Scientific Digest

Possible character impact compounds in the hop varieties Citra®, Centennial and Nelson Sauvin

To find this was the goal of this US research team. Using AEDA and GC-Olfactometry they found myrcene and alpha-pinene to have the highest FD (Flavour Dilution) Factor in the nonpolar fraction, hence to be of importance. In the polar fraction they found geraniol and linalool but also isovaleric acid and vanillin plus a sulfur component to have the highest FD factors. The sulfur component was identified as S-methyl methanethiosulfonate. The latter compound still needs to be confirmed. Even with this identification, the uniqueness of these three hop varieties cannot be explained.

Brewery news Canada: Labatt Breweries buying Toronto-based craft brewer Mill Street
Canadian beer giant Labatt Breweries is buying Toronto-based Mill Street Brewery for an undisclosed amount as it looks to gain a bigger stake in the burgeoning craft beer market, The Canadian Press reported on October 9.

The acquisition of the privately held Mill Street brand will help Labatt expand the craft label into new markets, including Quebec, executives told The Canadian Press on October 9 ahead of an official announcement.

“We think that this partnership will really help expand awareness of craft across the country,” said Charlie Angelakos, vice president of corporate affairs at Labatt.

“The folks of Mill Street have built a great business and we want to continue to help them foster that growth.”

Labatt will also invest $10 million into the company’s brewery operations.

“Many craft brewers in Ontario are experiencing this huge surge just to keep up with demand,” said Mill Street co-founder Steve Abrams.

“This immediate infusion of capital will assist us in getting tanks and more equipment.”

The popularity of craft breweries has been on the rise across Canada in recent years.

According to recent findings from data research company NPD Group, the consumption of beer declined by six per cent in 2014, but craft beer servings were up seven per cent.

Brewery news Jamaica: Red Stripe boss expects no immediate shifts in Diageo brands production after Diageo-Heineken deal
Red Stripe Jamaica boss, Cedric Blair, says he expects no shifts in production for the Diageo brands produced locally under the deal in which Heineken NV has bought the assets and brand of the favoured Jamaican beer for US$421 million, but cannot speak to what will happen in other markets, The Jamaica Gleaner reported on October 8.

Heineken has bought Diageo's shares in Desnoes & Geddes Limited, the corporate vehicle for Red Stripe, and has also bought other Diageo's brewing stakes in other markets, in an overall US$781 million deal.

Diageo has sold its 57.9 per cent stake in D&G to the Dutch company. Heineken previously owned a 15.5 per cent stake in the Jamaican company, so it now controls 73.3 per cent.

Pressed on the intended positioning of the lines held by Diageo, Blair said he doesn't know just yet what will transpire.

"Heineken is the No. 3 beer company in the world so we expect a lot of continuity. I wouldn't see any impact to production whatsoever in terms of the brands that we produce and sell in Jamaica. I would expect that to continue," Blair said.

But regarding production in the international markets, "I wouldn't be able to answer to that. I ...More info on site

Brewery news South Sudan: SABMiller forced to cut production, fire more than half the workforce at South Sudan unit
SABMiller Plc has cut production and fired more than half the workforce at its South Sudan unit as a lack of foreign currency and the soaring cost of beer holds back investment and stifles demand.

The world’s second-biggest beer maker has failed to make a profit in South Sudan since opening the East African country’s first brewery in 2009, according to Carlos Gomes, managing director of the unit, South Sudan Beverages Ltd. The company has cut 250 jobs in the past two months and reduced output of local beers such as White Bull to 15 percent of June volumes, he said.

SABMiller, a takeover target for larger competitor Anheuser-Busch InBev NV, has “invested $94 million in various packages and is not willing any more to put in money when there are no dividends,” Gomes said in an interview in Juba, the capital, on Oct. 2. The London-based brewer hasn’t “got a single cent in return since we started operations,” he was quoted as saying in a report by Bloomberg on October 9.

South Sudan’s economy, which relies on oil for almost all exports, will probably contract by 7.5 percent this year as crude production falls after almost two years of civil war that ...More info on site

Brewery news Israel: Craft brewing trend conquers Israeli market
With 53 microbreweries established in the past decade, the fast-growing trend of boutique breweries creating small batches of craft beers is currently exploding on the Israeli scene. Israeli craft beer enthusiasts have entered into a “golden age” in which experimentation, innovation and quality have come together to create some of the region’s most sought-after brews.

Doug Greener, author of the comprehensive beer blog Israel Brews and Views, shared a bit about his knowledge of Israeli microbreweries with Breaking Israel News. He explained that the sudden eruption of craft breweries in Israel is due to many factors, but above all, it results from the desire to experiment and create beers that can rival the award-winning wines for which the country has become famous in the last thirty years.

“People got tired of drinking beer that was undistinguished. In a country where classy wine and classy restaurants have become the norm, and are winning awards, it was very difficult for people to ignore beer. So craft beer started up and started becoming classy,” explained Greener.

Evyatar Cohen, Owner of Kos Shel Bracha, a high-quality wine and beer store in Jerusalem, shared his thoughts with Breaking Israel News about the budding industry.

“People are trying new things ...More info on site
