Scientific Digest

Fruits from the Hallertau (Part 2)

As reported previously, the new German hop varieties Polaris, Mandarina Bavaria, Muell Melon and Hallertau Blanc were used for different dry hopping trials. Now all the data is compiled in a recently published article. Here are some interesting aspects: 4 to 5 % of the alpha-acids added with dry hopping can be traced in the final beers. The transfer rate of total polyphenols is 50 - 60 % and about 70 % for low-molecular polyphenols. Transfer rates of aroma components as linalool, geraniol, 3-Methylbutyl-2-methylpropanoate and 2- Methylbutyl-2-methylpropanoate vary between 40 up to 220 % depending on variety. Here yeast may play in important role. While aging further increases the content of linalool and geraniol, almost all other aroma compenents decrease. However no correlation between sensory results and analytical values is apparent, other than all beers were significantly different..

Brewery news USA: MillerCoors decides to discontinue lime-flavoured Miller Chill
Miller Chill, the lime-flavored beer, which was once locked in a high-profile battle with Bud Light Lime, will be discontinued next year as MillerCoors focuses on other priorities, including the upcoming launches of higher-alcohol Miller Fortune and Smith & Forge Hard Cider, AdvertisingAge reported on November 12.

"We have been very vocal about our desire to evolve our portfolio to the fast-growing and higher margin segments of the beer business…especially at the high end," spokesman Jonathan Stern said in an email, referencing brands such as Redd's, Third Shift and Leinenkugel Summer Shandy. "As part of this initiative, we are trimming low-volume and low-value SKUs and brands," including eliminating Miller Chill, he confirmed. He said the moves would be "carefully managed with our distributors and chain customers on a market-by-market basis over time to ensure we maintain shelf space and replace with higher velocity SKUs."

The brewer has already discontinued Southpaw Light, a low-profile economy brand, and it will scale back another small brand called Red Dog. "Those brands are being cut to make way for these high net revenue brands and that's a big focus next year," CEO Tom Long said on a recent earnings call.

Brewery news Lebanon: Beer scene changing in Lebanon
The beer business is undergoing a renaissance as brewers increasingly take on the market leader Almaza, owned by Dutch conglomerate Heineken International. First came 961 in 2006, the brainchild of Marwan Hajjar of Gravity Brewing, which introduced a greater variety of beer to the market than commercially brewed lager. The success of 961, named after the country’s calling code, prompted Almaza to introduce a malt beer to its portfolio and, last year, Almaza Light, The Daily Star Lebanon reported on November 11.

Now there are upcoming contenders in the market, yet at opposite ends of the spectrum. One is a craft brewery producing on a microscale, while the other is entering the big leagues with a $12 million to $15 million investment in the Bekaa Valley. Both producers want to up the quality of brew on offer as well as the amount of beer being drunk.

“I consider Hajjar a pioneer of brewing in Lebanon; he likes brewing beer and has done so much for craft beer here,” said Emile Strunc, who produces his eponymous beer in Jounieh at what he calls his “nano brewery,” an 18-square-meter room with two 50-liter kettles. “We would both like to see 50 to 100 breweries ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Over 1 million homebrewers brew 2 million barrels annually
The American Homebrewers Association (AHA)—the not-for-profit trade association serving as a resource and community for homebrewers—released results of a first-ever nationwide homebrewer survey on November 12, a break-down of demographics, brewing habits and shopping behaviors of American homebrewers.

According to the survey, there are an estimated 1.2 million homebrewers in the United States, two-thirds of whom began brewing in 2005 or later.

"The homebrewing community is in every corner of the country and highly engaged in this hobby," said Gary Glass, director, American Homebrewers Association. "From the amount of money spent on supplies to the sheer number of homebrewers, it's clear this is a growing trend and people are incredibly interested in learning about and making their own brews at home."

Demographics: The average homebrewer is 40 years old, with most (60 percent) falling between 30 and 49 years old. The majority of homebrewers are married or in a domestic partnership (78 percent), have a college degree or some form of higher education (69 percent), and are highly affluent-nearly 60 percent of all homebrewers have household incomes of $75,000 or more.

Location: Homebrewers are fairly evenly spread across the country, with the slight plurality congregated in the West (31 percent), followed by the South ...More info on site

Barley news USA: Barley has become a specialty crop
Barley has gone from being a major feed grain to a specialty food crop in the last twenty-five years. While there are still a few areas, primarily corn deficient regions, in the U.S. that utilize barley for livestock, barley’s major use is for malting. This malt makes its way into many of the cereals, crackers and baked goods and of course, the beer and other malt beverages. This shift to a higher value food crop has occurred as acreage has declined and barley’s value has increased, Farm & Ranch Guide reported on November 10 citing the American Malting Barley Association data.

The acreage decline began in 1985 when barley was seeded on 13.2 million acres. It is currently averaging (2009-2013) about 3.2 million acres. This decline has resulted in significant shifts in barley production and procurement. In the mid-1980s, the brewers, distillers and food companies using malted barley were able to select from a large pool of barley grown in the northern plains and intermountain west. Most of this barley was produced on the open market with some of irrigated acreage being contracted by end users.
