Brewery news The Czech Republic: Budejovicky Budvarís output reaches highest level in its 124 years
Beer production at Budvar, which has been in a long legal dispute with U.S. giant Anheuser-Busch over use of the "Budweiser" brand, increased last year to the highest level in the brewer's 124-year history, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported on June 24.

Budejovicky Budvar NP, a Czech state-owned brewery, said on June 24 that its output rose 4.8% to 1.679 million hectolitres (44.36 million gallons) in 2019, before the pandemic hit global trade and business.

The brewer's exports were up 7.4% to 1.154 million hectolitres (30.49 million gallons) last year, also a record, to almost 80 countries. Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Russia and Britain were the biggest foreign markets for Budvar last year.

Budvar says its revenues hit a record high last year, reaching more than 2.8 billion crowns ($119 million). The profit figures have not been released.

The brewer has been expanding to be able to produce over 2 billion hectolitres of beer a year.

Brewery news UK & Ireland: Guinness ramping up production as pubs and bars prepare to reopen
Guinness is ramping up production of the black stuff as pubs and bars across Ireland and the UK prepare to reopen in a matter of days, the Irish Post reported.

Pubs serving food will reopen in Ireland from June 29 while in England, pubs and bars are set to reopen with a one-metre-plus social distancing rule in place for patrons.

Itís a scenario that has seen Guinness leap back into action after a period of relative inaction at Dublinís St Jamesís Gate brewery, where production dropped to the minimum level required to keep yeast stocks alive during lockdown.

Aidan Crowe, the director of operations at the brewery, said Guinness also sought to support on-trade customers by retrieving untouched kegs from closed hospitality outlets.

ďItís been a tough time in the brewery but itís been a much tougher time if youíre trying to run on-trade outlets in this part of the world," he told the Press Association [via Metro].

ďThatís why it was very, very important right from the start of the lockdown to support the on-trade as much as we could. Thatís why we took the decision to bring back all of the beer from the on-trade.Ē

He added: ďBasically ...More info on site

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

Total domestic use is expected to increase by 20%, largely due to strong feed use.

Exports for the first nine months of the crop year fell by 22% and 3% for barley grains and products, respectively. Total exports are expected to decrease based on the export pace.

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

Increased barley supplies in Canada and around the world have weighed on barley prices. For the crop-year to-date, barley prices in the Prairie Provinces declined from a year ago but remained strong. For the entire crop year, the feed barley price at Lethbridge feedlots is expected to be 12% lower than last year.

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 April, exports to China decreased by 18% particularly due to the declined exports to this country in February and March and nil in April.

Barley news USA: Government approves changes to federal crop insurance for malting barley
Changes are coming to the crop insurance program for malting barley, KFGO News reported on June 26.

The USDA Risk Management Agency and the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation Board of Directors have approved changes to the malting barley endorsement for federal crop insurance.

U.S. Senator John Hoeven says utilizing the local market price for barley will help ensure fair compensation for malting barley. He adds, that he appreciates the FCIC and RMA Administrator Barbre for making the adjustment, which will ensure that this specific crop insurance policy reflects the actual prices producers are receiving, ensuring producers are compensated accurately.

The malting barley endorsement provides quality loss coverage for growers that produce malting barley under contract.

HopsHops News Hops

Hops news Canada: Hop growing getting a lot of attention in the last five years
Hops might possibly be the most intensive crop you could grow in Canada, and arenít for the faint of heart. Growing hops commercially has gotten a lot of attention in the last five years on the Prairies with the influx of craft breweries. Previously, hops were mainly grown in Ontario and British Columbia, and, in B.C. in particular, hops were a major commodity in the lower mainland until production moved south to the Yakima Valley in Washington and parts of Oregon and Idaho, RealAgriculture reported on June 24.

Ball park installation costs for a hop yard is C$12,000 per acre, more or less. Production inputs are approximately C$700 per acre, with labour costs being equivalent to that amount, so in total C$1,400 per acre to grow each year. In addition to production costs, specialized equipment is required including bine-cutters (itís a bine, not a vine), a stationary picker that isnít made in North America, drying boxes or space to dry them, balers, and a pelletizer, if you plan on selling them dry, not fresh. Hops require processing knowledge that has been missing in B.C. since the í80s and what knowledge is left over is time-stamped and isnít considered valid anymore.
