Brewery news Japan: Major brewers stepping up production and sale of draft beer for restaurants
Major Japanese brewers are stepping up the production and sale of draft beer for use in restaurants and drinking establishments, NHK.JP reported on October 19.

They are responding to a recovery in demand as pandemic-related restrictions on serving alcohol have been eased after the expiry of the state of emergency at the end of last month.

Asahi Breweries is shipping three-and-a-half times more of its key-brand beer to businesses in October than September.

Sapporo Breweries is tripling output of draft beer in October, with a fourfold increase in November, compared to last month.

Meanwhile, Kirin Brewery is trying to sell more beer in 3-liter plastic bottles in a switch from the 7-liter kegs that used to be the preferred size for dispensers at drinking establishments.

Small restaurants are opting for the 3-liter product, because it allows them to manage inventory better and reduce waste.

They are having a hard time predicting customer numbers, as some local governments continue to urge shorter business hours, and more people are working from home.

Brewers see draft beer for commercial sale as the key pillar of their revenue as they aim to revive sales.

Brewery news Nigeria: Heineken bids to increase its controlling equity stake in Champion Breweries to 76%
Investors appeared ecstatic over the bid by Heineken to acquire about 1.197 billion ordinary shares of 50 kobo each in Akwa Ibom-based Champion Breweries, a move that may increase the controlling equity stake of the Netherlands-based Heineken in the Nigerian brewer to about 76 per cent, The Nation reported on October 18.

Champion Breweries closed weekend as the highest gainer for the week, in terms of percentage, with a gain of 49.52 per cent to close at N3.14 per share. Market analysts said investors were responding to the takeover bid with expectation that Heineken will offer premium price to attract investors. However, the company has not indicated the offer price for the MTO.

In a regulatory filing at the Nigerian Exchange (NGX) Limited, Heineken, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Raysun Nigeria Limited, indicated that it plans to acquire 1.197 billion ordinary shares or about 15.3 per cent additional stake in Champion Breweries under a mandatory takeover bid (MTO).

Heineken holds the majority equity stake in both Nigerian Breweries and Champion Breweries, which are both quoted on the NGX. Heineken, through Raysun Nigeria Limited, holds 60.7 per cent majority equity stake in Champion Breweries. Akwa Ibom State holds 10 per cent equity stake while ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Budweiser plans UK’s first hydrogen-powered brewery in South Wales by 2024
Budweiser has announced plans for the UK's first hydrogen-powered brewery in South Wales by 2024, the Daily Mail reported on October 19.

The firm has joined forces with Protium, a UK-based green hydrogen energy services company, to install hydrogen-powered solutions at its Magor Brewery.

It claims the change will save a whopping 15,500 tonnes of carbon emissions annually from 2027.

Mauricio Coindreau, Head of Sustainability and Procurement at Budweiser Brewing Group said: 'Sustainability and the wellbeing of our planet are at the core of our business.

'Innovative energy solutions like hydrogen have huge potential as a key part of our sustainability strategy, helping us significantly reduce our UK carbon footprint.'

Budweiser has not disclosed how much the project will cost.

Hydrogen is the lightest and the most abundant element in the universe, and produces zero greenhouse gas emissions.

It can be produced through several methods, including natural gas reforming, electrolysis, or, as is the case with Budweiser, through solar-driven processes.

Chris Jackson, CEO of Protium, explained: 'Green hydrogen is a truly exciting opportunity for the global energy sector and the UK economy as a whole, with various energy leaders and environmentalists supporting its deployment, so we're delighted to be working with a brand that ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Beer prices set to rise by as much as 30p a pint - sources
UK beer prices are set to rise by as much as 30p a pint, according to reports, rhyljournal.co.uk reported on October 19.

This is even before any duty increases are potentially announced in Rishi Sunak's Budget.

The anticipated price hike comes amid as more than eight out of 10 British pubs are said to have raised, or are planning to raise, their costs.

Rising costs to the price of a pint is reportedly a result of higher wages, coupled with energy and supply shortages.

Publicans are now appealing to Chancellor Rishi Sunak to freeze the alcohol duty rate amid fears a £6 pint could become commonplace in London and the south east.

The Times reports that drinks wholesalers Matthew Clark and Bibendum are hiking prices up by between 3.5 and 5 per cent next month.

It follows warnings that a shortage of hospitality staff returning after furlough has led pubs to increase wages to fill the estimated 134,000 vacancies across the sector.

Hospitality businesses across the UK, including pubs, restaurants and hotels, have been suffering with supply chain issues and a shortage of food and drink items.

A spokesman for the companies, which are owned by the C&C Group, told The Times: “As our industry recovers from the ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: BrewDog reportedly pushes back IPO plans
BrewDog has been seemingly unstoppable, even in the face of turbulent times. But even the cult beer brand couldn’t escape unscathed from the pandemic, it seems, The Grocer reported on October 19.

Founder James Watt has reportedly pushed back plans to float for what could be another one or two years, after advisers and banks advised an IPO should be delayed because Covid has made the hospitality industry too unpredictable. “Could it be sometime in 2022? Maybe. 23? Maybe,” he told The Telegraph this week.

But could the decision to delay the IPO go deeper?

BrewDog is an ingenious brand. With great product. And its marketing, though often controversial, eyebrow-raising or just downright annoying, is secretly the envy of many in the industry. It is no stretch to say that it has almost single-handedly changed the UK beer market.

It is still much-loved by consumers, too. Punk IPA is, after all, the UK’s third biggest ale brand, while its Hazy Jane beer is fast rising steadily up the ranks. Surely that would be an attractive prospect for investors.

But everything that makes BrewDog a powerful, innovative brand, let alone that lets it get away with its various controversies, is, frankly, anathema to what makes ...More info on site

Barley news Canada: Barley exports in 10 weeks of this marketing year the highest for the period since at least 2013-14
Canadian barley exports in weeks 1-10 of this marketing year were the highest for the period since at least 2013-14, driven by strong purchases from China and despite expectations of weaker domestic output, the Argus Media reported on October 19.

Canada shipped 540,000 tonnes of barley in weeks 1-10 of the 2021-22 marketing year that started in August, Canadian Grain Commission data show. This was up from the previous record of 514,000 tonnes a year earlier and far above an average of 136,000t for the same period in 2013-20.

Exports accelerated in late September after a slow start to the season, with shipments peaking at 225,000 tonnes in the week to 25 September.

Exports rose to a new high despite production falling to 7.1 mln tonnes in weeks 1-10 from 10.7 mln tonnes a year earlier, as hot and dry weather weighed on yields, offsetting higher acreages than in previous years.

This was as China made stronger and earlier purchases of the crop — unlike previous years. A breakdown of Canadian exports by country is not available yet, buy Chinese customs data show Canada was China's largest barley supplier in July-August, receiving 444,000 tonnes, with Argentina supplying the second-highest volume, at 387,000 tonnes.

Barley news Ukraine: Farmers harvest 9.6 mln tonnes of barley so far
Ukrainian farms have harvested 52 million tonnes of grain from almost 73% of its sowing area, with the yield averaging 4.48 tonnes per hectare, the agriculture ministry said on October 19.

The volume includes 32.3 million tonnes of wheat, 9.6 million tonnes of barley, 6.9 million tonnes of corn and small volumes of other grains, the ministry said.

Favourable weather could help Ukraine to harvest a record 80.3 million tonnes of grain this year, up from 65 million tonnes in 2020, the ministry has said.

Barley news Russia: Russia’s barley import drops 69.8% this year
According to the RF Federal Customs Service statistics, Russia imported 6.2 thousand tonnes of barley in January-August this year, down 69.8% versus the same period in 2020.

In terms of value, barley imports declined by 48.6% to $1.8 mln.

Barley news Australia: Carlton & United Breweries facility in Yatala now brewing beer with Australian barley
Australia’s largest brewery at Yatala, Queensland is now brewing beer with barley traceable back to its farm of origin as part of a groundbreaking deal with Aussie growers, the Brews News reported on October 18.

The deal means beer lovers can enjoy a VB, Carlton Dry or Pure Blonde knowing it’s been brewed entirely with barley sourced direct from select NSW farmers.

Under the old model, farmers sold their grain to bulk handlers who stored it all together, meaning the barley used for brewing was potentially from hundreds of different farms.

But Asahi Beverages, which owns Carlton & United Breweries, has now removed the bulk handlers from the barley supply chain – allowing brewers to work directly with growers to select and perfect barley types.

The move means Asahi Beverages will now buy up to 40,000 tonnes of barley direct from NSW every year to supply the Yatala brewery.

Yatala’s Brewing Manager Garry Menz said the direct purchase agreement allowed Asahi Beverages to trace its grain back to the farm where it was grown.

“Our brewing team can now track the barley from NSW farms while ensuring farmers get additional payments that otherwise would have gone to the bulk handlers. This allows Asahi to secure a ...More info on site
