Scientific Digest

The elegant way of dry hopping

Dry hopping is fun but also, you have to admit, a bit messy. These German researchers were looking for a way to dry hop without actually dry hopping. They established a process that works with sequenced desorption and absorption to transfer hop volatiles into beer. Hop volatile desorption from a hop-water mixture is forced by a stripping gas followed with a transfer in the gas stream to an absorption medium. The system, operating in a closed loop, was tested with both water and beer. This novel method features an easy to implement and cost-effective method for transferring hop aroma compounds into beer without directly bringing the beer in contact with hop solids that, for example, may introduce filtration and clarification problems. With a transfer rate for linalool of 65% within 24 hours, why not give it a try ?

Brewery news USA: Strong dollar does not reduce global thirst for US craft beer
A strong dollar may be harming the competitiveness of US exports but it has failed to damp the world’s thirst for US-brewed craft beer, The Financial Times reported on April 5.

Led by increased consumption in Europe and emerging markets, total exports of US craft beer surged 36 per cent in 2014, topping $100 mln for the first time ever.

“The growth is being driven by the beer drinker,” said Bob Pease, president of the Brewers Association, which represents small, independently owned brewers in the US. “The American craft beer revolution is not restricted to the US. It’s a global phenomenon.”

Though trade in the product hardly existed just a decade ago as US brewers struggled to satisfy domestic demand, exports have posted double-digit growth in recent years as brewers have expanded their production capacity.

Backed by a US Department of Agriculture grant and, in some cases, the Export-Import Bank, more than 80 US craft brewers exported in 2014, increasing their sales to Brazil by 64 per cent over the previous year and to the Asia-Pacific region by 38 per cent. Sales to Western Europe and Canada were also up 37 per cent and 32 per cent, respectively.

Mr Pease pointed out that brewing tastes ...More info on site

Brewery news The Czech Republic: Pivovary Staropramen increases beer sales both at home and abroad last year
In 2014, Czech brewer Pivovary Staropramen registered increase in shipments to both the domestic and foreign markets, selling almost 3.16 mln hl in total, Radio Prague reported on April 3.

As compared to 2013, sales increased by almost 15 thousand hl.

The surge in shipments is attributed to higher demand for the company’s brands abroad and for growth in sales of the Bráník brand in the Czech Republic.

Canned beer sales increased by 26% as compared to 2013, the company said.

Controlled by North American brewing giant Molson Coors, Pivovary Staropramen is the Czech Republic’s second-largest beer maker after SABMiller-owned Pilsner Urquell, which increased sales by 4.5% to 10 mln hl last year. The nation’s third-largest brewer is Heineken, which has not made public the data on its performance last year.

Brewery news UK: Bottled beer taking increased share of SIBA members’ sales
A report from the Society of Independent Brewers shows bottled beer taking an increasing share of its members’ sales, Off-Licence News reported on April 7.

The report, based on a survey of members, showed that more small brewers are producing beer in bottles and cans, with cask ale as a proportion of total SIBA production falling from 84% in 2013 to 71% last year.

The figure is forecast to drop again, to 68%, by the end of 2015.

But there is still plenty of room for take-home growth with less than 10% of SIBA members’ total production going into bottles. Only one in 10 makes bottle-conditioned beers.

The report came as SIBA launched its first strategic plan, which outlines the further development of the organisation’s Direct Delivery Scheme in the off-trade as part of aims to assist the commercial performance of members.

The scheme currently buys beer from more than 500 breweries and sells it on to 18 pubcos and off-trade retailers. The SIBA strategic plan also includes a scheme to provide a canning service for members as part of the body’s vision to “deliver the future of British beer and become the voice of British brewing”, through campaigning, providing commercial opportunities for members and ...More info on site
