0 USA: Pennsylvania’s new law allows beer distributors to open on Sundays

The Pennsylvania’ distributors of beer are permitted to open on Sundays, so that drinkers can go to their local distributor. The new law does not require distributors to be open on Sunday; however, according to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, 21 of the 41 in Luzerne County will be open for business, Citizenvoice announced on August 29.

Dave Shipula, Beer Super owner and president of the Malt Beverage Distributors Association of Pennsylvania, thinks the move is long overdue. After the state allowed some of its liquor stores to open on Sunday, he felt it was only a matter of time before the distributors got their chance.

The distributors were the last institution regulated by the PLCB not permitted to operate on Sundays, Shipula said. He felt the restriction was putting the distributors at an unfair disadvantage.

Shipula and the state Malt Beverage Distributors Association had been fighting for the right to operate on Sundays for years, but did not get anywhere until recently.

"I think the turning point seemed to be when the liquor stores started a pilot program to be open on Sundays," he said.

Distributors are taking advantage. Employees anticipate they will be busy, especially on the eve of football season.

Barley News

0 Canada: Canadian Wheat Board introduce Malting barley protein payments

The CWB announced in August that it will pay protein premiums to farmers who deliver two-row malting barley to participating elevators and maltsters (see attached) in the 2005-06 crop year.

"Designated barley protein payments will more clearly communicate market signals to farmers," said Earl Geddes, CWB vice president of Farmer Relations and Operations. "Farmers who produce more precisely the quality that maltsters want will now reap the benefits of those efforts."

The premiums will range from $5.40 for protein levels of 10.9 per cent and lower to $0.60 for barley with 12.5 per cent protein, reflecting the relative value of these protein levels to brewers and maltsters (see attached schedule). Protein levels are one indicator of malting characteristics. Levels that are too high or low can affect malting and brewing quality.

"This program will reward farmers who manage their crops to produce the protein levels valued by the malting and brewing industries," Geddes said.

Having access to a larger pool of malting barley in the premium protein range will aid the CWB in expanding malting barley sales opportunities for western Canadian barley growers.

The program follows up on CWB protein payments for wheat that have been available for several years. It will result in a ...
