Scientific Digest


The CO2 extract of hops is a well established hop product, where extraction takes place under supercritical conditions. It contains all hop compounds with brewing value, is easy to use and to store and the shelf life is exceptional. These Japanese Researchers looked into using CO2 extraction for other botanicals that can be used in brewing. Using gentle conditions (temperatures of 40 degrees Celcius), they performed supercritical CO2 extraction of lemon peel and coriander seeds. Changing the pressure of the CO2 resulted in different yields in hydrocarbons and oxygenated sesquiterpenes. These extracts were used in the conditioning phase of the brewing process and yielded better flavour results than using the corresponding raw material in the whirlpool. This demonstrates that CO2 extraction is a powerful technology to make flavour compounds from different kinds of aromatic raw materials more accessible.

Brewery news UK: Number of beer trademark registrations hits record high in 2018
The number of trademarks registered for beer in the UK has hit a record high in 2018, jumping 6% to 2,519, up from 2,372 in 2017, says RPC, the London City-headquartered law firm.

RPC says the continued boom in demand for craft beer and an increased range of low-alcohol beers has driven up the number of trademark registrations.

BrewDog, for example, now has over 130 trademarks registered in the UK, including for its Albino Squid Assassin and Dead Pony Club beers.

The craft beer boom has triggered a number of major breweries to launch their own range of craft-style beers often needing their own set of trademarks. Heineken recently launched a new brand, Maltsmiths, to try to take advantage of the craft beer boom and compete with craft breweries. AB InBev recently launched craft beer, Lisa, in the UK, and Marstons now offers Revisionist craft beer.

RPC adds that the rise in beer trademarks is being further driven by the demand for low-alcohol and alcohol-free beer, which has resulted in a proliferation of new low-alcohol beer brands. This demand is partly driven by younger generations, more of whom are going ‘teetotal’ or choosing to cut back on their alcohol intake for health purposes. UK ...More info on site

Brewery news The Czech Republic: Czech brewer Gambrinus to stop selling beer in plastic bottles
Gambrinus brewery will be the first major beer brand in the Czech Republic to stop selling beer in plastic bottles. Its parent company Plzeňský Prazdroj has announced that the brand will discontinue production of beer in PET bottles as of January 1, 2020, Expats.cz reported on November 26.

“Gambrinus has decided to go the way of common sense and stop producing more plastic where it is not needed. We also respond to the wishes of our consumers, for whom not only the quality of the product is important, but also what we make packaging from,” says Plzeňský Prazdroj’s marketing director Roman Trzaskalik.

He adds, “Czechs are a beer nation that still prefers bottled and draft beer.”

As a result, the brewery says it will reduce plastic production by 334 tonnes per year. Gambrinus will continue to be available to customers in glass bottles, cans, and barrels and beer tanks in pubs and restaurants.

Gambrinus beer in PET bottles is expected to disappear completely from shelves between January and February. In addition to ending sales of its PET bottles, Gambrinus will begin using 100% recycled plastic film for packing cans.

“Overall, Gambrinus will reduce plastic production by more than 330 tonnes in 2020 alone, which ...More info on site

Barley news France: Crop ratings for wheat and barley fall sharply due to heavy rains
Crop ratings for French wheat and barley fell sharply last week while farmers made little progress with sowing and harvesting, data from farm office FranceAgriMer showed on November 22, suggesting heavy rain was continuing to affect field conditions.

An estimated 78% of soft wheat, France's main cereal crop, was rated good or excellent in the week to Nov. 18, down from 84% a week earlier and below an 82% score in the same week last year, FranceAgriMer's weekly crop report showed.

French farmers had completed 74% of soft wheat sowing for next year's harvest, up from 71% a week earlier but below the 97% progress seen a year ago, the report said.

Soft wheat sowing was running eight days behind the average pace of the past five years, it said.

Grain maize harvest progress also remained slow, with 88% of the crop gathered compared with 84% a week earlier.

The maize harvest was also showing an eight-day lag compared with the five-year average and was running 20 days behind last year's crop, when harvesting had already finished by the same stage.

Some analysts expect wet weather in France and other western European countries like Britain to reduce the winter wheat and barley area.

Traders in France also ...More info on site

WhiskyWhisky News Whisky

Whisky news World: Diageo taking advantage of changing consumer preferences
British distiller Diageo is dodging consumer confidence headwinds by taking advantage of trends in alcohol and drinking preferences, CEO Ivan Menezes told CNBC on November 21.

“We are benefiting from consumer trends where people are drinking better and want better brands and experiences,” he said in an interview.

Diageo, the world‘s largest spirits company, reported 7.5 percent growth in global sales in its latest results update. Receipts of tequila brands, which make up 3 percent of Diageo‘s net sales, spiked 29 percent, including double-digit growth in Don Julio and Casamigos labels in North America.

“It‘s part of this trend of people wanting more premium brands and enjoying the quality that‘s behind a Don Julio tequila,” Menezes said. “People are moving to spirits and cocktails in a bigger way from wine and beer, and people are trading up for more premium brands.”

The company also makes Smirnoff, Johnnie Walker, and Captain Morgan labels.

As the partial shutdown of the U.S. government dragged through most of January, while markets worried about the outlook of 2019.

Menezes said the spirits industry is not immune to global economic and spending declines, but they‘re “better positioned” to weather the storm by following trends. Furthermore, sales grew 20 percent in China with ...More info on site
