0 Japan: Beer shipments jump by 5.2% in May 2007

Domestic shipments of beer and beerlike beverages rose in May for the first time in four months thanks to a rise in "third-category" beer, according to industry data, Kyodo News reported June 13. Overall shipments rose 5.2% compared with a year ago to 40.94 million cases, according to beer producers and the Brewers Association of Japan.

Shipments of third-category beer, mostly nonmalt sparking drinks that taste similar to beer, soared 70.5% compared with the previous year, when sales slumped after the government imposed a higher tax levy on them. In contrast, shipments fell 4.2% for real beer and 4.7% for the low-malt quasibeer known as "happoshu."

0 Bulgaria: Beer sales increased by 18.4 per cent for first five months of 2007

Beer sales in Bulgaria reached 1.959 million hectolitres from January to May 2007 according to Union of Brewers in Bulgaria (UBB) statistics, Sofia Echo reported June 15.

These levels represent an 18.4 per cent increase in comparison to data for the same period of 2006, when sales totaled 1.655 million hectolitres, investor.bg reported.

Beer consumption growth slowed down in the end of the period.

Bulgarian brewers sold 592 934 hectolitres in May 2007, 10.71 per cent less than in May 2006.

UBB statistics are made on the sales of brands Zagorka, Kamenitsa, Carlsberg Bulgaria, Bolyarka, Lomsko Pivo and Agrima.

Zagorka registered highest sales figures fro the five-month period totaling 621 590 hectolitres. The company sold 171 572 hectolitres in May, which placed it second for the month after Kamenitsa.

Kamenitsa ranks first in beer sales for May. It sold 188 068 hectolitres beer in May and 558 518 hectolitres for the entire period.

0 Belgium: Belgium exports more beer than home consumption

Belgian beer exports have been on the rise for a number of years now, but since last year Belgium is exporting more than is consumed in the country itself, Flanders News reported June 14.

In 2006 Belgian beer exports rose by 15%, while the amount of beer consumed in Belgium itself fell to under 90 litres per Belgian for the first time ever. (Belga) 55% of Belgian beer production is now sent abroad.

The success of this Belgian product also means that more beer is being produced.

Last year Belgian beer production rose by 6%, while beer consumption at home fell once again.

The figures come from the Belgian Brewers' Federation and were published in Thursday's edition of the daily De Morgen.

Falling beer consumption at home is being linked to stricter drinking laws and the rising popularity of other beverages.

As a result of the trend more and more Belgian brewers are concentrating on foreign markets.

However, Philippe Moortgat, one of the country's major brewers, told De Morgen that falling sales at home are not good publicity for the sector abroad. (Belga) More exports mean greater investments
Many small Belgian brewers like Affligem and Lindemans already send between half and three-quarters of their beer production abroad.

0 UK: New winter and spring barley varieties added to approved malting

Winter barley variety, Cassata, and spring variety, Quench, have been granted provisional approvals for malting by the Institute of Brewing and Distilling (IBD), FWi reported June 14.

They were joined as new additions to the IBD approved list by Publican, which was provisionally approved for distilling use, and Tartan, which was provisionally approved for grain distilling.

Nickerson’s Cassata joins Pearl and Flagon as winter malting varieties. It produces malt of a similar quality to Pearl, but also has barley yellow mosaic virus resistance. Yield is 3% higher than Pearl, and similar to Flagon.

Syngenta Seeds’ Quench provides malt of good all-round quality for brewing use, according to the Maltsters’ Association of Great Britain. Its yield is 3% above NFC Tipple and 5% above Cocktail, which both have full approval for malting use. At 108% of the controls it has the highest treated yield on the current HGCA Recommended List.

Stable mate Publican, approved for distilling use, has the second highest yield on the RL at 107% of the control varieties.

“For maximum income, high yield combined with end user demand is a key factor,” Simon Phillips, European malting barley product development manager for Syngenta Seeds, said. “Publican and Quench already deliver top yields. Now, ...
