Brewery news Australia: Craft beer drinkers eager to try new brews
Australian craft beer consumers now purchase an equal number of previously untried beers as old favourites, according to the 2018 Australian Craft Beer Survey, showing how quickly the sector has evolved. And consumers’ continuous thirst for something new has implications across the craft beer industry: from the diversity of styles to the preferred packaging sizes, the Beverage Daily reported on October 1. “On average, five out of every ten beers purchased by consumers are for previously untried beers,” reveals the survey, which is the largest publicly available style of Australian craft drinking trends.

“This is quite staggering and speaks volumes as to why many breweries have an extensive seasonal and limited release program. Considering the Australian beer landscape prior to 2012 with little access to beers outside of mainstream lines, it is amazing how quickly consumer habits have evolved.”

More than 18,000 craft beer drinkers took part in the survey which is run every year by online beer supermarket Beer Cartel.

“Craft beer is the only segment of the Australian beer market which is in continuous growth, with overall consumption of beer and alcohol in decline. The data that follows provides an extremely accurate picture ...More info on site

Brewery news Australia: Lion to consider job redundancies at two of its nine breweries
Following Lion’s announcement on October 3 that it will consider job redundancies and shift reductions at two of its nine breweries, it is clear that the decline in mainstream beer consumption is hitting big business hard, the Australian Brews News reported.

The decision has come after “a range of cost pressures” that Lion has claimed are threatening the company’s ability to remain competitive.

Lion said that “a reduction in volume” within its brewery network and the “continued decline in the mainstream beer market” are the main reasons behind the restructure.

Lion’s proposed changes will affect employees at both its Milton production brewery in Queensland and West End Brewery in South Australia. The current proposal will reduce the number of shifts at both breweries, resulting in 36 full-time roles being made redundant at West End and 25 at Milton.

Lion said that while “the XXXX trademark and XXXX Gold in particular, have outperformed the classic mainstream beer category for each of the last five years both nationally and in Queensland… with people continuing to increase the number of different beers in their repertoire, the classic category as a whole has been under pressure”.

“Likewise, West End remains South Australia’s most popular beer, and will continue to ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Heineken’s Lagunitas Brewing announces job cuts
Lagunitas Brewing, one of the flag bearers of the US craft beer industry, is laying off 12% of its staff as the U.S. craft beer sector continues to soften, The Fortune reported on October 3.

The company, which was acquired by Heineken 17 months ago, says the action will affect all departments and all locations, including its Petaluma, California headquarters, Chicago production plant, and Seattle Taproon. (The majority of the layoffs, more than 100, will take place in Petaluma.)

“The craft beer market is rapidly evolving and, in many ways, more challenging. More breweries, more choices … very much like the late ‘90s when the craft beer segment had similar pressure,” CEO Maria Stipp told Santa Rosa’s Press Democrat.

The layoffs come just two months after Stipp announced Lagunitas was just one of five U.S. craft beer brands gaining dollar share this year. (Lagunitas, technically, is no longer considered a craft brewer by the Brewer’s Association because of its macro brewery owners.) She noted that, as of July 14, Lagunitas ranked fourth in dollar share (up 4%) and sixth in volume (up 5%) in the industry.

The company, founded by Tony Magee in 1993 and best known for its hoppy IPAs and full-flavored other ...More info on site

Hops news Japan: Major brewers offering financial and technological support to boost domestic hops production
Major Japanese brewers are offering financial and technological support to domestic hop farmers so they can increase production of hops, a primary beer ingredient that determines flavor and bitterness, The Japan News reported on September 29.

With imported hops accounting for about 90 percent of hops used in beer production in Japan, the brewers aim to make greater use of domestically grown fresh hops that can be used for their products soon after harvesting.

Workers were cutting hop plants off from 5-meter-tall trellises in late August at a farm in Tono in Iwate Prefecture, the country’s leading hop-producing prefecture.

At a processing facility, hop flowers are separated from vines and dried. They are then shipped to beer makers.

According to data from Japan’s agriculture ministry, annual domestic production of hops topped 2,000 tons in the 1970s. But the amount has plunged to some 270 tons, chiefly due to a drop in the number of hop farmers stemming from hard work and a lack of successors.

Against this background, major brewer Kirin Co. and Norinchukin Bank, the central financial institution for agricultural, forestry and fishery cooperatives across the country, announced in August investment totaling ¥250 million in Beer Experience, a hop producer based in Tono.

Kirin aims ...More info on site
