Scientific Digest

Come on, let's dip hop!

Japanese researchers introduced this hopping technology already 2013 at the EBC. Dip hopping means the addition of hop after wort cooling before start of fermentation. With this hopping technology they found the following results: hop enzymes do not contribute to main fermentation, myrcene levels in finished beers are very low, which was found favourable in this case. Also, the production of 2M3MB an onion type of flavour (derived from iso-alpha acid) is supressed due to a lower H2S content in the beer.

Brewery news USA: Craft brewing sector realizes 4% production growth last year
The Brewers Association (BA) — the trade association representing small and independent American craft brewers — released on April 2 the annual growth figures for the U.S. craft brewing industry. In 2018, small and independent brewers collectively produced 25.9 million barrels and realized 4 percent total growth, increasing craft’s overall beer market share by volume to 13.2 percent.

Retail dollar value was estimated at $27.6 billion, representing 24.1 percent market share and 7 percent growth over 2017. Growth for small and independent brewers occurred in an overall down beer market, which dropped 1 percent by volume in 2018. The 50 fastest growing breweries delivered 10 percent of craft brewer growth. Craft brewers provided more than 150,000 jobs, an increase of 11 percent over 2017.

“Craft maintained a fairly stable growth rate in 2018 and continued to gain share in the beer market,” said Bart Watson, chief economist, Brewers Association. “Small and independent brewers continue to serve as job creators, strong economic contributors, and community beacons.”

There were 7,346 craft breweries operating in 2018, including 4,521 microbreweries, 2,594 brewpubs, and 231 regional craft breweries. Throughout the year, there were 1,049 new brewery openings and 219 closings—a closing rate of 3 percent.

Brewery news Spain & USA: Mahou San Miguel teams up with Founders Brewing to acquire 40% in Avery Brewing
Mahou San Miguel is upping its stake in Colorado’s Avery Brewing, and the Spanish beer company has teamed up with its other U.S. craft brewery partner, Michigan’s Founders Brewing, on the new investment, Brewbound reported on April 2.

Mahou, along with Founders, will purchase a 40 percent stake in Avery Brewing for an undisclosed sum.

The newly acquired stake will be combined with Mahou’s original 30 percent minority interest in Avery that was purchased in early 2018.

The deal, which was negotiated over “the last few months,” gives Mahou and Founders a 70 percent controlling interest in the Colorado craft brewery.

Brewery founder Adam Avery and his father, Larry, will own the remaining 30 percent of the business, but executives from Mahou will now play a bigger role in the “day-to-day” decision making, Adam Avery told Brewbound.

“We can use all the expertise we can get,” he said. “There is some crazy shit going on in our industry, and it is awesome to have investors who look at this as a long-term play and not as a short-term, turn-and-burn type of thing.

“They think generationally,” he added.

Mahou also owns a separate 30 percent stake in Founders, which was ranked by the Brewers Association as the 14th ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Beer price could double due to ‘severe’ weather events and global warming - study
Beer could double in price in the UK as a result of 'severe' weather events and global warming, according to a new international study from climate scientists, The Sun reported on April 1.

This price rise would be driven by global shortages of barley, which would have the effect of reducing beer production throughout the globe.

The research, published in the Nature Plants journal, was carried out by scientists from the US, China, and Mexico, as well as from the University of East Anglia in the UK.

They reached their conclusions by modelling the effects of climate change on the global production of barley, which is used to make beer.

They then worked out the impact of a decline in barley production on the supply, price and consumption of beer in 34 international regions.

And for the UK, they found that Brits would see a drop of anything from 0.37 billion to 1.33 billion litres in the amount of beer they drink every year, while they could have to pay double the normal price for a pint.

In the worst-case scenario, the UK would drink 2.34 billion fewer pints a year, while they'd have to pay £7.20 for a pint on average or over £10 in ...More info on site

Brewery news Nigeria: Beer excises hike to make business environment more difficult for drinks giants
For brewing giants AB InBev SA, Heineken BV and Diageo Plc competing for market share in Africa’s most populous country, the Nigerian government’s decision to hike excise duties is another setback in an under-performing economy, Bloomberg reported on April 2.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration followed up its June decision to impose taxes on beer and spirits by deciding in January to implement another phased 17 percent increase in duties on alcoholic beverages. The move, a bid in part to counter flagging revenue from the key oil industry, is making the business environment more difficult for the drink giants in an economy that contracted in 2016 and has faced double-digit inflation since then.

“The tax increase is hitting revenue,” Michael Famoroti, economist and partner at Stears Business, said by phone from Lagos, the commercial capital. “You are unlikely to see healthy revenue growth in the industry as the phased implementation continues. Companies will not be able to pass on the full burden of the tax.”

The government raised the taxes and increase borrowing on local and international markets after failing to meet its revenue targets in the past three years, primarily due to lower-than-expected oil exports -- its main source of income. Budget and ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Low and no-alcohol beer see huge increase in sales since 2017
Low and no-alcohol beer has seen a huge increase in sales of 381% since 2017 in the UK, according to a new report.

EeBria Trade’s Craft Beer Trends report found that almost 3% of beers bought, so far in 2019, have been 2.8% ABV or below and half of those have been 0 to 0.5% ABV.

It predicted low-alcohol beer is here to stay and it expects the trend to continue quickly because there is still a way to go to reach the sales levels reached by other countries.

The analysis is based on information on the UK market and the report covered the growth and decline of different beer styles.

Pricing was another area the report looked into and found, for the past two years, prices have risen steadily for craft beer by approximately 2%.

Between 2016 and 2017, there was a rise of 9% but this was likely to have been influenced by the drop in the value of the pound, making imported items such as many hop varieties and kegs more expensive, with this being passed on to the customer.

The report discovered a drop in market share of craft beer for traditional styles from 14% to 5%.

Another trend the report highlighted was ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: Heineken USA to pay record $2.5 million fine to settle trade practice violations
The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) announced on April 2 the acceptance of a record $2.5 million offer in compromise from Heineken USA Incorporated for alleged trade practice violations outlined in the Federal Alcohol Administration (FAA) Act, Brewbound reported.

Heineken USA’s (HUSA) payment is the largest offer in compromise that the federal agency has ever accepted, TTB spokesman Thomas Hogue confirmed to Brewbound.

According to the TTB, HUSA supplied alcohol retailers with its proprietary “BrewLock” draft systems at no cost between August 1, 2015, and March 26, 2019.

HUSA also reimbursed retailers who purchased the so-called “patented” and “revolutionary” on-premise technology through “disguised” credit card transactions.

Through its investigation — which began in Florida as a joint operation between the Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, and later expanded to the state of Washington and New York City – the TTB determined that Heineken was in violation of the FAA Act, specifically subsection 205 “unfair competition and unlawful practices.”

In a press release, the TTB said the BrewLock systems were designed to only dispense products packaged in unique kegs used by HUSA, which subsequently induced retailers into purchasing offerings made by the global brewing entity.

Additionally, the TTB accused Heineken’s U.S. importing ...More info on site

Barley news Canada: Experts forecast malting barley acreage increase this year
Industry experts expect malting barley acreage in Western Canada to increase by about five per cent this year, supported by strong prices for both feed and malt, the Manitoba Co-Operator reported on April 1.

“All indications suggest we’ll see an increase in malt barley, as well as feed,” confirmed Peter Watts of the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre.

In light of China’s consummate ban of Canadian canola, some worry other commodities will be treated similarly. However, there aren’t yet any indications that that is the case for malting barley.

According to Statistics Canada, China’s demand for barley and malt is expected to increase steadily due to China’s lower grain production due to urbanization and limited farmland.

“It’s impossible to predict what will happen but there aren’t any indications that Canadian malt barley will be shunned to the same extent as Canadian canola,” he said.

Though China has a history of importing the majority of its barley and malt from Australia, Canadian-grown malt is steadily increasing its market share.

Australia grew 60 per cent of China’s imported barley in 2016, while Canada accounted for 20 per cent. However, given Australia’s inclement weather in recent years, Canada has gained some of the market share in China.
