubets, a researcher at Moscow's Financial University, carried out a nationwide poll about drinking habits earlier this year, and discovered that people feeling the financial pinch tend to switch to homemade spirits or bootleg booze.

This shows that the introduction of a "samogon index" could provide the government with another way of monitoring economic performance, he told the official newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta, adding that the latest findings suggest things are already looking up.

"Our research shows that production of home-made alcohol and its trade volume in Russia have not increased in the last year. And there are a number of signs they are in decline. We'll most likely see real incomes grow in the coming months," Mr Zubets said.

The proposal has made waves among analysts of the sector. Some, like Vadim Drobiz of the Centre for Research of Federal and Regional Alcohol Markets, agree that alcohol could be used as a "barometer of economic prosperity".

But he suggests that an index based on the quantity of legal spirits ...More info on site

Hops news New Zealand & USA: New Zealand hops in high demand among US brewers
New Zealand hops are in demand in the United States as craft beer brewers compete to achieve a point of difference, Stuff.co.nz reported on October 1.

The Tasman District produces distinct flavours that cannot be replicated, according to Jason Judkins, chief executive of Nelson's Hop Revolution, and US brewers are keen to use New Zealand hops to stand out among competitors.

Judkins visited 50 breweries on a recent trip the US.

He says Hop Revolution will be working with about 30 of those breweries to supply next year's harvest from its 116 hectare Tapawera hop garden.

Hop Revolution is developing the garden with My Farm Investments and is in the process of buying a second property, Wairua Hop Garden, in Motueka.

Judkins says it was clear from his visit that Tapawera's hop supply could be sold many times over.

Hop Revolution wants a direct relationship with US brewers, who Judkins says are interested in a connection to the farm.

Craft beers account for 13 per cent of beer sales in the US and there are more than 7000 craft breweries in the country.

Hop Revolution is working on an allocation and partnership model and is contracted to supply 60 to 70 per cent of next year's harvest to ...More info on site
