Anheuser-Busch announced on February 21 it will become the U.S. importer of the upscale Grolsch traditional European beer brands, giving the American brewer a well-established and popular entry in the growing U.S. import category, the two brewers jointly announced today.

The agreement gives the Dutch brands access to the Anheuser-Busch broad marketing and sales expertise and to its wide reaching U.S. distribution network. The deal is part of an aggressive push by Anheuser-Busch into high-end beer categories.

“Grolsch is a quality, well-known name among American beer drinkers, making it an ideal partner to begin building our import portfolio around,” said Anheuser Busch Inc. President August A. Busch IV. “Together with our wholesalers, we are excited to gain these brands and help them grow with the talents and resources only our team can offer.”

Grolsch Premium Lager, the Dutch brewer’s largest-selling brand, is famous for its distinctive taste, iconic “swing-top” bottle closure and green embossed bottle. The deal also includes the entire Grolsch brand line-up, including the small, but growing Grolsch Amber Ale, Grolsch Light Lager and Grolsch Blonde Lager.

The agreement will broaden Grolsch’s U.S. distribution by giving the Dutch brewer access to the Anheuser Busch network of nearly 600 independent wholesalers, who ...

0 Australia: Western Australian barley growers do better than South Australia growers

Western Australian barley growers have received up to A$20 a tonne more for their grain than their South Australian counterparts, Australia & NZ News communicated on February 20. The WA system of grain handling allows multiple companies to export grain rather than the single desk system operated by ABB in South Australia.

Independent agribusiness consultant Ron Story says growers in Western Australia usually get better returns from cheaper handling and shipping costs.

But he says the gap between states was even higher this year. "On the facts, there have been higher prices available for a period of time, not the entire season but a period of time from the impact of having other exporters in the market," he said.
