Scientific Digest


It is an interesting observation that dry hopped beers often have less stable beer foam. Why is this? Comprehensive testing by a research team has found that with dry hopping, the amount of iso-alpha acids slightly decreases in the beer due to precipitation. Increases in humulinones and alpha acids were observed but both are rather foam positive so they are likely not the cause. Beta acids are foam negative, but due to low concentration in beer, they are also not guilty. But two parameters were found to be of importance: 1) Temperature - the foam stability is very sensitive to temperature change, and 2) Hop lipids - they are known to be gushing surpressing, so it is no surprise they are foam negative. Problems with foam stability? Contact Barth-Haas to discuss!

Brewery news Vietnam: Habeco shares rise 15% in first day of trading on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange
Shares in Habeco rose 15 percent in their first day of trading on January 19 after switching to the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange, valuing the Vietnamese brewer at $1.5 billion, Nasdaq reported.

Habeco shares were at 147,000 dong ($6.51) at 0217 GMT from a starting price of 127,600 dong. The stock was debuting after delisting from Vietnam's Unlisted Public Company Market on Jan. 11 following more than two months of trading.

The government said it wanted to sell all of its 82 percent stake in Habeco in 2016 and its 90 percent in bigger peer Sabeco by 2017, worth a combined $6.4 billion. It has yet to decide details of any sale.

Brewery news The Czech Republic: Sale of Plzeňský Prazdroj to Asahi Group questioned by Pilsen-based association Právovarečné měšťanstvo
The Pilsen-based association Právovarečné měšťanstvo is questioning the sale of the Czech brewery Plzeňský Prazdroj to the Japanese company Asahi Group Holdings, the news site iDnes.cz has reported.

The group has appealed to European Commissioner for Competition Margrethe Vestagler, asking her to suspend the sale, arguing that it has been leading a legal dispute over the ownership of part of its property. Karel Svoboda, the head of the Právovarečné měšťanstvo association, told the news site that they were very concerned about the issue.

Právovarečné měšťanstvo is demanding its property rights for the Měšťanský pivovar brewery in Pilsen, which was built by the association back in 1842 and which is today part of the Plzeňský Prazdroj company, are recognised.

Asahi Group Holdings, Japan’s biggest brewery group, has won the bidding competition to acquire the biggest Czech beer producer in December 2016.

The Group has provisionally picked up the Czech brewer as part of a package of Central European beer makers put up for sale by the multinational SABMiller. This also comprised breweries in Poland, Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia with the price tag for the job lot put at 7.3 billion euros (around 197 billion Czech crowns).

The sell-off was forced on SABMiller by the European Commission ...More info on site

Brewery news India: Bihar shutting down all liquor factories and bottling plants
Nine months after the Liquor Ban was enforced in Bihar, the State Government is moving ahead to a next level by shutting down all liquor factories and bottling plants in the state, Bihar Prabha reported on January 18.

A decision was taken in the Cabinet Meeting chaired by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar at International Convention Center in Rajgir on January 17. As per the details available, the licenses of existing Liquor bottling factories won’t be renewed after March 2017, which would automatically lead to their shutdown.

Ever since the complete Booze Ban in Bihar, analysts had predicted the closure of Liquor Bottling and Brewing Plants across the state. Most of them had setup units in the state in order to reduce the material and transportation cost. The Liquor Ban from April 2016 completely destroyed the local market for these companies.

Bihar had some of the world famous beer companies operating in the states. It has units of 6 different Foreign Liquor brands. These include Carlsberg, Diageo Plc, United Breweries and Molson Coors. These companies own more than 70 distilleries and breweries in Bihar for over a decade now, which is an ideal market for these liquor companies, offering an abundance of raw ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Kingfisher Beer Europe to distribute Indonesian lager Bintang in the UK
Kingfisher Beer Europe is set to launch popular Indonesian lager Bintang in the UK on-trade, the Morning Advertiser reported on January 18.

The company acquired UK marketing and distribution rights from owner Multi Bintang Indonesia, which is part of the Heineken company, with an eye to expanding the brand beyond restaurants and into pubs and bars.

Kingfisher CEO Damon Swarbrick said: “The brand is ideally positioned to capitalise on the burgeoning pan-Asian restaurant sector so we will initially be seeding it here.

He added: “However, we believe it has much wider potential and we have already secured a number of high-profile bar listings in London and Manchester.”

The beer, which has an ABV of 4.7%, will be available in 24x330ml and 12x620ml bottles this month.

Swarbrick added: “While the industry continues to explore craft beer, there is clearly significant demand for premium, authentic, easy-drinking world beers. We believe Bintang is perfectly suited to meet this demand.”

Heineken recently launched H41, a new lager made with ‘wild’ Patagonian yeast, to the UK on-trade.

The beer, a 5.3% ABV lager, was launched exclusively into Laine Pub Company sites in London and Brighton in December with an eye to expanding its presence further in the future.

Barley news EU: Malting barley markets see more activity this week
This week the European markets have seen a bit more activity in malting barley, GrainCom reported on January 20.

Crop 2016 in France still looks very tight, the UK will have a strong export program again. So the market will have to rely on Scandinavia, but selling interest seems not to be so strong at the moment and we might have to put a slight question mark on the quality that will be available, GrainCom said.
