0 USA: The results from the 2006 World Beer Cup

The results from the 2006 World Beer Cup announced on April 15, showed that American mastery of brewing spans the world's major beer cultures from Bavarian weizens to Belgian wits-far surpassing the skills of any other brewing country.

Pitted against the best breweries in the world and evaluated by an international cadre of judges, American brewers medaled in 73 of the 85 style categories in the 2006 World Beer Cup and took four of the five Champion Brewery and Brewmaster awards.

"No country in the world makes award-winning beers in so many styles as America's craft brewers," said Charlie Papazian, President of the Brewers Association which conducts the World Beer Cup competition.

Brewers from Germany showed the second greatest breadth of brewing skill, medaling in 18 style categories while brewers from Japan, Belgium and Australia each medaled in 9 of the 85 categories. Thus, American brewers medaled in four times the number of style categories of any other brewing country.

"These results show why today's American beer culture is widely admired by beer experts all over the world," said Ray Daniels, Director of Craft Beer Marketing for the Brewers Association. "American brewers have mastered the beers of Europe and innovated a whole ...

Scientific Digest

Investigation of Beer Flavor by Gas Chromatography-Olfactometry

A. A. Murakami, H. Goldstein, A. Navarro, J. R. Seabrooks, and D. S. Ryder, Miller Brewing Company, 3939 W. Highland Blvd., Milwaukee, WI 53201, U.S.A.

ABSTRACT J. Am. Soc. Brew. Chem. 61(1):23-32, 2003

Gas chromatography-olfactometry (GCO) is an analytical technique for evaluating the aroma characteristics of volatile constituents separated by gas chromatography (GC). This article presents three case studies employing the GCO technique in brewing, including investigation of kettle hop aroma, an off-aroma in beer, and aged-beer aroma. The kettle hop aroma was studied using a GCO technique called CharmAnalysis (DATU, Inc., Geneva, NY) and beer strongly hopped with Oregon Cascade hop pellets at 45 min before end of kettle boil. CharmAnalysis can quantitate the intensity of an aroma detected at a sniff port. It revealed that linalool was an important aroma compound in hopped beer and that phenylethyl alcohol and two coeluting, tentatively identified constituents were important aroma compounds in hopped and unhopped beers. In a second study, GCO was employed for investigating an objectionable aroma described as medicinal/phenolic/Band-Aid in a production beer. GCO was able to reveal the eluting off-odor that matched the off-aroma character in the beer. In a third case study, a quantitative GCO technique called AromaTrax (Microanalytics, Round Rock, TX) was employed to determine aged-beer aroma. This technique revealed that quantitative changes of many minor components possessing unpleasant aroma notes, particularly the carboxylic acids, were involved in aged-beer aroma.
