U.S. Craft Beer Sales Dominate the South American Market


Sao Paulo, Brasil, 2017-Oct-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — Mexico has its tequila, Cuba has rum, Brazilians drink caipirinhas and now America has craft beer.  Though the U.K. holds the most breweries per capita, the U.S. remains the largest producer of craft beer with 5,000+ breweries.  In fact, the craft beer revolution has become so strong and established in Europe and North America that the trend has begun trickling southwards and is dominating sales in places like Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru.

“Sales of craft beer in Latin America are growing at between 20% and 40% a year, depending on which country you’re in,” said Daniel Trivelli in a 2016 BBC News article.  President of Copa Cervezas de America, one of the region’s biggest craft beer contests, Trivelli said craft beer sales in Chile grew nearly 25% from the previous year, which represented only 2% of the overall beer market in 2016.

Craft beer is a trend the world over, and South America is jumping on the bandwagon as its culinary scene continues to progress at an astounding rate, its craft brewing scene is getting global recognition through its introduction of America’s most popular and beloved flavors.  Here are a few of the popular craft beers from America you can find on your next visit to Central and South America:

Chub Scotch Ale • Oskar Blues Oskar Blues Brewery • Colorado

Oskar Blues Chub Scotch Ale, which was rated amongst the top 50 beers on Ratebeer comes from a funky little brew pub in Longmont, Colorado.  The dark brown color features a beautiful Beige cream reveals notes of cocoa, coffee, dried and smoked dark fruit.  Its potent alcoholic strength of 8% balances well between its sweet and slightly bitter taste.  From the brewery that began the craft-beer-in-a-can craze, the scotch ale tastes strong with big and deliciously complex flavors.

Even More Jesus • Evil Twin Brewing • New York

A black color and a persistent foam contain an aroma espresso, chocolate, and caramel.  This complex beer produced in limited quantities features an intense flavor of chocolate, coffee, and brown sugar.  Its sweet flavor, high body, and dry coffee aftertaste are recognizable throughout all 12% of its alcohol volume making it worthy of the vote of one of the best breweries in the world.

Independence Pass Ale • Aspen Brewing Company • Aspen, Colorado

Ideal for the adventurous home cook, the Independence Pass Ale is for the friend in the group who doesn’t like IPAs but wants to look like they like IPAs.  This hoppy yet balanced, high altitude rendition of the classic India Pale Ale style won Gold Medals two years in a row at the World Beer Cup, the most prestigious beer competition in the world.  A major catalyst for Aspen Brewing Company, this high-altitude rendition of the classic IPA boasts an all-around fuller flavor and smells of strong caramelized malts when you pour the off-white, hazy and “chunky” amber body into the pint.

Funk-n-Delicious, Belgian-Style Blueberry Sour Ale • Oceanside Ale Works San Diego  

Tastes as sour as blueberry jack hammer to the tongue with a hazy amber color and a thin, white, frothy head. Dedicated to using only the freshest hops and finest barleys, Oceanside Ale Works gifts to the world a series of Belgian style blonde ales spontaneously fermented with wild airborne yeast Blueberry, Peach, and Strawberry.  The Lambic/Belgian sours, aged in Johannesburg Riesling barrels with organic blueberries, gives off a mild sweet aroma and flavor of Belgian sugar, champagne, and grains.  One of the few remaining manual brew houses in the country, this 20-barrel brewery produces a hand-crafted beer with a 6% ABV you are sure to remember.  Whether you’re relaxing in luxury in Peru’s upscale Miraflores district, soaking up the arts in Sao Paulo, or experimenting with flavors in Argentina the craft beer revolution can be found nearby.

Dunkin’ Donuts to serve 100% espresso beans sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms by the end of this year

Dunkin’ Donuts espresso beverages in U.S. and 16 international markets to be made with 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified™ espresso beans by end of 2016

Rainforest Alliance works around the world to support long-term sustainability and the quality of life for farmers, their families and their communities

CANTON, MA, 2016-Jul-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — As a coffee leader, Dunkin’ Donuts is committed to sustainable sourcing, incorporating certified products in its coffee portfolio and helping to make a positive impact on farming communities worldwide. Today, the brand announced that it will continue to fulfill this commitment by expanding its current work with the Rainforest Alliance to have all Dunkin’ Donuts’ espresso beverages served at Dunkin’ Donuts U.S. restaurants and in approximately 16 international markets made with 100% espresso beans sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms by the end of this year.

The Rainforest Alliance is an international nonprofit organization that works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods so that the planet and people prosper together. Rainforest Alliance certification helps to protect wildlife; safeguard soils and waterways; and improve quality of life for workers, their families and local communities.

Findings in the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) / Rainforest Alliance Impacts Report, released early this year, show that Rainforest Alliance certification benefits small-scale producers. Smallholder farms applying the agronomic practices outlined in the SAN Standard were found to increase productivity and profitability, improve environmental quality and health, and had increased access to training. In addition, certification helps to improve working conditions and access to medical care and schools for their children.

Espresso beans from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms are the latest in several recent introductions of products by Dunkin’ Brands, parent company of Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, that carry the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal. In the U.S. and select international markets, Dunkin’ Donuts serves 30% Rainforest Alliance Certified Dark Roast Coffee, and 30% Rainforest Alliance Certified Iced Green Tea is available in select U.S. markets. In 2015, Dunkin’ Donuts offered 30% Rainforest Alliance Certified Colombian Packaged Coffee, the brand’s first-ever single-origin packaged coffee, for a limited time. Internationally, Baskin-Robbins launched Lemon Black Tea Sorbet and Raspberry Black Tea Sorbet, each made with 50% Rainforest Alliance Certified black tea, as limited time offers in 2014.

Additionally, since 2010, Dunkin’ Brands has granted more than $260,000 to the Rainforest Alliance to fund projects on coffee and tea farms in Colombia, Guatemala, Ethiopia and India. With these funds, the Rainforest Alliance has provided technical assistance and training programs to coffee and tea farmers seeking to improve the sustainability and productivity of their farms. The grants have also helped certify more than 4,000 coffee farms, which now abide by comprehensive economic, social and environmental criteria developed by SAN, and provide training for farmers to assist them in better adapting to climate change.

According to Christine Riley Miller, Dunkin’ Brands Senior Director of Corporate Social Responsibility, “Dunkin’ Donuts is committed to responsibly serving our guests, franchisees, communities and the interests of our planet. Rainforest Alliance encompasses the economic, social and environmental aspects of sustainability to help farmers, particularly small-scale farmers, achieve an increase in profitability and productivity. We are excited to grow our work with the Rainforest Alliance, and going forward we hope to continue to increase the number of certified items — both coffee and other products — we make available to our guests.”

“We’re proud to be working with a company that shares our vision for a future where people and the planet can prosper together,” said Alex Morgan, Director of Markets Transformation for the Rainforest Alliance. “By prioritizing sustainably sourced coffee, Dunkin’ Donuts is renewing their commitment to being environmentally, socially, and economically responsible.”
