Scientific Digest


A Japanese research group has been hunting the mystery of hop aroma in beer for a long time. In this recent work they brewed late hopped and dry hopped beers with 18 different hop varieties! From the U.S. they looked at Apollo, Bravo, Citra, Mosaic and Summit. From Germany were Hallertau Blanc, Huell Melon, Mandarina Bavaria and Polaris. Then from New Zealand were Kohatu, Motueka, Nelson Sauvin, Pacific Jade, Rakau, Riwaka, Southern Cross, Wai-iti and Wimea. The researchers were looking for varietal differences especially in different monoterpene alcohols. They found no varietal differences in beta-ionone and nerol content, but did see variations in the other components studied - but the differences were not coherent. Things are never easy with hops!

Brewery news India: United Breweries may be pressured to force out Vijay Mallya from the board
The board of India's largest beverage maker United Breweries, owned jointly by Heineken and the beleaguered Vijay Mallya, has become edgy over the growing possibility of local lenders turning off the lending facility as a pressure tactic to force the erstwhile liquor baron to repay his dues, Economic Times reported on March 9.

A top official close to the development said in case banks send them an official communication, the board would be under pressure to seek an exit for Mallya from the board.

Mallya, who sold roughly 35% to Heineken in late 2000, is chairman of the board with representatives from the Belgium beverage maker.

"Mallya has not defaulted on any United Breweries loans so there is no reason to ask him to go now," said a senior board official. "But SBI and Yes Bank are among our major lenders and if they take a decision on UB, we will have to move fast on that."

A covenant in the loan agreements with the companies to which the banks have funded says the borrowing company should not induct on its board a person whose name appears in the list of wilful defaulters and that in case such a person is found to ...More info on site

Brewery news Malawi: SABMiller’s Chibuku beer plant allowed to resume production
The suspension order banning Chibuku production and distribution due to hygienic concerns has now been lifted, Malawi Bureau of Standards (MSB) announced on March 8.

MSB banned production and distribution of Chibuku shake shake opaque beer for Lilongwe plant on March 2 following a health inspection exercise that found the SABMiller unit was producing beer unfit for human consumption.

“The MBS wishes to inform the general public that it has uplifted the suspension order on production and distribution of Chibuku Shake Shake opaque beer for Lilongwe plant.

“The lifting of the suspension order follows verification audits conducted by the MBS inspectors on 4th and 5th March, 2016 which found that the company has addressed the hygienic conditions of their factory as required by Malawi Standard 21” reads a statement by Malawi Bureau of Standards.

The opaque beer is brewed in Malawi by Chibuku Products Limited (CPL), a subsidiary of SABMiller. CPL came under fire last year when it emerged that the company was discharging effluent into rivers, an act that was poisoning water for consumption.

Brewery news India: The Debt Recovery Tribunal bars Vijay Mallya from accessing exit payment from Diageo
In a major setback for liquor baron Vijay Mallya, the Debt Recovery Tribunal (DRT) on March 7 barred him from accessing USD 75 million (Rs 515 crore) exit payment from Diageo till the loan default case with State Bank of India is settled, The Times of India reported.

DRT, allowing SBI plea, restrained Diageo from disbursing the money for now and set March 28 as the next date of hearing.

SBI had sought DRT's intervention in seeking the lenders' first right on the USD 75-million payout from Diageo to Mallya as part of deal last month.

Under the deal Mallya was to step down as chairman of India's top spirits company United Spirits Ltd in a settlement with its new owner, Britain's Diageo. Mallya was to settle down in London after the deal.

SBI had filed three other applications, including one seeking Mallya's arrest and impounding of his passport, it approached DRT seeking action against him for defaulting on loans.

DRT, in its order restraining Diageo from disbursing USD 75 billion, said the amount has been attached pending disposal of original application.

It directed Mallya and the companies concerned to disclose the details of the terminal agreement.

Brewery news Myanmar: Carlsberg may face lawsuit for not removing the words ‘tu po’ from its Tuborg beer
The family of Myanmar composer Myoma Nyein threatened a lawsuit against Carlsberg Myanmar for not removing the words ‘tu po’ from its Tuborg beer within a “reasonable time”, The Nation reported on March 6.

Relatives of the composer demanded the phrase be removed within a week at the press conference on January 15 and apologies in newspapers, among others.

They called for three days of apologies in newspapers, a pledge not to use the phrase again on its beer bottles or cans and to give a date by which the phrase would have disappeared from shop shelves.

Zaw Myo Oo, a grandson of Myoma Nyein and son of artist Paw Oo Thet, said at the press conference last week: "The company did not apologise in newspapers. It did not withdraw the products which had been distributed already or say when the phrase 'tu po' would be totally removed. It just said it would be removed but took no further action for us. We are going to make a legal claim. We want the world to know that a company like Carlsberg uses the art of Myanmar, which has a weak legal system, without accountability."
