News Articles

Barley news Canada: Total supply of barley up 17% in 2019-20
For 2019-20, the total supply of barley in Canada increased by 17% from 2018-19 to 11.285 mln tonnes due to higher production despite historically low carry-in stocks, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada said in its May report.

Domestic use is expected to increase by 18% to 6.785 mln tonnes, largely due to higher feed use.

Total exports are expected to decrease to 2.8 mln tonnes on lower exports of feed barley to China despite higher exports of barley malt.

Carry-out stocks are forecast to rise sharply from last year (to 1.7 mln tonnes) largely due to the significant increase in supply.

Barley prices for the crop-year to-date in the Prairie provinces declined from a year ago but remain strong. For the entire crop year, the feed barley price at Lethbridge feedlots is expected to be 14% lower than last year, due to increased barley supplies in Canada and around the world.

Since 2014-15, China has been the largest export market for Canadian barley, taking more than half of Canadian barley grain exports. For 2019-20 to March, exports to China decreased by 8% particularly due to the declined exports in February and March.

The US is the second largest market for Canadian barley grain and barley ...More info on site

Brewery news Mexico: Beer production in Mexico City to resume on June 1
Beer production will resume on June 1 in Mexico City, after the capital’s government considered it as an essential activity alongside other activities such as mining, construction and the manufacture of transport equipment, The Yucatan Times reported.

“Each of these activities must have a protocol with occupational health measures, operating rules with flow charts, distribution of employees and customers and signage for each one,” said Claudia Sheinbaum, head of government of the Mexico City, in virtual press conference.

The official explained that Mexico City will be at a red light until June 15, but these essential activities will be able to resume operations from June 1.

Grupo Modelo AB InBev, the owner of the Victoria, Modelo and Corona beer brands, has a production plant in the Mexican capital and about 21% of the country’s craft beer plants are concentrated in the capital, according to a report issued by Acermex.

Grupo Modelo has 56.80% market share in Mexico and Heineken Mexico 40.80%, according to Euromonitor. Modelo’s production capacity is approximately 70 million hectolitres.

In late March, both brewers decided to stop their operations in the country because the government did not consider the beer industry as an essential economic activity to continue working during the Covid-19 contingency.

Brewery news USA, FL: Brew Theory, Shipyard Brewing agree to produce and sell Shipyard’s beers in Florida
Orlando, Florida-based Brew Theory has reached a licensing agreement with Portland, Maine-headquartered Shipyard Brewing to produce and sell the company’s portfolio of products in the Sunshine State, Brewbound reported on May 22.

“Jeremy and his company have the same kind of passion we have for Florida and strong belief in the craft business down here,” Shipyard co-founder and CEO Fred Forsley said, referring to Brew Theory founder Jeremy Roberts. “In the last three to six years, [craft beer has] just exploded in Florida and to be honest, we’re looking as we evolve — I’m getting a little older — for people that we can collaborate with and grow our brand.”

Forsley views the deal as an investment in the state, rather than Shipyard abandoning one of its oldest markets. News of the deal was first reported on by Craft Brew News.

“It’s not an exit in any way in Florida,” Forsley said. “In fact, it’s a way for us to hopefully keep growing in Florida, long into the future.”

In recent years, Shipyard’s volume has fluctuated and the brewery has slid up and down the Brewers Association’s (BA) rankings of the nation’s top 50 craft breweries by volume. In 2019, Shipyard ranked No. 42, ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, MA: White Lion Brewing sees launch delayed by pandemic’s reach
The coronavirus pandemic has of course caused immense large tragedies in numerous lives. But it also has caused minuscule twinges of pain, which although may be microscopic in comparison, still elicit a sigh or two.

One such local mild annoyance for beer fans is the delay in White Lion Brewing’s opening of its brewery and taproom in downtown Springfield. The company, which is set to become Springfield’s first fully operational independent craft brewery, has seen its launch delayed by the pandemic’s reach, masslive.com reported.

The 11,000 square-foot facility at 1500 Main St. sits in the space formerly occupied by Spaghetti Freddy’s.

Brewery founder Ray Berry said the company had been in a position to likely have a series of soft openings in June if the COVID-19 pandemic had not taken place. But now he’s looking at actual brewing at the new facility to take place in August, followed by some soft openings of the taproom in September.

Finally realizing the dream that he envisioned five years ago was worth the wait, Berry said.

“We’re super excited to be downtown,” he said. “That was our original objective. We’ve been able to meet that, and it will be an extra attraction/destination for folks, – individuals and families ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, MN: Swing Barrel Brewing starts canning process before fully opening up
Swing Barrel Brewing was originally planning to get its Moorfield taproom off the ground before doing any sorts of cans.

Once the pandemic hit, they decided to start with the canning process before fully opening up, KVRR reported on May 23.

During its opening weekend, the store is selling three different beers: Honey blonde bombshell, Session one Amber Ale and Indie Four Brown Ale.

It was also giving out some merchandise.

“Really excited, actually. Not nervous, just excited to finally get our beer out to people to try. And for them to experience something that we’re so very proud of, and so we’re excited to bring that to everybody else,” says Sean Syverson, Co-Owner of Swing Barrel Brewing.

The store is tentatively planning on fully opening its doors in June.

Brewery news Asia: Heineken and Tiger Beer reveal online sales surge amid pandemic
Heineken and Tiger Beer have taken measures to revise marketing strategies and double-down on product innovation after seeing online sales surge as the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak hit on-trade consumption, FoodNavigator-Asia.com reported on May 25. Both Heineken and Tiger are operated by HEINEKEN APAC in the Asia Pacific region. Despite losses from on-site beer consumption wrought by lockdowns throughout the region, the firm has maintained that online sales have more than made up for this.

“Where countries have to close F&B outlets and implement some form of lockdown as part of safe distancing measures, we [have seen] an impact on the sale of our beers,” HEINEKEN APAC Heineken and Tiger Brand Director Maud Meijboom told FoodNavigator-Asia.

“The impact has differed by brand, for example whether they have a significant footprint in the F&B outlets, [and] for newer products it also depends on what channels we are looking at, e.g. new products we have launched in retail are performing in line with the trend in that channel.

“[That said], online sales are going up for us during this period for two reasons: With safe distancing measures in place, a number of countries have implemented closure of F&B businesses ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Craft brewers forced to turn soon-to-expire beer into gin
With Japan's bars and restaurants largely empty of revellers during the coronavirus pandemic, craft beer consumption dried up and left owners needing a near-miracle to stop them from having to pour their valuable stocks down the drain, The Mainichi reported on May 26.

That was when a long-established microbrewery northeast of Tokyo came to a Jesus-like water-into-wine rescue, in this case discovering a technique to turn soon-to-expire craft beer into gin.

Due to craft beer's relatively short shelf life, the brewery's revelation meant beer that had been sitting in bar and restaurant kegs for almost too long could be converted into long-life gin.

The project, cleverly dubbed "Save Beer Spirits," was launched by Kiuchi Brewery Inc. in Naka, Ibaraki Prefecture, and helped craft beer producers and sellers weather the coronavirus storm.

It also positioned the businesses well for when they are able to quench their customers' thirsts upon the return of normal life.

Kiuchi collects the craft beer in kegs from liquor shops, bars and restaurants and puts it through the required two-stage distillation process before converting it into gin. After bottling for distribution, the products are returned, with the business owners only required to pay for delivery.

As of May 21, the company had collected ...More info on site
