News Articles

Brewery news USA: Alcohol consumption sees largest volume gain in nearly 20 years
In 2020, alcohol consumption in the US saw the largest volume gain in nearly 20 years, Drinks International reported on June 16.

According to new findings from IWSR Drinks Market Analysis, total alcohol beverages consumption increased by 2% in 2020, the largest volume gain since 2002.

The increases were driven by consumer demand for flavoured and better-for-you options, convenience, and the increase in at-home drinking occasions.

“A key driver of US beverage alcohol consumption is flavour,” said Brand Rand, IWSR’s chief operating officer of the Americas.

“Flavoured subcategories – from beer to vodka to US whiskey – are significantly outperforming traditional non-flavoured sub-categories. Flavour is also the top consumer driver of the fast-growing ready-to-drink category, and that’s likely creating a halo effect on total alcohol as well.”

The year-to-date 2021 performance is still higher than 2019 and expected to end at 3.8% growth in volume and a 5.5% increase in value.

As normal service resumes over the next five years, this growth rate is forecasted to slow with 0.5% volume growth and 2.8% value CAGR, 2020-2025.

The spirits category posted a 4.6% volume growth, the largest increase since 1990.

Within the category, agave spirits grew by 15.9% volume, overtaking rum to be the third-largest spirits category in the ...More info on site

Barley news Canada: Rains halt Canada’s barley market bull trend
The bull trend of Canada's barley market in 2020/21 has halted, when beneficial and partly torrential rains saved the crops, at least temporarily, in the dry Prairies, H. M. Gauger GmbH reported earlier in June.

Prices of the central feed barley market Lethbridge came down from C$350 to C$310 per tonne for old crop. New crop is offered at C$275.

Domestic and export (China) demand had incited farmers to plant 3.2 mln ha of barley vs. 2.8 mln last year. Private forecasters expect a crop of 12.5 mln tonnes (last year 10.7 mln). Exports should reach 4.2 mln vs. 3.6 mln tonnes in the present campaign. Domestic feed demand is seen at 6.9 vs. 6.3 mln tonnes.

U.S. Yellow Corn used to compete with Canadian barley in the stock feed centres of Alberta, but is not now and will hardly be competitive in the new crop year.

Brewery news USA, AK: Alaska’s brewing industry continues to grow
On a warm Anchorage day, the garage doors are open at the Midnight Sun Brewing Company. Inside, cans of a Belgian-style tripel make their way down a conveyor belt, the Alaska Public Media News reported on June 17.

The brewing industry is growing, despite being hit with enormous pandemic challenges. New breweries have been popping up in Alaska for years, and, despite earlier predictions that growth would plateau, it hasn’t let up yet.

Midnight Sun is one of the oldest breweries in the state, open since 1995. The craft beer industry was a lot different back then.

“It wasn’t a ton of variety, it was a small following of people, and it was a very rugged and disorganized kind of situation,” said company president Lee Ellis. Ellis started working at Midnight Sun in 2009. He also heads up the Brewer’s Guild of Alaska.

He describes a craft beer boom in the state in the early to mid-1990s, but said breweries were struggling to stay afloat back then.

“Everything was kind of pieced together,” said Ellis. “We used a lot of dairy equipment. You know, the Craft Brewers Conference, which is a national conference we do every year, there would be less than ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, NC: Cotton House Craft Brewers to open Triangle Beer Co. in Cary
Cotton House Craft Brewers will be opening a second taproom in Cary, WRAL.com reported on June 17.

The location will be called Triangle Beer Co. and located at 320 E. Durham Road, in the old home of Jordan Lake Brewing. The taproom will have 16 taps and new exclusive brews. It will also be home to Craft Concepts, a permanent mobile kitchen with on-site dining and catering services.

A grand opening celebration is planned June 26 starting at noon and will include a vendor market and live music.

Cotton House Craft Brewers also operates the Cotton House taproom in the historic Pasmore House in downtown Cary. It opened in 2019.

Triangle Beer Co. will also be the new name of the brand's beer, which will be served at both taproom locations.

“A second location has been a long time coming,” Cotton House Craft Brewers owner Brent Webb, said. “We’re thrilled to now have a local production facility that doubles as a second taproom, and the kitchen is an addition we’ve looked forward to ever since we started out. We love the Cary community, and we’re excited to offer a new place for people to come hang out and enjoy great beer and locally sourced food.”

Brewery news USA, TX: Three Empires Brewing Co. coming to Frisco this fall
Three Empires Brewing Co. is projected to open this fall at the Main Street Food Hall, 9145 John W. Elliott Drive, Frisco. Family-owned by David and Mandalyn Wible, the couple said they will open their brick-and-mortar brewery inside a 280 square-foot space, the Community Impact Newspaper reported on June 17.

The brewery will have indoor seating and a large, outside patio and beer garden behind the building, Mandalyn said. Three Empires Brewing Co. comes following Frisco City Council's approval of a zoning ordinance amendment in an April 2020 meeting, allowing breweries, distilleries and wineries to operate in certain areas.

Geared to be a family-friendly space, David and Mandalyn said they look forward to teaming up with the neighboring restaurants.

“It's going to be in a food hall where you can come, hang out, have a couple beers with your friends and family and have a few bites,” Mandalyn said.

Three Empires Brewing Co. was inspired from when the family lived in Minneapolis for a few years. David and Mandalyn immersed themselves in the local craft beer scene, and decided they wanted to try brewing themselves.

Since then, they’ve produced several different kinds of beers, including the Frisco Blonde that’s inspired by Deep Ellum Brewing Co.’s ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, NC: Grove Cartel Brewing Company coming to a historic building in China Grove
There’s something new brewing in downtown China Grove, the Salisbury Post reported on June 17.

Jason Overcash and Jonathan Woodward, both residents of the southern Rowan County town, are working to bring a brewery and restaurant to a historic building at 211 N. Main St.

Called Grove Cartel Brewing Company, the concept will feature a brewery and taproom on the first floor, a steakhouse-style restaurant on the second and a rooftop patio where drinkers and diners can watch the sunset from one of the tallest points in downtown.

“I’m pumped because I want this to be something for the people of China Grove to come here, gather, hang out with friends and get a great meal,” said Overcash, a proud South Rowan High School graduate. “It keeps China Grove here. It keeps us from having to travel to somewhere else.”

The name of the brewery and restaurant is inspired by Overcash’s decades-long career in law enforcement. He worked as an officer and investigator for both the Concord Police Department and the China Grove Police Department.

“Being involved in narcotics investigations for the majority of my career, the operations and how (cartels) worked always thrilled me,” Overcash said. “My main goal for doing this ...More info on site

Brewery news Australia: Zero alcohol beer segment growing faster than any other category
The chief executive of Australia’s biggest beer business says the zero alcohol beer segment is growing faster than any other category and easily outstripping the 8 to 9 per cent growth of craft beers, as the company tries to offset a flat mainstream beer market, The Australian Financial Review reported on June 16.

Robert Iervasi, the group chief executive of Asahi Beverages, which has owned the Carlton & United Breweries beer business for a year after a A$16 billion buyout, also says it is unlikely the overall beer market in Australia will make a full recovery until next year after the hit to hospitality venues in the pandemic.

He said the zero alcohol beer category is forecast to grow at above 30 per cent annually from a low base, driven by the increasing focus on health and wellbeing by many people.

The company’s brands in this segment, led by Carlton Zero and Great Northern Zero, are important growth drivers for the overall Asahi business in Australia which is projected to generate annual revenues of close to A$4.2 billion in 2021. It also includes soft drink brands such as Schweppes and Pepsi Max.

Mr Iervasi terms the zero alcohol segment as “beyond beer”.

Brewery news South Korea: Increased home consumption of alcohol doesn’t stop downward slope for imported beers
South Korea consumers are drinking more alcohol alone at home amid COVID-19, a trend which has driven fruit wine imports up but not managed to stop a downward slope for imported beers, FoodNavigator-Asia.com reported on June 15.

The new trend is dubbed ‘homsul’, which refers to drinking alcohol at home, usually alone, which has unsurprisingly gained a lot of traction during COVID-19 due to lockdowns and social distancing rules, as well as an increasing number of younger South Koreans living independently.

According to recent data from the South Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS), this trend has resulted in a shift in consumption occasions for alcohol, particularly for fruit wines and is something that the ministry is monitoring closely.

“As homsul is becoming a trend in the community, it can be seen that the consumption of [liquors such as] fruit wines is changing from a drink to be enjoyed on special days, to a drink to be enjoyed at home alone or sometimes with family,” said MFDA via a formal statement.

“Over 69,000 tons of fruit wine were imported in 2020, a 30.4% increase compared to the previous year (over 53,000 tons), and unlike the trend in previous years where fruit wine ...More info on site

Brewery news Russia: AB InBev Efes expects double-digit growth in its non-alcoholic local beer sales
AB InBev Efes, a Russia-based unit of the world’s largest brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev, expects double-digit growth in its non-alcoholic local beer sales in the next few years, after COVID-19 accelerated a shift towards healthier lifestyles, Reuters reported on June 16.

While many beer lovers across the globe shifted to at-home consumption during the pandemic, non-alcoholic beer sales in Russia – the world’s sixth-largest beer market – grew 13% year-on-year, while the overall beer market rose 4%, according to AB InBev Efes.

The company’s own sales of non-alcoholic beer in Russia jumped by 20% last year, Dmitry Shpakov, chief executive officer of AB InBev Efes, told Reuters.

“Healthy lifestyles, which became popular long before the pandemic, gained more momentum last year and contributed to increasing consumer interest in non-alcoholic beer, delivering double-digit growth,” Shpakov said.

AB InBev Efes, which operates in Russia and Ukraine and offers BUD, Stella Artois and Spaten among other brands, expects this trend to continue over the next few years, Shpakov said.

“The (non-alcoholic beer) industry has more than doubled over the last four to five years. And the further ahead we look, the more non-alcoholic beer becomes not a substitute for alcoholic beer, but a category in its own right.”

Brewery news Japan: Brewers double down on canned beers
Japan’s social media has been abuzz recently over Asahi Breweries’ new canned offering that features a removable top, allowing them to be chugged down like an ice-cold mug of draft beer, known as nama in Japanese, the Japan Times reported on June 17.

Beer makers suffering from a plunge in consumption at restaurants and bars during the pandemic are zeroing in on canned beer, backed by tax cuts for regular beer and a surge in household alcohol consumption. The situation is giving an edge to such products as Asahi’s new Super Dry.

The beer sold out within days of being released in convenience stores and then in supermarkets. Fans will have to wait until mid-June for more, said Asahi.

“We want to enhance the home drinking experience by offering customers a product that reminds them of the joy of drinking a freshly poured nama beer with a creamy head,” said Kristin Chiu, spokesperson for Asahi Group Holdings. While the release of the product couldn’t have been better timed, it was actually four years in the making, she said.

The can’s design features an interior coating with fine protrusions that generate delicate bubbles and a smoother head, as well as a top that can be ...More info on site
