Brewery news USA: Mexican beer sales growth expected to continue in 2016 and beyond
Given its relatively minuscule share of the $100 billion U.S. beer market, the craft beer industry gets outsize attention. That’s because craft is growing fast and has fueled rapid merger and acquisition action over the past few years, Fortune reported on December 30.

Meanwhile, a different slice of the beer market is picking up more bar taps and retail shelf space. Mexican-produced beers like Corona, Tecate, and Dos Equis are notching consistent gains, with volume growth for those beers expected to continue in 2016 and beyond.

“They get stronger and stronger by the day, as importers like Constellation Brands and Heineken get savvier,” Harry Schuhmacher, editor and publisher of industry publication Beer Business Daily, told Fortune in an interview. Those companies are spending more on marketing to help propel the growth of their Mexican imports business, he adds.

Schuhmacher says that beers like Modelo Especial and Corona are easy to drink, much like many U.S.-made light lagers. But they don’t stir the same scorn that some beer drinkers have for domestic beers like Bud Light and Miller Lite. As so, they’ve been able to steal market share from competitors.

The proof is in the sales data. Corona and Model Especial producer Constellation Brands posted ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Molson Coors completes distribution takeover of Staropramen beer from Carlsberg
The UK division of Molson Coors has completed the distribution takeover of its Staropramen brand in the country from Carlsberg.

The move, which was initially announced in June, is a result of the early termination of Staropramen's distribution arrangement between the two brewers. Carlsberg had handled the lager in the UK since 2011, a spokesperson for Molson Coors confirmed on January 5.

According to the MD of Molson Coors UK & Ireland, Frederic Landtmeters, the brand's arrival represents a "significant and exciting milestone" for the unit.

Staropramen joins Grolsch, Cobra and Singha in the unit's 'world beer' portfolio.

Molson Coors acquired the former owner of Staropramen, StarBev, in 2012.

Brewery news Indonesia: Alcoholic beverages producers working on curtailing declines after ban of sales in minimarkets and kiosks
When the government of Indonesia banned the sale of alcoholic beverages in minimarkets and kiosks in early 2015 in an effort to “protect the morals and culture of Indonesian society”, it came as a shock to alcoholic beverage producers. Although alcoholic drinks are still allowed to be sold in the larger supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and hotels, sales of beer plunged as the beverage was banned in the (estimated) 70,000 minimarkets that have become a very popular shopping place in the urban areas of Indonesia, Indonesia-Investments reported on January 5.

In this new context, local alcoholic beverage producers need to alter their strategy in order to boost sales or, at least, curtail the decline. London-based Diageo plc, a British multinational alcoholic beverages firm, introduced alcohol-free Guinness to Indonesia (and the company is planning to construct a factory on the island of Bali). Although the company stated it had already been planning to introduce its Guinness Zero to the Indonesian market before the mini-market ban had been announced, the new beverage is the main strategy to boost the company's sales in Indonesia after implementation of the ban.

Diageo claims to control about 15 percent of Indonesia's beer market. Up to early 2015 Indonesia was ...More info on site

Barley news Argentina: New president removes quotas on wheat and maize export
Argentina’s new President Mauricio Macri has removed quotas on the export of wheat and maize. This move will add further competition to the world’s grain export market, just a few weeks after export taxes were abolished for these grains, HGCA reported on December 30.

In their latest forecasts, the USDA lifted their forecast for Argentina’s wheat exports by 1 mln tonnes to 6 mln tonnes for 2015/16. The removal of the export quotas could have implications on the USDA’s trade forecasts in their next supply and demand update on 12 January.

The removal of the quotas means that there is now no limit on the amount of wheat and maize that can be shipped from the country. The former President had introduced the quotas (applied on a discretional basis) as a means to ensure domestic food needs. The impact of the use of quotas meant that Argentine farmers shifted from producing wheat and maize in favour of soya beans (which weren’t subject to quotas).

An immediate implication of the policy change could be a small shift from area planted to soya beans to area planted to maize for the late 2015/16 season, with planting of both crops underway at present. According to ...More info on site
