Scientific Digest

Tell me your genes and I tell you your traits...

Making advances for traits relevant to the brewing industry using traditional hop breeding is complex as most of the traits are quantitative in nature and are likely to be controlled by a large number of genes, each with small effects. Quantitative genetics is a method to describe the inheritance of quantitative traits. Key predictions from quantitative genetic analyses include the amount of heritable genetic variation in traits available for selection and estimates of correlations between traits. In hops, which are dioecious, quantitative genetic analysis has the added benefit of providing a means of assessing the genetic potential of male genotypes for traits expressed only in female plants (such as yield and chemistry). The information gained from quantitative genetic analysis will refine the hop breeding process - improving estimates of the gains that can be anticipated through selection methods, assisting with the development of clearly defined breeding aims for hop improvement, and improving the efficiency and accuracy of parental selection. Such techniques may appear somewhat distant from the organoleptic experience of hops in beer, but they do provide one of the tools required to access the full genetic potential of Humulus lupulus and underpin the development of the next generation of hop cultivars with desirable agronomic and organoleptic characteristics.

Brewery news India: Diageo takes up legal battle against Indian company using ‘Black Label’ trademark for a beer
Global drinks giant Diageo Brands BV has taken up a legal battle against home grown liquor maker Khoday Brewing & Distilling Industries, which has secured the ‘Khoday Black Label’ trademark for one of its premium beer brands in India, India Express reported on April 4.

Diageo, which has the iconic Johnnie Walker Black Label Scotch whisky brand under its kitty, moved the patents and trademark tribunal, IPAB, against the order of the deputy registrar, trademarks, Chennai, which allowed the Bangalore-based Khoday Brewing & Distilling Industries to use ‘Khoday Black Label’ mark, for its beer brand.

The trademarks tribunal, after going through the initial affidavits, has adjourned further hearing on the petition to the first week of June.

The deputy registrar on March 24, 2010, had granted registration of ‘Khoday Black Label’ to Khoday Brewing & Distilling Industries, disapproving the opposition filed by Diageo at that point of time. Following the order, the trademark was published in the Trademark Journal.

Diageo, aggrieved by the order, moved the IPAB, praying for the withdrawal of the registration given to ‘Khoday Black Label’ mark. Separately, it also filed a petition for the stay of the impugned order.

When the matter came up on April 3, the counsel for both ...More info on site

Brewery news Cambodia: Beer sales expected to spike during Khmer New Year
Grocery and beer sales are expected to spike in Cambodia during April as Khmer New Year preparations ramp up, The Phnom Penh Post reported on April 2.

Hy Ramy, managing director of HRM (Cambodia) Group, a food and beverage distribution company specialising in canned foods, condiments and beverages, said he expects sales to increase 20 to 30 per cent during April.

Beer sales are expected to double during the three-day holiday and contribute most of the month’s estimated spending increase, he said.

“Many distribution depots are preparing to supply mostly beer because the demand of other goods has not increased much,” he said.

Despite predictions that sales will be down 20 per cent from those during Chinese New Year festivities in January, Ramy said Khmer New Year is still a major money earner for companies.

Sov Sokny, sales and marketing representative for Cambrew, a major producer of Angkor brand beer, said sales volumes had increased steadily each year during the Khmer New Year period. On average, Sokhy said he sells about 400,000 boxes of beer per month in Phnom Penh alone. This month, he said he expects to sell 600,000 boxes.
