Scientific Digest


A lot of brewers are interested in enriched pellets in order to reduce the amount of vegetative material that goes into the beer. The Barth-Haas team brewed beer with Cascade hops in the forms of T90 pellets, purified T90 pellets, T70 pellets and T45 pellets. They produced dry-hopped and late-hopped ale beers and found that only in dry-hopped beers, thiols as 4MMP and 3MHA are present in detectable sensory levels. Interestingly, there was no correlation between the amount of terpenols in beer and the intensity of citrus or fruity flavour. The sum of esters correlated well with the fruity category, and the Barth-Haas team also found a good correlation of woody characteristics with analytical results.

Brewery news India: State of Maharashtra to hike beer excises by 17%
Beer sales in Maharashtra will be significantly hit by the state government’s decision to increase excise duty on the beverage by 17%. Given that Maharashtra is among the top alcohol consuming states, the increase is expected to dent the business of beer makers, Livemint reported on November 2.

Maharashtra’s excise duty increase, announced on 23 October, should result in a price hike of at least Rs20 per 330 ml bottle for the end consumer, according to industry estimates. That increase will likely kick in over the next few days as retail outlets, bars and restaurants replenish stocks.

It would then worsen the already depressed demand for beer which, along with that for other alcoholic beverages like spirits, has been hurt over the last two quarters by a Supreme Court decision to ban alcohol sales near highways.

“Clearly it will have a negative impact on the business, without a doubt. If at one shot the price of a bottle of beer goes up by 15-20%, consumers are going to reduce the amount of beer they drink and shift to hard liquor. It’s unfortunate for the beer industry and it is going to be a big setback,” said Shekhar Ramamurthy, managing director of India’s ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: AB InBev to streamline alcohol content of Budweiser in cans and bottles
Anheuser-Busch InBev is to make all of its UK Budweiser beer 4.5% abv, as it straightens out a difference in alcohol content between packaged formats and draught, local media reported.

Starting from December, Budweiser in the UK will be brewed to have the same alcohol content. Currently, cans and bottles are 4.8% while draught Budweiser is 4.3%.

A spokesperson for AB InBev said that the abv gap exists only in the UK. It is unclear why there is a difference in the country.

In a press release on November 3, the brewer said the change will streamline the brewery production process and allow consumers to "experience a consistent Budweiser brew".

About 95% of Budweiser's UK volumes are in packaged format, meaning that, overall, alcohol units will be taken out of the market. AB InBev said this was "in line with the Government's public health objectives, as well as consumer tastes for moderation and AB InBev's commitment to smart drinking".

Earlier this year, Molson Coors admitted in a UK tax tribunal that it was brewing its Carling lager at a lower abv than stated on the packaging. The move by Molson Coors did not broach legal requirements for labelling as, under UK regulations, beer is ...More info on site

Whisky news India: SAT asks Sebi to pass fresh order on additional payments by Diageo to minority shareholders of United Spirits
The Securities Appellate Tribunal has asked Sebi to expeditiously pass a fresh order in the matter relating to Diageo Plc requiring to make additional payments to the minority shareholders of United Spirits Ltd, the Economic Times reported on November 2.

Diageo became a controlling shareholder of USL - whose erstwhile promoter was now fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya - in May 2013 with 25.02 per cent stake after completion of a Rs 3,134.56 crore open offer.

Later in June 2016, markets regulator Sebi through a notice told Diageo that the company might have to make additional payments to the minority shareholders of USL on the basis of Diageo's Watson backstop guarantee agreements for Watson Ltd, a company affiliated to Mallya.

Sebi's decision was challenged before the Securities Appellate Tribunal (SAT) with Diageo contesting that the notice was misconceived and wrong in law.

"... we direct that the impugned communication dated June 16, 2016 be treated as a supplementary show cause notice issued to the appellant and direct Sebi to pass a fresh order after giving an opportunity of hearing to the appellant," the tribunal said in an order dated November 1.

While stating that Diageo can file any additional reply ...More info on site
