Brewery news The Czech Republic: Budejovicky Budvar’s production and exports reach record high in 2015
Czech state-owned brewery Budejovicky Budvar, which has been fighting a long legal battle with U.S. beer giant Anheuser-Busch over the use of the "Budweiser" brand, says its output and exports reached a record in 2015, WRAL.com reported on January 7.

Budejovicky Budvar NP said its exports rose 10.5 percent to 898,000 hectolitres (23.72 million gallons) of beer, the best result in the brewer's 120-year history.

Budvar exported to 73 countries last year, three more than the previous year. Overall output reached 1.6 million hectolitres (42.27 million gallons), up 10 percent from 2014.

Profit figures from the brewery are due in late April.

Both Budvar and Anheuser-Busch — which was taken over by Belgian brewer InBev in 2008 to form AB InBev — claim exclusive right to the Budweiser name.

Brewery news Australia: Craft beer industry showing no sign of slowing
Australia's beer tastes have been gradually shifting towards craft beers produced by small breweries, and with the industry showing no sign of slowing, the beer landscape is undergoing significant change, ABC Local reported on January 7.

Wander into any big city pub or bottle-o and you will notice the range of beer is no longer a line-up of the usual suspects.

Sometimes, the craft beer range is bigger than mainstream varieties.

It is a sign Australia's beer tastes are changing, and just as consumers have become more aware of where their fresh produce comes from, so has their interest in the origins of their beer increased.

"There is a keen interest in supporting local businesses and small industries to see it grow so we have something interesting and viable in Australia, and not just keep drinking the same beers over and over," Wollongong craft beer brewer Phil O'Shea said.

"A lot of craft beers produced are only produced once, so seeking them out is a fun and interesting thing to do."

According to a survey by mobile payment app Clipp, craft beer is a juggernaut for people in their 20s and 30s, but is not as popular among older drinkers.

Their data found craft beer sales accounted ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: UK beer giants under fire over planned price rises
The death of the pint could be a step closer after the UK breweries came under fire over planned New Year price rises, BT reported on January 7.

Two breweries - Molson Coors, makers of Carling, and Guinness giant Diageo - have revealed their intention to hike the price of a pint.

Leading industry figures have attacked the new plans.

“Grain and barley prices have halved since 2012, fuel is at its lowest price for years, meaning delivery costs must have been reduced,” Paul Wigham, chief executive of pub group All Out Bars, told The Publican’s Morning Advertiser.

“There’s no wage inflation. I don’t understand how prices can be going up.”

Tim Bird, who runs the Cheshire Cat Pub Company, warned in December that “savvy” customers were already questioning prices.

“If brewers put their prices up - outside a duty increase - then where I can, I will stop selling those brands and move to more competitive alternatives - and I would ask other businesses to do the same,” he said.

“These annual increases are becoming almost the norm.

“Every year, there seems to be a reason for not holding prices or dropping them.”

Defending their plans, Molson Coors said: “The increase is due to rising costs.”

Diageo, makers of ...More info on site

Brewery news Romania: Average alcohol beverages consumption estimated at 2.2 litres a month in 2014
A Romanian drinks an average of 2.2 litres of alcoholic beverages a month, especially beer and wine, according to data from the National Statistics Institute (INS), Romania-Insider.com reported on January 6.

In 2014, a Romanian drank an average of 4.8 litres of mineral water and other soft drinks per month, 1.1 litres of beer, 0.9 litres of wine, and 0.2 litres of plum brandy and natural spirits, reports local Agerpres.

When compared to 2011, the mineral water and other soft drinks consumption was 4% higher in 2014, the beer consumption increased by 5.8%, and wine consumption went up by 2.5%.

In 2014, the total consumption expenditure amounted to RON 1,637 (some EUR 368) per month/household, on average. About 7.7% of this sum was spent on alcohol and cigarettes while 40% was allocated for food and soft drinks.

Between 2011 and 2014, the food and soft drinks have held the highest share in the total consumption expenditure – 40%. However, the number decreased by 1.7 percentage points in 2014 compared to 2011.

Barley news USA: Malting barley growers still waiting for contract announcements from most US maltsters
With only Anheuser-Busch announcing malting barley contract figures for 2016 so far, that leaves those growers who normally contract with the other maltsters wondering when those contracts will be coming out and at what price they will be offered, Farm and Ranch Guide reported on January 6.

Busch has reduced the acres they are contracting, according to Randy Brag of Valley Grain Milling, and are offering contract prices in the range of $4.80 a bushel.

“That’s a decent number,” Brag said. “I am sure for those who haven’t contracted yet they are getting plenty of calls since producers need to start getting their finances lined up for the next year as far as what they are going to do.”

Part of the reason for the delay in releasing contracts is the fact the maltsters over-contracted acres in 2015 in response to the short crop they had in 2014. However, the 2015 crop turned out to be of good quality and high yielding in most areas, thus resulting in a large supply of high quality malting barley.

There also appears to be a fair amount of barley that is close to the edge of being malting barley quality that has been grown on an open ...More info on site
