Brewery news New Zealand: New Zealand’s craft beer sales soar, number of breweries doubles from 2010 - report
Sales of craft beer outside New Zealand’s pubs, clubs and restaurants have soared 42% in a year and now account for 13% of beer sales outside these premises by value, according to an ANZ Bank report.

It found the number of New Zealand’s craft brewers has more than doubled to 111 from 52 in 2010 and about 25 of them are exporting to more than 40 offshore markets.

Another 20 brewers could start exporting within the next two years, says the report.

New Zealand brewers attract investment at twice their annual revenue, higher than other industries, reflecting strong growth expectations.

“We’ve seen a material shift in thinking over the past year, with production soaring and brewers focusing more and more on overseas markets,” says ANZ regional manager Rob Simcic, who oversees the bank’s food and beverage strategy.

Asia, including China, will be a key market because of its fast-growing middle classes developing a taste for craft beer.

New Zealand craft beer sales to Asia doubled in the last two years, with half the volume going to China, but still only total NZ$2.7 million.

He says brewers tell the bank their exports are just getting started.

“Investors too are putting their money where their palate is, funding New Zealand ...More info on site

Brewery news Serbia: Beer consumption down 33% since 2008
Beer consumption in Serbia is down by 33 per cent compared to 2008, as the economic crisis is affecting purchasing power, ESM reported on August 14.

Speaking to the Tanjug news agency, the CEO of local brewer Apatinska Pivara (part of Molson Coors Europe), Dragan Radivojevic, said that beer consumption in 2014 amounted to four million hectolitres, compared to six million in 2008.

Other negative factors, according to Radivojevic, are the continued exodus from the country of young people, who are the top consumers, and the problem of the ageing population.

The high unemployment rate among young people is an additional problem not only for the beer industry, but also for other industries and the country as a whole.

On the other hand, there has been an increase in sales of cheaper beer, whose price has fallen since the beginning of the year by around 4 per cent, contributing to a worse financial performance of Serbian breweries compared to previous years.

Although other countries in the Former Yugoslavia region have seen a decline in beer sales due to the crisis, Radivojevic said that this drop is far lower than in Serbia and amounts to between five and seven per cent.

Despite the doom and gloom, Serbian ...More info on site

Brewery news Ireland: Heineken may acquire or partially take over drinks distributor Comans Wholesale
Heineken Ireland is in discussions that may lead to the acquisition of partial takeover of Comans Wholesale, one of the country’s leading drinks distribution businesses, Newstalk reported on August 14.

Industry sources suggest that any full takeover of Comans Wholesale could cost Heineken in the region of €25 mln.

Comans, which is principally owned by Geoff and Tom Coman of the well-known, Rathgar-based family of publicans, distributes a wide range of beers, wines and ciders to pubs, supermarkets and off-licences around the country including Dutch Gold, Prazsky and Druids.

It operates from a major distribution depot off of the M50 near Tallaght and employs some 130 people.

Heineken already has a close working relationship with Comans, whose subsidiary companies supply draft Heineken and Murphys beer to the nation’s pubs.

The takeover talks are understood to have been triggered in part by the launch of Heineken’s new cider, Orchard Thieves as one of Coman’s competing distribution companies, Gleesons, is now owned by C&C, makers of rival Bulmers cider products.

A spokesman for Heineken has declined to comment on whether the company is in talks with the wholesaler.

Barley news World: Commodity markets collapse in July on numerous bearish trends
Commodity markets collapsed in July. Fundamentals were bearish: large, burdensome grain and oilseed crops and stocks in the world, improved weather outlook in the U.S. and Europe, initial harvest results of wheat and barley clearly better than forecast, increasing offers of crude oil, pessimistic forecasts for the world economy, particularly China, political unrest and warfare in Eastern Europe and the Islamic world, H. M. Gauger GmbH said in their August report.

As always in such situations, financial funds rush into markets and accelerate price movements. The question is, whether markets have reached a bottom. Some affirmative indications are: India and Iran announced import duties, farmers are pleading for subsidies, and French farmers started a self-defence by stopping German and Spanish food imports at the border.

As per sources reports, world market prices dropped by around 10% in July.
