Brewery news USA: Boston Beer’s Q3 net revenue increases by 30.2% versus last year
The Boston Beer Company, Inc. reported on October 22 third quarter 2020 net revenue of $492.8 million, an increase of $114.3 million or 30.2%, from the same period last year.

Net income for the third quarter was $80.8 million, an increase of $36.0 million or 80.6% from the same period last year.

Earnings per diluted share were $6.51, an increase of $2.86 per diluted share, or 78.4% from the third quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily due to increased revenue that was driven by shipment growth of 30.5%, partially offset by lower gross margins and increases in operating expenses.

Earnings per diluted share for the 39-week period ended September 26, 2020 were $12.90, an increase of $4.83 or 59.9% from the comparable 39-week period in 2019. Net revenue for the 39-week period ended September 26, 2020 was $1.275 billion, an increase of $327.0 million or 34.5% from the comparable 39-week period in 2019.

The company began seeing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its business in early March. The direct financial impact of the pandemic has primarily shown in significantly reduced keg demand from the on-premise channel and higher labor and safety-related costs at the company's breweries.

Brewery news UK: Diageo to roll out alcohol-free Guinness next week
Diageo has unveiled an alcohol-free Guinness stout that will be rolled out in the UK next week, The Drinks Business reported on October 22.

The beer, which was made at Guinness’ St James Gate brewery in Dublin, comes in at 0.0% ABV, contains 16 calories per 100ml, and will be rolled out in the UK from 26 October. A full 440ml can contains just over 70 calories, and carry a recommended retail price of between £3.50 and £4.50 for a pack of four.

It is a de-alcoholised beer, where the alcohol is removed through a cold filtration method.

Most mainstream beers are either cold filtered to remove the yeast and bacteria, or heat pasteurised to kill all yeast and bacteria. Cold filtration allows the alcohol to be filtered out “without presenting thermal stress to the beer, protecting the integrity of its taste and character”, according to a spokesperson for Diageo, which owns the Guinness brewery.

Guinness 0.0 will be available in 440ml can 4-pack format in off-licences and supermarkets Waitrose and Morrison’s from 26 October, before rolling out to other retailers. It will be available in pubs across Ireland and Great Britain from Spring 2021 and available in more markets throughout the world later ...More info on site

Barley news North America: Canada and US barley crops seen slightly smaller this year
Statistics Canada reduced its barley crop estimate slightly to 10.4 mln vs. 10.55 mln tonnes last year. Private estimates are as high as 11 mln tonnes, with an export surplus of 3.0 mln, H. M. Gauger GmbH reported earlier in October.

The harvest went smoothly, and the barley quality is good, with a large percentage of selectable malting barley. If almost 2 mln tonnes are already sold to China, the export target looks realistic. However, port capacity is large, but limited, and wheat exports from Pacific ports are more profitable than barley.

The Small Grains report of the USDA shows a US barley crop of 165 mln bushels (3.6 mln tonnes), down from 3.75 mln last year. The main production states were: Idaho 1.2 mln tonnes, Montana 1.0 mln, North Dakota 0.63 mln tonnes.

Barley news Australia & Vietnam: Australia engaging with Vietnamese brewers and maltsters to boost barley exports
With Vietnam’s malting barley imports set to nearly double by 2030, the Australian Export Grains Innovation Centre (AEGIC) is engaging with Vietnamese brewers and maltsters to ensure Australia maintains a significant market share, Grain Central reported on October 22.

Last week, AEGIC hosted a virtual event for the Vietnamese brewing and malting industry to provide an update on the 2020 growing season and communicate the benefits of Australian malting barley.

AEGIC barley markets manager Mary Raynes said Vietnam was famous for its beer drinking culture.

“Vietnam is in the top 10 beer markets globally and Australia is their largest supplier of malt and malting barley,” she said.

“Vietnam consumed more than 4.6 billion litres of beer in 2019. COVID has had an impact on beer consumption, however Vietnam is the third largest consumer of beer in Asia and the largest in South East Asia.”

Ms Raynes said beer production would increase by 2-3 per cent per annum towards 2030, boosting demand for malt and malting barley.

“AEGIC analysis forecasts that Vietnam’s malting capacity will increase towards 2030, which will result in malting barley imports jumping to about 330,000 tonnes, nearly double that required in 2019,” she said.

The webinar – “Australian Malting Barley: Optimising Value” – had ...More info on site

Whisky news India: Beam Suntory announces launch of Japanese blended whisky Suntory Whisky Toki
Beam Suntory, has announced the launch of an exquisite Japanese blended whisky, Suntory Whisky Toki, under the iconic, House of Suntory portfolio. The launch will mark the first expansion of the portfolio since its launch in India late last year with the introduction of the single malt Yamazaki Distiller’s Reserve, blended whisky Hibiki Japanese Harmony and Japanese Craft Gin Roku, fnbnews.com reported on October 23.

It is a blended whisky that is inspired by Japan’s culture, heritage and future-forward outlook. It represents the best of old and new bringing together the rich, age-old legacy with its contemporary and modern spirit to perfect a blend that is both groundbreaking and timeless.

Traditionally, in the time-honoured process of blending whiskies in Japan, grain whiskies have acted as dashi, meant to accentuate the flavours of key malts used. However, with the wide variety of grain whiskies that are produced in the company’s Chita distillery, Shinji Fukuyo, the fourth chief blender was inspired to reimagine the role of these grain whiskies to produce an artful blend that is a balance of subtlety and refinement.

Neeraj Kumar, managing director, Beam Suntory India, said, “We are delighted with the appreciation received for the launch of The House of Suntory ...More info on site
