Scientific Digest


To compare the energy consumption of hop drying is part of a holistic sustainability review of hop production. This US team looked into the general sustainability challenges in beer production including hops production. Sustainability is often thought of solely in context of the environment, but it is recognized to encompass the integration of economic development, social development, and environmental protection, which are referred to as the three pillars of sustainability. If we look at it from an environmental perspective the method of LCA (life cycle analysis) is often used, which means to look at the different parts/ingredients from "cradle to grave". The brewery in general is a large consumer of water and energy. Published figures are 8-12 kWH, 5hl of water 150 MJ of fuel energy to produce 1 hl of beer plus 13.6 kg of spent grain and 4 kg of spent yeast produced. Speaking in Carbon foot print a published study indicates that packaging accounts for 40%, and raw materials for 22% (mainly barley). Although the impact of hops was found to be small in this review, the quantity of hops required for brewing hop forward beers is much higher. A beer with 110 g of hops/hl of beer can equal 0.2% of the total carbon footprint. A tenfold usage of hops of 1.1kg/hl beer would mean 2% of the total carbon footprint. Parameters for hops production are machinery, irrigation, fertilization, soil emissions and pesticides usage and kilning. Overall estimates of emissions equivalents ranged from ~3.5 to 5.5 kg of CO2e per kilogram of hops in all cases, estimates were substantially higher than literature values for the production of malt on a kilogram per kilogram basis, which were reported by TCC as 0.91 kg of CO2e per kilogram. Meanwhile the hop industry is providing sustainability reports.

Brewery news Brazil: Coca-Cola Femsa and Heineken announce end of distribution arbitration in Brazil
Coca-Cola Femsa SAB de CV and Heineken NV announced late on October 31 the end of an arbitration on contracts of beer distribution in Brazil favorable to Femsa, Reuters reported.

Both companies said beverages produced by Cervejaria Kaiser, acquired by Heineken in 2010, will continue to be distributed by Coca Cola bottlers in Brazil through 2022.

With the arbitration decision, Heineken will have to keep two separate distribution networks for its beers in Brazil, the Kaiser system and one it purchased from Kirin Holdings Co in 2017.

The Dutch company initiated an arbitration two years ago seeking to end the contracts sooner to unify its distribution.

Brewery news World: AB InBev brewing Corona outside of Mexico to meet ever-increasing demand
Corona started local production on markets outside Mexico due to the need of its owner Anheuser-Busch InBev of satisfying high demand and solving supplies problems, The Yucatan Times reported on October 30.

“The decision of producing Corona locally allows us to increase market availability and to provide a better service to our clients in terms of delivery time. In the third place, it offers more variety in terms of SKU and we also rationalize our logistics and, by doing so, we reduce our carbon footprint, something Corona consumers deeply care about,” said Carlos Brito, CEO of the multinational brewery.

After AB InBev purchased Grupo Modelo in 2013, all Mexican brands now belong to the Belgian-Brazilian corporate, which had already had an impact on the Mexican origin of the brand. Moving its production to China could further affect the brand’s identity.

AB InBev produces part of its global beers in different markets: Budweiser in China, Stella Artois in Brazil, and Bud Light in Mexico.

Brito said that “Corona has grown and it has been increasingly demanded by consumers all over the world, with fast growth, outside Mexico and it grew 21% this trimester.”

“To begin Corona’s production in all the world, we have a Mexican master ...More info on site

Brewery news Kenya: Diageo relying on “backward integration” in Kenya
It is 4pm in a country pub on the outskirts of Kisumu, a port on Lake Victoria. The establishment, set in fields off the main road, is built of crude brick with a tin roof. Inside the spacious yellow interior, which is round like a traditional hut, bottles of beer and spirits are ranged on shelves in a serving area protected by steel bars. At this hour there are just two men sat on barstools. A third, seated apart at a table, is slowly sipping a half-pint of dark beer through a straw, the Financial Times reported on October 31.

The beer in question is Senator Keg, a draught brew developed by Diageo, a UK-based drinks multinational, as a cheap alternative to bottled beer and what John O’Keeffe, the president of Diageo Africa, calls “a ladder” to the company’s costlier brands, including Tusker and Guinness.

Senator Keg comes in two varieties, a lager priced at Ks35 for a half-pint — roughly 35 US cents — and the less expensive darker version, which costs about a quarter of a bottled beer.

Distributed in 50-litre metal barrels and produced from locally grown white sorghum, it is manufactured in a $140m state of the art brewery ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Hoegaarden’s non-alcoholic beer expanding to the US
Hoegaarden’s non-alcoholic beer is expanding beyond Europe: with pilots in Rochester and Philadelphia in the US currently under way. While Europe has been leading the low and no ABV beer category, Anheuser-Busch believes the US will catch up, BeverageDaily.com reported on October 31.

Known in Europe as Hoegaarden 0.0, the non-alcoholic brew is already firmly established in Europe (no and low alcohol versions now make up half of Hoegaarden's Belgian retail volumes) and is expanding globally (such as with its launch in India earlier this year).

The brand is now looking to the US: with the current pilot helping it understand what American consumers want from the alcohol-free category.

It’s already seen interest from soft drink consumers looking for something new and healthier; while also opening up drinking occasions outside the traditional beer space.

The brand's history goes back some 600 years, with the Belgian wheat beer Hoegaarden White initially brewed by monks in the town of Hoegaarden.

Hoegaarden White (4.9% ABV) is widely available in the US: but Hoegaarden Soft Brew is the first non-alcoholic version to be introduced in the country.

It is using the same recipe as Hoegaarden 0.0 in Europe, but with a different name and different packaging for the ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Brewers say pre-Christmas strike by drinks delivery company not to affect pubs’ stocks
Workers at a UK drinks delivery company – with customers including Carlsberg, Coors, Greene King and Mitchells & Butlers – have agreed to strike in the run-up to Christmas, the Morning Advertiser reported on October 31.

Logistics company Tradeteam said there would be no impact on deliveries to customers in the event of strike action at its Enfield depot in north London.

However, union Unite said a “rolling programme of strike dates” yet to be announced by drivers, draymen and warehouse staff would hit Tradeteam customers in the lead-up to Christmas.

Around 100 workers voted for action over what Unite described as a lack of managerial good faith over pay discussions.

Employees agreed to strike after an agreement for a pay increase fell through, with 65% of workers at the Millmarsh Lane site voting for action.

Brewing companies Molson Coors and Carlsberg said that pubs’ stocks would not be hit by any action and they remained hopeful strikes could be avoided.

A spokesperson for Molson Coors said: “We’re disappointed with the ballot result but, in the event a strike goes ahead, we’ll be working closely with Tradeteam to ensure continuity of supply for our customers.

“We know that talks between Tradeteam and Unite ...More info on site
