Brewery news USA: Constellation Brands reports decreased Q4 earnings per share, net income
Constellation Brands, Inc. reported fourth quarter comparable basis earnings per share of $1.82 compared to $2.06, prior year. Excluding Canopy, comparable earnings per share was $1.93, down 11%.

On average, 17 analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected the company to report profit per share of $1.55, for the quarter. Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items.

Fourth quarter net income attributable to CBI declined to $382.9 million from $398.4 million, prior year. Earnings per class A common stock was $1.95 compared to $2.04.

Fourth quarter net sales were $1.95 billion, up 3% from previous year. Analysts expected revenue of $1.87 billion, for the quarter.

For fiscal 2022, the company expects reported EPS of $6.90 - $7.20; and comparable basis EPS, excluding Canopy, of $9.95 - $10.25.

On April 7, Constellation's board declared a quarterly dividend of $0.76 per share of class A common stock and $0.69 per share of class B common stock.

Brewery news USA: Beer sales will climb even further this year – Constellation Brands
Beer sales, already elevated in 2020 as consumers drank at home, will climb even further this year, says the maker of Modelo and Corona, Bloomberg reported on April 8.

Constellation Brands Inc. says net sales for beer will grow 7% to 9% this fiscal year. That segment includes names like Modelo Especial, which became the third best-selling beer in the U.S. last year, as well as new products like Corona Hard Seltzer, whose unfortunate name connection to the coronavirus isn’t hurting sales. In the year that just ended, the company’s net beer sales were up 8%.

The growth in beer demand comes even as so called on-premise drinking venues like bars, restaurants and events saw demand halved by the coronavirus, said Constellation, which on Thursday reported fourth-quarter sales that beat estimates. But those drops were more than offset by beer demand at home.

Meanwhile, wine and spirits sales are expected to see a net sales decline of 22% to 24% this year. Constellation has been divesting brands in this category, including selling some of its wines to E. & J. Gallo Winery in early 2021.

Brewery news USA: Constellation Brands could rise 30% more on its beer portfolio
Constellation Brands has nearly doubled in value over the past year as the prospects for bars and restaurants fully reopening improve and the potential for social gathering this year increases. But one Wall Street analyst believes the stock of the beer, wine, and spirits distributor isn't done rising just yet, Nasdaq reported on April 5.

Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy says Constellation's beer portfolio, which comprises the still fast-growing Corona and Modelo family of beers, remains one of the best in consumer staples.

Not only did Grundy keep his buy rating on the stock, but he also raised his price target from $276 per share to $300, a 9% increase -- and a 30% increase from where Constellation currently trades.

The pandemic brought about a once-in-a-lifetime challenge to the alcoholic beverage distributor. While beer, wine, and spirits are often seen as recession-proof since people will drink regardless of the economic climate, the coronavirus outbreak closed bars, restaurants, and cafes, which are Constellation's primary sales outlets.

It also didn't help that travel and tourism were crushed as well, since those provide channels for special-occasion drinking.

Yet the Corona and Modelo brands, which account for over two-thirds of Constellation's revenue, held up well, growing by double-digit rates last ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Carling remains best-selling lager in the UK
UK’s pubs have been closed for months due to the national lockdown, but it is not long before people can enjoy a cold pint in a beer garden.

The Morning Advertiser revealed that Carling has been the best-selling lager for some years, as shown by CGA data.

Foster’s took the second spot, whilst Carlsberg was found to be the third most popular lager in the country, as reported by The Morning Advertiser.

Last year was particularly difficult for the hospitality industry due to the forced closures as a result of national lockdowns.

Around 6,358,309 hectolitres of lager were sold in pubs across the UK last year, which has fallen from the 10,144,183 hectolitres of lager sold in 2019, according to CGA figures.

Carling made up 1,722,739 hl of the lager that was sold across the country in the year up to October 2020. This amount of lager brought in £989.5 million to UK pubs.

Around 1,023,530 hl of Foster’s was sold across the country, whilst approximately 574,656 hl of Carlsberg was sold in pubs.

The reopening of beer gardens across the country will be welcomed by many Brits, with several pubs booked up for weeks and months in advance.

Brewery news South Africa: South African Breweries to launch a new empowerment scheme
Beermaker South African Breweries (SAB) has announced that its broad-based black economic empowerment (B-BBEE) scheme SAB Zenzele, will be replaced by the new 'Zenzele Kabili', once it reaches maturity in May, the Engineering News reported on April 7.

SAB Zenzele, which was launched in 2010, will have reached a maturation value of R9.7 billion in May, and shareholders who invested R100 at the scheme’s inception, will receive a R77 518 pre-tax pay out when it unwinds next month.

The new scheme will give taverners, bottle store owners, retailers and SAB employees an opportunity to own stakes in the world's largest beermaker.

“The company is offering SAB Zenzele Retailer Shareholders the opportunity to reinvest a portion of their remaining proceeds into a replacement B-BBEE ownership transaction through the SAB Zenzele Kabili scheme that will own R5.4 billion worth of AB InBev Shares,” said SAB in a statement.

Zenzele Kabili shareholders will collectively own R5.4 billion of the beermaker’s Belgium based parent, AB InBev and will be listed on the JSE’s B-BBEE segment to open up ownership to other B-BBEE investors including SAB employees.

SAB said the old scheme was meant to unwind in March 2020 but had been delayed by Covid-19 restrictions, that resulted ...More info on site

Brewery news India: B9 Beverages to launch a slew of new beers as craft beer market picks pace
B9 Beverages, that makes the Bira 91 brand of beer in India, is set to launch a slew of new beers in the market apart from the re-launch of some of its existing variants, as competition in the craft brews space picks pace, livemint.com reported on April 7.

Some of the launches planned last year were delayed due to Covid-19 led disruptions.

As part of the new launches, the company will release limited edition batches of its beers brewed at its Limited Release Taproom that opened up in Bengaluru last year.

The taproom works as a physical set-up where the company experiments with new beers every week such as—New England IPA, Farmhhouse Ale, Raspberry Sour (ale), to name a few. A few of these, which find favour with consumers, will be rolled out in select markets in packaged formats later this year.

“We will launch more products this fiscal than we did in the last three-to-four years combined. There is a very strong product innovation pipeline that we have, and this is just not just Taproom but in actual cans and bottles for wider distribution," said Ankur Jain, founder and CEO, B9 Beverages Pvt Ltd.

“We would have actually done this last year had Covid ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Asahi Breweries launches sales of new version of Super Dry in mug-cans
A major brewery in Japan has launched a beer can with a fully opening top, making it feel like you're guzzling your suds from a beer mug, The Mainichi Shimbun reported on April 7.

Asahi Breweries Ltd. launched initial sales of the new version of the popular "Super Dry" brand at convenience stores on April 6. Sales at other outlets are set to start on April 20.

The company took four years to develop the mug-can under the concept: "At home, consumers can feel like they are drinking draft beer from a mug served at a bar." Special coating inside the can produces fine foam. As the top of the can comes off entirely, the brewer said it's easy to take in the aroma, and the beer can be enjoyed like it just came from the tap.

The brand manager at the company's beer marketing department, which developed the new can, told The Mainichi Shimbun, "Though there were various high hurdles to overcome, such as developing a top that doesn't cut a person's hands or mouth, and creating foam similar to draft beer served at bars, we've worked as one to develop it. We want customers to be excited about the draft beer cans."
