Scientific Digest


This question was addressed by a German research group. They compared different crown liner material with highly hopped beer packaged in bottles. For all measured hop components, the first 20 days showed a high absorption curve of these aroma components in the different liner materials. There was little difference observed between those liner materials but it was shown that the hydrocarbon components are especially susceptible to quick sorption while terpenoids showed minor migration tendency. Drink your beer before the liners get all the delicious hop flavours!

Brewery news USA: Craft beer market may be starting to get stale
The craft beer market, for years the lone bright spot in an otherwise sluggish industry, is starting to get stale, Bloomberg reported on October 28.

Sales growth is slowing, once-thriving brewers are laying off workers and the proliferation of new brands all competing for attention hearkens back to the dime-a-dozen startups from the web’s early days. On October 28, the world’s biggest brewer, Budweiser maker Anheuser-Busch InBev NV, acknowledged the slowdown for the first time, saying the sector has been decelerating for more than three months.

While many craft brands are still thriving, and few analysts expected the category’s supercharged growth to continue unabated, the cooling market isn’t welcome news for a brewing sector that’s desperate for growth. Mass-market beers such as Budweiser and Coors Light have been suffering for years, and AB InBev now expects U.S. industry volumes to decline this year versus previous expectations of an improvement.

“There’s a natural point where it can’t grow anymore and this might be it,” Anthony Bucalo, an analyst at HSBC, said by phone. “Consumers are overwhelmed by too much choice; the industry has been swamped. There’s too many brands, too many styles, not enough quality.”

Brewery news South Korea: Oriental Brewery decides to hike prices of its beers by an average 6%
Oriental Brewery (OB) has decided to hike the prices of Cass and its other beer brands by an average 6 percent effective Nov. 1, placing a heavier financial burden on low-income households, the Korea Times reported on October 28.

Hite-Jinro, Lotte Chilsung and other beer makers are expected to follow suit although company officials have remained mum about when and by how much they would raise prices.

OB, the country's largest brewer owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev), said on October 28 that it will increase the factory price of a 500-milliliter bottle of its flagship Cass beer by 6 percent to 1,147 won ($1) from the current 1,082 won.

This is the first time OB or other brewers have hiked prices since August 2012 when they charged nearly 6 percent more. Over the past year, beer producers have been seeking to raise prices to cope with higher costs of labor, logistics and raw materials. But no company was willing to make the first move.

"We had no choice but to hike the prices of our products by 6 percent because of rising costs, associated with the recycling of used bottles," an OB official said. "Not to mention the soaring prices of raw materials ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: AB InBev’s takeover of SABMiller is a cause for concern for Great Britain’s Campaign for Real Ale
At present, the British real ale market is flourishing, with more than 200 breweries opening in the past year, making a total of 1,540, writes Neville Grundy.

The storm cloud on the horizon is the £80 bln merger this month of the world’s two biggest brewers, AB InBev and SABMiller, who have already moved into the London craft sector.

In 2015, SABMiller bought the respected Meantime Brewery in Greenwich.

As a result of subsequent takeovers, Meantime has since been sold to Asahi of Japan. A popular local brewery is now a commodity to be traded internationally.

AB InBev has bought another London craft brewery, Camden Town, and it’s planning to make it a leading player in the capital’s beer sector, using its marketing muscle to undercut competitors. Big corporations slash costs by bulk buying of raw materials, at enormous discounts, and cutting jobs.

The merger will save around £1 billion, resulting in cheaper beer that drives other beers off bar and supermarket shelves, cutting 575 UK jobs in the process.

CAMRA’s Roger Protz said: “The way in which the global brewers are muscling in on the craft sector in Britain and other countries is a cause for concern and a potential threat to the independent sector.”
