Scientific Digest


A German research team that came up with the idea of extracting hop aroma into beer by applying a combined desorption/absorption process. The process-dependent mass transfer was predicted using two different approaches: a thermodynamic approach, and response surface modelling. The methods offer the following advantages: no beer losses, no clarification steps needed, potential reuse of hops for bittering. Using response surface methodology was clearly superior as compared to calculating the mass transfer using thermodynamic approximations.

Brewery news World: AB InBev intends to cut about 3% of total workforce after taking over SABMiller
Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV or AB InBev expects to cut about 3 per cent of the total workforce of the combined Group after its takeover of SABMiller plc, RTT-News reported on August 26.

The job reductions will be implemented gradually, in phases, over a three-year period following Completion, according to takeover documents published on August 26.

Several reports said that about 5,500 positions are likely to be eliminated.

The job cuts will form part of the $1.4 billion of annual savings that AB InBev has said it's seeking from the takeover, equivalent to almost a tenth of SABMiller's $15 billion in annual revenue.

AB InBev does not give any view on the impact of the Transaction on employment. While the extent of any job reductions in all locations is not yet certain, AB InBev's stated intention that the Combined Group will be headquartered in Leuven and will retain AB InBev's Global Functional Management Office in New York will mean that the head office functions of AB InBev and SABMiller are integrated into AB InBev's headquarters and the Global Functional Management Office following Completion.

The integration is subject to consultation with the potentially affected SABMiller employees but is likely to involve the loss of roles at SABMiller's ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Slowing growth of craft beer consumption will not benefit big beer brands
Growth in the booming U.S. craft-beer industry is slowing. But don’t expect big brewers to benefit much, the Wall Street Journal reported on August 26.

For the past half-decade or so hoppy lagers and ales from niche brands have taken substantial market share from mainstream beers such as Anheuser-Busch InBev’s Budweiser and Bud Light. Craft brews now account for about 14% of the U.S. market by volume, up from about 6% in 2009, according to research house Sanford C. Bernstein. Since craft beer is more expensive, its share of the market’s value is closer to a fifth.

But growth rates, for years reliably in double digits, have slipped this year. According to new data from Nielsen, craft sales were up just 4.5% year over year for the three months through mid-August, down from a peak of almost 20% in 2013.

Bart Watson at the Brewers Association says this is in part because craft markets in early-adopting hot spots such as Portland, Ore., and Denver, Colo., have reached maturity, with roughly 40% of all beer sales. Another factor is limited space on supermarket shelves and bar counters: Beer retailers are unlikely to stock more craft brands than they already do.

So does this spell better ...More info on site

Brewery news Jamaica: Red Stripe looking to double local beer consumption by 2019
Local brewery Red Stripe Jamaica is looking to double local beer consumption by 2019, the Jamaica Gleaner reported on August 26.

Managing Director Ricardo Nuncio says he is convinced the goal is achievable since the Jamaican market has large untapped potential. He notes that beer consumption in Jamaica is actually the lowest per capita for the whole Americas region, with the lowest being Haiti.

"When you look at the per capita consumption of beer in Jamaica, it is very low at 18 litres per year. That works out to about 1.5 litres of beer per month per person which is basically nothing when you compare to countries like Brazil, which has 70 or Mexico which has 60 or even Trinidad which has 4," Nuncio said in an interview with the Financial Gleaner.

The penetration of beer consumption in the 18 and over age category of the Jamaican market is only 77 per cent, according to Nuncio.

"You still have 23 per cent of potential consumers that are not drinking beer. Maybe they are drinking something else such as rum so the question is how we invite them to consume beer," he said.

Initially, the brewery had targeted 2020 as its goal to double local beer ...More info on site

Brewery news South Korea: South Koreans drink less beer in H1 than in the same period in 2013
The amount of alcohol consumed by South Koreans is decreasing, with fruit-flavored soft alcohol gaining in popularity, government data showed on August 26.

According to the report released by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, which surveyed 2,000 Koreans aged 15 or over, Koreans on average drank 4.9 cups of beer (about two pints) and 6.1 shots of soju, a popular grain-based liquor, at a time in the first half of this year.

These findings are a slight decrease compared to 2013 when the average beer intake was 5.6 cups and 6.4 shots of soju per person.

The intake of fruit-based drinks with low alcohol content rose from 2.2 shots per person to 6 shots on the back of growing popularity of lighter alcoholic drinks.

Since early last year, leading alcohol manufacturers such as Lotte Chilsung and its rival Muhak have rolled out a series of fruity soju products containing 14 percent alcohol, which is lower than the usual 20 percent.

The proportion of heavy drinkers also fell, which the ministry saw as an indicator of the social move towards a healthy drinking culture.

Of the surveyed, 58.3 percent showed a pattern of high-risk alcohol consumption by downing more than 8.8 shots of ...More info on site

Brewery news Australia: Heineken unveils new low-calorie Heineken 3 beer
Heineken has unveiled a low-calorie and low-carbohydrate brand extension, dubbed Heineken 3, in a push to appeal to more Australians and more usage occasions, Marketing reported on August 26.

The product launch is the first that Heineken has released in Australia since Heineken first arrived. It will be supported by a high-impact nationwide campaign with the aim of establishing the brand into the Australian market and drive trials for consumers. Australia will also be the first market globally to launch the Heineken 3 brand.

Heineken says the launch seeks to capitalise on the growing demand for premium mid-strength beer, with the company identifying huge growth potential among occasional beer drinkers in Australia.

Heineken 3 has 86 calories per bottle, five grams of carbohydrates and 3.3% ABV. The latter claim is supported by success at the World Beer Championships as best Lower Calorie lager in 2013 and 2014 and a Gold Medal at the 2015 European Beer Star Awards for best German Style Liechtbier.

Heineken says the product has proved extremely popular in early consumer trials in Australia. Heineken believes this will provide a platform to grow the premium mid-strength category in the coming months and leverage ongoing consumer trends around premiumisation and moderation. Furthermore, ...More info on site

Brewery news Australia: Workers at Carlton and United's biggest brewery walk off and raise threat of further strikes
Hundreds of workers at Carlton and United's biggest brewery walked off on August 25, and have raised the threat of further strikes against the beer giant, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Production lines came to a halt for three hours as the Abbotsford brewery's production and distribution workers attended a stop-work meeting in condemnation of the company's "trashing of Australian jobs", union officials said.

The meeting also voiced concerns that the "inexperienced" temporary labour-hire staff, brought in to replace the brewery's recently sacked maintenance crew, are jeopardising site safety. Workers are warning of "escalating action" that could threaten beer supplies to bars and bottle shops if the former staff are not reinstated.

It comes as the brewery's sacked maintenance crew continues picketing outside the gates of the plant. The dispute has gone on for 10 weeks since 55 workers lost their jobs and refused to reapply for the positions on inferior pay and conditions with a new contractor.

The feud appears to have become increasingly hostile, with Australia's workplace umpire last week moving to "de-escalate" improper conduct by banning unionists from harassing the temporary labour-hire workers.

CUB said the replacement workers had to be bussed in and out of the site every day, after some ...More info on site

Brewery news Kenya: East African Breweries enhancing outreach for raw material for its Senator Keg low end beer brand
The resurgence of low end beer brand Senator Keg has seen East African Breweries Limited (EABL) enhance its outreach for sorghum and millet framers to provide the key ingredient for the beer, Citizen TV reported on August 24.

East African Malting (EAML), a subsidiary of EABL, has recruited 12,000 farmers from Kitui, Tharaka Nithi and Embu with plans to scale up production to 30,000 tons a year.

East Africa Malting General Manager Lawrence Maina said demand for Senator Keg has risen by 113 percent of the last one year necessitating the need to contract more farmers.

“EAML partnered with KCEP in order to enhance the value chain of sorghum and millet in the three counties of Eastern region. This initiative is aligned to EABL’s grow, feed and sell campaign, which encourages farmers to grow sorghum and millet for household consumption and sell the balance, for commercial use,” Mr Maina said.

The government introduced a 50 percent excise duty on beer made from sorghum in 2014, forcing EABL to cancel supply contracts with over 25 thousand farmers.

The excise duty was later scrapped in the 2015/16 budget.

Mr Maina said contracted farmers will sign forward contracts with the company ensuring they are supplied with seeds and other ...More info on site
