Scientific Digest


This is a complex question but worth being explored. In a study, German researchers tested two different yeast strains (German ale yeast vs US ale yeast) using an identical hopping regime for late and dry hopping (during primary fermentation) with varieties US Cascade and German Hallertau Mittelfrueh. Comprehensive sensory evaluation and aroma analytics showed that the sum of terpenols was independent from the sensory intensity for floral and citrus. The sum of esters correlated well with the intensity of sweet fruit flavours, and higher amounts of 4MMP correlated well with red berry flavor intensity. The final analysis found that the yeast strain can have a significant influence on dry hop aroma.

BreweryBrewery News Brewery

Brewery news USA: Beer remains the preferred alcoholic beverage in Gallup’s trend
Americans who drink alcohol continue to say they most often choose beer (40%) over wine (30%) and liquor (26%). Beer has typically been the preferred alcoholic beverage in Gallup's trend, Gallup reported on July 19.

The latest results are from a July 5-9 update of Gallup's annual Consumption Habits poll. Gallup has found that beer is most popular among men; this year, 62% of male drinkers say they prefer beer, compared with 19% of female drinkers. Less-educated and middle-income Americans also tend to choose beer.

For the past two decades, at least three in 10 drinkers have said they prefer wine, peaking at 39% in 2005. Wine was slightly less popular in the early to mid-1990s. Women are significantly more likely than men to prefer wine, at 50% vs. 11%, respectively. This beverage is also preferred more among college-educated adults.

The 26% of drinkers who name liquor as their beverage of choice is the highest in Gallup's 25-year trend, but similar to the 24% recorded in 2004. The percentage naming liquor has typically been closer to 20%. Future measurements will help determine whether the current figure marks the beginning of a trend toward an increased preference for liquor.

Brewery news India: Diageo to withhold payment of remaining $35 mln to Vijay Mallya
British liquor giant Diageo has decided to withhold remaining $35 million due to Vijay Mallya as part of the $75 million (Rs 515 crore) sweetheart deal for his exit from United Spirits Ltd, Times of India reported on July 17 citing a source familiar with the development.

Also, Diageo is looking to recover dues from the fugitive businessman, who is wanted in India with regard to cases of loan default and diversion of funds.

Diageo had last year paid $40 million to Mallya as part of its payout package.

"They have decided not to pay the remaining $35 million as there was violation of terms of agreement by the other side," a source said on the condition of anonymity.

The British liquor giant was supposed to pay the remaining $35 million in two equal amounts.

The source, however, refused to share the conditions of their "terms of agreement", which were violated by Vijay Mallya.

In July 2016, United Spirits disclosed Rs 1,225.3 crore worth fund diversion and improper transactions with entities associated with Mallya including Kingfisher Airlines and his Formula One team.

Making it clear that the settlement reached earlier with Mallya would cover the latest disclosures, USL - now controlled by Diageo - had said the ...More info on site

Brewery news Spain: Mahou San Miguel invests EUR2.8 mln in its Beteta facility last year
Spanish brewing company Mahou San Miguel has announced that it invested €2.8 million in its Beteta facility in 2016, ESM reported on July 17.

The plant, which is located in the Cuenca province, was subject to 31 different projects last year, aimed at modernising the production facility to boost reliability, performance and sustainability.

These projects included remodelling one of its PET packaging lines for Solán de Cabras water, and the installation of a real-time industrial software programme.

Since its opening in 2011, over €17.8 million has been invested in the plant, which has reduced its water consumption by 39%, energy by 26%, and CO2 emissions by 47% in the last six years.

In 2016, its efforts in this area focused on the development of products and packaging to make them more sustainable and reduce their environmental impact.

"Every year we strive to equip our facilities with the latest technology available to help us ensure that the excellent properties and purity of our product arrive intact to our consumers," said José Manuel Paniagua, director of Betata plant.

Brewery news Bulgaria: Carlsberg Bulgaria’s market share up 4.6% in H1 2017
The Bulgarian unit of Danish brewer Carlsberg said on July 18 its market share in terms of volume grew by 4.6 percentage points year-on-year to 30.3% in the first half of 2017, SeeNews reported.

The company’s sales in terms of volume increased by an annual 18% in the January-June period, Carlsberg Bulgaria said in a statement.

Carlsberg’s leading local brand – Pirinsko - increased its sales volume by an annual 14% during the review period. Pirinsko’s market share rose by 2.3 percentage points to 18.3% in the first half of 2017.

The sales volume of Carlsberg’s other big local brand – Shumensko - rose 31% year-on-year, giving it a market share of 10.1%.

Carlsberg's main competitors on the Bulgarian market are Heineken, through its local unit Zagorka, and Molson Coors which owns the Kamenitsa brewery.

Carlsberg operates two breweries in Bulgaria - in Blagoevgrad and Shumen.

Carlsberg acquired a majority stake in the Shumen brewery, in northeastern Bulgaria in 2002. Later that same year Carlsberg became the majority owner of the brewery in Blagoevgrad, in southwestern Bulgaria. The two breweries were merged into Carlsberg Bulgaria in 2004. They have a combined annual production capacity of 1.8 million hectolitres.

Brewery news India: AB InBev banking on Budweiser to extend reach to smaller Indian cities
Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world’s largest brewer, is banking on its popular Budweiser brand of beer to extend its reach to smaller Indian cities in the second phase of expansion, Livemint reported on July 17.

“Budweiser is the brand that helps us lead our overall play here in India,” AB InBev marketing director Kartikeya Sharma said in an interview. “I think I can say Budweiser will continue to be a big bet. India has started to become one of the biggest markets for Budweiser globally.”

AB InBev, which operates as Crown Beers India Ltd, began selling Budweiser in India in 2007, positioning the beer as a premium American pale lager, in contrast to its college-student popular image in the US.

The firm, which started manufacturing Budweiser in India in 2010, reported a revenue of Rs238 crore in FY15, according to data from the Registrar of Companies (RoC). This is a long way from its initial revenue of Rs3.49 lakh in FY08, as per its first reported set of financials according to data from the RoC.

However, the company is yet to turn profitable, posting an operational loss of nearly Rs60 crore in FY14-15, and a total loss of nearly Rs200 crore (after adding loss carried ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Heineken partners with U.S. Beverage to expand offer of specialty brands to the US market
Beer importer U.S. Beverage will now serve as the U.S. importer of certain specialty brands owned by Heineken N.V. via a new deal the two companies announced July 19, CSPDailyNews,com reported.

"After an extensive review of our U.S. importation organizations and as a result of the evolution of the U.S. market, we are excited to partner with U.S. Beverage in our strategy to build our extensive portfolio of specialty international brands," said Jose Luis Lopez Portillo, export director of Heineken Americas Export.

Initially, U.S. Beverage will bring eight beers from around the world to the United States. They include: Dragon Stout (Jamaica) Krusovice (Czech Republic) Zagorka (Bulgaria) Gosser (Austria) Bintang (Bali, Indonesia) Zajecarsko (Serbia) Cruzcampo (Spain) Alfa (Greece)

Other brands may be added over time and “may include brands from Europe, Latin America, South America and [Southeast] Asia.” The deal does not include brands that are handled by Heineken USA or its affiliate Five Points Trading Co.

"Heineken has partnered with U.S. Beverage in part for a number of years and has proven itself as a builder of premium brands throughout the United States,” Portillo said. “We are quite confident and excited that our partnership will provide national growth in the important U.S. market."
