Brewery news The Czech Republic: Heineken loses exclusivity on use of term “Radler” in the Czech Republic
The brewing group Heineken has lost exclusive rights over the use of the term "Radler" for a beer mixed with lemonade in the Czech Republic, according to a decision of the Intellectual Property Office (UPV) that was confirmed to CTK on January 9 by UPV spokesman Josef Dvornak.

Some of the Czech breweries had to stop using the term on their products over Heineken's exclusivity. Now they want to turn to courts for damages.

Heineken said it was analysing the ruling and that its steps would follow in the weeks to come.

Pivovary Staropramen, the second largest brewery in the Czech Republic, launched Staropramen Cool Lemon, a mix of lemon juice and beer, on the market in May 2011. Consequently, beer flavoured with lemonade or another soft drink became a hit in the country.

Some brewers started using the term "Radler" on their products.

Radler is used for beer mix drinks in German-speaking countries where they are very popular.

Kralovsky Pivovar Krusovice, one of top five Czech brewers owned by Heineken, had the trademark registered in the Czech Republic in 2001. Upon an injunction issued on the request of Heineken, competitor breweries had to stop using it on the Czech market.

UPV now rendered the trademark null ...More info on site

Brewery news UK & Hong Kong: Welsh brewery to export its beer to Hong Kong for the first time
A Welsh brewery is making inroads in China with its much-admired stout, Wales Online reported on January 9.

Sam Tam, a director of Trafalgar, a large bar in Hong Kong’s metropolitan Wan Chai district, is thought to have become the first person to strike a deal with Cardiff’s Brains brewery to get Brains Black anywhere outside Wales.

Drinkers in Hong Kong will soon get the chance to compare it to Guinness, one of the most popular drinks among beer-lovers in Hong Kong.

When Brains Black was launched in 2010, Brains hoped it would provide an alternative to Guinness, the market leader in the stout world.

Richard Davies, Brains’ sales and marketing director, said: “From early research we found there to be a real passion for a Welsh stout that could be offered as an alternative to the market leader.”

At the launch of Brains Black, Brains invited former Welsh rugby player Rob Jones and former Ireland international Simon Easterby to a blind taste test between the Welsh beer and Guinness.

The Welshman guessed the Brains beer correctly but the Irishman struggled to tell the difference between the Welsh and Irish beers.

The Welsh stout also performed well against Guinness in taste tests with consumers.

Now, the Trafalgar Bar, ...More info on site

Brewery news Iceland: Iceland brewer launches whale beer
Iceland doesn't treat cetaceans the way most of the world wants them to be treated. Like Japan and Norway, Iceland has continued to hunt fin and minke whales in defiance of an international moratorium on the practice. It's not a challenge to find a restaurant serving whale meat in the capital city of Reykjavík. With all this in mind, it is not really surprising that Iceland's whaling business has recently teamed up with a brewery to produce "whale beer", The Atlantic reported on January 9.

Hvalur, the company managed by "the Icelandic Ahab" Kristján Loftsson, is providing whale meal—a byproduct of processing the animal's meat and oil—to Steðja Brewery to create a limited edition product tied to Iceland's annual mid-winter festival Thorrablot. The beer, marketed as a drink for "true vikings," will only be available from January 24 through February 22. It's 5.2 percent alcohol and is supposedly "healthy" by virtue of containing whale, which is, according to the brewery, high in protein and low in fat.

Dagbjartur Ariliusson, the brewery's owner, told reporters that whale beer makes sense in the context of Thorrablot and the country's history. For many centuries, he said, they have celebrated this festival by eating "cured ...More info on site

Barley news Australia: Adelaide scientists prepare to release a revolutionary barley variety
Adelaide agricultural scientists are about to release a new type of barley grain they say could boost yields by as much as 10 per cent, ABC reported on January 8.

The variety named Compass has been developed over the past five years by a team at the University of Adelaide's Waite Campus.

Test crops were planted in a range of conditions at more than 34 farms across the country, including sites in Western Australia and Queensland.

The barley is one of many new Australian varieties undergoing testing ahead of commercial approval and researchers hope the final test results will be released within weeks, making the grain available for sowing in 2015.

Program leader Jason Eglinton says the crop has demonstrated its robustness during trials and yields about 10 per cent more than the dominant Commander variety.

"The improvements that we've been able to achieve are through a number of small contributions all combined," he said.

"There's improvements in the disease resistance of the new variety.

There's improvements in the grain size and the stability in the grain size, small differences in its developmental pattern."

Dr Eglinton says the grain is not the result of genetic modification but selective breeding.

"It's based on classical breeding methodology so hybridising different parents, ...More info on site

Barley news Australia: AWB increases barley pools estimated returns
AWB on January 9 increased its South Australian & Victorian 2013/14 Barley Pools Estimated Pool Returns (EPRs) by A$14 - A$23 a tonne.

Head of Trading and Risk Management Mr Josh Martin said: "Domestically barley prices have increased and the market has found a level of support from continued dry conditions and demand in NSW & Queensland."

"Globally feed markets have been recently impacted by China's rejection of GM US corn however this has impacted positively on Australian barley demand and price as the market sees current Australian barley prices as fair value," Mr Martin said.

"We anticipate record barley exports into China this year which is a positive for pool participants and we continue to invest considerable effort in maintaining and building relationships in supplying feed barley to Asia and Middle East markets, where customers are looking for reliable suppliers."
