Scientific Digest


A German research group is looking into beneficial compenents in hops to improve flavour stability. In their latest publication, they summarize their trails using CO2 extract in context with reducing the iron content in beer. In comparison to dosing the extract at the beginning of boil they tried different versions of dividing the hop dosing throughout the boil. With this they were able to reduce the iron content by about 30%, resulting in improved flavour stability not only based on analytical values but also on sensory evaluation.

Brewery news South Korea: Government recognizes necessity of efforts to support local craft breweries
As the soaring popularity for imported beer among South Korean consumers is seeing the shelves of supermarkets filled with the likes of Heineken, Asahi and Stella Artois, the government is ramping up its efforts to support South Korean beer makers in the hope of winning back the hearts of beer drinkers in the country, The Korea Bizwire reported on April 14.

South Korea’s latest move to cultivate its own brand of craft beer will see the government introduce reforms that will loosen current restrictions on beer production and distribution to boost the competitiveness of homegrown craft beers, Vice Minister of Strategy and Finance Choi Sang-mok said on April 13.

Speaking to staff members during a visit to the Playground microbrewery in Gyeonggi Province, Choi said, “Over the last five years, sales of imported beers have increased 250 percent and continue to grow. As consumers desire superior quality and taste, more microbreweries need to open and grow.”

Choi’s visit, which included a meeting with officials from a craft beer association to discuss ideas, follows in the footsteps of government plans to ease the restrictions on beer production and encourage investment in brewing that were announced at a trade investment promotion meeting last February.

Brewery news UK: Heineken to invest £20 mln to transform pubs across the UK
Heineken has announced a £20 mln investment to transform pubs across the UK, the Development Finance Today reported.

The funds will be used to upgrade Heineken’s Star Pubs & Bars estate, with around half the money earmarked for rural and suburban pubs.

Among the changes will be new kitchens, comfortable outdoor spaces and areas for events.

Lawson Mountstevens, managing director of Star Pubs & Bars, said: “Vibrant pubs are an affordable, fun place where people of all ages and backgrounds can come together.

“But as consumer demands have changed, pubs that struggled to keep pace have closed.

“We believe pubs run by skilled operators and backed by transformational investment can thrive in their role at the heart of communities.”

Some 70% of the funding will be spent on transformational projects over £100,000.

Star will also spend nearly £3 mln on maintenance and repairs this year.

Heineken’s decision follows research which found that 62% of pub goers want their local to offer good food, 37% look for a nice pub garden and 20% want to watch live sport on TV.

Over the past five years, the company has invested around £100 mln in transforming pubs across the country.
