Scientific Digest

Let the yeast decide on flavour !

Imagine you brew the same beer with the same hopping procedure (same variety, same times of addition) and you just take a different yeast strain for fermentation. How significant would the difference be? We tried it using an American ale yeast (05) in comparison to an Abbaye yeast. For the hopping, we used Tradition in comparison to Citra. We found that depending on the hop variety, beers can show a similar (using Tradition) or also a completely different flavor profile (using Citra) caused by the yeast. Also, different effects on bitterness and mouthfeel were observed. This is an exciting topic for further sensory research!

Brewery news USA & Australia: Lagunitas Brewing to pave its way into the Australian market
Leading US craft beer brand Lagunitas Brewing will be exploring all its international options with its new co-owner Heineken, says founder Tony Magee.

Lagunitas Brewing is one of America’s top ten craft beers but is not currently available in Australia through official channels, unlike Samuel Adams, Sierra Nevada, Deschutes and Stone.

Drinkers have speculated that Heineken’s involvement paves the way for local distribution, so Australian Brews News asked Lagunitas Brewing’ Tony Magee for his thoughts on the matter.

“We are definitely interested in presenting our beers to beer lovers down under but have not yet decided when that will be,” Magee said.

“We will be exploring all our international options with our new partners in the weeks and months to come.”

Heineken is brewed under licence and distributed in Australia by Lion, which would be unlikely to want an international craft beer brand to add to its already expansive portfolio.

The Dutch brewer also has local ties through Drinkworks, a wholly owned subsidiary of New Zealand’s DB Breweries, which itself is owned by Heineken Asia Pacific.

Drinkworks is the Australian distributor of DB brands including Tui and Monteith’s, as well as Heineken-owned brands Tiger and Bintang.

Brewery news France: Beer sales in HoReCa drop by 5% in January-April
New report by CGA-Nielsen shows sales of beverages in France’s cafes, bars, hotels, and restaurants dropped by 4.5% in January-April this year, DirectMatin.fr reported on September 9.

Sales of beer fell by 5%, those of soft drinks by 6%, bottled water by 3%, and strong drinks sales dropped by 4%.

The analysts pointed out that the largest drop in consumption was seen by low alcohol beers (4.4-4.5% alc.), whereas special beers (with alcohol content above 5.5%), beer mixes and zero-alcohol beers registered higher sales.

Brewery news World: Tibet’s Lhasa Beer has global aspirations
Lhasa Beer, the only Tibetan beer available, has global aspirations and wants to take its brew to pubs and people around the world, CCTV reported on September 9.

Though Tibet is not the first region that comes to mind when you think about beer, the Lhasa Brewery Company said that it hopes to export its beer to other countries in Southeast Asia, as well as new markets in the U.S. and Europe in the future.

Sold in cans and bottles under the slogan, “Beer from the roof of the world,” the beverage uses mainly Himalayan spring water, barley and yeast as ingredients. Around 30 percent of the malt content is derived from the huskless native Tibetan barley.

The area around the town of Gyantse in southern Tibet is known as the homeland of green barley, and produces a high yield of the crop.

“Altogether, beer production reached 140,000 tons last year, which is an increase of 10 percent to 12 percent year on year,” said Norbu Tsering, General Manager of Tiandi Green Beverage Dev’t Company, the company that distributes the beer.

“We are selling the beer not only in Tibet, but also to other major cities across China.”

Brewery news Vietnam: Brewers oppose proposed increase in special consumption tax on imported goods
Vietnam’s Ministry of Finance has proposed to increase special consumption tax on imported goods to ensure fair competition between locally manufactured products and imported ones, Viet Nam News reported on September 10.

Under the current regulations, the special consumption tax on imported goods is calculated keeping in mind their cost, insurance, and freight (CIF) value plus current import tariff.

However, the ministry said the import tax on automobiles and air-conditioners would be lowered to zero under the country's commitment to international integration. The current special consumption tax on imported goods would not ensure fairness between local and imported items. It could become vulnerable for importers to take advantage of the tax cut for transfer pricing, causing losses to the State budget and making domestic producers less competitive.

Therefore, it proposed to revise the regulations by adding domestic sale fee on importers. The domestic sale fee should be calculated on the basis of fees paid for services such as packing, managing, advertising, displaying, transporting, and the warranty plus interest of tax payers.

However, the new calculation faced strong opposition from several businesses as the special consumption tax on the imported goods could be increased by 15 per cent from current levels.

Brewery news Tanzania: Heineken launches 500ml bottle
Heineken has announced plans to expand its portfolio through the launch of its iconic beer in 500ml bottle in Tanzania, East African Business Week reported on September 9.

“Judging from the approving comments and smiling faces we received after our initial survey, we are confident that the 500 ml will be able to take on other premium SKU’s of the same quantity,” Michael Mbungu, the Country Manager of Heineken Tanzania, said.

As an international premium beer brand, Heineken continues to increase its footprint in the regional market, and the latest innovation aims to appeal to a wider range of beer lovers and initiate them to the premium beer category.

Mbungu said they had conducted research amongst Tanzanian beer consumers and had received positive feedback regarding the launch of the 500 ml Heineken bottle.
