Extreme weather conditions affect the European beer ingredient market

05 October 2018

Poor harvest in 2018 throughout Europe

The rainy and cold weather in spring and drought during the summer affects pricing and availability of ingredients for brewing beer.

The very reduced harvest yield in Europe of barley has already caused price increases in malt at the end of September. However, we do not foresee any shortage as we – via one of our main suppliers – have secured sufficient stock for existing customers. 

More alarming is the situation with hops for which we expect shortage and price increases during the coming year.
