Scientific Digest


A German research team developed a method to quantify nine hop flavonoids in a single HPLC-MS/MS run. By doing so they discovered that in dry hopped beer trials, the flavour threshold concentrations for the bitter components co-multifidol glucoside, quercetin glucoside, and kaempferol glucoside (1.8, 0.9, and 0.5 mg/L, respectively) were exceeded, meaning that these compounds may contribute to the bitterness of dry hopped beers.

Brewery news Thailand: Beer sales up 10% in May
In Thailand, beer sales registered a 10% growth in May, the Singapore Business Review reported on July 3.

RHB noted that Thailand's volume of beer sales has registered positive YoY growth of 5% and 10% in April and May, a stark turnaround from the 17% decline year-on-year in October last year after the passing of the late King.

According to RHB, this could mean that beer consumption has already normalised in the country.

"We expect 2H17 to continue to see positive growth in beer volumes. According to management, Thai Beverage (ThaiBev) has maintained its 40% market share in the beer segment as at April 2017. As such, we expect ThaiBev’s beer segment to perform in line with the market," the brokerage firm noted.

On the other hand, whilst there is no market data released on spirits, RHB reckoned that the recovery in beer consumption can also be seen as a proxy for the consumption of spirits.

"We anticipate the decline in spirit volumes to dissipate in 2H17. In addition, we note that agents stock up on spirits inventories in anticipation of a tax hike during January-March 2016, which resulted in strong sales number for ThaiBev in 2Q16. We expect a similar restocking phase by agents ...More info on site

Brewery news Nigeria: Guinness Nigeria launches share sale to help lower financial costs
Guinness Nigeria on July 4 launched a share sale to raise 39.7 billion naira ($126 million) from existing shareholders to help lower its financing costs after reporting its first annual loss in 30 years last year, Reuters said.

The beer maker, the local division of the world's leading spirit maker Diageo, said funds raised will support Guinness in executing its strategy in the face of a recession in Africa's biggest economy.

Guinness plans to issue five new shares to existing shareholders for every 11 held at 58 naira each, a 10.2 percent discount to July the 4th’s market price of 64.57 naira.

"Our expectation is that funds raised will help mitigate the impact of increasing finance costs, optimize our balance sheet and improve the company's financial flexibility," Chief Executive Peter Ndegwa said in a statement.

The company, which is 54 percent owned by Diageo, reported in September last year a pretax loss of 2.35 billion naira for the year ended June 30, its first annual loss in 30 years, triggering the share sale.

Shareholders approved the sale in January. It said it had also received the green light from the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Nigerian Stock Exchange.

Brewery news Vietnam: Vietnam welcomes more than a dozen microbreweries over past two years
A night out drinking in Vietnam used to mean one thing: sipping Bia Hoi, a local draft beer with 3% alcohol content, from a tiny stool on the sidewalk.

But feather-light lagers aren't the only game in town anymore, CNN reported on July 5.

The country's craft beer scene is booming, having welcomed more than a dozen micro-breweries in the past two years.

"The beer culture in Vietnam starts with Bia Hoi," Hao Tran, managing editor of lifestyle website Vietcetera, tells CNN. The craft beer scene that has evolved has done so from people drinking beer in the Old Quarter in Hanoi or Bui Vien Street in Saigon, he says.

"But there's so much more to beer culture in Vietnam now than just that particular image."

Vietnam is one of the biggest beer consumers in Asia drinking 3.8 billion litres a year in 2016, according to Ministry of Industry and Trade.

While stalwart brands such as Tiger, Saigon Beer, and Bia Hoi still account for the lion's share of that consumption, in Ho Chi Minh City alone artisan brewers such as Platinum, Pasteur Street Brewing Co, Winking Seal, Heart of Darkness, and Fuzzy Logic are providing a real alternative, says Tran.

The brands have, for example, introduced ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Carlsberg acquires Fields Brewery in London
Carlsberg has bought London Fields Brewery, which has been up for sale since its founder was charged with tax fraud, The Guardian reported on July 3.

The beer firm in Hackney, east London, which built a cult following for brews such as Easy IPA and Shoreditch Triangle IPA, is the latest in a string of craft breweries to be bought by a multinational firm, joining AB InBev-owned Camden and Meantime, now owned by Asahi.

But the deal was struck in unique circumstances, with the brewery having been on the market for £1 mln since last year after founder Jules De Vere Whiteway-Wilkinson was charged with several counts of tax fraud, allegations which he denies. Carlsberg did not disclose the value of the takeover.

Whiteway-Wilkinson and wife, Rosemary Spence, appeared in court in January, but a trial was put on hold after three jurors pulled out for personal reasons. Proceedings are scheduled to begin again on July 10.

It is not clear whether Whiteway-Wilkinson will benefit from the sale of the brewery because his businessman father Juan now owns it, according to accounts filed with Companies House.

The brewery enjoyed rapid success with beers such as Hackney Hopster and Love Not War, and it was visited ...More info on site

Brewery news South Korea: Domestic beers challenging dominance of imported brands
South Korea’s domestic beer brands are challenging the dominance of imported beer in the Korean market with new products featuring low prices and light, clean tastes that they hope will stand out against global top brands, the Korea Herald reported on July 4.

Such moves are proving effective, with domestic beer gaining a majority of beer sales in June, at above 50 percent, up from an average of 47.8 percent for the first five months of 2017, according to discount chain E-mart, citing its stores’ statistics.

Standing in the lead are domestic powerhouses Hite Jinro and Lotte Liquor, who respectively released the new brands FiLite and Fitz ahead of the peak season for beer sales.

Launched in April, FiLite sold over 1.2 million cans in just two months, as it created buzz on social media for its low prices and crisp finish. The sparkling liquor is made with 100 percent aroma hops and Korean barley, offering a carbonated alternative to beer.

Fitz, meanwhile, sold 15 million bottles in its first month, approximately six bottles per second, according to Lotte. It is a light lager beer made with a so-called “super yeast” that increases fermentation to reduce lingering aftertaste.

Unlike Fitz, which is sold ...More info on site

Brewery news Estonia: Estonian brewers concerned about sped-up increase in excise duty
Estonian beverage producers Saku Õlletehas and A. le Coq have both expressed concerns about multiple negative effects the sped-up increase in the excise duty on beer and cider, the second hike of which went into effect on July 1, could have, ERR News reported.

"The drastic hike in the excise duty on low-alcohol beverages taking place this and next year will put our activity on the domestic market under serious pressure," Saku Õlletehas board member Jaan Härms told BNS. "It can be expected that already considerable cross-border trade with Latvia will multiply and up to half of internal sales may head for the border."

According to alcohol producers' forecasts, the state will lose a total of €174 million in tax revenue next year due to an increase in cross-border trade, he said. Manufacturers of low-alcohol beverages also said that the increase in excise duty on beer can have a negative impact on people's health, as a price increase may motivate consumers to consume more hard liquor instead. "In this regard, we in Estonia are already currently in a noticeably worse situation compared to the EU average, as opposed to, for example, average beer consumption in Europe," he noted.

Härms said that a hike ...More info on site

Brewery news New Zealand: Lion adds a number of new Australian beers to its portfolio
New Zealand's largest beverage brewer Lion has added a number of new Australian beer and cider brands to its portfolio, the New Zealand Herald reported on July 2.

The Australasian-based company on June 30 said it will undertake the exclusive distribution in New Zealand of AB InBev's Pure Blonde, Fosters, Victoria Bitter, and Crown Lager beers and Scrumpy, Harvest, Bulmers, and Thomas & Rose ciders.

Lion's Managing Director Rory Glass said the addition of the AB InBev brands will increase Lion's share of the beer category in New Zealand by 2 per cent and of the cider category by almost 20 per cent.

"This is a significant addition to our portfolio. These iconic brands will complement the existing Lion beer and cider range and extend Lion NZ's strategic partnership with AB InBev."

AB InBev's Commercial Director for New Zealand & Pacific Richard Goatcher said the deal would be good for the development of both companies.

"We are delighted to have entered into this arrangement with Lion NZ and look forward to continued growth of our brands in New Zealand".
