Brewery uses 'Brux Trois' yeast; turns award-winning flagship beer into tropical oasis

SAN DIEGO, March 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- By using a newly developed Belgian yeast strain in an award-winning IPA, Ballast Point continues to showcase its innovative spirit with Aloha Sculpin, the latest addition to the Sculpin IPA family - now available nationwide.

Aloha Sculpin IPA features a distinct yeast strain known as Saccharomyces "Bruxellensis" Trois, or Brux Trois, turning the flagship IPA into a tropical oasis with aromas and flavors of guava, mango, and pineapple without any fruit additions. While Belgian yeast strains are known for their clove and banana-like aroma, this strain bears exotic fruit aromas. It also adds a slight haze to the beer, creating a smooth mouthfeel to round out its juicy character.

Not only does this yeast strain add a unique flavor profile to the brew, but its use in Aloha Sculpin marks the first time an IPA brewed with Saccharomyces brux Trois is being packaged and made available nationwide.

"We're always experimenting with new ingredients and methods," said James Murray, vice president of brewing at Ballast Point. "Most brewers tend to experiment with hops for flavor and aroma. But when we tasted the guava, mango and pineapple notes from this yeast in other R&D recipes we brewed, we knew it would really enhance the bright, tropical fruit characteristics already present in Sculpin IPA."

Innovation is a part of Ballast Point's DNA and has been a critical part of the brewery's success dating back to the days of Home Brew Mart. As a pioneer in the San Diego craft beer movement, the brewery currently makes over 50 styles of beer, each with innovation and quality in mind. Experimenting with Brux Trois yeast is a testament to this focus.

"This strain is a bit finicky," said Lauren Zeidler, director of quality at Ballast Point. "It's very particular about what it likes and doesn't, so we had to get to know its preferences and adjust accordingly. It was a unique challenge, but it made the brewing and batch scaling even more of a satisfying accomplishment."

The original Sculpin IPA launched in 2005 and has since become the hallmark of the west coast-style IPA, winning gold medals at the World Beer Cup (2010, 2014) and European Beer Star (2010, 2011). Years later, the Sculpin family has expanded to include Grapefruit, Pineapple, Habanero, Unfiltered - and now Aloha Sculpin.

Aloha Sculpin IPA is a spring/summer seasonal release under Ballast Point's flagship tier and is now rolling out nationwide in both draft and six-pack bottles.

Despite Brexit Uncertainty, Business Schools in UK Continue to See Strong International Demand19.3.2019 09:00:00 CETPressemelding

Majority of Candidates Say Brexit has No Impact on Decision to Study in the United Kingdom RESTON, Va., March 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In response to the initial Brexit vote in June 2016, the Graduate Management Admission Council™ (GMAC™) has been tracking Graduate Management Admission Test™ (GMAT™) examinee interest in studying in the UK. This has included periodic surveys of non-U.K. citizens who sent a GMAT score report to a UK business school program, as an indication of where they are interested in studying. In the immediate aftermath of the vote, it was unclear what the impact would be on the international flow of students to UK programs, which are heavily reliant on enrollees from other countries. Brexit, it’s been feared, could restrict or complicate the student visa process and dampen international candidates’ postgraduation job prospects in the UK, both because of possible changes to work visa policies and jobs leaving the UK. However, the most recent survey findings, fro
