Scientific Digest


Hops have to be treated with pesticides, otherwise a supply of sufficient quantity and quality is unrealistic. Also the development in detection methods has lead to increasingly low detection limits. Together with the Team of HVG, Barth-Haas experts looked into the transfer rates of hop pesticides from hops into beer with different hopping loads. Pesticides show a wide range from zero to good solubility in beer with transfer rates from hops to beer ranging from 10% to 82%. These levels were found in kettle hopped and dry hopped beers, meaning that there is no significant reduction of pesticides from wort to beer. The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) sets maximum residue levels (MRLs) and confirms that there is no danger for consumers.

Brewery news USA: Constellation Brands posts 6% net sales growth in Q1
Constellation Brands, the US distributor of Corona and Modelo beer, has published first-quarter net sales of $2.05 billion – 6% stronger than the same period last year.

Operating income stood at $625 million, which was an 11% improvement on last year, while gross profit rose 6% to $1.05 billion.

The company has affirmed its full-year cash flow target of approximately $2.45 billion and free cash flow projection of between $1.2 billion and $1.3 billion.

Rob Sands, chief executive of Constellation Brands, said: “Our first-quarter results are consistent with our expectations for the business and reflect planned investments in innovation for key brands, digital enablement, emerging opportunities, and operational efficiencies.”

They include Constellation’s decision to invest $190 million in Canopy Growth Corporation, a Canadian supplier of medicinal marijuana, ahead of the country’s change of law on recreational cannabis use this month; as well as the sale of its remaining interest in Accolade Wine.

“We expect these investments to yield excellent returns well into the future,” Sands said. “I am especially pleased with the successful execution and momentum of our new product introductions, including Corona Premier and Familiar, which drove industry-leading depletion growth of 9% for our beer business for the quarter.”

In Constellation’s beer portfolio, volume increased ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, MD: Guinness to launch its Baltimore brewery on August 3
A new Guinness brewery will open in Baltimore County August 3, according to The Baltimore Sun. It will be the famous beer maker’s first U.S. brewing operation since the 1950s.

“We could have gone to a lot of other places in the country, but we chose Baltimore for a couple of different reasons,” said Tom Day, president of Diageo Beer Company, which owns Guinness.

“When you think about the history this site has and you compare it with Guinness, who’s been around for 258 years. The two of those together? A lot of magic can happen,” Day said.

The public will be able to tour the Guinness Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House, as well as attend taproom tastings and dining in its restaurant, Ryan Wagner, a brand ambassador for the beer-maker tells The Sun.

Brewery news USA: AB InBev gains share for the first time since 2011 in the month to June 16
A popular ad campaign may be spurring alcohol sales, according to Morgan Stanley, CNCB reported on June 27.

The firm cited Nielsen data that revealed one-month U.S. beer sales through June 16 rose 3.3 percent year over year, improving from the results over the previous 12-week and 52-week periods.

Anheuser-Busch InBev, the owner of the Bud Light brand, was a standout, with 1.9 percent volume growth in the one-month period through June 16.

“The biggest improvement came from AB InBev, which gained share for the first time since 2011,” analyst Olivier Nicolai said in a note to clients entitled “Robust demand in June; AB Inbev outperforming; Dilly Dilly effect?” on June 26. “Both Budweiser and Bud Light posted improved momentum in June, down by just -1.4% and -2.3% in volume terms respectively. Dilly Dilly effect?”

Anheuser-Busch InBev launched its “Dilly Dilly” campaign, created by the Wieden+Kennedy ad agency, in August of last year. The ads feature fictional medieval characters toasting each other with the catchphrase. The campaign became a viral, cultural phenomenon.

Morgan Stanley has an overweight rating for Anheuser-Busch Inbev shares.

Brewery news India: Debt Recovery Tribunal restricts transfer of United Spirits shares held by Vijay Mallya and United Breweries (Holdings)
The Debt Recovery Tribunal has restricted the transfer of United Spirits Ltd (USL) shares held by Vijay Mallya and United Breweries (Holdings) Ltd (UBHL), The Hindu Business Line reported on June 28.

The shares were frozen to enable recovery of R6,203.35 crore from Kingfishers Airlines Ltd and others with interest and costs from Mallya and UB (Holdings), said Diageo India, owner of USL, in a notice to the exchanges.

Mallya's 62,550 equity shares of R2 a share (pre-split — 12,510 shares of R10) and UBHL’s 88,79,410 shares of R2 each were affected by the DRT move.

Mallya, a couple of days back, reiterated that he was always willing to settle the dues to the lenders as well as to Kingfisher Airline employees.

“UBHL and myself have filed an application before the Hon’ble Karnataka High Court on June 22, 2018, setting out available assets of approximately R13,900 crore. We have requested the court’s permission to allow us to sell these assets under judicial supervision and repay creditors...,” Mallya said.

BarleyBarley News Barley

Barley news Canada & USA: Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre provides update on Canada and US barley crop
The outlook for the Western Canadian barley crop varies from province to province, and while the rains have been erratic they have been sufficient to sustain the majority of the crops. Some areas are prospering while others are not. Germination is uneven, a result of seeding having been spread out this year, and hit and miss rains, the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre reported on June 27. But overall the crop is looking good for the end of June. A combination of decent rainfall through the provinces and warm temperatures has helped advance crop development. Hot temperatures were the norm this past week, with most areas posting average temperatures registering 7°C over normal June temperatures. Alberta Conditions improved over the past week with most regions in the province benefitting from some rain events. Overall the barley crop is rated at 80% (good to excellent) which is above the 5 year average of 73% at this time of year.

• South: Calgary/Lethbridge - Variable rainfall is the norm for this area, ranging from 10 to 30mm (2/5 to over 1 inch) with the higher rainfall occurring closer to Calgary. Overall the crops are looking good, but they will require some ...More info on site
