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 Peru: Craft brewers fighting to change disadvantageous tax laws
Peru’s microbreweries are fighting to change tax laws which put them at a disadvantage against the economies of scale of SABMiller’s local monopoly, Peru Reports said on January 27.

The small but growing craft beer industry in Peru is pushing Congress to change its excise tax scheme so small breweries which sell less than 34,000 barrels per year pay less in excise tax than large breweries. With less than 1% of Peru’s beer market, they say the tax presents an unfair barrier to growth.

Peru’s largest brewer, Backus y Johnston, controls over 96% of the beer market, and that share is set to increase to over 99% after AB InBev completes its takeover of Backus parent company SABMiller. With almost 12 million barrels sold in 2015, the monopolist’s economies of scale allow it to pay a fraction of what the small businesses pay per litre in excise tax.

“Without a doubt, taxes are our biggest obstacle to growth. Absolutely without a doubt,” says Ted Alexander, founder of the Sierra Andina brewery in Peru’s central city of Huaraz. “Literally every single month between the 10th and the 17th, we all have to scratch our heads and come up with $10,000 to throw to the ...More info on site

Brewery news EU: AB InBev largest source of investment banking revenues in Europe last year
Belgian beer company AB InBev was the largest source of investment banking revenues in Europe last year - and Lazard, Deutsche Bank and Barclays split close to half of the brewer's fees between them, the Financial News reported on January 27.

In total, European clients paid banks about $16.1 billion in fees across mergers and acquisitions advice, debt and equity capital markets and loans in 2016, down from $18 billion in 2015. It was the lowest annual total since 2012.

AB InBev paid out about $491 million in fees across M&A advice and debt market deals during the year, according to data prepared for Financial News by Dealogic, which tracks disclosed fees and uses its own analytics for deals in which fees aren't disclosed.

AB InBev's fees were linked to the company’s takeover of SABMiller, which was announced in 2015 and closed in October 2016. The deal was valued by Dealogic at £87.8 billion. It also included fees for arranging two bumper bond deals that refinanced its acquisition loans, as well as smaller spin-offs and sales that the company completed.

Brewery news India: United Breweries to seek legal advice following SEBI restraining Vijay Mallya from holding key position in any listed company
United Breweries Ltd said on January 27 that it is seeking legal advice for its next course of action following the Securities and Exchange Board of India’s (SEBI) restraining its Chairman Vijay Mallya from holding position as director or key managerial position in any listed company, the Economic Times reported.

In a regulatory filing, UBL said the compliance of the SEBI order "as may be required in so far as it concerns United Breweries Ltd has to be carried out by Dr Mallya himself".

"The company is in process of taking legal advice on the next course of action that it has to take as a consequence of the order and shall act suitably," the company said in a clarification sought by stock exchanges.

SEBI's order dated January 25, 2017 is a direction to Dr Vijay Mallya and others in their respective capacities, it added.

The market regulator has barred Mallya along with Ashok Capoor from "holding position as directors or key managerial persons (KMPs) of any listed company".

BarleyBarley News Barley

Barley news EU: Forecast for increased French spring barley plantings seems to be realistic
GrainCom analysts note some more activity on malting barley lately, especially in France new crop for winter and spring barley, and also some spot business for Scandinavian malting barley has been done, it is reported.

The predicted increase in French spring barley acreage seems to be confirmed (of course depending on planting conditions) despite the increase in sugar beets which is to some extent competition for acreage. At present, GrainCom analysts estimate that an area of about 470-480 thousand ha for spring barley is realistic. Plantings will probably start within the next two weeks.

Precipitation in France was way below average the last months, consequently the water reserves are pretty low – of course this is a long shot but nevertheless something to keep in mind in case of hot and dry weather in May/June.

WhiskyWhisky News Whisky

Whisky news Kenya: East African Breweries Ltd. to boost spirits business in Kenya
East African Breweries Ltd. plans to boost its spirits business in Kenya and neighboring countries as higher duties reduce revenue from its bottled-beer business, Managing Director Andrew Cowan was quoted as saying by Bloomberg on January 27.

The company is investing about $9 million in a new line of spirits that will serve countries including Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania, Cowan said in an interview in the capital, Nairobi, on January 27. The unit of Diageo Plc, which owns a 50.02 percent stake, earlier reported a 28 percent drop in first-half income after an increase in Kenyan duties contributed to a 6.1 percent drop in revenue.

“Our focus right now is we can see growth in whisky,” Cowan said. “We are the largest whisky producer in the world, we can see growth in overall spirits.”

EABL, East Africa’s largest brewer and Kenya’s second-biggest company by market value, grew sales of spirits including Smirnoff vodka and Kenya Cane by 26 percent in the first-half, according to a statement published by Diageo, the world’s No. 1 distiller, on Thursday.

Kenya has raised excise duties on bottled beer four times in the past five years, including a 43 percent increase that took effect in December 2015 that ...More info on site
