Scientific Digest


To compare the energy consumption of hop drying is part of a holistic sustainability review of hop production. This US team looked into the general sustainability challenges in beer production including hops production. Sustainability is often thought of solely in context of the environment, but it is recognized to encompass the integration of economic development, social development, and environmental protection, which are referred to as the three pillars of sustainability. If we look at it from an environmental perspective the method of LCA (life cycle analysis) is often used, which means to look at the different parts/ingredients from "cradle to grave". The brewery in general is a large consumer of water and energy. Published figures are 8-12 kWH, 5hl of water 150 MJ of fuel energy to produce 1 hl of beer plus 13.6 kg of spent grain and 4 kg of spent yeast produced. Speaking in Carbon foot print a published study indicates that packaging accounts for 40%, and raw materials for 22% (mainly barley). Although the impact of hops was found to be small in this review, the quantity of hops required for brewing hop forward beers is much higher. A beer with 110 g of hops/hl of beer can equal 0.2% of the total carbon footprint. A tenfold usage of hops of 1.1kg/hl beer would mean 2% of the total carbon footprint. Parameters for hops production are machinery, irrigation, fertilization, soil emissions and pesticides usage and kilning. Overall estimates of emissions equivalents ranged from ~3.5 to 5.5 kg of CO2e per kilogram of hops in all cases, estimates were substantially higher than literature values for the production of malt on a kilogram per kilogram basis, which were reported by TCC as 0.91 kg of CO2e per kilogram. Meanwhile the hop industry is providing sustainability reports.

Brewery news USA: Boston Beer reports higher revenue for Q3 2019
The Boston Beer Company, Inc. completed the previously reported Dogfish Head Brewery transaction and began consolidating the Dogfish Head financial results on July 3, 2019.

The combined company reported third quarter 2019 net revenue of $378.5 million, an increase of $71.6 million or 23.3% from the third quarter of 2018, mainly due to an increase in shipments of 19.1%.

Net income for the third quarter was $44.7 million, or $3.65 per diluted share, an increase of $6.7 million or $0.44 per diluted share from the third quarter of 2018. This increase was primarily due to increased revenue, partially offset by lower gross margins, increases in advertising, promotional and selling expenses, and the non-recurrence of a $0.38 per diluted share favorable one-time impact related to a tax accounting method change in the third quarter of the prior year.

Earnings per diluted share for the 39-week period ended September 28, 2019 were $8.07, an increase of $2.11 from the comparable 39-week period in 2018. Net revenue for the 39-week period ended September 28, 2019 was $948.5 million, an increase of $178.1 million, or 23.1%, from the comparable 39-week period in 2018.

Brewery news Nigeria: Brewers groaning under excise duty burden
With competition from cheaper brands and sachet alcoholic drinks, brewing firms in Nigeria are groaning under the burden of excise duty as they struggle to manage costs that would have hitherto been passed to consumers, The Guardian reported on October 30.

Already, consumer purchasing power has continued to drop with preference for cheaper commodities taking centre stage in many of such purchases.

The Federal Government had introduced a new excise regime on 4 June 2018 to address shortfalls in revenue and this new regime led to an increase of at least N30 per litre of alcohol consumed in the country.

Another increase to N35 per litre was slated for implementation earlier in June.

Based on the financial results obtained by The Guardian, excise duty expense for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019 by Nigerian Breweries showed that the company paid N24.24 billion in excise duty compared to N16.93 billion in 2018 even when revenue for the two periods remained almost the same.

International Breweries had paid N1.53 bln as at September 2018; Champion Breweries N311.3 mln as at December 2018, while Guinness Nigeria Plc that controls the second largest market share did not reveal how much it paid, even though industry sources put its ...More info on site

Brewery news USA & Canada: Molson Coors to cut jobs, simplify segments and add more products beyond beer to boost revenue
Molson Coors Brewing Co said on October 30 it would cut jobs, simplify business segments and add more products beyond beers as the new Chief Executive Officer Gavin Hattersley looks to boost revenue.

The company, which had about 17,750 employees at the end of 2018, plans to save about $150 million in cost and expects to cut 400-500 jobs in its U.S., Canada and international segments.

This is part of its plan to bring down its business units to one each in North America and Europe from four globally. It will also shut its Denver office and make Chicago its North American operational base.

The brewer said it would incur charges between $120 million and $180 million, which will be spread out through the rest of the financial year and until fiscal 2021.

“Organizational changes, further cost-cutting are appropriate, though the magnitude of cost saves is likely to underwhelm,” Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy said.

Shares of the company, which missed Wall Street estimates for quarterly revenue and profit, fell as much as 5%. Molson Coors has posted sales decline in six of the last seven quarters.

The shift to other products comes at a time when demand for traditional beer has been slowing globally.

Brewery news Kenya: Kenya losing billions in potential taxes to cross-border beer smuggling from Uganda
Kenya is losing billions of shillings in potential taxes to cross-border smuggling of beer from Uganda due to a huge difference in rates, nation.co.ke reported on October 26.

Beer on the Ugandan side of the Busia border costs half what it goes for on the Kenyan side, a situation that has proven uncompetitive for bars and restaurants on the border towns, driving down sales and taxes.

Some bar owners have also resorted to smuggling the commodity through the porous border to sell at the same rate they are sold in Uganda to win customers and stay afloat.

A half-litre beer bottle in Kenya, which sells at an average of Sh200, is sold at Sh80 in Uganda. Bars on the Kenyan side that smuggle Ugandan brands sell them at about Sh100 between Busia and Malaba.

A multi-agency team drawn from the Kenya Revenue Authority, the Anti-Counterfeit Agency and the Kenya Association of Manufacturers were told during a conference on illicit trade in Busia that the rising incidence of smuggling of alcohol from Uganda would be hard to deal with due to tax rate differences.

KRA regional surveillance officer Vincent Kimosop said traders are keen on good margins, forcing them to change tack.

Brewery news The Philippines: Increasing excises on alcohol expected to reduce consumption by 20% - research
Increasing the excise tax on alcohol products is expected to reduce consumption by as much as 20% in four years with possibly life-saving consequences, “save lives,” BusinessWorld Online reported on October 29 citing a Philippine public health consultancy.

According to a simulation conducted by Alliance for Improving Health Outcomes (AIHO), the joint proposal of the nation’s finance and health departments to increase the excise tax on alcohol products will likely reduce consumption of spirits by 18.3%, beer by 20.5% and wine by 4.68% after a four years of implementation.

The study evaluated the Department of Health-Department of Finance’s (DoH-DoF) proposals in Senate Bill No. 383, which imposes higher specific taxes on alcohol products and a 10% annual indexation rate.

The DoH-DoF tax structure will “result in a greater reduction of consumption across all alcohol types” compared with House Bill No. 1026, which was passed on third and final reading in the House, due to “deterrent effects of higher prices brought about by higher taxes,” it said.

Both proposals are projected to “save lives” after four years of implementation but the DoF-DoH’s will save 57,020 lives, compared with 22,152 for the House version.

“In both simulations, the tax intervention will result in more lives saved for ...More info on site
