Beer began to be exported to India in the early days of the British Empire, including porter and India Pale Ale, also known as IPA. Although as alcohols are not unknown to India thousands of years ago.It is mentioned in some epics of India like The Mahabharatha, called "sura paniyam", which means a liquid that can potentially make the drinker unconscious.
The first brewery in India was set up in Kasauli, in the Himalaya mountains, near Shimla, in the late 1820s by the Englishman Edward Dyer. Dyer's brewery produced Asia's first beer, called Lion. The brewery was soon shifted to nearby Solan (close to the British summer capital Shimla), as there was an abundant supply of fresh spring water there. The Kasauli brewery site was converted to a distillery which Mohan Meakin Ltd. still operates. Dyer set up more breweries at Shimla, Murree,Rawalpindi and Mandalay.

Another entrepreneur, H G Meakin, moved to India and bought the old Shimla and Solan Breweries from Edward Dyer and added more at Ranikhet, Dalhousie, Chakrata, Darjeeling and Kirkee. In 1937, when Burma was separated from India, the company was restructured with its Indian assets as Dyer Meakin Breweries, a public company on the London Stock Exchange. Following independence, in 1949 N.N. Mohan took over management of the company and the name was changed to Mohan Meakin Ltd. The company continues to produce beer across India to this day and Lion is still available in northern India. Lion was changed from an IPA to a lagerin the 1960s, when due to East European influence, most brewers in India switched from brewing Ales to brewing lagers. Today no brewer in India makes India Pale Ale. All Indian beers are either lagers (4.8% alcohol — such as Australian lager) or strong lagers (15 % alcohol - such as Australian Max super strong beer). In various parts of north-eastern India, traditional rice beer is…...

...that brewed one beer, Mountain Man Lager, also known as “West Virginia's beer”. Mountain Man Lager held the top position among lagers in West Virgina for almost 50 years and had respectable market share in most states. The company over the years relied on its history and its status as an independent, family owned brewery to create an aura of authencity and position the beer with its core drinker – blue collar, middle to lower income men over age 45.

...confusing name refers to the original Stanley Park Brewery, which was established way back in 1897 on the shores of the park’s Lost Lagoon by Belgian pioneer and brew master Frank Foulbert. (Green beer) The brewery is actually owned by the Mark Anthony Group, the leading distributor of wine and beer in Canada. Some people point out that Stanley Park Brewery is not a craft brewery at all, but a division of the same Canadian beverage giant that makes Mike’s Hard Lemonade and dozens of other products. (Green beer) Stanley Park was created over a century ago by an individual interested in protecting and dedicating land - “to the use and enjoyment of people of all colors, creeds and customs for all times.” –Lord Stanley Governor General of Canada, 1888.When the Belgian pioneer brew master frank Foubert established Stanley Park Brewery in 1897, he provided more than refreshment to park visitors.

...Classification of Beer What's more refreshing on a hot summer day than a nice cold beer? Or how about drinking a nice cold one with some buddies after work at a local bar, sound nice doesn?t it? Beer has been around for many years and will probably be around for many more. A beer is any variety of alcoholic beverages produced by the fermentation of starchy material derived from grains or other plant sources. The production of beer and some other alcoholic beverages is often called brewing. Most every culture has there own tradition and the own take on beer, thus producing many different styles and variations. Simply put, a beer style is a label given to a beer that describes its overall character and often times its origin. It's a name badge that has been achieved over many centuries of brewing, trial and error, marketing, and consumer acceptance. There are many different types of beer, each of which is said to belong to a particular style. A beer's style is a label that describes the overall flavour and often the origin of a beer, according to a system that has evolved by trial and error over many centuries. According to the type of yeast that is used in the beer's fermentation process, most beer styles fall into one of two large families: ale or lager. Beers that blend the characteristics of ales and lagers are referred to as hybrids. An ale is any beer that is brewed using only top-fermenting yeasts, and typically at higher temperatures than lager yeast.......

...widespread market demand for craft beer was set to explode. He and the team had steadily developed their premium-quality handmade ales for nearly fifteen years, and their loyal customer base was strong. In the last year alone, he’d forged alliances with both Starbucks (for the purposes of co- branding a coffee- flavored brew) and A-B that had purchased a capped 25% interest in AB in exchange for access to its national distribution networks and accounting systems. Shipman had overseen significant capacity increases, with plans on the horizon for yet another brewery in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. He had worked hard to position AB favorably for expansion, and the public offering would provide the necessary capital. But how would the “microbrew” feel of AB translate to the largescale commercialization and growth pressures of the open market? Producing and distributing microbrews on a large scale was a new concept—and like any new concept, it would have to be sold. Shipman hoped to sell craft beer—and lots of it—in the heartland of America. Revolutionary Beginnings Shipman thought back through the determined, tumultuous beginnings of the company he had helped to found after graduating from the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia in 1980. AB was brought to life in 1981 in Seattle, Washington by Shipman and his friend Gordon Bowker, who had previously founded and run Starbucks for twelve years and who wanted try his hand at beer.

A global strategy works best in markets that are globally competitive or beginning to globalize." Corona Extra has been the world’s fourth best selling beer in terms of volume in 2005 due to its strategy in differentiation. Corona marketing campaign of “fun in the sun” and its light and citrus flavor helps products to expand its target customers far beyond its competitors. However due to merger and acquisition that occur in the industry, Corona needs to adjust itself in order to sustain its growth and improve its competitive position. 5-Force Analysis Rivalry (High Threat) * There is competition from both domestic products and import products as well as threat from merger and acquisition which large company may dominate the industry as they might gain advantages from cost efficiency and market share after merging. New Entrants (Low Threat) * There is low threat from emerging entrants since the large companies will have advantages in economy of scale. Also new entrants will need to have heavy start-up cost of capital. Substitute (High Threat) * High threat from substitute because there are various kinds of liquor in the market. Altogether with non-liquor drinks in the market are also considered as substitutes for beer. Consumer (Moderate) * Since there is price sensitive for beer in the market, company needs......

...Case Analysis for Corona Beer (Modelo) BUS599 Identify and discuss the trends in the global beer markets There is a common item found at sporting events, entertainment venues, restaurants, bars, and mainly in the refrigerators of Americans. This item is beer. Of the 67% of Americans who consume alcohol 42% prefer beer (Frank Newport, 2010). Beer consumption is continuously increasing not only in the United States but also globally. There are several trends within the global beer market which accounts for the potentials seen throughout the industry. One of the main trends of the global beer industry is the growth rate. The growth rate globally over the past five years is reported at 3.5%. “The largest contributors to this growth have been China (now the world's largest beer market), Africa and Eastern Europe” (SABMiller Investors, 2011). Another trend seen in the industry is consolidation. At the beginning of the twenty first century there were ten major brewers accounting for one third of the beer sales. Today there are four top brewers which include “Anheuser-Busch InBev, SABMiller, Heineken and Carlsberg – accounting for almost 50% of beer sales volumes and up to 75% of the global profit pool” (SABMiller Investors, 2011). This is due to the increase in consolidation. Another trend in the beer industry is premiumisation. This term refers to the sales of premium beer brands. “As economies improve, the trend towards premium will resume as consumers......

De Beers

...n previous years De Beers owned a key resource for diamond production – mines. The monopoly’s power stemmed from the company’s ability to collect the world’s rough diamonds and send them out again, anonymously and bereft of origin. Because of turmoil which the company was facing on all fronts: illegal flow of diamonds from Sierra Leone and Angola, Russia’s diamond fiefdoms, etc; the formerly closely-held corporation had to undergo some rapid changes. Today De Beers maintains its monopoly power through marketing activities such as active advertising, e.g. the millennial campaign which was the company’s first attempt to brand gems, to sell a “De Beers diamond” rather than a regular diamond. De Beers tries to remove substitutes for its product and to make it unique in order to increase its market power. The possible substitutes for diamonds can be emeralds, rubies and sapphires. If people view them as diamond’s substitute, De Beer’s market power will be relatively little. On the other hand, if the company tries to increase the price for its product, some people can switch to other gemstones. That’s why De Beer’s makes so much effort to distinguish its product from any others and to support its image of a scarce and unique product. De Beers supports a symbiotic relationship between production and sales. The formation of a single marketing channel contributed to the diamonds price increase. In the past two and a half decades, rough diamonds have out-performed commodities such as...

Types of Beer

...1. A. Types of beer Yeasts that ferment at warmer temperatures, usually between 15.5 and 24 °C (60 and 75 °F), form a layer of foam on the surface of the fermenting beer, which is why they are referred to as top-fermenting yeasts. Yeasts that ferment at considerably lower temperatures, around 10 °C (50 °F), have the ability to process a chemical compound known as raffinose, a complex sugar created during fermentation. These yeasts collect at the bottom of the fermenting beer and are therefore referred to as bottom-fermenting yeast. The majority of beer in production today is fermented in this way and is called lager. Beer style Beer style is a term used to differentiate and categorize beers by factors such as color, flavor, strength, ingredients, production method, recipe, history, or origin. The modern concept of beer style is largely based on the work of writer Michael Jackson in his 1977 book The World Guide To Beer in which he categorized beers from around the world into style groups according to local customs and names.[1] In 1989, Fred Eckhardt furthered Jackson's work publishing The Essentials of Beer Style.[2] Although the systematic study of beer styles is a modern phenomenon, the practice of distinguishing between different varieties of beer is ancient, dating to at least 2000 BC. The study of what constitutes a beer's style may involve provenance,[3] local tradition,[4] ingredients,[5] and/or empirical impression, which is conventionally broken down......

Mountainman Beer

...light of this decline, Chris Prangel, a second generation brewer, is considering launching Mountain Man Light beer. The light beer market has experienced a 4% annual growth over the past six years and represents an opportunity to boost sales by entering a previously untapped market. Background: MMBC relies on its core image of being a family owned, independent brewery. MMBC’s beer formula is associated with quality. The specialty hops and barley in Mr. Prangel’s recipe have added to MMBC’s reputation of superior quality in the East Central region. In particular, the hops used in this recipe create a “bitter” flavor, which differentiates it from their competition among other mass-produced beers. MMBC’s bottles take differentiation one step further; the lager is bottled in a dark brown glass with original images of 1925 of coal miners printed on the front label. Launch: If Prangel were to launch a new light beer under the MMBC brand name, the brewery would be able to capitalize on the Mountain Man Brewing label and reputation. MMBC’s core demographic—males between the ages of 45-64 years old—is shrinking. The growing consumer segment for beer consumption is younger drinkers between the ages of 21-27 years old, which accounts for over 27% of the total US beer consumption and is growing. Many of these younger consumers prefer light beer. The light beer category in itself accounted for just over 50% of overall industry sales volume in 2005. However, there are...

Beer Brewer

...Process Design The Stone’s standard brewing system is composed of a mash tun, a lauter tun, a wort kettle and a whirlpool. They work together and help to finish the main steps of beer brewing which can be divided to Mashing, Lauterring, Boiling, Fermenting and Filtering. Stone Brewer is boast of its brewing system, not only because they are the efficient and are the import part to the good beer, but also because they always use recycled water for washing and other use in the whole process and they have made a great contribution to the resource saving and environment as well. Mashing Mashing is the process of mixing milled grain, especially malted grain with water, and heating this mixture up with rests at certain temperatures in a vat called a ‘mash tun’ to allow enzymes in the malt to break down the starch in the grain into sugars. It usually takes 1 to 2 hours for Stone to mash and during which various waiting periods lead to different enzymes depending upon the type of malt being used, its modification level and the desires of the brew master as well. The activities of these enzymes convert the starches of the grains to dextrines and then to fermentable sugars such as maltose. Lautering Lautering is the separation of the extracts won during mashing from the grain. It has two stages: i) wort run-off, during which the extract is separated in an undiluted state from the spent grains, and ii) sparging, in which extract which remains with the grains is rinsed off with......

Boston Beer

...1 The Boston Beer Company, Inc. Making a buck at craft brewing has been as easy as falling off a barstool the last few years. So Wall Street is now bellying up for a couple of IPO brewers. They’d better start chugging; the party won’t last long. The intoxicating roundup of offerings began in August when Redhook Brewing, a specialty beermaker started in Seattle by former wine marketer Paul Shipman and Starbucks co-founder Gordan Bowker, tapped the market. The stock was priced at $17, never traded below $24.75 and was recently at $27.25. Again, investors went on a bender last month when Pete’s Brewing Company hit the market. The stock, priced at $18 a share, closed its first day of trading at $25.25 and hasn’t sold below $23.75 yet. Boston Beer, of Sam Adams fame, will roll out in mid-December; the Northwest’s Hart Brewing, which makes Pyramid Ales, is not far behind. 1 Eileen Gunn Fortune Magazine, December 11, 1995 Company Background History Boston Beer Company (BBC) was founded in 1984 by Jim Koch, who was the sixth generation of his German family to become a brewmeister. During the early 1980’s, Koch observed the changing tastes of American beer drinkers toward more flavorful, bitter tasting beers which were offered initially only by import companies. Convinced by what he viewed as a compelling market opportunity and inspired by his family’s tradition, Koch decided to leave his $250,000 per year consulting job and start his own domestic beer company......
