Scientific Digest


A Japanese research team investigated the different polyphenol profiles of the varieties Hallertau Mittelfrueh, Hallertau Tradition, Saazer, Tettnanger, Perle and Cascade. Analysing a range of different polyphenol monomers, they found that the classic European land varieties have more proanthocyanidin whereas the others had more flavonones and prenylflavonoids. These different profiles showed a flavor difference in the brewed beers in regards to sweetness and astringency. A strong correlation to the genetic heritage was also visible. The researchers found that proanthyocyanidin correlates with the fullness of beer while the content of flavonone and prenylflavonoid correlates with the intensity of astringency.

Brewery news World: Budweiser rated the most powerful alcohol brand in the world
Diageo's Johnnie Walker and Smirnoff have continued their slide down a list of the world's most valuable brands.

The whisky and vodka were the worst alcohol performers on Interbrand's Best Global Brands Report 2016, which lists the top 100 brands by estimated worth. Johnnie Walker slipped to 95th spot with a 5% value drop to US$4.3 bln while Smirnoff was 96th, after a 4% fall to $4.2 bln.

According to the annual Interbrand rankings, both brands peaked in value in 2014 but have decreased over the past two years. Last year, Johnnie Walker was 92nd and Smirnoff 94th.

The only other spirits brand on the list was Brown-Forman's Jack Daniel's, which boosted value by 1% to $5.2 bln and claimed 85th position.

Anheuser-Busch InBev's Budweiser was rated the most powerful alcohol brand as it increased estimated value by 8% to $15.1 bln. It was the fourth-straight increase for the beer, which was ranked 30th on the list.

AB InBev's Corona Extra, which is owned in the US by Constellation Brands, was in 93rd spot, up 1% to $4.5 bln. Heineken's namesake lager was at 87th position after a 6% value increase to $5.1 bln. LVMH's Moet & Chandon Champagne was flat at $4.2 bln and ...More info on site

Brewery news India: Beer expected to outsell hard drinks for the first time
For the first time, beer will outsell hard drinks in India this year, according to data from market research firm Euromonitor.

While beer sales volumes are forecast to grow higher at an average 5.7% between 2015 and 2020, the growth in spirits as a category will be less than 2%, Euromonitor analysts believe.

Expanding middle class, growth in social drinking, and the shift away from hard liquor due to health concerns are the main drivers of growth in beer consumption, according to Euromonitor International.

Brewery news Nigeria: Guinness Nigeria says Diageo’s decision not to increase stake will not have negative impact on the firm
Guinness Nigeria has said Diageo’s decision to stop its earlier offer to increase its equity stake in the firm will not have any negative impact on the firm or its shareholders, naija247news.com reported.

On September 9, Diageo, acting through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Guinness Overseas Limited, had announced its intention to increase its equity stake in Guinness Nigeria Plc to 70 per cent from the current 54.3 per cent and maintain the company’s listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange.

Reuters had reported that Diageo said last year that it planned to buy 15.7 per cent of Guinness Nigeria for up to N41.37bn.

However, three weeks after the potential offer was made, in a memo dated October 4, Guinness announced that Diageo would not proceed with the offer.

Diageo cited challenging market conditions in Nigeria over the past 12 months as reason for its decision to renege on the offer, adding that it proposed to focus its resources on continued support for Guinness Nigeria.

Speaking in a telephone interview with journalists on October 5, the Director of Corporate Affairs and Company Secretary, Guinness Nigeria, Mr. Sesan Sobowole, said the decision would not affect Guinness Nigeria negatively.

He said if Diageo had gone ahead to acquire more shares, it ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: US biggest craft brewer D.G. Yuengling & Son voices opposition to pending AB InBev, SABMiller merger
D.G. Yuengling & Son, the US largest craft brewer, is voicing opposition to the pending $103 billion merger of Anheuser-Busch InBev and SABMiller PLC, which is expected to close on October, 11, St. Louis Business Journal reported on October 7.

Pottsfield, Pennsylvania-based Yuengling wrote a letter to the U.S. Justice Department this week opposing the agreement that cleared the way for the deal to close, The Morning Call reports.

As part of its agreement with the Justice Department, AB InBev agreed to divest SABMiller's entire U.S. business, including its ownership interest in MillerCoors, and to refrain from limiting the ability and incentives of independent beer distributors to sell and promote the beers of its rivals. However, in its letter to the Justice Department, Yuengling claims the agreement doesn't do enough to limit the merged entity's influence on beer distribution channels in the U.S.

"Yuengling considers recent events and the proposed merger as one of the biggest threats to its existence, short of a second round of Prohibition," the company said in the letter.

Yuengling claims AB InBev has fought the craft brewer's expansion into some areas such as Mississippi by putting pressure on distributors who are dependent on AB InBev for much of their ...More info on site
