Brewery news The Philippines & Vietnam: San Miguel Corp. “evaluating and may bid” for Vietnam’s Saigon Beer Alcohol Beverage Corp.
San Miguel Corp. plans to invest $34 billion in an oil refinery, an integrated steel complex and an ocean-tide power plant as the Philippines’ largest company by sales expands amid forecasts for robust economic growth in the country, according to its president, Bloomberg reported.

The company, which sells nine of every 10 beers in the Philippines, is also “evaluating and may bid” for Saigon Beer Alcohol Beverage Corp., President Ramon Ang told reporters on March 31. Vietnam may provide an anchor to increase its brewery business as consumption in the country is growing at an annual rate of at least 10 percent, five times that in the Philippines, he said.

“The businesses we ventured into have matured, such that the company is in a very stable position,” Ang said, citing compounded annual 20 percent growth in recurring profit and a near fourfold increase in assets since 2008 following San Miguel’s diversification from food and drinks into non-allied industries such as toll roads and resources. Excluding one-off items, profit will rise at least 20 percent to about 60 billion pesos ($1.2 billion) this year, he said.

Brewery news India: AB InBev CEO in India to review Indian operations
Anheuser-Busch InBev Chief Executive Carlos Brito is in India to review Indian operations barely four days after the ban on highway liquor shops in the country. This is the first India visit for Brito after the world’s largest brewer acquired rival SABMiller Plc six months ago, the Economic Times reported on April 5.

“Carlos Brito regularly visits our markets and is currently in Bengaluru as part of a standard market visit,” confirmed the company without divulging specific agenda.

While the maker of Budweiser, Fosters and Hoegaarden is the second-largest beer company in India, it has been losing share to rivals including Carlsberg. “The business is slowing down in India and discussing issues in distribution and workforce due to integration with SABMiller is on the agenda,” said an official who didn’t wish to be identified adding that Brito has no plans to meet government representatives or trade.

The India headquarter has been recently shifted from Gurgaon to Bengaluru, reporting into the Zone President for Asia Pacific South, based out of Melbourne, Australia.

“The company has been losing share since the past few years — from about 24% in 2014 to 19% now,” said the official. “The recent ...More info on site

Brewery news Kenya: East African Breweries expects sluggish sales growth due to higher taxation
East African Breweries Limited (EABL) leading brands Tusker and Guinness are projected to register sluggish growth in the medium term in Kenya due to higher taxation, the brewer’s parent company Diageo has said.

John O’Keeffe, Diageo Africa’s president, says a 43 per cent increase in excise duty on beer beginning December 2015 has adversely impacted performance of the two leading brands and that it will take time for them to bounce back.

UK-based global brewer Diageo owns 50.02 per cent of EABL. Excise tax on beer increased to Sh100 per litre from the previous Sh70 per litre, forcing the brewer to adjust its prices upwards with a depressing effect on demand for some of its products.

“While bottled beer and our overall performance in Kenya will improve in the second half, the excise duty increase has put bottled beer out of the reach of many consumers,” Mr O’Keeffe told investors during a conference call.

“It will likely take longer to get Guinness and Tusker back to consistent growth.”

Mr O’Keeffe said the brewer is in open discussions with government stakeholders on various issues including “seeking a sustainable and predictable tax environment” in order to reel in “excessive duty rises on beer”.

He added that EABL is ...More info on site

Brewery news Mexico & USA: Mexican farmers asking US President to stop Constellation Brands building brewery in Mexicali
Mexican farmers are asking President Trump for help stopping a local brewery's new plant, News 10NBC reported on March 31.

Victor-based Constellation Brands is planning a $1.4 billion plant in Mexicali, Mexico. But, according to the Wall Street Journal, local farmers are afraid the plant would use too much water in an area with an already naturally low water table.

Dry conditions there have already forced formers to stop using thousands of acres of farmland.

"We haven't been able to do a second planting in years, but we're inviting in a company that's going to consume a ton of water," farmer Pablo Rangel tells the journal. "It doesn't make sense."

The farmers have protested the company, hoping President Trump will bring it back to the states.

Hops news Brazil: Brasil Kirin trying to grow hops where no one has grown them before
It was more than a decade ago that grower Rodrigo Veraldi first planted a few hop seeds on his farm, high in Brazil’s Mantiqueira Mountains, northeast of the city of Săo Paulo. To Veraldi, who grows specialty fruits and berries, the experiment was mainly a side project. According to conventional wisdom, hop vines need cold winters and long summer days found in places like Germany and the Yakima Valley; Veraldi just wanted to see if he could get hops to grow somewhere beyond their climatic comfort zone, DRAFT Magazine reported on April 3.

While some of Veraldi’s plants showed promise in his greenhouses, it was a different story outside, where they couldn’t withstand the heavy summer rains that soak the lush mountain slopes. Eventually, he pulled the plug, tossed the remains of his hop experiment onto the scrap pile and moved on to other things.

Two years later, while planting corn beside that old scrap pile, Veraldi was shocked to find that an enormous hop vine, covered in fragrant cones, had quietly burst forth and grown up a nearby tree. Stunned, he knelt beside the vigorous plant and apologized for having given up on the idea. Veraldi isn’t sure which of his ...More info on site
