BreweryBrewery News Brewery

Brewery news USA: Alcohol consumption drops 0.8% last year
Americans are drinking less alcohol, Bloomberg reported on January 17.

Total cases of beer, wine and spirits consumed in the U.S. dropped 0.8 percent to nearly 3.35 billion in 2018, the third consecutive year of declining volumes, according to a report from IWSR, which studies the beverage market.

The main culprit is the beer slump, with consumption down 1.5 percent last year as more drinkers gravitated to spirits and wine. It was the 24th straight year that wine gained volume in the U.S. according to IWSR, with prosecco a standout. Mezcal, meanwhile, drove growth in spirits.

“It’s clear that Americans are drinking less overall, which is likely a result of the continued trend toward health and wellness,” Brandy Rand, IWSR’s U.S. president and global chief marketing officer, said in a statement. “We’ve also seen for some time now that consumers aren’t necessarily loyal to just one category.”

Brewery news Russia: Mail service trying to keep far north post offices open by selling beer
Russia's beleaguered mail service plans to keep local post offices open by letting them sell beer, BBC reported on January 16.

Among the first to notice the new goods on sale was a caller to a post office in Murmansk Region, in the far north of the country.

"It looked like Russian Post couldn't sink any lower, but it turns out they could," he complained, taking to the VKontakte social media platform with photos of beer stacked up for sale at the counter.

This left only one cashier position free, which was "already witnessing an involved discussion about bed linen. So now we can expect the local winos to hold things up even more," he lamented about the bottles, priced at up to 135 roubles ($2; £1.60) a piece.

Comments on the VKontakte page also mix exasperation with humour, while some comfort themselves with the thought that at least they "won't get bored in the queue anymore".

Others think it is only a matter of time before the post office starts selling kebabs too. "What about condoms, cigarettes, and a couple of tables in the corner as well?" another user suggests.

The story quickly made its way to the national media, which found out that the ...More info on site

Barley news UK: Growing whiskey demand to help Scottish malting barley growers
Scottish cereals growers have been told to count their blessings because they can look forward to the prospect of growing demand for their produce regardless of the final Brexit outcome, The Courier reported on January 12.

Spring barley producers attending an AHDB/SAC agronomy conference in Scone heard SAC senior rural business consultant Julian Bell predict that the opening of 10 new distilleries in 2019 and another 40 by 2021 would see demand for Scottish malting barley increase by 33,000 tonnes by 2023.

Mr Bell said this growth, coupled with an increase in malting capacity at Arbroath, meant the next peak in whisky demand could be better met by Scottish growers.

He also pointed out that while the booming whisky industry is export-focused it is not subject to trade barriers.

“We’ve had strong whisky requirement before but we’ve not been able to capitalise on it because of a limited malting capacity,” he said.

“And no one is going to put tariff barriers between farmers in Perthshire and maltings in Angus.

“They need one another and the end market is growing.”

However, Mr Bell suggested that sourcing the suitable barley could pose a problem because although yields are improving in trials sites they are not being replicated in commercial ...More info on site
