Anheuser-Busch announced on August 29 a $22.5 million investment in its Houston brewery, which includes upgrades to the facility’s internal systems to enhance workplace safety and improve brewery efficiency. Anheuser-Busch has a long history of commitment to being a strong partner to the communities it calls home, and these upcoming local investments reflect the brewer’s dedication to delivering the highest-quality beer and other beverages to consumers while driving economic prosperity around the country.

Brewery news Finland & Norway: Nordic drinks firm Anora to distribute AB InBev beer brands in Finland and Norway
Nordic drinks firm Anora has announced the signing of a partnership with AB InBev, under which it will distribute beer brands including Corona, Stella Artois and Budweiser in the on-trade channel in Finland and Norway, the European Supermarket Magazine reported on August 28.

The agreement comes into effect at the start of September, and will enable Finland-headquartered Anora to strengthen its offering to on-trade customers, a key element in its growth strategy, the drinks firm said.

“We are honoured and excited about this partnership with AB InBev," commented Pekka Tennilä, Anora chief executive.

"We have been focusing strongly on building our on-trade excellence at Anora and this partnership is another important step on that path. In line with our purpose of bringing the world of drinks to Nordic consumers, with the addition of these iconic beer brands in our partner brand portfolio we can offer even better service to our on-trade customers in Finland and Norway."

Brewery news Japan: Asahi Super Dry to get new low-alcohol spinoff
Asahi Super Dry is Japan’s favorite brand of beer, so it was a big deal when Asahi Breweries changed its recipe for the first time ever last year. Now they’ve created a new member of the Super Dry extended family, Asahi Super Dry Dry Crystal, SoraNews24 reported on August 27.

Yes, “Dry” is in the official name twice, but Asahi Super Dry Dry Crystal isn’t an extra-dry version of Super Dry, nor is it a Sailor Moon Crystal-themed brew. Instead, Asahi Super Dry Dry Crystal is a low-alcohol version of Super Dry. While the standard Super Dry is 5 percent alcohol by volume, Dry Crystal is 3.5 percent, as indicated on its can.

Despite the lower alcohol content, Asahi Super Dry Dry Crystal won’t have a watery or bland taste, Asahi Breweries assures the consumers. The company is promising a satisfyingly full flavor, achieved in part through the use of Polaris hops and a higher-than-average fermentation rate for Dry Crystal.

Barley news Australia & China: Australia ships first cargo of barley to China since tariff lift
Australia has shipped the first barley cargo to China since tariffs imposed in 2020 were lifted earlier this month, the country's minister for agriculture said on August 29, Reuters reported.

China ended anti-dumping tariffs on Australian barley earlier this month, roughly three years after the 80.5% duties first dented exports once worth up to A$1.5 billion ($967 million) annually and led Canberra to file a case at the World Trade Organization (WTO).

"It's terrific to have heard that overnight the first shipment has been dispatched from Kwinana and its gradually working its way towards China," Minister for Agriculture Murray Watt said at a news conference on August 29.

The chief of grain exporter CBH Group said the shipment was roughly 55,000 tons of Maximus barley, a malt variety.

Barley news Ukraine: Winter barley planted area may decrease significantly this year
Ukrainian farmers plan to increase the sown area of winter rape for 2024 to a record 1.9 million hectares but may cut the sown area of winter wheat, an agriculture ministry survey showed on August 28.

The survey said that 45% of farmers did not plan to reduce the winter sowing area while 38% would increase it and 14% would not sow winter crops, the ministry said in a statement.

"The overwhelming majority of farmers do not plan to significantly change their winter crops acreage compared to last season," the ministry said.

Earlier this month, Ukraine, facing difficulties in exporting its grain, asked farmers to report their sowing plans for 2024 to form preliminary estimates for the 2024/25 season.

It said 2,403 farmers and agricultural producers participated in the survey.

The ministry said the composition of winter crops might change and producers could reduce the share of wheat and barley, but increase the area under winter rape.

According to the survey, winter barley area may decrease most significantly - by 5.4%.

It said the overall winter crop area could rise by 0.5 million hectares, or 8%, compared to the previous season.

"Rapeseed remains the key factor in the expansion of the sown areas, with the planted area under ...More info on site
