Brewery news Ireland & UK: Guinness craft beer spin-off Hop House 13 to still be available in Ireland and Northern Ireland
The Guinness craft beer spin-off Hop House 13 is being scrapped in Great Britain but will still be available across the island of Ireland, the Irish Post reported on May 5.

It was previously reported that Diageo had opted to discontinue the brand in the UK amid declining sales during the coronavirus pandemic.

The decision came as a shock to many, particularly as Hop House 13 had proven popular upon its initial release with many viewing it as a refreshing alternative to many of the more traditional lagers on tap in pubs across the country.

Diageo described the move as a “strategic decision” designed to help “prioritise the main Guinness trademark in Great Britain”.

They were keen to stress that the decision to shelve Hop House had been “difficult” but was they felt was “right for Guinness in the long term.”

News of the beer’s demise sparked uproar among many fans, with some in Ireland expressing disappointment at the news.

However, a spokesperson for the drinks industry giant has told the Irish Post that Hop House 13 will live on across the island of Ireland.

“Hop House 13 is a much-loved beer and one of the most successful beer innovations in Ireland of the past 6 years ...More info on site

BarleyBarley News Barley

Barley news France: Soft wheat shipments lowest for an April in nine years, no malting barley exports are reported
French soft wheat shipments outside the European Union last month were the lowest for an April in nine years, as exports to Morocco and Algeria eased, Refinitiv data showed, Reuters reported on May 5.

Soft wheat exports to destinations outside the EU-27 and Britain totalled 665,600 tonnes in April, the 10th month of the 2020/21 season, an initial estimate based on Refinitiv loading data showed.

That was the lowest April volume since 2011/12, the data showed.

Last month’s haul was also more than a quarter less than March’s 908,400 tonnes. The March figure was revised down from an initial estimate, but was still a season high.

Traders say export activity has waned due to dwindling supplies from a small 2020 French harvest, slackening demand from importers and a price rally that left French wheat uncompetitive overseas.

Morocco was again the leading destination in April, accounting for 238,900 tonnes, nearly a quarter less than the volume shipped there in March.

Egypt was the second largest non-EU destination with 126,000 tonnes, equal to the volume shipped in March.

Algeria, usually the biggest annual outlet for French soft wheat, took just 75,500 tonnes in April after 240,900 in March.

No wheat was shipped to China last month for the second month ...More info on site

Barley news Ukraine: Ukraine seeds 1.3 mln ha of spring barley as of May 6
Ukraine has sown a total of 4.4 million hectares of spring grains as of May 6, or 58% of the expected area, agriculture ministry data showed on May 7.

Farms have sown 2.4 million hectares of corn, 1.3 million hectares of barley, 226,400 hectares of peas, 172,200 hectares of wheat and 185,400 hectares of oats.

The overall grain area is likely to total 15.5 million hectares this year, including 7.6 million of spring grains, the ministry has said.

The spring sowing area is expected to include 1.388 million hectares of barley, 176,600 hectares of wheat, 5.327 million hectares of corn, 194,050 hectares of oats and 235,400 hectares of peas.

Generally favourable weather could help farmers to increase the grain crop to 75 million tonnes this year from 65 million in 2020.

The ministry said farms had also sown 3.2 million hectares of sunflower, 223,000 hectares of sugar beet and 254,800 hectares of soy beans so far.

The ministry has said the area for sunflowers could total 6.4 million hectares, soy beans 1.4 million hectares, and sugar beet 226,900 hectares in 2021.
