Brewery news USA: Off-premise beer sales top $1 bln during week ending May 30
Off-premise beer category sales topped $1 billion for the second consecutive week, which included the Memorial Day holiday, according to the latest one-week data slice shared by market research firm Nielsen, Brewbound reports.

For the week ending May 30, beer category scans in Nielsen tracked channels increased 18.2%, to $1,062,451,981. That total was just $28 million behind beer category sales during the July 4 holiday week in 2019, the firm reported.

Week-over-week sales of beer, FMBs and cider increased 2.4%, making beer the only alcohol category — and one of the few consumer goods categories — to grow sales compared to the prior week. Danelle Kosmal, Nielsen VP of the Beverage Alcohol Practice, called the week ending May 30 among the “slowest growth weeks since March.”

The deceleration of off-premise growth trends was expected as some bars and restaurants have begun reopening on-premise service across the country.

Nielsen also offered a review of the two weeks of off-premise sales encompassing the Memorial Day holiday period, as beer category dollar sales topped $2 billion, an increase of $344 million (or 19.6%) compared to the same two-week period in 2019.

Beer category dollar sales are up 17.3% year-to-date through May 31, according to Bump Williams Consulting (BWC), ...More info on site

Brewery news Australia: Brewers Association calls for beer excise freeze
The Brewers Association has called for the Australian government to freeze excise in advance of the next scheduled increase, due in August, Australian Brews News reported on June 9.

The statement calling to ‘put a cap on Australia’s beer tax’ from the peak body representing the interests of CUB, Lion and Coopers, described the price of a beer in Australia as ‘already over-the-top’.

“Now is not the time to be ramping up taxes on consumers,” Brewers Association of Australia CEO Brett Heffernan said yesterday in a media release.

“With more and more Aussies out of work and everyone counting their pennies, jacking up beer tax would be another blow to punters and publicans, alike.

“August 1 is the deadline for averting the next hip-pocket slug to Australians doing it tough.”

“Tax accounts for 42% of the price of a stubby. On a typical A$52.00 carton, A$22.05 goes to the taxman. When it comes to taxing a drink, Aussies pay the fourth highest beer tax in the industrialised world.

“We’re not asking for a tax cut at this time … just don’t increase the tax. That would spare punters further pain, take pressure off hospitality venues and, because it’s revenue neutral, won’t cost Treasury a cent.

“Putting up ...More info on site

Brewery news Kenya: Tax increase on beer from sorghum, cassava or millet could result in loss of up to 330 thousand jobs
Kenya Treasury’s proposal to increase the tax on beer made from sorghum, cassava or millet will result in the loss of up to 330,000 jobs as demand drops due to a price hike of the affordable beer, distributors of Senator Keg have said.

The distributors and the Pubs and Restaurants Association of Kenya (PERAK) said the proposal by the Treasury would deal a damaging blow to efforts to reduce the number of drinkers taking illicit alcohol, The Standard reported on June 5.

Speaking at a press conference in Nairobi, they said the proposal made public last week was also ill-timed, as the industry is already reeling from the effects of the economic slowdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The proposal by your office will lead to an increase in the retail price of Keg beer at a time when we have observed a massive increase in illicit brew consumption due to closure of bars and a severely depressed economy affecting the daily wage economy,” they said in their submission to the Cabinet Secretary for the National Treasury, Ukur Yatani.

Thuku Kariuki, the spokesman for the Keg distributors, said the ripple effect of the tax would be devastating to their trade and would result in ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Suntory Holdings predicts 20% of bars and restaurants could fail due to coronavirus pandemic
Takeshi Niinami, the head of Japanese drinks and food group Suntory Holdings and a government adviser, predicted on June 5 that more than 20% of bars and restaurants could fail due to the coronavirus pandemic, WHTC News reported.

Japan's vibrant dining scene, from tapas style izakaya pubs and restaurants to Tokyo's high-end eateries boasting the largest number of Michelin stars of any city, mostly shut down in April as the government declared a state of emergency.

Even with the emergency status lifted, many restaurants are reopening with caution and with limiting seating and opening hours as customers remain wary of dining out. Niinami said he feared the country's eating-out culture could be hurt for good.

"If you ask me how much will return, I'd say roughly, around 80% will be back," Niinami, an economic adviser to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's government, told Reuters in an interview.

Niinami said that while the government's $1.1 trillion extra spending package approved last month was substantial, the government needed to be ready to provide more if a second wave of infections were to hit.

"I think it would be good to have 80% of them return, although of course I really want 100% back," he said. "Given the current ...More info on site
