Scientific Digest


The research teams surrounding Kiyoshi Takoi have been working on hop aroma questions for years. They have been able to show that the coexistence of linalool, geraniol and beta-citronellol boosts the citrus flavour impressions in beer. In current work, these researchers show specifically how the geraniol content in beers can be significantly increased by using hop varieties rich in geraniol, e.g. Mosaic, Bravo or Citra. Relatively low amounts of these hops can increase the geraniol and citronellol content up to 15 to 20mg/L. They also found that there can be additive effects among 4MMP thiol (black currant flavour), linalool and geraniol. Only 1,2 ng/L of 4 MMP was enough for this effect.

BreweryBrewery News Brewery

Brewery news USA: Beer sales up 0.3% last year, imports account for 18.9% of total sales
U.S. beer sales in 2016 were 207.3 mln hl, up 0.3% from the previous year, H. M. Gauger GmbH reported earlier in March.

Beer imports were 39.2 mln hl, up 6.8%, for a market share of 18.9%. Imports from Mexico alone were 25.8 mln hl, 13.8% of the total U.S. beer sales.

Craft beer is estimated to have sold 30.2 mln hl, up 7%, for a market share of 14.6%, the analysts said.

Brewery news Thailand: Thaibev expected to take a step closer to becoming regional beverage player after restructuring
CIMB is maintaining its “add” call on Thai Beverage with S$1.07 target price, on expectations the company will take a step closer to becoming a regional beverage player once F&N and Frasers Centrepoint’s restructuring are completed by September, The Edge Markets reported on March 24.

The corporate revamp of Thaibev’s 28% stake in both F&N and FCL has long been expected. This involves Thaibev divesting its FCL stake and buying a bigger F&N stake.

According to CIMB, the difference this time round is management is sounding quite confident that the restructuring is expected to be completed by Sept 2017 although details have so far been scant.

With the restructuring, Thaibev will no longer be viewed as a “one product one country” company. It will be on the verge of evolving into a regional beverage player which will help to re-rate the sock.

In a report on March 22, analyst Jonathan Seow says the most likely scenario is to first divest FCL and use the proceeds to enlarge the group’s stake in F&N.

The next step is F&N’s inorganic expansion into Vietnam through Sabeco. This is in line with the group’s Vision 2020 of deriving more than 50% of its revenue from both non-alcoholic beverages and ...More info on site

Brewery news Canada: Government ties hikes in beer excises to the Consumer Price Index
Beer drinkers in Canada are going to pay more to slake their thirst every year going forward now that the federal government has tied hikes in the excise tax for beer to the Consumer Price Index, The Chronicle Herald reported on March 23.

In the federal budget announced on March 22, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government slapped a two-per-cent hike on the excise tax for beer, wine and liquor.

That alone is likely going to hike the cost of a case of 24 beers by about a nickel. But industry insiders say the federal government’s decision to tie future excise tax increases on beer to the Consumer Price Index, starting April 1 next year, will mean the cost of a case of beer will keep going up every year.

“It’ll be passed right on to consumers,” Matthew Stewart, an associate director with the Conference Board of Canada, said in an interview on March 23. “The consumer will pay in the form of higher beer prices.”

At Nova Scotia’s largest brewer, Oland Brewery, the financial blow of this year’s two-per-cent excise tax increase on beer is likely to be about C$375,000 per year. The brewer cranks out the equivalent of 15 million cases of a ...More info on site

Brewery news Ukraine: Beer and malt output down in January-February this year
Ukraine’s beer output during the first two months of this year dropped by 7.4% versus the same period of 206, Ukrpivo said.

The trade association estimates the local output of beer (excluding zero-alcohol beer and beer with alcohol content below 0.5%) at 1.69 mlh hl in January - February.

Malt production declined by 11.4% to 39,300 tonnes, it is reported.

Brewery news USA: AB InBev’s Golden Road Brewing to build new brewery in Northern Carolina
AB InBev’s Golden Road Brewing, one of formerly craft-beer brands that AB InBev gobbled up in the summer of 2015, is coming to North Oakland, NC, The East Bay Express reported on March 24.

Permits filed with the city of Oakland this month show that Golden Road is planning to open a 7,000-square-foot brewery and beer garden in North Oakland, which will take up three lots on 40th Street between Broadway and Manila Avenue.

According to this application with the Planning and Zoning Division, Golden Road intends to brew on site, serve food, and also feature an outdoor beer garden with fire pits. The entire structure will be constructed out of shipping containers.

There are several locally owned breweries within a mile of the proposed Golden Road site, including newly opened Temescal Brewing and Drakes Dealership.

The AB InBev incursion into Oakland isn't its first announced foray into Northern California. Last year, the corporation released plans to open a similar Golden Road beer garden in Sacramento's Midtown neighborhood. AB InBev also purchased Oakland-based Horizon Beverage Company, a distribution outfit, in 2015.

Last year, Tom McCormick, head of statewide advocacy group the California Craft Brewers Association, said the No. 1 threat to the thriving craft-beer industry ...More info on site
