Brewery news Spain: Mahou San Miguel acquires Spanish beer brand Brutus
Mahou San Miguel continues to grow in the craft beer sector with the acquisition of a 70% stake in Spanish beer brand Brutus, FoodBev reported on July 2.

Founded in 2015 in Barcelona, Brutus produces lager that is available in more than 350 points of sale. Mahou San Miguel said Brutus is a “modern and cosmopolitan” brand that has a “premium positioning”.

Brutus co-founder Jordi Calvet will lead the brand’s domestic and international strategy going forward, retaining creative and commercial independence.

Post-acquisition, the 5% ABV Brutus lager will be manufactured at Mahou San Miguel’s microbrewery in Alovera, Spain.

Peio Arbeloa, managing director of Mahou San Miguel Spain, said: “We believe that Brutus is the ideal brand to allow us to continue to grow among a significant consumer segment who demand different brands.

“This beer is a breath of fresh air for the category, with a unique personality that perfectly complements our portfolio and that will help us a lot in our premiumisation strategy”.

The announcement comes months after Mahou San Miguel bought a majority stake in US craft beer producer Avery Brewing.

Mahou San Miguel said the agreement fits within its vision to continue exploring international opportunities with partners who provide their knowledge of local consumers and ...More info on site

Brewery news USA & Mexico: Constellation Brands ‘always ready if Trump levies tariffs on Mexican beer’ - CEO
President Donald Trump threatened to slap tariffs on all Mexican imports at the end of May. He later backed down from the threat after signing a trade deal with the country.

But Constellation Brands CEO Bill Newlands was quoted as saying on CNBC on June 28 that the brewer of Corona and Modelo would be ready if the tariffs did end up happening.

“If, in fact, something were to happen, we’d always be ready,” he said on CNBC’s “Power Lunch. “We’d mitigate it to some degree.”

Investors were concerned about Constellation’s profit if Trump moved forward, sending shares down nearly 6% the trading session after Trump announced the 5% tariff proposal. Analysts at Morgan Stanley and BMO Capital Markets estimated that the company imports at least three-quarters of its beer from Mexico.

And Constellation’s Mexican beers are among the top performers in its portfolio. The brewer attributed the 7% sales growth of its beer segment during its fiscal-first quarter in part to the success of Modelo Especial. While U.S. consumption of beer has declined in recent years, Mexican imported beers outperformed the rest of the industry in 2018, according to industry research firm IWSR.

Newlands said that he believes that the Mexican tariffs are no ...More info on site

Brewery news Hong Kong: High rents and competition make brewers pursue export markets
Stressed by high rents and a highly competitive domestic market, Hong Kong’s leading local brewers are now aggressively pursuing export markets around Asia, and in some cases to Europe and the US, The South China Morning Post reported on June 30.

Patrick Gatherer, general manager of The Globe, one of Hong Kong’s best known bars for promoting craft beer, said local brewers have developed a level of reliability and quality suitable for bigger business aims.

“Some of them are breaking away from the pack,” said Gatherer.

Exact numbers on the nascent Hong Kong industry are hard to come by. The Hong Kong Craft Brew Association does not keep exact tallies and most brewers are reluctant to give production and sales figures.

There are as many as 35 brands and 18 breweries in Hong Kong. These start-up brewers are often former bankers, lawyers or other professionals who have turned passion projects into successful businesses.

Ian Jebbit, founder of Gweilo beer, now recognised as Hong Kong’s biggest local brewery, said he started exporting about a year ago. Jebbit, a former intellectual property lawyer in Hong Kong with DLA Piper, is determined to make Gweilo Beer a household name. “This is what I wanted from the outset. I ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Beer drinking not dead – Constellation Brands CEO
Long live the iced cold cerveza.

“Beer [drinking] is not dead,” said Constellation Brands CEO Bill Newlands in an interview with Yahoo Finance.

Newlands — who leads the maker of the well-known high-end suds Corona and Modelo and a sizable top-shelf wine portfolio — certainly has data on his side to prove 21-year-olds drinking hard seltzer and canned rosé haven’t derailed the beer industry.

That is provided the beer is on the premium side of the equation and plays into some form of health and wellness trend.

Constellation Brands is fresh off reporting its first fiscal quarter sales and operating profit in its beer business rose 7.4% and 11.7%, respectively. The company said shipment volume growth was above its expectations in the quarter, fueled by interest in premium options such as Modelo and new lower carb Corona Premier.

Meanwhile, the company was successful in passing through higher prices to offset its increased costs. The beer segment’s performance was far away better than Constellation Brands’ wine and spirit portfolio.

The stock popped 5% on June 28 in response to the better-than-expected quarter and outlook.

According to Newlands, Constellation Brands is just out-working rivals such as Anheuser-Busch, Boston Beer, and Molson Coors to win with fickle consumers.

Brewery news Ireland: Diageo working on non-alcoholic version of Guinness
Diageo’s global head of innovation, Michael Ward, has admitted that the company has been working on a non-alcoholic version of Guinness, although he said that developing such a product posed "a lot of challenges to work through", CampaignLive reported on June 2.

"You would certainly expect that we would," Ward said, after being put on the spot over the question. "[But] it needs to be a no-compromise proposition." He was at pains to state the difficulty of achieving acceptable quality in no- or low-alcoholic formulations.

Ward was speaking at a media event focusing on Diageo’s ongoing innovation across beer and spirits that took place on June 2.

The company is determined not to rush new products, he said. For example, it has not expanded the scope of its early 2018 test launch of a 0.5% ABV lager under the Guinness brand, called Pure Brew, in 250 pubs in Ireland.

"There are many ways of reducing alcohol," Luca Lupini, global head of research and development, said. "In Pure Brew, we ferment it right down to 0.5%. There's no post-processing. We don't heat it up, we don't evaporate it, we don't put it through a kit. And what you end up with is a much truer ...More info on site

Brewery news South Korea: Hite Jinro’s new Terra beer sales surpass 100 mln bottles in just 100 days after launch
Hite Jinro said on July 2 that Terra's sales, which marks its 100th day since its launch, have surpassed 100 million bottles, the Korea IT Times reported.

Terra sales reached 3.34 million boxes (330 ml) and 101.39 million bottles as of June 29 . This is 11.6 bottles sold per second, and 2.4 bottles per Korean adult (20 years of age or older, based on 42.04 million people) were consumed.

Hite Jinro sold more than 1 million boxes of Terra in 39 days, recording the fastest sales among beer brands in the early stages of its launch. It has since accelerated, selling 2 million boxes in 72 days and 3 million boxes in 97 days, which is about 1.4 times faster than the sales speed of 1 million boxes.

What's notable is that the launch of Terra has not resulted in the erosion of existing beer brands. Along with Terra, the existing brands such as Hite and Max synergized, up about 5 percent year-on-year in June this year, the company said.

Hite Jinro expects the figure, which had been on a steady decline since 2015, to shift upward this year, with the green light for its turnarounds in the beer sector.
