Brewery news Canada: Number of breweries reaches all-time high of 995 last year
Brewery trade organization Beer Canada has announced the release of Industry Trends 2018, its latest annual update that looks at the domestic and international beer market and details growth in the number of breweries, changes in sales, trends in packaging, and more.

2018 proved to be another exciting and challenging year in the Canadian beer industry, the association said. The number of brewing facilities increased by 21.8% from 817 in 2017 to an all-time high of 995. Most of Canada’s breweries are small, local operations with 93% producing less than 15,000 hectolitres (hl) of beer in 2018. Nationally, from 2017 to 2018 the number of brewing facilities per 100,000 drinking age adults increased by 20.9% from 2.8 to 3.4. Provincially, New Brunswick led the way with 8.0 breweries per 100,000 drinking age adults, followed by Nova Scotia with 7.7 and PEI with 7.4, while Manitoba at 1.1 had the lowest rate.

Overall, although the number of breweries in Canada is growing, domestic beer production and sales are not keeping pace. In 2018, domestic production decreased by 3.4% to 21.65 million hl and domestic sales rose modestly by 0.3%. From 2017 to 2018 import sales declined by 3.4%. In total, national beer ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Sales of non-alcoholic beer, wine, spirits at record high in the UK
Sales of non-alcoholic beer, wine and spirits are at a record high in the UK with increasing numbers of London producers looking to make the most of the £100 million industry, the Evening Standard reported on May 14.

Figures from market researchers Nielsen indicate sales of some categories are up by over a third. Britons spent a record £57 million in the 12 months to April on low or non-alcoholic beers — an increase of 39 per cent and the equivalent of 12.5 million pints consumed.

They also spent £48 million on low or no-alcohol wines over the same period. Non-alcoholic spirits, a market only three years old, is now worth £5 million.

Gemma Cooper, from Nielsen, said the demand for non- and low-alcohol drinks was not exclusively driven by the “health conscious”, adding there was “across-the-board” interest from all consumers who increasingly want ways to “cut down”.

She said: “Our data shows that just over one in 10 shoppers say they are looking to cut down their alcohol consumption. And while most are doing this by simply drinking less, some are turning to low or no-alcohol products.”

She added that having a wide selection of non-alcoholic cocktails in venues such as the American Bar ...More info on site

Brewery news Cambodia: Craft beer gradually increasing its market presence
Craft beer can be a hard sell. How do you convince people used to paying US$1 or less for a pint of beer to fork out three or four times as much for something new and different?

In Cambodia, craft beer breweries are gradually winning people over. Craft beer first took hold as tourists and expats wanted similar beers to those available back home. Now, Cambodians are also ordering craft beers as new offerings come onto the market, ASEAN TODAY reported on May 13.

That market is growing rapidly. New companies are selling new beers to a thirsty new clientele. Between 2014 and 2018, the number of breweries rose from two to nine. There are now 12 brewpubs or microbreweries in Cambodia.

Craft beer companies in Cambodia aim to provide something different. They must stand out if they are to convince drinkers to break long-established habits. Commercial breweries in Cambodia have been operating since the 1960s. That gave them a significant head start.

Some craft beer companies draw inspiration from Germany. Riel was founded by Americans and Australians missing the taste of craft beer from home. Himawari, located in a 5-star hotel, was founded by a Singaporean. At Five Men Fresh Beer, you can ...More info on site
