Scientific Digest


Breeding hop varieties for higher yield, disease resistance and improved brewing characteristics is a lengthy and expensive process. Use of new genomic tools enables greater precision in selection as well as reduced dependence upon lengthy phenotypic evaluations. This research group performed genomic studies in hops that looked at multiple quantitative traits to identify potential molecular markers for use in selection. Quantitative trait loci (QTL) studies focused upon the identification of SNP markers linked to downy mildew resistance. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) looked for markers linked to yield, alpha and beta acid levels, cohumulone levels, hop storageability, oil amounts, and levels of caryophyllene, limonene, humulene and myrcene. They were successful in identifying a total of 98 SNP markers as significantly associated with one of the 10 traits. An additional outcome of this study was the identification of a set of 7 SNPs that effectively differentiated all 116 varieties.

Brewery news Jamaica: Red Stripe to repatriate production of its namesake beer destined for the US by September
Red Stripe's plan to repatriate beer produced in the United States to Jamaica is projected to boost domestic production by 30 per cent, Jamaica Gleaner reported on February 19.

The move is also expected to add just shy of 200 direct jobs, half of which are destined for the local brewer's cassava farms, and provide employment for an additional 3,000 indirect workers for outsourced cassava production.

When the company relocated the production of up to 3.5 million cases (approximately 280,000 hectolitres) of beer destined for the United States to the North American market in 2012, it cut more than 70 jobs.

By September, it will bring back that production to Kingston, including the canning of beer destined for the US and Canada. Bottled beers sold in Canada will continue to be produced in that North American market.

The increased employment should boost the Government's tax revenue by some J$80 million based on just the 133 full-time positions to be created. Red Stripe should be able to credit the statutory deductions component about J$30 million through the employment tax credit provision of new tax legislation.

Still, this hardly dents the J$550-million income tax the beer maker pays on average each year, or the over J$2.5 billion ...More info on site

Brewery news The Czech Republic & Russia: Czech brewers see exports to Russia fall due to the financial crisis
A Russian fashion for imported beers meant a boon for Czech breweries a few years back. However, the economic crisis of the last two years and restrictions on marketing have led to a marked fall in exports of Czech lager to the world’s biggest country, the daily Hospodářské noviny reported.

In 2014, 10.2 percent of Czech beer exports went to Russia, making it the third biggest export market for brewers in this part of the world. Last year that share fell to 5.5 percent, with the Russians placing fifth among importers.

The fall in the price of oil and international sanctions caused the collapse of the rouble in the second half of 2014.

The financial crisis that has followed has forced Russians to tighten their belts and many beer drinkers have switched to cheaper, locally produced brands.

A representative of Budějovický Budvar, Jiří Pekhart, told Hospodářské noviny that its sales in Russia had fallen by almost half last year. Fellow Czech brewer Bernard reported a similar situation.

The three biggest Czech firms on the market, Plzeňský Prazdroj, Staropramen and Krušovice, all of which have brewing facilities in the country, have also seen declines.

Indeed, data from the Czech Statistics Office and the customs authority shows that ...More info on site

Whisky news Japan: Kirin Brewery considering exporting its Fujisanroku whisky
Kirin Brewery Co. is considering exporting its mainstay Fujisanroku (Foot of Mt. Fuji) whisky, possibly from this year, a company official said on February 17.

The move, aimed at enhancing the Tokyo-based company's brand power overseas, comes as whisky has become increasingly popular at home and abroad.

It would be the first whisky export for the Japanese company and follow similar moves by rival Japanese producers.

Demand for Japanese whisky is "growing stronger in Europe as it has begun winning awards at international competitions," said Toshihiro Tanaka, head of Kirin's marketing department.

But the level of Fujisanroku exports will depend on demand at home and abroad given the shortage of its base liquor, according to the company.
