BreweryBrewery News Brewery

Brewery news USA: Constellation Brands beer business shows signs of slowdown
Corona-maker Constellation Brands Inc cut its 2019 profit outlook on January 9, citing weakness in wine and spirits sales and costs related to its investment in a Canadian pot producer, sending its shares down to a near two-year low, Reuters reported.

The brewer became one of the early entrants to the growing cannabis industry in 2017 when it took a stake in Canada’s largest marijuana producer Canopy Growth that now amounts to over $4 billion.

The lowered forecast reflects an about 25 cent per share pre-tax impact to full-year profit due to higher interest expenses the company expects to pay to finance the marijuana investment that was mainly backed by debt.

Weak results from Canopy Growth in November weighed on Constellation, resulting in a $164 million decrease in the fair value of its investment in the third quarter.

At the same time, Constellation has been struggling to boost sales in its wine and spirits business, anticipating a low-single digits fall in sales in fiscal 2019.

Chief Operating Officer Bill Newlands, who will take over as chief executive officer in March, blamed the low end of its wine portfolio for weakness in the business and said the company would review its portfolio and focus more on ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Major Japanese brewers aiming to win customers by promoting beerlike beverages
Four major Japanese brewers are aiming to win customers this year by promoting “third-segment” beerlike beverages, which have little or no malt content and therefore are priced lower than regular beer, The Japan News reported on January 11.

The companies are redoubling efforts to boost sales, as Japan’s consumption tax rate is set to be raised to 10 percent from 8 percent in October and the country’s beer and quasi-beer market continues shrinking partly reflecting falling demand from young consumers.

Of the four players, Sapporo Breweries Ltd. estimates sales of its beer, “happoshu” law-malt quasi-beer and third-segment beverages this year at 44.5 million cases, down 0.3 percent from 2018.

The other three project growth, with sales seen up 2.2 percent at 150.5 million cases at Asahi Breweries Ltd., 2.0 percent at 137.8 million cases at Kirin Brewery Co. and 3.0 percent at 64.6 million cases at Suntory Beer Ltd.

Each case contains the equivalent of 20 633-milliliter bottles.

Suntory does not have happoshu on its product lineup.

Kirin will revamp Hon Kirin, a blockbuster third-segment product released in March 2018, later this month.

The move comes as part of the firm’s efforts to keep the popularity of existing products through the renewals of their flavors and package ...More info on site

Brewery news Zimbabwe: AB InBev to invest $120 million Zimbabwe dividends in central bank bonds
Global brewing giant Anheuser-Busch InBev will invest more than $120 million of its dividends and fees that are trapped in Zimbabwe in the central bank’s savings bonds, its local associate said on January 10.

AB InBev owns a 40 percent stake in Zimbabwe’s largest brewer and soft drinks maker Delta Corporation, which has been struggling to repatriate dividends and import raw materials due to a severe shortage of dollars in the economy.

Delta said last week it had abandoned a plan to accept only hard currency payments to cope with the crippling shortage of U.S. dollars, after the government intervened.

“AB InBev has agreed to place more than $120 million due to them in relation to unremitted dividends and fees into RBZ (Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe) savings bonds in order to reduce the pressure on the demand of foreign currency,” Delta said.

The bonds, which were introduced in September 2017, have a coupon of 7 percent and a tenure of between 12 and 60 months.

Barley news USA: American Malting Barley Association publishes list of recommended malting barley varieties for 2019
Each year, the American Malting Barley Association (AMBA) releases its list of recommended malting barley varieties to U.S. growers.

AMBA, a nonprofit trade association of 76 brewing, distilling and malting companies, is quick to note the list below is meant to inform U.S. producers which malting barley varieties the industry intends to use in the upcoming year, but the info is also good for brewers to see what’s trending. From the release:

Some varieties will be used in large quantities and others are only utilized is niche markets, so producers are encouraged to contact their local elevator, grain handler or processor to gauge market demand for any variety grown in their region prior to seeding.

There are several changes from the 2018 list. The two-row varieties Harrington and Propino are being dropped from the list and four two-row varieties are being added. These additions include ABI Growler, Bill Coors 100, Moravian 165 and Thunder. ABI Growler is a two-rowed, midseason, spring barley developed by Busch Agricultural Resources, Ft. Collins, Colo. Bill Coors 100 and Moravian 165 are two-rowed, spring varieties bred by Molson Coors in Burley, Idoha. Bill Coors 100 was released in 2016 in celebration of Bill Coors 100th birthday.
