Brewery news USA: Montana drinks most beer among America’s states, study says
It is no secret that America loves its beer, but this list of the 10 states that drink the most beer certainly throws up a few curveballs, The Drinks Business reported on January 6.

All of the data in this list comes courtesy of home-brew and beer resource Learning to Homebrew. The data was compiled by founder and CEO Joshua Bartlett, who examined criteria including population density, gallons of beer consumed per capita, barrel production and revenue, and number of breweries.

Here are the top 10 states that drink the most beer in America:

Montana – perhaps a surprising first place, but Montana consumes 40.8 units of beer consumed per capita and has 92 active breweries.

New Hampshire – this relatively small state packs a punch, consuming 39.8 units of beer per capita and boasting 91 breweries.

North Dakota – a smaller state still, but North Dakota drinks 38.2 units of beer per capita.

South Dakota – though South Dakota has a population of less than one million and only 22 breweries, it drinks 38.2 units of beer per capita.

Maine – Maine has an impressive 133 active breweries and consumes 33.8 units of beer per capita.

Vermont – With a population of just over 600,000, Maine ...More info on site

Brewery news Ireland: Guinness to raise prices in February in a new blow to struggling publicans
Guinness will raise prices of Ireland’s favorite brew next month by 12 euro cents per pint, a new blow to struggling publicans and prompting calls for the company to reconsider its decision, Bloomberg reported on January 10.

London-based parent company Diageo Plc, which reported profit of £3.34 billion ($4.1 billion) in its latest fiscal year, said it could no longer afford to absorb rising costs, which are increasing for brewers worldwide.

Pubs are already grappling with a soaring cost of energy and still recovering from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on their businesses. The move also follows a similar 17 euro-cent increase announced by Heineken NV on its products in December.

Vintners Federation of Ireland Chief Executive Paul Clancy said publicans were “getting hammered from every angle” and described Diageo’s move as a further difficulty for his members.

“We’re heading into the quietest few months of the year for the trade, so the increase in the price of a pint couldn’t come at a worse time. Due to the unprecedented cost of doing business publicans will have to pass on this price increase to their customers, which is something they are very unhappy about,” he said.

Speaking to reporters in Dublin, Irish Prime ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Founders Brewing Co. and Avery Brewing Co. merge with their parent to become Mahou USA
Founders Brewing Co. and Colorado-based Avery Brewing Co. have merged with Mahou — the breweries’ parent company — to become Mahou USA, FOX 17 reported on January 10.

The merge will officially happen Thursday, Jan. 12. It will be the culmination of a business transition that started in 2014.

“Founders and Avery have been working together cohesively for the past two years, and we have consistently found strength within this partnership of brands,” says Mahou CEO Elton Andres Knight. "Combining Founders and Avery with Mahou Imports into Mahou USA will enable us to compete on another level within the marketplace, which will bring a refreshing change as we move through 2023 and beyond.”

Mahou adds the transition will allow its offerings to remain competitive in the craft beer industry, in addition to bringing more products once unavailable throughout much of the U.S.

Brewery news Democratic Republic of Congo: Brasimba brewery’s output more than triples between 2013 and 2021
Bottles of beer zip along a conveyor belt in a Brasimba factory which has weathered two deadly Ebola outbreaks and waves of fighting linked to rebel militias active in the nearby forests, Reuters reported on January 11.

After an initial investment of 125 million euros ($134 million), beer output at the plant in the northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo city of Beni more than tripled to 600,000 hectolitres between 2013 and 2021.

Brasimba, which has been controlled by France's Castel Group since 1995, further expanded production in Beni last year with a second filling line. Along with warehouse expansion, this should help Brasimba manage supply disruptions as the impoverished province grapples with a major offensive by the M23 rebel group.

"The Beni plant has become the hope of this battered region, many people have embraced the project and find it extremely positive to see an international group investing in the region," said Brasimba sales manager Thomas Wybauw.

Workers in high visibility vests load crates onto lorries that will take up to a month to reach their destinations, bumping slowly along the rutted or muddy roads, sometimes having to navigate rebel checkpoints.

"We are unable to access certain areas. We have roads that are sometimes blocked ...More info on site

Brewery news New Zealand: Brewers concerned by New Zealand’s only carbon dioxide plant shutdown
The liquid carbon dioxide plant at Kāpuni in Taranaki has been temporarily shut down because of safety concerns, and no reopening date has been announced, 1News reported on January 11.

It had been New Zealand's only domestic producer of food-grade CO2 since the Marsden Point refinery was decommissioned last year.

CO2 is used to carbonate drinks and is also used in brewery equipment.

Brewers Association executive director Dylan Firth said brewers were quite concerned.

Brewers may have to import carbon at a higher price or invest in gas-capturing technology, Firth said.

He was hopeful production of the gas could catch up if the facility was not closed for long.
