Brewery news Serbia: Beer sales in Serbia dropping every year by 1-2%
Beer sales in Serbia are dropping every year by one or two percent due to changes in the structure of the market, according to a leading drinks industry representative quoted by ESM on December 24.

In an interview for local daily Blic, the CEO of Carlsberg South-East Europe, Gabor Bekefi, explained that sales of cheap beer are rising as people want to save, while when going out Serbians are prepared to pay for quality premium beer, boosting consumption in this segment as well. However, on the downside, sales of mainstream beer are suffering.

Significantly, sales of Serbian beer are growing strong in countries where there is a large diaspora such as Australia, Germany and Austria. In addition, due to the low production costs, Carlsberg’s Serbian base is seen as a good point for exporting products to neighboring countries such as Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, and Bulgaria.

Commenting on the recently-announced tax hike for alcohol products, Bekefi pointed out that, when comparing the level of excise with purchasing power, Serbia has the largest or second largest taxes in Europe. This may cause beer to be somewhat more expensive, which ultimately could affect the consumption of beer next year.

In a related development, Andrej Beslac has been ...More info on site

Brewery news Spain & USA: Mahou San Miguel reportedly interested in minority stake in Anchor Brewers & Distillers
Spanish Mahou San Miguel is reportedly looking to up its presence in the U.S. craft beer market.

The Spanish brewer, which took a 30% interest in Michigan’s Founders Brewing last year, is now eyeing a potential minority stake in San Francisco-based Anchor Brewers & Distillers, Bloomberg reported, citing unnamed sources. The report added that Mahou San Miguel could invest up to $300 million in Anchor, which is known for its Anchor Steam beer brand. Anchor didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Led by former Skyy Spirits executives Keith Greggor and Tony Foglio, Anchor ranks as the 22nd-largest craft brewer in the U.S., according to the Brewers Association. Its distilling unit, which has a partnership with the U.K.’s Berry Bros. & Rudd, markets brands including The Glenrothes and BenRiach single malts, Nikka Japanese whisky and The King’s Ginger and Luxardo liqueurs, among others.

Brewery news Ukraine: Government doubles excise duty on beer
Despite protests from local industry players, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada has approved a bill raising excise rates on beer, hard spirits, wine, and sigarettes, zn.ua reported on December 24.

As from January 1, the tax on beer will be doubled – to UAH2.48 per litre, while rates for hard spirits will be raised by 50%.

Ukrainian brewers are already struggling. In January-November this year, the nation’s beer output declined by 20.2% versus the same period last year. In 2008-2015, Ukraine’s beer industry shrank by almost 40%, experts estimate.

Brewery news UK: Diageo produces record 12.5 mln cases of beer at Belfast facility
Drinks firm Diageo has produced 12.5 million cases of beer at its canning and bottling facility in east Belfast in what it said was a new record for the facility, The Irish News reported on December 30.

The plant on Marshall's Road employs 136 people and has undergone an improvement programme over the past 18 months.

It has been in operation for more than three decades.

Around 60 per cent of beer produced is sold in Ireland with the remainder exported to markets in Europe, North America and Asia.

Running at full capacity, the site can produce two million cans and bottles of beer in one day.

That follows a series of upgrades over the last decade including a can filler with widget inserter technology for cans of Draught Guinness, providing the capability to produce 60,000 cans per hour.

The facility's production manager Gary Simpson said: “All of our people at Belfast Packaging are proud to be setting production records and playing such an important role in supplying our home and international markets with Diageo’s great range of beers, including Guinness, Harp and Smithwick’s.

"The ‘Manufacturing Excellence' programme of continuous performance improvement will ensure that our site in east Belfast is ready and able to meet increased ...More info on site
