Scientific Digest

Come on, let's dip hop!

Japanese researchers introduced this hopping technology already 2013 at the EBC. Dip hopping means the addition of hop after wort cooling before start of fermentation. With this hopping technology they found the following results: hop enzymes do not contribute to main fermentation, myrcene levels in finished beers are very low, which was found favourable in this case. Also, the production of 2M3MB an onion type of flavour (derived from iso-alpha acid) is supressed due to a lower H2S content in the beer.

News Articles

Brewery news USA, CT: Tox Brewing Company opens its doors in New London
Tox Brewing Company at 635 Broad St. in New London opened this past weekend. Started by Dayne Laskey and Mike Zaccaro, the brewery and taproom will be open noon to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays, Patch.com reported on April 8.

They expect to add Friday hours starting this week, according to their website.

Zaccaro and Laskey raised $29,000 from 269 supporters in a Kickstarter campaign to fund the enterprise, The New London Day reported. The beer list includes stouts, a cream ale, IPAs, a double IPA, and what they call a Connecticut Table Beer.

Zaccaro and Laskey are from New London County and have been friends since preschool.

"The idea of Tox Brewing started as a daydream between the three of us a few days before Thanksgiving in 2015," their website reads. "This endeavor came from a passion and desire to create better and more creative beer, and to continually push our own limits."

Brewery news USA, CA: Burnin’ Daylight Brewing Company holds grand opening in Lomita
Burnin’ Daylight Brewing Company in Lomita held its grand opening on April 5, drawing locals and suds aficionados to the area’s first craft brewery, the Easy Reader News reports.

Located near the intersection at Lomita Boulevard and Narbonne Avenue near Lomita City Hall, Burnin’ Daylight is the latest entry in Southern California’s well regarded craft beer market. City officials greeted its arrival with a ribbon cutting ceremony highlighting what they hope will be a transformative effect on the area.

The brewery had a soft opening in late January. Bartender Brandan Ortega said that since then, a stream of locals have stopped by to express their gratitude about the decision to open in the neighborhood.

“The theme that I constantly get when I’m bartending is that people are thrilled to have a spot in town. Some people feel the city has been overlooked, and people are just super excited to have a spot they can walk to,” Ortega said.

Head brewer Brendan Lake, who began homebrewing with his dad Bob after college, brewed at San Diego’s vaunted Stone Brewing, then at El Segundo Brewing Co. and Hop Saint in Redondo Beach. Lake, his mother Shannon, and Bob serve as co-owners.

Brewery news Canada, AB: Red Hart Brewing already open in Red Deer County
A new community-minded brewery with the motto “Drink Good Beer, Do Good Things” has opened near Red Deer in central Alberta, the Canadian Beer News reported on April 4.

Red Hart Brewing has been founded by Curtis Lawrence-Ross, Jarod Griesbach, and Andrew Wiebe, and opened its doors on St. Patrick’s Day weekend.

Beers available on draught for glasses and growler fills include Pale Ale (6% abv, 35 IBU), English Mild Ale (3.5% abv, 21 IBU), Berliner Weisse (5.3% abv, 2 IBU), and NEPASH Series #1: Cascade (6.5% abv, 13 IBU), the latter being the first in a series of New England Pale Ale Single Hop ales.

Red Hart Brewing is located at 112-488 McCoy Drive in Red Deer County, and is open 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Wednesday and Thursday, 2:00 PM to 10:00 PM on Friday and Saturday, and 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM on Sunday.

Brewery news USA, RI: Lops Brewing to open in downtown Woonsocket by early July
Downtown Woonsocket is filled with empty storefronts, but Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt is hopeful strong revitalization efforts will change that, Turn to 10 reported on April 6.

“The ‘main street’ of Main Street really struggled. A lot of the buildings were in difficult condition, but people are taking a look at those now,” Baldelli-Hunt said.

Most notably, a brewery is opening at 122 North Main St., which is just down the road from the Stadium Theater. Lops Brewing will include a taproom, trivia and live music. The building was on the verge of being condemned until local businessman John Messier saw potential and began extreme rehab efforts, Baldelli-Hunt said.

The brewery is the namesake of Sean Lopolito, a home brewer from Plainville who looked at a handful of Rhode Island and Massachusetts locations before deciding on Woonsocket.

Legislation sponsored by Sen. Melissa Murray, a Democrat who represents District 24, and Rep. Michael Morin, another Democrat who represents District 49), to help pave the way for the brewery is now headed to the governor.

“We’re trying to get Rhode Island to compete with other states as far as beer tourism. Every time I say, ‘Beer tourism’ it sounds funny, but it’s a real thing,” Morin said in ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, KY: Maysville Brewing Company under construction in Maysville
A new brewery will be setting up shop in Maysville soon, the Ledger Independent reported on April 5.

The Maysville Brewing Company is currently under construction in the Limestone Square Building on West Second Street in downtown.

The brewery will be opened by Tiffany and Brandon Fields.

The couple said the brewery had been a dream for many years.

“My husband has wanted to do this for probably 12 years now,” she said. “It’s been a dream of his for a long time. The timing was never right and location was never right. When William started on this building, I found out about it and told my husband about it. We thought it was perfect for what we wanted to do. This was just the perfect space.”

Brandon Fields said it all started with brewing at home.

“I used to brew at home and people really liked,” he said. “They told me I should sell it. I started with the kits and decided I wanted to make my own recipes. I tried it and they were really good.”

The beer brewed in-house will be served at the bar, though the couple does not want the brewery to be mistaken for a bar.

According to Tiffany Fields, the couple ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, NY: Lunkenheimer Craft Brewing moving to larger facility in Weedsport
A small Cayuga County brewery that recently won a stack of medals for its beers has some big expansion plans this spring and summer, Syracuse.com reported on April 5.

Lunkenheimer Craft Brewing is moving from its home at 8920 N. Seneca St. (Route 24) in Weedsport to a new and larger spot just down the street. The new location, at 8931 N. Seneca, will have double the space, to accomodate a larger brewhouse area and tasting room, and the addition of a wood-fired pizza oven.

Derric Slocum, who co-owns the brewery with his wife, Kristin Lunkenheimer Slocum, said he hopes to have the new space open in June. The brewery may be able to expand its hours and add a canning line for its beers, Slocum said.

It will continue to operate a relatively small 5-barrel brewhouse, but will add fermentation tanks to expand its production. It’s also planning to expand distribution in Onondaga County, through the Party Source Beverage Center in Syracuse, Slocum said. (Beers including a Blood Orange Kolsch shoukld be showing up in the Syracuse market next week, Slocum said.)

The Slocums have been working on the expansion for some time. It was important for them to find space in Weedsport, ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, OH: Fifty West Brewing Company planning new brewpub in Chillicothe
Fifty West Brewing Company, recently named one of the fastest growing craft brewers in the nation, is proving their ranking right by announcing the opening of a new brewpub location on Route 50 in Chillicothe, Ohio. The pub is slated to open in late 2019 or early 2020, the Cincinnati CityBeat reported on April 5.

“Route 50 spans across the heart of the country from Ocean City, Maryland to Sacramento. Our travels on this road gave us a sense of how America evolved and was built from coast to coast,” says Bobby Slattery, managing partner of Fifty West, in a release. “We had a dream that one day we could expand the Fifty West experience. This brewpub is the next step in bringing that vision to life.”

The new addition to the Fifty West portfolio will be located at 1 N. Paint St. in downtown Chillicothe; the renovation of the space will cost around $2 million and provide 30 new jobs to the area.

“Route 50 took us to an amazing town in Chillicothe, Ohio and we fell in love. Chillicothe is a city rich in people and history, with many parallels to our core values including access to trails, rivers, and parks. ...More info on site

Brewery news EU: Diageo caught in a row between the EU and the UK
Diageo, the world’s largest premium alcoholic beverage group, is caught in the crossfire in a row between the European Union and the UK Treasury which could cost it £278 million in back tax, The Drinks Business reported on April 8.

The dispute centres on a tax scheme introduced in 2012 by the then Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne. It involves complex “controlled foreign company rules” covering how tax is levied on interest payments on inter-company loans made by offshore subsidiaries.

After an 18-month investigation, the European Commission has ruled that Osborne’s tax scheme gave an unfair advantage to multinational companies based in the UK and has ordered the Treasury to reclaim more than £1 billion from about 50 companies including Diageo.

The EU says the scheme falls foul of its rules designed to stop big companies avoiding tax by moving profits into countries where taxes are low. It says the measures introduced by Osborne were tantamount to state aid.

Tax experts say the position is a muddle and expect either HM Treasury, the companies involved or both to make legal challenges to the Commission’s ruling.

The EU’s Competition Commissioner, Margrethe Vestager is quoted by The Sunday Times as saying: “Anti-tax avoidance rules are important ...More info on site

Brewery news Myanmar: Burbrit Craft Brewery quenching Myanmar’s thirst for craft beer
On a hot summer morning at a riverside plot in Yangon’s North Dagon, a small team of brewers carry sacks of grain imported from Germany on their shoulders to a small mill. There’s a brewer using a wooden paddle to stir the grain in the mashing tank. It’s steamy and smelly and there are pressure and temperature gauges everywhere. The hot, gloopy mixture will go through sparging, boiling and fermentation, and malt, yeast and hops will be added in the perfect ratios to create the most deliciously smooth and refreshing craft beer in Myanmar, The Irrawaddy News Magazine reported on April 9.

This is Burbrit Craft Brewery, which was set up by a small group of enthusiasts in 2016, making history in Myanmar and delighting craft beer-lovers around Yangon. Initially, it took time to convince the local drinking community to pay up to five times more for a fresh, premium beer and outlets in the city and beyond were challenged by the necessity to keep it chilled at all times. But the brewery has defied the odds and gone from strength to strength, opening a flagship taproom close to downtown Yangon in 2017 and producing canned beer to supply 45 outlets ...More info on site

Brewery news Malaysia: Carlsberg Brewery Malaysia has no plans of further price hikes this year
Carlsberg Brewery Malaysia Bhd does not plan to increase the price of its products for the rest of 2019, outgoing managing director Lars Lehmann was quoted as saying by The Sun Daily on April 10.

The group has hedged its needs for malt and barley, its two main components, as well as aluminium cans for the rest of 2019 to lock in the costs.

Chairman Datuk Toh Ah Wah said there will be “no major surprises” in prices, barring new regulatory changes.

Carlsberg has hiked price of certain products to distributors and retailers between 3% to 6% effective this month on rising costs.

“The price increase is preserving our margins. If we don’t do that, our margins will go down but we are able to keep our margins more or less unchanged,” Lehmann told a press conference after its AGM on April 10.

The rising costs of raw materials were attributed to escalating production costs with malt prices increasing by 15% to 20% due to bad barley harvests in Europe and Australia; the increase in prices of glass bottles by 4% in 2019 versus 2018’s prices; as well as utilities costs that were up 6.6% in July 2018.

Meanwhile, Lehmann pointed out the existing regulatory developments, ...More info on site
