It is believed that beer has been produced, in some form, for thousands of years - the ancient Egyptians being one civilization with a knowledge of the fermentation process. Beer production has seen many changes over the centuries, and Brewing, Second Edition brings the reader right up to date with the advances in the last decade. Covering the various stages of beer production, reference is also made to microbiology within the brewery and some pointers to research on the topic are given. Written by a recently retired brewer, this book will appeal to all beer-lovers, but particularly those within the industry who wish to understand the processes, and will be relevant to students of food or biological sciences.

Brewing is designed for those involved in the malting, brewing, and allied industries who have little or no formal training in brewing science. While some elementary knowledge of chemistry and biology is necessary, the book clearly presents the essentials of brewing science and its relationship to brewing technology. Brewing focuses on the principles and practices most central to an understanding of the brewing process, including preparation of malt, hops, and yeast; the fermentation process; microbiology and contaminants; and finishing, packaging, and flavor. The second edition gives more emphasis to engineering and technological aspects, with the three new chapters on water, engineering and analysis. Brewing, Second Edition, is both a basic text for traditional college, short, and extension courses in brewing science, and a basic reference for anyone in the brewing industry.

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich BWL - Marketing, Unternehmenskommunikation, CRM, Marktforschung, Social Media, Note: 1,3, University of Florida, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Anheuser-Busch has to rethink its current strategy and to focus on its core competence: brewing and marketing of beer. A strategic realignment acquires a disinvestment in the business units with low strategic fit, e.g. the theme park or the agriculture division. The integration strategy has to be ended. The money tied up there and additional funds by investors have to be used to acquire other breweries, especially in the emerging markets. At the same time, Anheuser-Busch should increase its interest in Grupo Modelo, to counteract demographic changes in its home market, the United States. Moreover, the brewery has to invest heavily in research and development, a key element for future success in the brewing industry. New beer and beer-mixed categories offer an opportunity for high profits, as new consumers feel attracted by these products. Besides all these changes, Anheuser-Busch should not take away too much attention from its home market and defend the leading market position. Thereby, the brand is the key element to success in the beer industry. Anheuser-Busch has to assure that it obtains the current brand reputation. The same applies to possible new acquisitions. The brewing business is quite a lucrative industry for macro-breweries like Anheuser-Busch. The overall pressure caused by the industry forces is moderate to low. The big market participants have only to be aware of substitute products, rivalry and, to a certain degree, of new entrants. Substitute products, like wine or other liquors, are becoming more and more popular, putting pressure on the beer market. Anheuser-Busch has to react by introducing new products and has to help that beer keeps a fashionable image. The rivalry is only a problem in the mature markets, w

A History of Beer and Brewing provides a comprehensive account of the history of beer. Research carried out during the last quarter of the 20th century has permitted us to re-think the way in which some ancient civilizations went about their beer production. There have also been some highly innovative technical developments, many of which have led to the sophistication and efficiency of 21st century brewing methodology. A History of Beer and Brewing covers a time-span of around eight thousand years and in doing so: * Stimulates the reader to consider how, and why, the first fermented beverages might have originated * Establishes some of the parameters that encompass the diverse range of alcoholic beverages assigned the generic name 'beer' * Considers the possible means of dissemination of early brewing technologies from their Near Eastern origins The book is aimed at a wide readership particularly beer enthusiasts. However the use of original quotations and references associated with them should enable the serious scholar to delve into this subject in even greater depth.

Britain has one of the world's largest and best organised brewing industries, producing a great variety of beers. Over the years it has grown from a cottage industry into a trade which annually contributes a vast amount of revenue to the government. This book looks at the history of beer and brewing from the earliest times to the present day and includes a large number of illustrations which have not been published commercially before. Individual chapters describe the major periods of development: brewing in ancient times, the middle ages, eighteenth-century expansion, mechanisation in the nineteenth century and modern brewing. There is also a description of the brewing process and a detailed glossary of terms.

Brewing is one of the oldest and most complex technologies in food and beverage processing. Its success depends on blending a sound understanding of the science involved with an equally clear grasp of the practicalities of production. Brewing: science and practice provides a comprehensive and authoritative guide to both of these aspects of the subject. After an initial overview of the brewing process, malts, adjuncts and enzymes are reviewed. A chapter is then devoted to water, effluents and wastes. There follows a group of chapters on the science and technology of mashing, including grist preparation. The next two chapters discuss hops, and are followed by chapters on wort boiling, clarification and aeration. Three chapters are devoted to the important topics of yeast biology, metabolism and growth. Fermentation, fermentation technologies and beer maturation are then reviewed, followed by a consideration of native African beers. After a discussion of brewhouses, the authors consider a number of safety and quality issues, including beer microbiology and the chemical and physical properties of beer, which contribute to qualities such as flavour. A final group of chapters cover packaging, storage, distribution and the retail handling of beer. Based on the authors’ unrivalled experience in the field, Brewing: science and practice is a standard work for the industry. A detailed account of all stages of the brewing process Safety and quality issues are discussed, including the chemical and physical properties of beer and beer microbiology A strong partnership of the science and the practicalities of production ensures this book is a primary reference

It has been ten years since its first edition, making the Handbook of Brewing, Second Edition the must have resource on the science and technology of beer production. It recounts how during this time, the industry has transformed both commercially and technically and how many companies have been subsumed into large multinationals while at the other extreme, microbreweries have flourished in many parts of the world. It also explains how massive improvements in computer power and automation have modernized the brewhouse while developments in biotechnology have steadily improved brewing efficiency, beer quality, and shelf life. In addition to these topics, the book, written by an international team of experts recognized for their contributions to brewing science and technology, also covers traditional beer styles as well as more obscure beverages such as chocolate- or coffee-flavored beers. It includes the many factors to be considered in setting up and operating a microbrewery as well as the range of novel beers and beer-related products currently being considered by the brewing industry. It also describes new avenues that challenge the brewer’s art of manufacturing a quality beverage from barley-based raw materials. Thorough and accessible, the Handbook of Brewing, Second Edition provides the essential information for those who are involved or interested in the brewing industry.
