Scientific Digest


A lot of brewers are interested in enriched pellets in order to reduce the amount of vegetative material that goes into the beer. The Barth-Haas team brewed beer with Cascade hops in the forms of T90 pellets, purified T90 pellets, T70 pellets and T45 pellets. They produced dry-hopped and late-hopped ale beers and found that only in dry-hopped beers, thiols as 4MMP and 3MHA are present in detectable sensory levels. Interestingly, there was no correlation between the amount of terpenols in beer and the intensity of citrus or fruity flavour. The sum of esters correlated well with the fruity category, and the Barth-Haas team also found a good correlation of woody characteristics with analytical results.

Brewery news USA: Light beer sales continue to shrink
The last few years have not been kind to macro light beer in the U.S. Although multinational beer conglomerates such as AB InBev continue to push their brews into new markets on an international level, the “homefront” of formerly U.S.-owned companies such as Anheuser Busch has presented a much tougher challenge. Facing saturation and an overall shrinking beer market, not to mention the increasing market share of craft beer, “super premium” brands such as Bud Light, Miller Lite and Coors Light have all struggled at times, the Paste Magazine reported on October 31.

New numbers about those struggles, as well as some first-hand quotes, came on October 31 via an interesting Chicago Tribune story, which interviews people in the distribution business about some of the declining shipments.

All in all, light beer products from AB InBev and MillerCoors have declined by roughly 26 million total barrels of beer since the light beer market peaked around 2008, according to Beer Marketer’s Insights, an industry trade publication. That volume has flowed into a bevy of other markets, from craft beer and imported Mexican beer brands, to wine and spirits.

Brewery news Nigeria: Guinness Nigeria Plc’s N40 bln rights issue records full subscription
Guinness Nigeria Plc has secured additional N39.7 billion new equity funds from its existing shareholders as shareholders picked up the entire rights offered by the brewer, The Nation Newspaper reported on October 30.

Guinness Nigeria had offered 684.49 million ordinary shares of 50 kobo each at N58 per share to existing shareholders on the basis of five new shares for every 11 shares held as at the close of business on March 15, 2017. Application list for the rights issue opened on July 24, 2017 and closed on August 30, 2017.

Listing documents at the weekend showed that 684.49 million ordinary shares of 50 kobo each were added to shares outstanding in the names of Guinness Nigeria. With the listing, total issued and fully paid up shares of Guinness Nigeria has now increased from 1.5 billion shares to 2.19 billion shares.

Diageo Plc, United Kingdom (UK), the majority core investor in Guinness Nigeria, was expected to inject additional N21 billion in Guinness Nigeria by subscribing for its rights. The rights issue provided another window for Diageo to inject capital into the Nigerian subsidiary after the multinational backed down from its earlier proposal to acquire additional equity shares in Guinness Nigeria.

Brewery news Mexico: Grupo Modelo to start exporting beer brewed at its Yucatan facility
Grupo Modelo’s Hunucmá plant in Yucatan will begin its beer exports to Europe and Africa in the second half of November, The Yucatan Times reported on October 30.

The Secretary of Economic Development of the State (Sefoe), Ernesto Herrera Novelo, the company’s exports will be shipped to European and African countries, as well as to the United States market.

“Grupo Modelo will send six thousand containers of the Corona, Modelo, Victoria, León and Montejo brands to the international market. The beer in question is produced at Modelo’s Hunucma plant, which currently brews seven million hectolitres, but will reach 15 million hectolitres per year in the medium term,” he said.

“The industrial plant of the Modelo plans to reach a production of 1.9 billion bottles of beer per year, of which 14% will be exported to Canada, Colombia, Guatemala, Belize, Chile, the United Kingdom and Belgium.”

Brewery news USA: Constellation Brands prices offering of senior notes
Constellation Brands, Inc., a leading beverage alcohol company, announced on October 31 that it priced the public offering of $2.0 billion aggregate principal amount of Senior Notes, consisting of (i) $600.0 million of 2.000% Senior Notes due 2019 (the “2019 notes”) for a public offering price of 99.860% of the principal amount of the 2019 notes; (ii) $700.0 million of 2.250% Senior Notes due 2020 (the “2020 notes”) for a public offering price of 99.804% of the principal amount of the 2020 notes; and (iii) $700.0 million of 2.650% Senior Notes due 2022 (the “2022 notes”) for a public offering price of 99.582% of the principal amount of the 2022 notes (collectively, the “notes”).

Hops news USA: Climate change affecting hop and beer industries in the US
There’s trouble brewing for beer makers around the United States, CBSMiami reported on October 31.

Climate change and intense droughts are making it difficult for breweries to get the crucial ingredients they need to make their customer’s favorite beer.

At one of Los Angeles’ fastest growing breweries, keeping up with demand is a struggle.

“It’s incredibly, incredibly stressful,” said Co-Owner of Frogtown Brewery Mike Voss.

Voss says much of that stress comes from having to hunt for critical ingredients like hops.

Most of the country’s hops are grown in Washington, Oregon and Idaho – states that have suffered increasingly severe droughts in recent years.

That’s crippled crops and is leading to shortages.

With the mega beer producers gobbling up most of the supply, smaller craft breweries are left scrambling.

“Every month we try to figure out where we can get what we need to make a particular beer,” said Voss.

And if they don’t find it, he says, “You don’t make the beer.”

Producers are now trying to grow hops in other states but it is a slow process.

“Changes in temperature, changes in how plants grow,” said NASA JPL Climate Scientist Dr. Joshua Fisher.

Fisher says climate change is making droughts more intense.

“We are reaching this kind of tipping point ...More info on site
