Scientific Digest


US researchers looked into several parameters that can influence IBU values such as pH, ABV, alpha acid addition and dry hopping in general. In a pH range from 4.1 to 4.9 they found that below a pH of 4.35 bitterness is perceived less intensely and described with sour and astringent. Above 4.35 bitterness is perceived more intensely and described being lingering. It was also found that dry hopping actually reduces the perceived bitterness while increasing the tested IBU values.

Brewery news Vietnam: Carlsberg still in talks on ownership in Habeco – government officials
The Ministry of Industry and Trade has not yet completed talks to sell its ownership in the Ha Noi Beer, Alcohol and Beverage Corporation (Habeco) to the Danish brewer Carlsberg, according to officials, VietNamNet Bridge reported on November 15.

At a meeting held on November 14 between the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Prime Minister’s working group, officials said that it would take a while to complete the deal due to its complexity and its involvement of other ministries and sectors.

“Habeco and Carlsberg have discussed the deal, however, the two sides have not come to a final agreement yet,” Dung said. “The negotiation was quite complicated and we need to handle it carefully.”

"The sale of the State’s stake in Habeco must be transparent and based on market rules. It requires a lot of time and procedures," he said.

The department has sent a request to the Ministry of Justice for consultancy on the contract between Habeco and Carlsberg, the official said.

According to the strategic co-operation agreement between the two companies, Carlsberg is obliged to support Habeco in its development. In return, the Danish brewer can be prioritised to purchase Habeco’s strategic shares in case the MoIT decides to sell its ...More info on site

Brewery news World: AB InBev shares drop on report it may have its eyes on Coca-Cola as next acquisition target
Shares of Anheuser-Busch InBev ended down 1.85 percent on November 15 on a report that the brewer might have its eyes on U.S. beverage giant Coca-Cola for its next acquisition, CNBC reported.

InBev, the world's largest brewer, already completed a $107 billion purchase of SABMiller, but the Sunday Telegraph said Carlos Brito, the Belgian company's CEO, could be eyeing its next acquisition target, Coca-Cola. A deal for Coke, with a stock market capitalization of $176 billion, could provide a big bonus payday for InBev's top managers, the report said.

In intraday trading, InBev's U.S.-listed stock was down $4.26, or 4 percent, at $101.80. Coke's stock was flat.

It's not the first time Coca-Cola has been mentioned as a possible takeover target for InBev. PepsiCo also has been a rumored target in the past.

Under a so-called "2020 Dream Incentive Plan," which InBev has previously disclosed in U.S. regulatory filings, about 65 of the brewer's senior management can share in a bonus if its "ambitious growth target" of reaching at least $100 billion in annual revenue is reached. A deal for Coke, which had annual revenue last year of $44.3 billion, would likely put InBev's annual revenue over the $100 billion mark.

The bonus pool in ...More info on site

Brewery news The Czech Republic: Two Czech millionaires team up to bid for the country’s top brewery
Two Czech billionaires have teamed up in an effort to buy the country’s top brewery, Plzeňský Prazdroj, according to Hospodářské noviny. The country’s wealthiest man, Petr Kellner, and Pavel Tykač, fifth on the rich list, want to get their hands on the Pilsner Urquell-producer and other regional breweries being sold off by SABMiller.

Earlier this year the European Commission granted the world’s two biggest beer companies, Anheuser-Busch InBev and SABMiller, approval to merge.

There was one major proviso. Most of SABMiller’s holdings in Europe have to be sold off so as to ensure competition in those markets remains healthy.

This also concerns Plzeňský Prazdroj, the Czech Republic’s leading maker and exporter of beer and the producer of its best-known brand, Pilsner Urquell.

Petr Kellner is the owner of the PPF investment group and the Czech Republic’s richest person. The country’s fifth wealthiest inhabitant is Pavel Tykač, who owns power company Czech Coal.

Hospodářské noviny reported on November 14 that Mr. Kellner had approached Mr. Tykač with a view to teaming up to make a bid of CZK 175 billion to SABMiller for Plzeňský Prazdroj and four other central European breweries.

The companies concerned are Slovakia’s Topvar, Dreher from Hungary, Romania’s Ursus and Kompania Piwowarska from Poland.

Brewery news USA: AB InBev cutting several products from its portfolio
Anheuser-Busch InBev is cutting several products, including its Budweiser Black Crown and Beck's Sapphire beers, from its US portfolio.

The brewery said the cuts are part of a "portfolio optimization initiative," Advertising Age reports.

Other products being cut include Oculto, a tequila-flavored beer, and Mixxtail, a cocktail-inspired line of drinks.

"Anheuser-Busch is consistently looking for ways to optimize our portfolio and deliver the right brands at the right time," an AB InBev spokeswoman told AdAge. "As part of that continual evaluation, we've decided to discontinue or re-align a selection of low-volume brands and flavor variants this spring."
