Brewery news Poland: Carlsberg’s sales in Poland fell in March and continued to drop in April
Carlsberg said its beer sales in Poland fell by 3-4% in March and have continued to drop in April, underlining the troubles facing brewers in a market which has been declining as consumers switch to wine and spirits, Reuters reported on April 28.

The Danish brewer's chief executive Cees't Hart said the trend has been exacerbated this year by an additional excise tax, inflation and since February the refugee crisis precipitated by Russia's invasion of Poland's neighbour Ukraine.

Almost 3 million Ukrainian refugees have entered Poland in less than two months, with the population of Warsaw alone growing by around 15% since Moscow began what it calls a "special military operation" in Ukraine on Feb. 24.

"A lot of big parties were cancelled, and the lives of many people were affected as they're taking care of the refugees," Hart said, adding: "Their minds are simply in a different place than celebrating life and having a beer together."

Polish consumer confidence has dropped sharply since the Ukraine crisis began, hitting 20-year lows in March and April.

Beer consumption in Poland totalled 102 litres per person last year, which is still by far the highest of any of Carlsberg's main markets. Carlsberg, which has three breweries in ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Asahi shares surge after announcement of first price increases in 14 years
Shares in Asahi Group Holdings surged on April 27 after the Japanese beermaker announced its first price increases for canned beer in 14 years and a range of other price hikes to cope with rising costs, Reuters reported.

Retail prices on 162 items, mostly beer products, will rise between 6% and 10% from Oct. 1, reflecting increasing costs for materials, energy and transportation, it said on April 26 after the market closed.

After decades of deflation in Japan, consumer price pressures have mounted as the cost of fuel and other commodities soar in the wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine and due to logistical snags caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Asahi's stock climbed 4.3%, outperforming a 1.2% drop in the benchmark Nikkei index.

Rivals Kirin Holdings Co and Sapporo Holdings Ltd said on April 27 they are also considering price increases but have not made a decision yet.

A Suntory Holdings Ltd spokesperson said the company had no comment, noting the company's last price changes for its beer and wine products were in October 2020.

Asahi is Japan's biggest beer maker, commanding nearly 40% of the market.

Brewery news USA & Ukraine: AB InBev to brew Ukraine’s most popular beer brand in the US
Anheuser-Busch is bringing Ukraine's most popular beer brand to the United States with proceeds benefiting humanitarian relief in the war-torn country, CNN reported on April 27.

Beginning in May, Chernigivske will brewed at Anheuser-Busch's Newark, New Jersey, factory and be sold on draught in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Houston, and Phoenix. Specific locations will be announced on a special website.

AB InBev said the initiative is "aimed at providing humanitarian relief for those impacted by the crisis in Ukraine." In addition to the beer's sales, the company will donate at least $5 million to humanitarian aid organizations, including a nonprofit called CARE Ukraine Crisis Fund.

Chernigivske's brand celebrates Ukraine's history, culture, and people, according to a description, and has "subtly fruity notes" and a "moderately bitter finish." The pale golden lager, which is part of AB InBev's portfolio, is named after the hard hit Ukrainian city of Chernihiv and has been brewed there since 1988.

The brewer has recently brought the beer to other countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, France and the Netherlands. The initiative is part of broader efforts to support Ukraine, which including donating emergency drinking water and essential supplies to refugee relief areas.

Brewery news Russia: Irish pubs in Russia run out of Guinness
Many Irish pubs in Russia has reportedly run out of Guinness as exports to the country were halted during the Ukraine invasion, The Irish Sun reported on April 29.

Diageo stopped shipping Guinness to both Russia and Ukraine shortly after the Russian invasion.

And stock in both countries is running extremely low, with reports that Irish pubs in Russia have completely run out of the stout.

Diageo have paused the export of products to Ukraine and Russia and are supporting humanitarian efforts, according to the Irish Independent.

Diageo’s business in Russia contributed to less than 1 per cent of sales and operating profit in the first half of this year.

The alcohol giant has under 300 employees in Russia and only a handful in Ukraine.

Several pubs in Moscow have reported that stocks of Guinness and Kilkenny have disappeared completely.

Oleg, a barman at Harat’s Pub in Moscow, told the Irish Independent that his premises has run out of Guinness.

He said: “Our last barrels of Guinness and Kilkenny have finished sadly but we have plenty of other Western beers and Russian beer in stock."

He added that there is discussion about brewing Russian-made Guinness, but it has not come to any fruition yet.

Hops news Australia: Hop Products Australia completes its 2022 hop harvest
Hop Products Australia (HPA) has completed its 2022 hop harvest and its crop report highlights the positive impact the hop grower’s A$35 mln expansion project has had on both the quantity and quality of its hops, The Shout reported on April 28.

The project, which started back in 2019, has seen the planting of 300 new hectares of Galaxy, Vic Secret and HPA’s newest proprietary hop Eclipse, as well as the construction of a new processing facility. In addition the facility now houses two additional picking machines, 12 kiln floors, one conditioning floor and one bale press, which has effectively boosted HPA’s total processing capacity by 50 per cent.

This year’s increased harvest saw HPA pick 810 hectares across three farms, producing 1656 metric tonnes of hops. This resulted in a 135 hectare (20.1 per cent) net increase and a 130 metric tonne (8.4 per cent) net increase year-on-year across HPA’s six proprietary hops – Eclipse, Ella, Enigma, Galaxy, Topaz and Vic Secret, as well as Cascade.

Head of Sales & Marketing Owen Johnston said: “HPA successfully executed a strategy to increase the production volume and brewing quality of our most in-demand Aussie hops.”

Whisky news India: Pernod Ricard urges India on to drop high tax on imported liquor
French spirits giant Pernod Ricard urged India on April 28 to drop its high tax on imported liquor, saying the tariff puts many of its drinks out of reach of consumers, the Yahoo News Singapore reported.

The 150% tax on imported liquor has long been a sore point for the industry, and poses a "large challenge" for Pernod Ricard, South Asia CEO Thibault Cuny told Reuters in an interview.

"We are in favour of free trade ... 150% in India is far beyond many other markets. It creates unaffordability of certain type of products," Cuny said at Pernod's office on the outskirts of New Delhi.

Asked if the duty should be ditched, Cuny said: "Yes, yes, we should go after zero ... the ultimate objective should be a 0%."

Industry sources say India has kept taxes high on imported liquor as it helps the government generate revenue from alcohol sales and keep consumption in check.

India's $20 billion alcohol market is set to grow by 7% each year, with whiskey and spirits among favourites, IWSR Drinks Market Analysis says, making the country of 1.4 billion people a key growth market for the likes of Pernod and Diageo.

Pernod is the world's second-biggest spirits group and owns ...More info on site
