Brewery news USA: AB InBev creating new premium beer business in the US
Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) is creating a new business unit in the United States devoted to premium beers as it tries to improve its presence in a fast-growing segment of the beer market, Reuters reported on August 6.

With young drinkers increasingly interested in spirits and other drinks, the U.S. beer market shrank 1.9 percent in 2013 to 196.2 million barrels, according to the Brewers Association trade group. Yet "craft" beers, or those made by small, independent brewers, rose 17.2 percent.

The new unit, which will include AB InBev brands such as Goose Island and Blue Point, will be based in Chicago, which places it "in closer touch with urban consumers, their way of thinking, lifestyle and the accounts they visit," said an internal announcement made on August 6 and seen by Reuters.

It will be led by Felipe Szpigel, who joined the brewer 15 years ago as a global management trainee.

AB InBev, the world's largest brewer, is not alone in trying to accelerate sales of beers that are more profitable and appeal to more discerning drinkers.

MillerCoors, the combined US operations of SABMiller and Molson Coors, has a unit called Tenth and Blake, which promotes its premium beers Blue Moon, Jacob Leinenkugel and ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: AB InBev to launch new Mexican Montejo beer in September
Anheuser-Busch InBev is set to launch a new brand in the U.S. market’s thriving Mexican beer category. The brewing giant will introduce Montejo—produced by AB InBev subsidiary Grupo Modelo—in California, Texas, Arizona and New Mexico starting in September, Shanken News Daily reported on August 7.

The newcomer will go head-to-head with fellow Modelo brands Corona and Modelo Especial—which are controlled by Constellation in the U.S. market—as well as Heineken’s Mexican stable, including Dos Equis and Tecate. Mexican beer shipments to the U.S. rose 4.6% in 2013, according to Impact Databank, comprising 58% of the total imported beer market.

Additionally, AB InBev is planning to shift management of its premium craft and imported beers from its U.S. headquarters in St. Louis to a new divisional office in Chicago, Advertising Age reported on August 5. While there were no details on the exact timing of the move or exactly where the new offices will be located, the Chicago division reportedly will be headed by Felipe Szpigel, who’s set to relocate from New York, where he’s been vice president of trade marketing. Adam Oakley, the St. Louis-based vice-president of import, craft and specialty brands, is also expected to move to Chicago. Ad Age also ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Craft Brew Alliance reports Q2 financial results
Craft Brew Alliance, Inc., an independent craft brewing company, on August 6 reported its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

The results for the second quarter are in line with management's expectations, and the company confirms previously reported 2014 guidance, it said.

CBA's distinctive portfolio strategy continued to drive depletion growth in the second quarter, resulting in a 9% increase in depletions for the first half of 2014. Increased demand for CBA's well-loved brands, including Kona Brewing, Redhook Brewery and Omission, and the introduction of new favorite beers, such as Redhook KCCO Black Lager, led to a 17% increase in net sales and a 15% increase in total beer shipments in the first six months. The brewer’s gross margin rate increased by 230 basis points to 32.8% in the second quarter, which contributed to a 240 basis point increase and 30.3% gross margin rate year-to-date. CBA attributes the increase to significant advancements in its brewery efficiency and utilization and supply chain.

Year to date 2014 financial highlights

Depletion volume grew 9% over the first six months of 2013. Net sales and total beer shipments grew 17% and 15%, respectively, in the six-month period ended June 30, ...More info on site
