Brewery news South Korea: Jeju Beer preparing to be listed on the KOSDAQ
Jeju Beer is preparing to be listed on the KOSDAQ for the first time in the Korean beer industry within the first half of this year. Jeju Beer is planning to increase its production facilities and lead the market through the IPO, The Jeju Weekly reported on May 10.

On February 25th, the KOSDAQ headquarters of the Korea Exchange approved a preliminary review for the listing of Jeju beer on the KOSDAQ. It will be the first domestic beer company to be listed on the KOSDAQ and the second beer company in 12 years.

Jeju Beer started preparing for the IPO by requesting a preliminary review for listing on the KOSDAQ in November 2020. Public offering stocks amounted to 8,362,000 shares, which is 15% of the 55,995,890 total shares after listing. Daishin Securities is in charge of the listing supervision.

Jeju Beer plans to accelerate growth by increasing corporate value and expanding investment resources by listing on the KOSDAQ. The funds from IPO will respond to increased demand by investment in production and R&D facilities to introduce innovative beer products. Through this, the company aspires to achieve 10 cumulative product lineups within this year, contributing to market diversity and becoming a new game-changer ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Carlsberg and Marston’s brewery group appoints new CEO
Marston’s brewery group, a joint venture with Carlsberg, has appointed a new chief executive officer after the current boss decided earlier this year to depart the brewer, marketscreener.com reported on May 12.

Stepping into the helm on 3 October, Andrew Andrea will leave behind his role as the group’s chief financial officer (CFO).

“Despite the challenges of the last year, I am confident that we have a great team of energised and engaged people to deliver our vision, and I look forward to working with them and the board to return the business to growth and optimise the future opportunities available to us,” Andrea said.

Bringing over 23 years of experience within the pub and brewing industry to the top position, Andrea is no stranger to the group and is also a non-executive director of the Portmeirion group.

After joining Marston’s in 2002, the new CEO has sat on the board since 2009 and even had a stint of being operations director at the Marston’s Pub Company.

Current CEO Ralph Findlay will remain in the role until 2 October to ensure a smooth handover. Meanwhile, the search for a new CFO has begun.

“Andrew was the strongest contender from a selection of extremely high calibre candidates ...More info on site

Brewery news Ireland: Diageo busy keeping up with the increased demand ahead of restaurants and bars reopening
Following the recent announcement of the updated plans for reopening Ireland, the majority of restaurants and bars in Ireland are already planning for June 7, the Irish Mirror reported on May 8.

With outdoor services set to resume for groups limited to six people, the return of the hospitality sector is a massive boost for staff, patrons, and the public alike.

Last month, traditional pubs in Dublin marked 400 consecutive days of closure and while the majority of pubs in Ireland have remained closed, the taps haven't been exactly dry in others.

Throughout the pandemic, the popularity of takeaway pints has seen some pubs take in a small level of income and as expected, this would require the kegs to be replenished.

While Diageo hasn't exactly shut up shop since February 2020 - the world's largest producers of spirits and beers do have markets beyond Ireland and even in terms of this country, they did keep supply steady when lockdown was lifted last December - the recent decision to purse an outdoor summer will see local demand for Guinness, Smirnoff, Captain Morgan, Bell's etc increase.

Since the recent announcement was made about hospitality returning, the sight of kegs being unloaded in pubs and restaurants around ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Budweiser and Heineken worst affected amid major beer shortage at UK pubs
Budweiser and Heineken are the worst affected brewers amid a major beer shortage as demand soars after pubs reopened, it has been claimed.

Retailers and wholesalers said there are supply issues on multiple core beer lines, with a shortage of drivers also part of the problem, the Mirror reported on May 9.

It comes as pubs, bars and restaurants in England prepare to re-open for indoor trading from May 17 just weeks after the hospitality industry was allowed to begin serving al fresco.

Experts had predicted the initial easing of lockdown on April 12 would see punters sinking 92 pints a second in their local boozers - and that strain on the industry appears to be showing already.

Industry magazine The Grocer was told by one multi-convenience retailer a “perfect storm” of pressures is coming, with “a lack of drivers, an aluminium shortage and brewers diverting beer into kegs for the reopening of the on-trade as opposed to canning it”.

Another said wholesalers were “not getting the allocations of stock they need and that’s on top of the range reviews last year which resulted in rationalised ranges”.

While a buying group insider added distribution levels were “as bad as 50% for some of the biggest brands ...More info on site

Brewery news Germany & USA: German brewer Gilde to open a massive brewery in Charlotte, North Carolina
One of the oldest breweries in Germany released renderings today of its first location outside of Hannover, Germany in its 475-year history. It hopes to open The Embassy at Gilde Brewery on Dewitt Lane in Charlotte’s Lower South End neighborhood in fall 2021, according to a release on May 11, .

“We carefully selected Charlotte as our first brewery site outside of Hannover based on the community’s level of interest in high-quality beer and the connection between our two cities through Queen Charlotte, who was Queen of Hannover,” said Mike Gaertner, president of Gilde.

The 9,000-square-foot brewery will allow seating for 350 guests in both an interior bier haus and outdoor bier garten.

“We’ve been watching Charlotte’s beer scene grow and thrive for almost a decade now, and we’d be remiss if we didn’t introduce an authentic German beer to Charlotte’s lineup,” stated Karsten Uhlmann, CEO of Gilde. “As the original craft beer innovators, we will immerse guests in centuries of German brewing heritage combined with the creativity of the American beer movement.”

Gilde has tapped Willi Wallstab, a renowned German brewing master, to serve as brewmaster at Charlotte’s Gilde Brewery. According to the release, Wallstab will move to Charlotte this summer ...More info on site
