Brewery news USA: Off-premise beer sales growth begins to slow in final full week of June
The slowdown in off-premise beer sales began to set in during the last full week in June, but as states began to shut down on-site sales for a second time, another spike is expected, Brewbound reported on July 7.

For the one-week period ending June 27, beer category dollar sales increased 16.1%, to $1.007 billion, according to data shared by market research firm Nielsen. Excluding FMBs, hard seltzers and cider, core beer dollar sales increased just 8.1%.

“We are finally seeing the off-premise slowdown that many of us expected to see several weeks ago, when on-premise started opening up,” said Danelle Kosmal, Nielsen VP of beverage alcohol practice. “For the week ending June 27, 2020, total alcohol off-premise alcohol sales were up 19.2%, which is the second slowest growth week since mid-March.”

Nevertheless, the last full week of June marked the fifth time in the last six weeks that beer category sales topped $1 billion. Year-to-date, beer category sales are up 16%, to $21.8 billion. During the COVID-19 weeks, from early March through June 27, beer category dollar sales have increased 21.1%, to $15.8 billion.

Brewery news USA: Covid-19 pandemic disrupts both brewing industry and outlook for barley growers
Where do you like to grab a cold beer? Big games, concerts, bars and restaurants are popular places to tip back a bottle or a draft. But since March, venues where people typically drink beer have been either closed or have seen major changes to prevent the spread of coronavirus. That’s pushed many beer drinkers back home, sending off-sale beer sales soaring.

Those changes have disrupted the brewing industry and the outlook for barley growers, AG Week reported on July 4.

“Essentially, all the on-premises business went to zero,” says Doug Restemayer, president of D-S Beverages in Moorhead, Minn. “So all of our draft business pretty much dried up literally overnight.”

Craft beer sales across the country dropped as much as 80% since the pandemic started. But Restemayer says canned beer sales skyrocketed, especially larger packages of lower-priced beers. That’s good news for malting barley growers, although questions remain about the future. “We’re in territory that we just are not exactly sure where we’re going here. Things are changing daily and we’re just not sure where we’re going,” says barley farmer Greg Kessel.

Kessel farms in Belfield, N.D., and also is the chair of the North Dakota Barley Council. He says all of North Dakota’s ...More info on site

Brewery news Australia: Hospitality industry calls for beer tax to be scrapped or frozen before it comes into force
The hospitality industry is calling for Australia's beer tax to be scrapped or frozen before it comes into force next month, the Daily Mail reported on July 6.

The Australian Federal Government currently taxes an average of A$2.26 per litre of beer, which is set to increase to an unknown amount on August 1.

Without the increase, Australians already pay the fourth highest tax on beer in the industrialised world after Norway (A$3.46), Japan (A$2.92) and Finland (A$2.46).

Germany dropped its low beer tax of A$0.13 per litre to zero amid the COVID-19 pandemic while the UK froze its tax at A$1.52 to provide certainty to businesses.

Now, pubs and brewers are calling for the tax increase to either be scrapped or for the tariff to be frozen at its current level.

Brewers Association of Australia CEO Brett Heffernan said 'there is no logical reason for Aussies to be paying even more for beer'.

‘As the hospitality industry battles with the devastating economic impacts of COVID-19 this latest increase in tax comes at a time when publicans and patrons can least afford it,' Mr Heffernan said.

'We appreciate politicians of every persuasion are urging people to get down to ...More info on site

Barley news UK: Malting barley harvest across southern England shows yields better than expected
Combines started cutting early winter malting barley crops this week across southern England, with yields better than expected after a very difficult growing season, FarmersWeekly reported on July 7.

Scattered crops of malting varieties were being cut from East Anglia down into Dorset, while one Norfolk grower dipped into his oilseed rape ahead of winter barley.

After drying winds early this week, harvest started of the heritage variety Maris Otter, as well as more mainstream Craft amid uncertain demand for malting barley as the coronavirus lockdown is slowly eased.

Dorset farm manager Martin Ford started cutting 190ha of Maris Otter on July 6 on light land in the south of the county and was very pleased with a yield of 6.5t/ha.

This season’s crop delivered a similar yield to last year and with a good grain sample, so Mr Ford was happy, especially after a tricky growing season with a very wet autumn and winter followed by a bone-dry spring.

“Otter is very reliable. It is early to harvest, so gives us a good early entry for oilseed rape and last year’s crop fetched £205/t,” he said.

Mr Ford hopes to finish cutting the Maris Otter by the weekend at Charborough Park, between Blandford Forum and ...More info on site
