News Articles

Brewery news USA: September beer shipments virtually the same as last year, but January-September sees 0.9% decline
The US Beer Institute published an unofficial estimate of domestic tax paid shipments by beer brewers for September 2020 on October 29.

The September 2020 estimate is 14,800,000 barrels, which is virtually the same as the September 2019 removals of 14,796,000 barrels.

The year-to-date estimate is 126,551,000 barrels versus 127,665,663 barrels in January-September 2019 (minus 0.9%).

Brewery news USA: Consumption of alcohol-free beer and mocktails increases since the start of COVID-19
How is the alcohol-free category emerging in the US? Heineken USA recently conducted a survey of millennials to find out – which revealed that 52% of respondents have increased consumption of alcohol-free beer and mocktails since the start of COVID-19, BeverageDaily.com reported on October 30.

And 43% of those surveyed said they had tried alcohol-free beer for the first time since the start of COVID-19; while 61% have had alcohol-free beer during COVID-19 because they want to cut down their alcohol intake.

The Dutch brewer launched alcohol-free Heineken 0.0 in the US last year, following on from its European launch in 2017. While Heineken saw brand Heineken volumes decline 2.5% during the first six months of the 2020 – hit like many other brands as a result of the pandemic – Heineken 0.0 grew double digit with the company noting particular strength in the US.

Its US survey of millennials sought to shed light on the category in the US to track the alcohol-free trend.

Heineken USA surveyed 2,000 Americans aged 21-39 in September and October to see how drinking and wellness habits have changed. The average respondent in this group exercised four times a week; highlighted the importance of having a work/life ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, PA: Mondays Brewing opening in Peters on October 31
Mondays Brewing, named for the day of the week when many breweries and other hospitality businesses are closed or quiet, is opening Saturday, October 31 on Route 19 in Peters. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held there, fittingly, on Monday, November 2, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

The little brewery and taproom is a side hustle for Washington & Jefferson College computing and information studies professor Sam Fee, PhD., who lives in Peters. Some of his students helped him completely re-plumb and renovate this storefront in one of the many plazas on this stretch of the South Hills, which doesn’t have another brewery.

He wants it to be Peters’ “neighborhood brewery.” It’s a cozy spot, with a capacity of 79 people, so about 40 may be inside with COVID-19 restrictions. There’s also outdoor space for about 40 more on the side and at the front entrance.

Mr. Fee is working, with assistant brewer and local journalist Mike Jones, in the 5-barrel brewhouse and they have a half-barrel pilot system for smaller batches. Ashley Mikelonis is managing the taproom, where the tap handles are marked with the days of the week. When they have enough beer, there will be a special for each day.

Brewery news USA, FL: Mocama Beer Company hoping to launch within the next two weeks
Telling the story of Mocama, the coastal region that stretches from what is now southern Georgia down through the Okefenokee Swamp to the west coast of Florida, Hamp Tanner says the word means coast or ocean, the Fernandina Beach News-Leader reported on October 28.

“Mocama is where you live, where you are, and it’s the people who live here,” he explained. “Mocama people living in a Mocama place have a Mocama lifestyle.”

It’s also part of the name of a new venture Tanner recently helped launch: Mocama Beer Company, a locally owned and operated brewery making beer for local distribution. Currently, the company is selling its beer through North Florida Sales in kegs and on tap at local restaurants, as well as a few beers in cans at local retailers. Mocama’s beers will soon also be served in the company’s taproom at 629 S. Eighth St. in Fernandina Beach.

Co-founder, president, and chief financial officer, Tanner explained Mocama is neither a brewpub nor a restaurant but a brewery with a taproom occupying the front of the mid-century building that once housed Lasserre Motor Company, a Ford dealership that opened in 1953.

“Throughout our renovation and repurposing of the iconic building, we have done ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, VA: Wasserhund Brewing Company to open second location in Chesapeake in June 2021
Wasserhund Brewing Company has leased 4,000 square feet of prime, street-level space at Summit Pointe, in Chesapeake’s Central Business District. The second location for the brewery, located at 510 Belaire Avenue, is scheduled to open in June 2021, Brewbound reported on October 29.

The company’s first brewery opened in 2015 in Virginia Beach, and the company just celebrated its five-year anniversary. Wasserhund, meaning water dog in German, has created a strong following among beer lovers with a taste for authentic German-style beer and unique pizza.

The new brewery at Summit Pointe will feature its signature pizza and high-quality ales and lagers along with a chill, family friendly environment that celebrates the German beer culture. Its most popular beers include German Shepheweizen, a German-style hefeweizen; Unleashed Boysenberry Gose, a fruited gose; Purebred Pilsner, a German-style pilsner; and Doggy Paddle IPA, a West Coast IPA.

The founders, Aaron and Christine Holley, both military brats and chemical engineers from Virginia Tech, met and fell in love at Kellam High School in Virginia Beach. One trip to Oktoberfest in Munich motivated them to start home brewing and eventually to open the brewery at 1805 Laskin Road.

Wasserhund’s mission is to encourage people to eat, drink and enjoy good ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Craft brewers forced to turn unsold beer into gin
This was going to be a big year for Japan. With the Summer Olympics due to be hosted in Tokyo, the island nation expected 40 million tourists to grace its shores, CNN reported on October 23.

But when Covid-19 took hold, the Olympics were postponed and the already struggling economy took a further battering.

With bars and restaurants suffering a significant reduction in business, beer sales in Japan dropped 26% by volume for the first half of the year, according to Bloomberg.

That's a big problem for small beer breweries, says Isamu Yoneda, head distiller at artisanal drinks maker Kiuchi Brewery. With few customers in its brewpubs, and export orders canceled, Kiuchi Brewery was left with a stockpile of spoiling beer.

The company had to come up with a solution — and decided to turn the unsold beer into a different alcoholic beverage.

In April, Kiuchi Brewery launched the "Save Beer Spirits" campaign at its Tokyo distillery, offering local bars and breweries the chance to turn unused beer, a product with a four to six-month shelf life, into gin — a product without an expiration date.

In 1994, Japan relaxed its strict laws around microbrewing, sparking a boom in craft beer. While overall beer sales in Japan ...More info on site
