Scientific Digest


This was one of the questions that was looked into when our Barth team conducted these small-scale dry hopping experiments. Applying the temperatures 0°C, 13°C and 20°C with inline GC-measurements of 14 hop aroma components, it was found that for most of the components a higher temperature results in higher concentrations in the beer. However the extraction yield is different for alcohols compared to terpenes and other compounds. It was also observed that a six-fold higher concentration of hops yielded, in general, higher extraction values which are on average only 1-3 times higher. This may be due to a saturation limit.

Hinz, S.: Influence of time, temperature and hop oil content on aroma extraction during dry hopping.

Brewery news Brazil: Brewers pushing back against tax overhaul
Brazilian beverage producers, including groups that represent Ambev SA, Heineken NV and Coca-Cola Co., are pushing back against a tax overhaul they say will open up the industry to fraud and put their trade secrets at risk, ESM reported on October 14.

The government’s plan is to ask companies to self-report the quantity of ingredients they receive and the volumes they produce. That would replace the current use of machines to track how much soda or beer is being made - an expensive method that was meant to cut down on tax fraud but has ultimately been deemed overkill.

Changing the system will cut costs and make better use of revenue generated from state and federal taxes, which combined average about 44 percent for beer, the government says.

But the switch comes at a difficult time for Ambev, Brazil’s top-selling brewer, which is controlled by multinational giant AB InBev SA. To adopt the new system, companies will have to disrupt production at the end of this year, at the peak of summer in the southern hemisphere, according to the manufacturer of the current machines. And Ambev is still working to recover from a sales slowdown that hurt its first-half results.

The beer giants are ...More info on site

Brewery news South America: Craft beer conquering South American markets
Think of Latin American alcohol and you are likely to think of wine and spirits.

Mexico has its tequila, Cuba has rum, Brazilians drink caipirinhas and in Peru they make pisco. In Chile and Argentina, the tipple of choice is often a cabernet sauvignon or a malbec.

You are less likely to think of craft beer.

But slowly, surely, the beer revolution that is so well established in northern Europe and North America is starting to trickle southwards, BBC reported on October 14.

Across Latin America, small breweries are opening up, offering alternatives to the mass-produced brands of lagers.

These emerging microbreweries account for only a tiny fraction of overall beer sales, but that fraction is expanding quickly.

"Sales of craft beer in Latin America are growing at between 20% and 40% a year, depending on which country you're in," says Daniel Trivelli, president of Copa Cervezas de America, one of the region's biggest craft beer contests.

"Here in Chile, sales are growing at 25% and craft beers have around 2% of the overall beer market. We have around 250 craft beer breweries here, producing around 1,500 different beers."

Traditionally, Latin Americans have tended to drink light low-alcohol lagers, in part due to the hot climate across much ...More info on site

Brewery news Australia: Carlton & United Breweries can officially claim its status as Australia’s number one brewer
Carlton & United Breweries can officially claim its status as Australia’s number one brewer, Anheuser-Busch InBev has declared, having taken control of the company on October 10.

AB InBev also sought to clarify that Jan Craps, Zone President Asia Pacific South, will have a dual role as Chief Executive Officer of CUB, its Australian business unit.

CUB’s newly appointed president Peter Filipovic is effectively second-in-command, with responsibility for commercial delivery of the division.

Filipovic is one of 13 business unit presidents comprising the Asia Pacific South Zone Management Committee – abbreviated by AB InBev to ‘Zone ManCom’.

All 13 of these executives report directly to Craps. The zone leadership team also includes ‘functional leaders’, most of whom are responsible for leading business functions across the entire zone.

Among their number is newly appointed VP Marketing Richard Oppy, whose role AB InBev said “will initially be focused on delivery for Australia and sharing best practice across the zone – this will be broadened to include full zone responsibility in time”.

Craps said the zone leadership team is made up almost equally of AB InBev and SABMiller colleagues.

“This diversity of background, nationality and experience from many different regions will deliver a truly ‘best of both’ approach and allow ...More info on site

Brewery news Colombia: For Colombians AB InBev’s takeover of SABMiller means more beer choice
One of the most anticipated corporate mergers in recent history was sealed last week when Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) acquired SABMiller. The Anglo-South African SABMiller purchased Colombia’s Bavaria from the family-owned Santo Domingo Group back in 2005 as part of this international group’s expansion into South America. Bavaria is South America’s No. 2 brewer with 99% market shares in Colombia and Peru, The City Paper Bogota reported on October 14.

As of Oct 10, the news of the third largest ever take-over became official and Bavaria, as well as the niche Bogotá Beer Company became part of the Belgium-based InBev and world’s largest beer company. For Colombia, the brands that are part of beer history, such as Club Colombia, Aguila, Poker and Costeña will continue to dominate the local market, but with the InBev incursion, consumers get more choice, with Stella Artois, Budweiser and Corona expanding InBev’s domestic beer portfolio. And of course you can still enjoy all the craft beer selections by the Bogotá Beer Company in their pubs and in restaurants and supermarkets across the nation.

The InBev-SABMiller merger also means new leadership at the top for Colombia and the region. Ricardo Moreira assumes the post of president for the ...More info on site

Brewery news Latvia: Uzavas Alus brewery to increase production capacity by a third next year
Uzavas Alus brewery based in the Ventspils municipality in north-western Latvia (formerly Zaksi) next year will increase its production capacity by one third, the company's owner Uldis Pumpurs told LETA.

He said that Uzavas Alus this year has started selling its beer in Finland where it is available in Stockmann stores and has already won interest of consumers.

At the end of October the company plans to send its first shipments to Germany, where the beer will be sold in Gunars Kirsons' restaurants Kirsons. "If we manage to develop in the Finnish market, then next year Uzavas Alus will expand and increase production by one third," said Pumpurs, adding that in the future also other export perspectives may open, for example, to Russia.

Pumpurs said that the company next year plans to purchase new equipment in order to increase its capacity. Pumpurs did not disclose the planned investments, but said that the EU funding will also be attracted to the project.

Last year Uzavas Alus generated EUR 3.195 mln in sales, up 2.9% y-o-y, and posted EUR 238,940 in loss in contrast to a profit a year ago.

The company was founded in 1995 and its share capital is EUR 298,802. The company's sole owner ...More info on site
