Brewery news Canada: Beer volumes down by 3% through November 2019
Smoke more, drink less.

That appeared to be the trend among Canadians in the first full year of legal cannabis, when beer volumes fell by 3 per cent through November, according to data from Beer Canada, the Financial Post reported on January 7.

“This is far worse than the trends seen between 2014-2018, where beer industry volumes fell an average 0.3 per cent,” and appears to be related to Canada’s legalization of pot in late 2018, said Cowen analyst Vivien Azer.

Domestic beer volumes slid 3.9 per cent through November, while imported beer volumes grew 1.4 per cent. Cannabis consumers appear to prefer mainstream beer “as they pursue better ‘buzz for your buck,”‘ Azer said in a note published on January 7.

There’s some debate about how much impact marijuana legalization has on alcohol consumption, although surveys of pot users indicate that they tend to drink less when they’re high. Declining sales have led to several alcohol-cannabis partnerships, including Constellation Brands Inc.’s investment in Canopy Growth Corp., Anheuser-Busch InBev NV’s joint venture with Tilray Inc. and Molson Coors Brewing Co.’s partnership with Hexo Corp.

To be sure, the Canadian cannabis market is still tiny. Annual sales based on the most recent monthly data would be ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Constellation Brands profit and sales top analysts’ estimates
Constellation Brands Inc. rose the most in six months after posting profit and sales last quarter that topped analysts’ estimates and raising its full year earnings forecast, Bloomberg reported on January 8.

Comparable earnings of $2.14 a share in the third quarter was well above the $1.84 average of estimates, amid growth from its beer brands Modelo Especial and Corona. Comparable profit for the full year will be $9.45 to $9.55 a share, up from a previous forecast for as much as $9.20.

Constellation has been leaning heavily on its beer business, where it’s aggressively advertising the Modelo Mexican import brand to boost sales. The brewer also is creating new items under the Corona brand in the popular hard seltzer category, with a 90-calorie drink planned to launch this year.

Executives said on January 8 that they are actively looking to divest more wine and spirits brands, which have lagged behind the growth at Modelo and Corona. The company has already sold parts of the unit to E. & J. Gallo Winery and said on a conference call that Gallo will buy its New Zealand wine label Nobilo, with the deal closing next fiscal year.

Constellation has also been working on reshaping its portfolio ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Molson Coors to cease production at Irwindale, California facility, gives option to Pabst Brewing to purchase it
Molson Coors Beverage Company announced plans to cease production at its facility in Irwindale, California, by September 2020, Brewbound reported on January 6.

The second largest U.S. beer manufacturer also announced an agreement with Pabst Brewing Co., giving the Los Angeles-headquartered beer company the option to purchase the Irwindale facility for $150 million.

“This move will allow us to optimize our brewery footprint while streamlining our operations for greater efficiency across the network,” Molson Coors chief integrated supply chain officer Brian Erhardt said in a press release. “While it was a very difficult decision, we have extra capacity in our system and Irwindale’s production can be absorbed by other breweries in our network.”

The 40-year-old Irwindale facility employs about 470 workers and produced 4.8 million barrels of product last year — including Miller Lite, Coors Light, Miller High Life, Miller Genuine Draft, Steel Reserve, and Miller 64, among others — which was shipped to 261 independently owned wholesalers.

Molson Coors will begin moving production from Irwindale to its facilities in Golden, Colorado, and Fort Worth, Texas, over the next nine months.

As for Molson Coors’ arrangement with Pabst, the maker of Pabst Blue Ribbon will have 120 days after receiving notice from Molson Coors of ...More info on site

Brewery news India: United Breweries forced to cut down on production in Andhra Pradesh
The Andhra Pradesh Government’s new liquor policy has dealt a blow to United Breweries Holdings Limited, which has drastically cut down on production at its unit located at Bantupalli village in Srikakulam district ever since the new regulations came into force, The Hindu reported on January 5.

Sources said that the Excise Department of the State Government, which has taken over running of liquor shops across the State, has stopped purchase and sale of several popular brands of liquor sold by United Breweries, including beer. The company, which earlier used to produce around 11 lakh bottles per month, is now producing only one lakh bottles. The company is unable to export beverages from Srikakulam district as it has its own units both in neighbouring Telangana and Odisha.

It is learnt that the company has laid off 600 employees due to the huge drop in production at the Bantupalli unit.

CITU and other trade unions staged protests demanding the continuation of the workers’ services. “The State Government should do justice to all the employees and workers as they have lost their livelihood due to the new liquor policy. The company should also take initiatives to overcome its hurdles as thousands of people are directly ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: UK brewer Marston's charged too much for beer – report
Marston’s Plc charged too much for beer and rent, and resisted calls to compensate tenants, the Times reported, citing a finding from a government adjudicator.

The U.K.’s pubs code body found that the company had broken industry rules and was “significantly deficient” in its treatment of a tenant, according to the newspaper. Marston’s charges for a cask of beer rather than the number of pints that can be sold from it, meaning pubs often lose out on a few pints of beer at the bottom of a barrel. Rents for tenants are calculated from sales forecasts assuming a full barrel is sold.

Marston’s told the Times that the findings will have “no consequence across the industry.” Dave Mountford of the Pubs Advisory Service told the newspaper that the ruling could lead to compensation for the “thousands of pounds of rent” that some tenants have been wrongfully charged.
