Global hop market

A local alternative to mass beer suggested by independent brewers has been successful and is now altering the global market. Beer is becoming more diversified, so transnational companies have to accept the new game rules and to switch focus to young and fast growing markets. All these processes increased the demand for aroma and bitter hop as well as their acreage expansion on two continents. However now there appeared a downward trend of alcohol consumption in the world, so even special sorts can soon turn to be sufficient. In this connection the dynamic American hop market is already facing some problems. EU hop producers have become more cautious, they are not racing to exceed the demand and look forward with more confidence, judging by the contract terms. 

Hop Market in Russia

Germany still dominates the Russian market, yet over the recent two years one has been able observe a continuous success of Czech hop suppliers. Their expansion and growing popularity of hops from the United States became the drivers of supplies growth in 2016 despite the preceding modest harvest crop in the EU, as well as the factor of relative stability in 2017. In this connection, in 2017, the ratio of the varieties continued to shift towards the aroma ones, and the supplies of Magnum hop and other alpha varieties were reduced. However, the import of bitter hop pellets is partially replaced by extracts, especially from the major beer manufacturers. Total volumes of alpha acid supplies, according to our estimation, decreased by approximately 5% and returned to the level of 2015. Barth Haas Group continues dominating the hop products market; HVG also increased its weight. At the same time, Morris Hanbury significantly reduced the supplies in 2017.

Craft beer Italy

The Beviale Family is growing all the time. After Germany, Russia and China, the international network of B2B events for the beverage industry now comes to Italy, helping to further raise awareness of the vibrant world of craft beer, one of today's hottest trends.

You may be wondering whether Italy really needs another craft beer event.

The Beviale Family network

Craft beer Italy is being founded within the worldwide network of the NürnbergMesse Group, which has built on the experience gained from BrauBeviale to create a series of specialist craft beer events around the globe.

BrauBeviale has now passed its 50th edition and is a benchmark event for the beverage industry. Beer has always been at the heart of the show, and over the last few years the event has responded to the potential and importance of the craft beer movement ever since its embryonic phase, by creating the Craft Beer Corner, where craft beers from all over the world can be tasted, and the European Microbrew Symposium, organised by VLB.
