Scientific Digest


CO2 is a very potent in extracting basically anything you need from hops. This UK research team worked with different conditions including liquid and supercritical CO2, as well as the addition of other solvents, e.g. ethanol, to extract the many important aroma fractions from hops. Each hop variety yields distinct oil fractions and a combination of different varieties and fractions can of course contribute to a wide portfolio of products. Also, the processing of aged hops is feasible and possible undesirable flavours may be eliminated in the process.

Brewery news South Africa: Heineken seeks protection from consequences of AB InBev/SABMiller merger
Heineken on June 22 criticised as vague and irrational the conditions of the mooted merger between major brewers Anheuser-Busch (AB) InBev and SABMiller, IOL reported.

The Competition Tribunal is currently holding hearings on the merger of the two major brewers. This comes after the Competition Commission last month approved the merger with conditions.

The conditions included AB InBev’s commitment not to retrench workers as a result of the merger, an undertaking to continue SABMiller subsidiary SAB’s policy of maximising local production of beer and cider and the creation of a R1 billion fund for the development of South African agricultural outputs for barley, hops and maize, as well as the promotion of entry and growth of emerging and black South African farmers.

But it was the conditions relating to the provision of access to cold room and fridge space that seemed to bother Heineken most. “The conditions are vague and ambiguous,” Heineken’s lawyer, Anthony Norton, said.

He said the merged entity – made up of the largest and second-largest brewing companies in the world – could abuse its dominance in the South African market.

Heineken’s stance is different from the previous concerns about a range of so-called public interest factors. Norton said that contrary to ...More info on site

Brewery news Russia: President Putin signs bill banning production and sale of beer in plastic bottles larger than 1.5 litres
Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a bill banning the production and sale in Russia of beer in plastic bottles larger than 1.5 litres, the RBC news website reported on June 24.

The bill was passed by the State Duma in early June, and bans the production of such bottles from Jan. 1, 2017 onwards. Sales will be banned from June 1, 2017.

Initially, the law would have banned bottles over 0.5 litres, but was changed after written complaints to the Kremlin from companies such as Carlsberg and Heineken. The bill's author Mikhail Tarasenko called this a compromise.

More than half of all beer in Russia is sold in plastic bottles because it is cheaper than glass, and sales of bottles affected by this bill account for 20 percent of all beer sales.

This puts pressure on brewers, whose business in Russia has been harmed already by the economic crisis, restrictions placed on advertising, and state-levied excise taxes. Making the switch to glass and downsizing will be costly and likely drive the price of beer even higher.

This law is one of many recent measures adopted by the Russian government to curb the country's overall alcohol consumption. There is a country-wide ban on sales of ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Number of breweries in the state of California reaches 700
The California Craft Brewers Association announced on June 23 that the number of breweries in the state reached 700, more than at any time in California’s history, San Jose Mercury News reported.

The number of breweries has more than doubled in just the last four years. There are more breweries in the Golden State, by a wide margin, than in any other state. Eleven of the breweries on the list of the nation’s top fifty craft breweries, as defined by the Brewers Association, are based in California.

Brewery news South Africa: Food and Allied Workers Union says won’t take further part in approval process of AB InBev’s takeover of SABMiller
Anheuser-Busch InBev NV cleared a hurdle toward gaining approval for the brewer’s takeover of SABMiller Plc in South Africa as the country’s Food and Allied Workers Union said it will take no further part in the regulatory approval process, Bloomberg reported on June 23.

The FAWU agreed with the merging brewers and South Africa’s Economic Development Minister Ebrahim Patel on June 23 that most conditions relating to the future of SABMiller’s Zenzele employee-share program be removed from the Competition Commission’s recommendation of the deal. The FAWU will instead negotiate on behalf of the program’s participants directly with AB InBev and won’t argue its case against the conditions at the Competition Tribunal hearing in Pretoria this week, the union said.

South Africa is just one of the jurisdictions where AB InBev is trying to get regulatory approval for the takeover, with the country’s Competition Tribunal set to decide on whether to rubber stamp the deal after the hearing concludes on June 24. A key date in the process is Aug. 12, when SABMiller is scheduled to pay its dividend. AB InBev will receive the payout if the deal is completed by then. SABMiller, the brewer of Castle and Grolsch lagers, traces its roots ...More info on site

Brewery news India: SBI-led consortium of banks opposes Heineken’s application to implead in case between Kingfisher Airlines and the banks
An SBI-led consortium of banks on June 22 opposed Dutch beer major Heineken’s application to implead in a case between the banks and Kingfisher Airlines Ltd before the Debt Recovery Tribunal (DRT) in India, the Hindu Business Line reported.

Heineken holds a 43 per cent stake in United Breweries Ltd, which runs Kingfisher.

“At this stage, money lent by the banks and their recovery is being given priority. It (Heineken’s application) cannot be allowed or decided,” a senior counsel appearing for the consortium argued before Presiding Officer CR Benakanahalli.

Heineken is seeking an “anticipatory relief”. The application can be allowed or entertained only at the time of recovery, or while recovery proceedings are taken up, the consortium’s counsel contended.

Counsel appearing for Heineken, quoting a few high court judgments, argued that it has some presumptive rights on UBL shares owned by the company’s chief Vijay Mallya.

It hence wants to be made a party in the proceedings and get rights on purchase of shares attached and sold as per court order.

However, the banks’ counsel said a number of agreements and rights are being produced without getting authenticated. The Tribunal does not have the right to judge them either.

The Presiding Officer said he will give ...More info on site
