Brewery news Germany: Oktoberfest cancellation a blow for Germany's beer brewers
Germany’s beer brewers were already reeling from the economic downturn in spring this year when coronavirus lockdowns shuttered bars and restaurants. They were dealt a second blow after the cancellation of Oktoberfest, the world’s biggest beer festival, which would have been kicking off this weekend, Yahoo Sports reported on September 16.

Oktoberfest which runs from mid-September until early October in Munich every year, attracts more than 6 million visitors, who spend about €440 mln (£405 mln, $522 mln) and drink 7 million litres of beer at the 16-day beer festival.

Indirectly, including hotels, taxis, restaurants and so on, Oktoberfest generated more than €1.2 bln for the local economy last year.

“A complete sales channel for us brewers just broke down overnight,” Andreas Steinfatt, director of gastronomy and marketing at the Paulaner Brewery Group told reporters this week. Oktoberfest is “a brand stage for Munich beers,” Steinfatt said.

“What the long-term effects will be for our industry is a bit like looking in a crystal ball at the moment,” Steinfatt added.

“The German beer market is down about 6.2% overall as of July, compared to last year,” Jörg Lehmann, chief executive of the Paulaner Brewer Group and president of the German Brewers Bund told reporters in ...More info on site

Brewery news Belgium: Beer and fries production could be severely affected by climate change - report
The production of two of Belgium’s iconic products, beer and fries, could be severely affected by climate change, according to a report commissioned by the National Climate Commission.

The report, “Evaluation of the socio-economic impact of climate change in Belgium”, looks at the current forecasts for the effects of climate change, and the effect on a variety of economic sectors, including energy, fisheries, tourism, agriculture and transport.

“In recent years Belgium has experienced persistently mild winters, recurring drought episodes and a succession of hot summers, culminating in the unprecedented temperature extremes recorded during the summer of 2019,” says the report, which was written before this summer’s record-breaking temperatures.

“These phenomena have already affected agricultural yield, mortality figures and labour productivity loss, among other things.”

Increased temperatures, especially the higher extremes, have an effect on labour productivity, especially in outdoor work like construction. Heatwaves have a negative effect on health, particularly among vulnerable populations, although there is an opposite effect from milder winters.

Infrastructure is damaged by both heat and flooding, another consequence of climate change. But it is in agriculture that the effects will be felt in the production of two of Belgium’s most world-famous products, beer and fries.

A combination of drought and heatwave in ...More info on site

Brewery news Canada: Millennials driving recent growth of no- and low-alcohol beer category - Budweiser Canada
Budweiser Canada revealed on September 16 that millennials are driving the recent growth of the no- and low-alcohol beer category, and the brand is introducing a new product – Budweiser Zero – to meet the demand.

According to consumer data, the 19-to-34-year-old age group – which includes millennials and older members of Generation Z – led all demographic groups in consumption volume of non-alcoholic beer including Budweiser Prohibition Brew, launched in 2016 as Budweiser Canada's first no-alcohol beer. Overall, 64% of no- and low-alcohol beer is consumed by those in the 19-to-34 bracket, with women most often choosing non-alcoholic beer as an alternative to sugary drinks while men see it as suitable for a variety of social occasions.

But, what's behind this trend? Research shows that it boils down to choice. Consumers – including both men and women in the 19-to-34 group – want more and better options, particularly when it comes to products that complement a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Under the current pandemic, our mental and physical health have never been more important, and millennials are taking control of their wellbeing and making positive choices.

"As a global leader in alcoholic beverages, we have an essential role to play in reminding Canadians ...More info on site

Barley news Australia & China: Australian farmers will be forced to target domestic market as China effectively bans imports from Australia
Australian farmers will be forced to sell their barley supplies to the domestic livestock industry or cheaper international markets after China effectively banned imports from Australia, farmers said on September 16.

China late on September 15 said it would ban barley imports from Australia’s largest grain exporter, just weeks after it slapped a more than 80% tariff on shipments from Australia.

The ruling has seen Chinese processors shun other Australian sellers amid fears that Beijing could ban other grain handlers.

As a result, Australian farmers will now target a domestic market, where demand is unusually high after a recent three-year drought wilted large areas of pasture.

“The financial hit will be enormous but we can look at domestic livestock market which doesn’t have much feed at hand after the drought,” Andrew Weidemann, a grain grower in Victoria told Reuters.

“The big issue is next year. If the season continues, there will be pasture and so farmers like myself will have to switch to other crops.”

China had until recently bought as much as 70% of Australia’s barley exports. But with that market closed, Australian farmers will receive about A$50 ($36.8) a tonne less than what China would typically pay.

The disruption of Australia’s barley market comes amid ...More info on site

Barley news Ukraine: Barley export prices pushed up by Chinese demand
A sharp jump in Chinese demand has pushed up Ukrainian barley export prices in the 2020/21 season, analyst APK-Inform said on September 18.

Ukraine is a long-standing barley grower and Saudi Arabia was its main export market for years.

"But this year, Chinese demand is just off scale," APK-Inform said, noting that in July-August China imported 97% more Ukrainian barley than in the same period of the previous season.

The consultancy said Chinese demand had caused a 20% increase in Ukrainian barley export prices so far this season, with prices reaching $177-189 per tonne CPT Black Sea as of Sept. 18.

Ukraine's economy ministry said last month the barley harvest could fall to 7.3 million tonnes in 2020 versus 8.9 million in 2019, and that exports might decrease to 3.3 million tonnes in 2020/21 from 5.1 million in 2019/20.
