Scientific Digest


For years we have learned in university that oxygen is the enemy of beer and hops, but maybe it isn't in all cases. US researchers did dry-hopping trials with Hallertau Mittelfrueh that was oxidised (2 weeks at 38 degrees Celcius with oxygen) at two levels of hopping (1.5g/L and 3.8g/L). The impact on the lower hopping rate was not so significant, but with the higher hopping rate, the beer was rated more citrusy, floral, herbal and spicy in comparison to the same beer with non-oxidised hops. There was no huge difference in preferences either... So if you brew with Hallertau Mittelfrueh, let it breathe once in a while.

Barley news Canada & USA: Barley area lower in both countries
U.S. maltsters contracted lower malting barley volumes for this year, so farmers planted less barley, especially in North Dakota, H. M. Gauger GmbH reported.

In Canada, feed barley markets came under pressure from low-quality feed wheat, farmers reacted and planted less barley this year. Much unharvested grain of crop 2016 is still in the fields and will probably not be combined at all. Very bad late winter conditions delayed most barley planting till the middle of May, 14 days later than average. However, Canadian farmers have shown in past years that they can withstand poor conditions and still harvest fair to good crops.

Brewery news Canada, ON: Brick Brewing Co. reports financial results for Q1 2017
Brick Brewing Co. Limited, the largest Canadian-owned brewery in Ontario, released on June 1 its financial results for the first quarter ended April 30, 2017.

Brick reported first quarter EBITDA of C$2.1 million on net revenue of C$11.5 million.

George Croft, Brick’s President and Chief Executive Officer commented, “We feel we’re off to a very strong start for fiscal 2018. Our Laker brand performed exceptionally well, delivering double digit volume growth and continuing the strong performance we saw last year. Waterloo continued to grow, despite the challenges of an increasingly competitive Ontario craft beer category. LandShark has quickly become a key contributor to our owner brand performance, remarkable when you consider the brand was first launched in April 2016. With the overall beer category declining approximately 1% in the first quarter, we believe we are winning market share and increasing the relevance of our brands with consumers.”

In the first quarter, Brick recorded C$319 thousand in one-time costs associated with the transfer of production from Formosa to the Kitchener facility, primarily due to severance expenses in Formosa. Brick announced in January the intention to pursue a sale and exit of the Formosa facility, targeting an exit from Formosa by September 2017.

Brewery news USA, PA: Conshohocken Brewing Company to add two new locations soon
Residents in Haverford and the surrounding area who love beer have cause to cheer, as the Conshohocken Brewing Company will be moving into the area later this year, the Haverford Patch reported on May 30.

The local brewer recently expanded its operations to include a brewpub in Bridgeport. In addition to the expansion in Havertown, the brewery also announced that they would be opening up a location in Phoenixville.

The Havertown location will be at the former Naise Cuisine spot, 13-17 W. Benedict Ave., Havertown.

"Each location will have a different concept and feel and we couldn't be more excited to join both neighborhoods!" the brewery said in an announcement on May 28.

An exact date for the opening has not yet been announced, but the brewery did say that they were tentatively aiming for the end of summer or early fall.

Conshohocken Brewing Company's rotating seasonal menu is anchored by a core of several popular beers, including Puddlers Row ESB, Type A IPA, Life Coach Session IPA, User Friendly Blonde Ale, Burn Everything Rye Porter, and Conshohocken IPA.

Brewery news USA, DE: Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant to open new location in Rehoboth Beach
Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant has announced it will open a new location along the Coastal Highway in Rehoboth Beach by the end of summer 2018, the Delaware Public Media reported on May 30.

This will be the Delaware brewery’s 14th planned location on the East Coast and third in its home state.

It will be joining fellow Delaware craft beer pioneer Dogfish Head and six other breweries in that area, helping create a craft beer destination. But Iron Hill president and founder Kevin Finn said that’s not why he chose the location.

“A lot of our customers at the Newark and Wilmington locations vacation in the Rehoboth Beach area and have actually asked for us to come to Rehoboth,” Finn said. "And one of those is my father, who has a place in Lewes and has been pestering me for 15 years to open a place in Sussex County."

The new brewery-restaurant is expected to bring around 100 full-time and part-time jobs to the Rehoboth area, depending on the season.

Iron Hill employs 225 people in the state at its New Castle County locations and its headquarters in Wilmington.

Finn said he’d love to open more brewpubs in the First State, but Delaware ...More info on site

Brewery news Canada, ON: Little Beasts Brewing under construction in Whitby
A new brewery from a pair of brewers and BJCP judges has announced that it will be opening later this year in Whitby, Canadian Beer News reported on May 29.

Little Beasts Brewing has been founded by Erin Broadfoot and John Henley, and is currently under construction at 2075 Forbes St.

Set to include small taproom and bottle shop, the brewery will open with “an assortment of Pale Ales, IPAs, Stouts and a seasonally themed line of Saisons.” A barrel-aging program is also planned for future releases.

Little Beasts is expected to open during the summer of 2017.

Brewery news USA, MD: True Respite Brewing Co. getting ready for December opening
A new brewery is coming to Montgomery County.

After years of planning, husband-and-wife team Brendan and Bailey O’Leary are expecting to open True Respite Brewing Co. in December, BethesdaMagazine.com reported.

They signed a lease on May 30 for a 9,554-square-foot space at 7301 Calhoun Place in Derwood.

The O’Learys had been hoping to open a brewery in the county since April 2014 and said they toured about 15 to 20 spaces before eventually settling on the final site, which is off Gude Drive. They liked it for its three glass walls and open look, as well as its high ceilings necessary for brewing equipment.

As its name suggests, the O’Learys hope the brewery will be a place people will go to relax. Bailey O’Leary said the interior would have a “modern adult treehouse” design to evoke the feelings of comfort and escape. This is no child’s treehouse, though—the brewery equipment will be visible from the taproom.

“We want people to come in and get the full experience of being in a brewery while still being comfortable,” she said.

True Respite joins a handful of breweries in the county, including Denizens Brewing Co. in Silver Spring, 7 Locks Brewing in Rockville and Waredaca Brewing Co. in Gaithersburg. ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, MI: ConfluxCity Brewing Co. eyeing fall opening in Portland
Jim Hilligan believes failure is key to brewing good craft beer.

In the last five years Hilligan, 31, and his wife Kiley, 32, have brewed hundreds of batches, but their first attempt, produced with a small kit they ended up with during a holiday gift exchange, "tasted horrible", the Lansing State Journal reported on May 30.

The second batch? That was better, according to Jim Hilligan.

The couple has been honing their artistic flair and learning the science of beer brewing one batch at a time since.

This fall, when they open their own brewery in a former auto repair garage and used car dealership at the corner of West Grand River Avenue and North Water Street, they’ll add everything from roasted pumpkin and butternut squash, blueberries, cinnamon sticks and bourbon-soaked vanilla beans to their creations.

ConfluxCity Brewing Co. will likely feature some of those results, including Squash Gobbler, Whittle Away and Bear Hug Porter, seasonal craft beers the Hilligans have invented together.

Go ahead and ask the Hilligans to explain the brewery’s name. They’ll be glad you asked.

It’s a play on the word “conflux,” which means a flowing together of two rivers or a coming together of people.

That honors Jim Hilligan's hometown of Portland, “the ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, NC: Westville Pub to open its own five-barrel brewhouse in Asheville
After 15 years in business on Haywood Road in Asheville, Westville Pub is set to expand its footprint by 50 percent and open its own five-barrel brewhouse, the Asheville Citizen-Times reported on May 30.

That's a significant change for owner Drew Smith, who believes the secret to longevity lies in starting simple and making small, not jarring, adjustments along the way.

"I believe in small tweaks in business in general," he said. "We deal with tons of regulars. It’s scary to even take a sandwich off the menu.”

But he says luck is on his side.

Triple Seven Brewhouse, under construction in the space next door to Westville, pays homage to the pub's address, 777 Haywood Road. The brewhouse will be in the former Center for Holistic Medicine, which has moved upstairs.

Smith imagines all those sevens have brought him luck. But good fortune can only carry a business so far.

Westville, one of the earliest of the new-guard businesses on the Haywood Road corridor, has held the neighborhood's attention by catering to its bread-and-butter: the locals.

"You do what you do, and do it well, and people will keep coming." Smith said. "When I hear people say Westville Pub is their home base, nothing could ...More info on site

Barley news USA & Mexico: Brewing team emphasizes NAFTA importance for US barley
Beer is Mexico’s top agricultural export to the United States. And Mexico purchases more U.S. barley to brew that beer than from any other market.

A team of Mexican brewing industry leaders is traveling in North Dakota and Montana this week to call attention to the policy that made this mutually beneficial trading relationship possible – the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), KTIC reported on June 1.

The team – organized by the U.S. Grains Council (USGC), the Montana Wheat & Barley Committee and the North Dakota Barley Council – includes representatives from internationally recognizable beer brands as well as Mexico’s largest craft breweries and industry representatives.

“We welcome our guests and customers to the heart of barley country,” said Kimberly Atkins, USGC vice president and chief operating officer. “NAFTA is critical to the U.S. barley industry’s success and an important story of interdependence to share with our farmers and agricultural industry here at home.”

The terms of NAFTA allow U.S. barley and malt to enter Mexico duty-free, providing a competitive advantage that has fostered an increased integration of the value chains for U.S. barley and malt and Mexican brewing industries.

Mexico purchased more than 680,000 metric tons (31.2 million bushels) of barley valued ...More info on site

Brewery news Brazil: Heineken to close down Brasil Kirin’s brewery in Rio Grande do Sul
Heineken has announced the decision to close down the brewery in Gravataí, Rio Grande do Sul, Jornal do Comércio reported on June 1.

The Dutch brewing giant made the announcement on the same day it confirmed the closure of its acquisition of Brasil Kirin.

“The decision to close the production facility in Gravataí was made on the basis of a thorough study of the asset’s viability and due to the necessity of taking the company’s business to the next level of excellence maintaining its economic sustainability,” the company said.

With the acquisition of Brasil Kirin Heineken now owns 16 breweries in Brazil and is the country’s second-largest beer maker with a market share of 20%.
