Brewery news Canada: Alcohol consumption higher than before Covid-19 hit
Canadian alcohol consumption is higher now than before COVID-19 hit: the per capita value of alcohol sold between March and November 2020 was 13 per cent greater than the average value of alcohol sold during the same time period between March and November 2017-2019, well before the pandemic, CBC reported on January 22.

That's despite 70 per cent of Canadians saying their alcohol drinking stayed pretty much the same during the pandemic, according to recent surveillance surveys from "Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention in Canada," a journal of the Health Agency of Canada.

And while it looks as though Canadians are drinking more alcohol, they may also be drinking more no- and low-alcohol beverages: restaurants are serving mocktails, brewers are creating sparkling hop waters (a.k.a. no-alcohol beer/barley/hop flavoured drinks), and you can find a dozen relatively new and interesting Canadian-made alcohol-free spirits, wine and beer online.

One question is whether drinking mocktails and more alcohol-free beer is a trend or a fad? It's a question Bob Huitema, president of Toronto-based DistillX Beverages, which makes Sobrii non-alcoholic spirits, believes he can answer.

Huitema says Sobrii sales have increased this year over last year. That is the result of health-conscious consumers, brand awareness (including ...More info on site

Brewery news Ireland: Popularity of non-alcoholic beer set to continue in 2022
Non-alcoholic beer has become increasingly popular in Ireland in recent years, and this trend is set to continue in 2022, according to Drinks Ireland|Beer, which represents Irish beer makers.

The array of non-alcoholic beers now available offer consumers great tasting alternatives if they’re driving, cutting back or simply looking to try something new, the group said.

While popular all year round, non-alcoholic beers are particularly in-demand among beer lovers during Dry January.

The latest data from Drinks Ireland|Beer estimates that non-alcoholic beer sales in Ireland grew by 129% between 2017 and 2020, from 1.79 million to 4.12 million litres.

Meanwhile, the market share grew by 175% during this time, from 0.4% in 2017 to 1.1% in 2020.

Drinks Ireland|Beer says that beer sales across the board were heavily impacted by COVID-19 and the closure of hospitality venues. While it anticipates that non-alcoholic beer sales dropped slightly in 2021, they remained strong. It expects that the category maintained its growing market share.

Jonathan McDade, director of Drinks Ireland|Beer commented,“There has never been more choice for beer drinkers in Ireland, with a range of new products from emerging and existing producers hitting the market in recent years.

"One major trend we’ve seen is the emergence of non-alcoholic beer, with ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: BrewDog founder admits buying Heineken shares despite publicly slating the Dutch giant
BrewDog co-founder James Watt has admitted he ploughed £500,000 into rivals Heineken - despite publicly slating the Dutch giant, The Scottish Sun reported on January 25.

The self-styled punk boss fostered an anti-corporate reputation as he built his business by slamming “bland industrial beers” made by huge booze companies.

James and business partner Martin Dickie filmed themselves blowing up bottles of Heineken.

And when the company bought into other craft firms, including Lagunitas and Beavertown, they booted the beers out of BrewDog bars.

But behind the scenes, James was secretly trying to persuade them to set up a distribution deal with his craft brewery, based in Ellon, Aberdeenshire.

He snapped up at least half a million pounds worth of shares in what he claims was a goodwill gesture before selling them soon afterwards.

James, 33, confessed: “Would I do it again? Probably not.”

The 2017 transaction was exposed in explosive BBC documentary The Truth About BrewDog.

BarleyBarley News Barley

Barley news Canada: Barley supply projected sharply down in 2021-22
For 2021-22, Canadian barley supply is projected at 7.81 million tonnes (Mt), down sharply from 2020-21 and a record low level. This is primarily due to production issues during the 2021 growing season in Canada’s Prairie provinces, as well as record low carry-in stocks. As a result of the tight supply, demand for both domestic feed consumption and exports will be sharply lower than last year. Carryout stocks are projected at 0.3 Mt, a record low level, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada said in its January report.

The Lethbridge feed barley price for 2021-22 is forecast to hit a new high of C$420/t, up sharply from the previous record of C$294/t set in 2020-21 and well above the three- and five-year averages. The 2021-22 prices are supported by tight domestic barley supplies, the decline in the availability of other domestic feed grain substitutes, robust demand and stronger prices of other grains.

Worldwide, the 2021-22 barley situation includes lower production, demand, ending stocks and stocks-to-use ratio, compared to 2020-21.

For 2022-23, Canadian barley supply is projected to increase to a comfortable level, mainly reflecting the expected recovery in production on the Prairies. This is based on the assumption of a return to normal weather conditions and ...More info on site

Barley news EU: Winter crop in most parts of Europe benefit from warmer temperatures and increased rain
Warmer temperatures and increased rain has benefited winter crops in most parts of Europe, though a lack of hardiness due to mild conditions could leave some grain crops exposed to frost, the EU’s crop monitoring service MARS said on January 24.

Grain crops such as barley and wheat in northern and central-eastern parts of Europe have almost fully hardened by now, but areas around the Black Sea have limited snow cover, and a cold snap would lead to frost damage, especially in late-sown fields, MARS said.

However, its simulations suggested that no frost had occurred so far in the EU, it added.

The favorable conditions has led to a significant increase in rapeseed sowing area of 12.1% in France and 8.7% in Germany, and has allowed some crops that were lagging behind to partially catch up, the monitor said.

The Mediterranean region from southern Spain to northern Italy has had a rain deficit, but there is no significant impact on winter crops so far, MARS said.

Persistent drought conditions in Morocco have negatively impacted the growth and development of winter crops, and rain is “imminently needed” to sustain adequate crop growth in western and central Algeria, the monitor said.

MARS does not give area estimates but ...More info on site
