Brewery news USA: Boston Beer Company and Dogfish Head Brewery sign $300 mln merger agreement
Eight years ago, Dogfish Head and Boston Beer Company teamed up to brew a collaboration beer for the annual SAVOR craft beer and food pairing experience.

On May 9, the two companies announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement valued at about $300 million, Brewbound reported.

The deal is expected to close in the second quarter.

As part of the transaction, Dogfish Head co-founders Sam and Mariah Calagione will receive about 406,000 shares of Boston Beer stock, valued at $314.60 per share, making them the largest non-institutional shareholders in the company, behind Boston Beer founder Jim Koch.

Meanwhile, existing Dogfish Head shareholders will receive $173 million in cash, and Sam Calagione will obtain a seat on Boston Beer’s board of directors starting in 2020.

The merger comes nearly four years after Dogfish Head sold a 15 percent stake to LNK Partners, a New York-based private equity firm.

As a result of the merger, LNK will exit its investment in the Delaware-based craft brewery.

According to a press release, Boston Beer expects to fund the cash component of the transaction through a combination of cash on hand and its available credit line.

The merger brings together the Brewers Association’s second-largest craft beer maker, Boston Beer, with the 13th ...More info on site

Brewery news Canada: Wild Rose Brewery agrees to be acquired by Sleeman Breweries
Alberta’s Wild Rose Brewery Ltd. (“Wild Rose”) officially announced on May 10 that it has been acquired by Sleeman Breweries Ltd. (“Sleeman”). The sale was approved on May 9 by Wild Rose shareholders and marks the beginning of a partnership between the two organizations which will allow both parties to strategically leverage their strengths and complementary portfolios as they continue to accelerate their growth in Alberta. The deal will be finalized on May 31, 2019.

Since it was established by two local entrepreneurs in 1996, Wild Rose has made a name for itself brewing exciting beer. Over the years, the business has expanded operations from its humble beginnings in a garage to its current 40,000 square foot Calgary brewing facility. Wild Rose now produces a number of different brands and styles in bottles, cans and kegs available to beer lovers in pubs, restaurants and liquor outlets all across Alberta. In addition to the brewery, Wild Rose also operates a Taproom where consumers can experience its finely crafted beers, including signature crowd pleasers like Velvet Fog and Wraspberry Ale, while enjoying a variety of food offerings.

Brewery news Estonia: Craft brewer Tanker opens new production facility just outside of Tallinn
Tanker, one of Estonia's largest craft beer producers, have opened a new production plant in the town of Jüri just south of Tallinn, ERR.EE reported on May 8.

According to the company, the new plant increases their production capacity almost tenfold.

Tanker will also introduce a canning line and become the first Estonian craft beer producer to offer its drinks in cans as well as bottles.

According to CEO Jaanis Tammela, the new brewery was long overdue, as Tanker ran out of space soon after it started its business in 2014.

So far a unique addition on the Estonian craft beer scene is Tanker's new canning line, made by Cask Global Canning in Canada.

According to Tammela, cans have several advantages. "First of all, the beer is better preserved in cans because oxygen and UV light can't get to the product. Secondly, the use of cans significantly reduces the ecological footprint, as metal is almost 100 percent recyclable and significantly easier to transport compared to glass bottles. In a situation where more than half of the company's output is exported, the use of cans is the only conceivable solution," Tammela said.

The capacity of the new factory is about 440 hectolitres of canned ...More info on site

Brewery news Nigeria: Heineken Nigeria to raise prices to offset tax increase
Heineken NV’s Nigerian unit plans to raise prices this year to offset a sharp increase in taxes, Bloomberg reported on May 7.

Nigerian Breweries Plc expects excise duties to jump about 67 percent to 35 naira ($0.10) per liter in the second half of the year, as the government phases in tax increases on alcoholic beverages, Chairman Kolawole Jamodu said a statement handed to reporters.

“We need to increase prices to compensate for inflation pressure and the impacts of excise tax,” Managing Director Jordi Borrut Bel told reporters on May 7 in Lagos, the commercial capital.

The Lagos-based company signed an agreement with CrossBoundary Energy to supply 650 kilowatts of solar power to its plant in Ibadan, in the southwest of the country to replace more expensive diesel generators, Bel said. Solar power will also be installed at its Lagos brewery and other plants “if it’s successful at Ibadan”, he said.

The nation’s biggest brewer sources 57 percent of its raw materials locally and plans to increase that to 60 percent by 2020, Bel said.

BarleyBarley News Barley

Barley news Canada: Barley stocks decrease by 26.6% as of March 31
On March 31, 2019, stocks of wheat, barley, corn for grain, oats, dry peas and lentils were down in Canada compared with the same date in 2018. Conversely, stocks of canola and soybeans were up year over year. Lower stocks were generally a result of lower on-farm stocks, Statistics Canada reported.

Total barley stocks decreased from the same date in 2018, falling 26.6% to 2.5 million tonnes on March 31, a record low for this period. On-farm stocks fell 28.4% to 2.2 million tonnes, while commercial stocks decreased 10.0% to 306 000 tonnes.

Lower year-over-year inventories of barley combined with higher exports to decrease stocks. Low global stocks, strong world prices for feed barley, and low world supplies of malting barley likely drove exports higher (+10.3%) compared with March 31, 2018.

Whisky news UK: Diageo submits building application for reopening Port Ellen distillery
In October 2017, Diageo announced plans to reopen its distillery Port Ellen on Islay that has been closed since 1983. Now, with the submission of a detailed building application to the relevant administrative authorities of Argyll & Bute, they have taken an important step forward, Whisky.com reported on May 7.

The new Port Ellen Distillery aims to combine tradition and modernity in two ways:

Existing buildings, such as those with the old pagoda roof and the warehouses the sea side, will be restored and complemented by a completely new still house.

Second combination of traditional and modern is the way whisky will be produced. One pair of stills will be a copy of those of the old Port Ellen distillery to replicate the old style of the Port Ellen whisky, while a second pair of smaller stills will create an alternative character and will be used to experiment with modern styles, as Diageo explains.

Master Distiller Georgie Crawford, who was announced to be leader of the project Port Ellen Distillery, said: “This is another hugely significant milestone on our journey to bring Port Ellen Distillery back to life. This is no ordinary distillery project, we are bringing a true whisky legend back to life ...More info on site
