Scientific Digest


For this study a group of US researchers have chosen two very different varieties, Simcoe and Hallertau Mittelfrueh, and brewed beers using the following different hopping regimes: 60 min boil, 25 min whirlpool, or 48 h dry hopping. Additionally, the impact of the yeast strains used on treatment was investigated. Each treatment was compared with an unhopped control using stir-bar sorptive extraction GC-MS with a descriptive sensory analysis. Results indicate that whirlpool additions produced beers with the highest concentrations of geraniol, linalool, and beta-citronellol, which is in line with intense citrus flavours one often achieves with high whirpool additions. Beers with Simcoe produced more intense and individually distinct aromas with each hopping regime compared to the Hallertau Mittelfrueh hopped beers. Conversely, beers brewed with Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops showed less intense aromas with less distinction, except for the dry-hopped treatment, which was characterized by a more floral type of aroma than the other Hallertau Mittelfrueh treatments. So find out which time of addition suits best your favourite variety!

Brewery news Canada: Brewers lobby group Beer Canada upset about new taxing ways
Beer Canada, the brewers lobby group that styles itself as “the national voice of beer,” is not happy with the federal government and its taxing ways, Maclean’s reported on June 8.

In its recent 2017 budget, Ottawa hiked excise taxes on beer, wine and spirits by two per cent. No big deal there. Canadians are used to sin tax hikes at budget time. What’s new is that the federal Liberals have now given themselves the right to increase this tax every year by the rate of inflation—without the bother of having to include the future tax hikes in subsequent budgets.

“We weren’t expecting this at all,” says Luke Harford, president of Beer Canada, of the permanently escalating tax. “It’s pretty cynical.”

Nearly 50 per cent of the price of beer in Canada, on average, is tax: either federal or provincial excise and sales taxes, or provincial liquor board markups. It’s one of the highest overall beer tax rates in the world. And now Ottawa’s take is going up automatically every year on April 1. Forever.

On a cash basis, the amounts involved appear modest. That two-per-cent increase is about 5 cents more per case of 24 beers. But Harford is quick to point out ...More info on site

Brewery news New Zealand: DB Breweries announces 8% increase in annual profit last year
New Zealand’s DB Breweries, whose managing director Andy Routley this week announced his exit, lifted annual profit 8 per cent in 2016 as the country's second-biggest liquor company fattened gross margins in the face of largely flat revenue, the New Zealand Herald reported on June 9.

The local liquor company owned by Dutch brewing giant Heineken reported net profit of NZ$27.1 million in calendar 2016, up from NZ$25.1 mln a year earlier, financial statements lodged with the Companies Office show. Revenue rose 2.7 per cent to NZ$499.9 mln, recovering some ground from 2015 when sales were down, while the cost of excise duty, raw materials and packaging edged up 0.1 per cent to NZ$284.7 mln. That helped widen DB's gross margin to 43 per cent from 42.1 per cent in 2015.

DB has been grappling with falling beer consumption and a growing demand for boutique products, with sales of craft beer on the rise. That's spurred the likes of DB and rival Lion to buy their smaller craft beer rivals, the most recent being DB's acquisition of Tuatara Brewing Co in January.

The latest accounts acknowledge the acquisition after the December 31 balance date, while keeping the price paid secret, and saying the ...More info on site

Brewery news Tanzania: Brewers worried about increase in excise duty on beer and spirits
An excise duty rise on beer and spirits can lead to an increase in the consumption of illicit brews and subsequent reduction in company earnings and government revenues, brewing industry players warn.

Serengeti Breweries Limited (SBL) corporate relations director John Wanyancha said the excise duty on beer and spirits is normally passed on consumers. When it is high the prices increase, AllAfrica.com reported on June 8.

But consumers failing to afford the drink turn to illicit brews.

"That can impact negatively on brewing companies as volume sales may decrease, with subsequent fall in government revenues."

He warned that the consumption of illicit brews could endanger health.

He called on the government to maintain the tax concession on local raw materials.

According to him, currently beer companies that source all their raw materials locally are given a 40 per cent tax concession compared with beers that are produced from foreign materials.

He called on the government to maintain that to foster growth of agriculture.

"This encourages more people to grow, barley, wheat, maize and millet because they are assured of a ready market."

Tanzania Breweries Limited (TBL) officials were not available to comment on the matter.

Meanwhile the Confederation of Tanzania Industries (CTI) shares SBL’s opinion that an increase in excise ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan: Japan’s brewers racing to develop new uniquely flavoured beers ahead of changes in tax laws
Japan’s craft beer makers and major brewers are racing to develop new uniquely flavored malt beverages to take advantage of pending changes in the nation’s tax law governing alcohol production, The Japan Times reported on June 9.

The use of fruits, spices and other ingredients such as dried bonito will be allowed in beer production starting in April 2018, following a change under the liquor tax law defining of what constitutes an alcoholic beverage.

Currently, beer ingredients are limited mainly to malt, hops, corn and rice. Beverages that include other materials are currently available, but they have to be labeled happoshu (quasi-beer).

Under the new definition, products using newly permitted ingredients can be categorized as beer unless the proportion of the ingredient to the amount of malt exceeds 5 percent.

Both regional craft beer makers, many of which are experienced at making unique products, and major brewers are moving to take advantage of the expanded definition, at a time when the domestic beer market has been slumping.

After the deregulation, “Suiyoubi No Neko,” a beverage made by Yo-Ho Brewing Co. in Karuizawa, Nagano Prefecture, using orange peel and coriander seeds will likely be reclassified as beer from happoshu.

“Labeling has effects on sales and brand images,” ...More info on site

Barley news Germany: Brewers protest against Carlsberg and Heineken patenting a strain of barley
Dozens of protesters, six brewery horses and a marching band have demonstrated in front of the European Patent Office (EPO) in Munich to object to a patent by beer giants Carlsberg and Heineken, Deutsche Welle reported on June 7.

In 2016, the two companies jointly patented a strain of barley that improved the taste of beer and allows for a more energy-efficient brewing process.

The beer patents haven't gone down well with Germans, a nation proud of its centuries-old tradition of barley cultivation and beer brewing. Breweries fear financial losses if patents on crops become the new norm, and activists believe food security is under threat.

In November, No Patents on Seeds, an international coalition including Greenpeace, the Catholic charity Misereor and 300 farmers, urged Carlsberg and Heineken in an open letter to drop their patents. But the companies stood firm.

So, the coalition decided to take to the streets.

On June 7, the last day to officially object to one of the patents of the beer giants, around 100 protesters came with big fanfare and turned the technical duty of filing an objection at the EPO into a beer festival.

Surrounded by music, the organizers of the protest handed out non-alcoholic beer to ...More info on site
