5 August 2014As craft beers become increasingly popular in South Africa, local brewers are raising their game. Stellenbosch brewery Stellenbrau’s Craven Craft Lager beat some 38 finalists from around the world to win the prize for best lager at the 2014 Global Craft Beer Award contest in Germany two weeks ago.Speaking to SAinfo this week, Stellenbrau’s marketing manager, Jaco van der Linde, attributed their success to the fact that “we use the best ingredients we can put our hands on; we import our barley in from Germany to get the right taste in our beer.“We also follow the traditional brewing styles and still do a lot of our brewing by hand,” Van der Linde added. “We analyse our brewing process in the finest detail to ensure our beer is consistent when the beer leaves for the market.”Stellenbrau is a newcomer on the local craft beer scene. Owner and entrepreneur Deon Engelbrecht established the brewery in 2011, and only started production on the lager in June 2012.Engelbrecht was introduced to craft beer while on a business trip to KwaZulu-Natal in 2010, after having stopped drinking beer for quite some time. “This ignited a new-found love for beer, especially craft beer”, he told SAinfo.Engelbrecht decided to start the brewery in Stellenbosch because of its “rich culinary culture, the convenient location, its thriving businesses and of course, its student population, who provide a platform to seed the brand and with whom we can build a loyal base.”He began the brewery “with a solid vision for the business, and to brew the finest, consistent craft beer on the market. I decided to only start selling our beers via draught taps in the market as a way to seed the brand in the market place.”Teaming up with Stephan de Jager, an experienced brewer with a solid technical background, Engelbrecht learnt about beer as he went along. With patience, hard work and late nights, the brewery developed to what it is today. While there are a few institutions and businesses that offer training, many craft brewers learn by trial and error.Today, Stellenbrau’s has a dedicated team of 10 running the brewery, producing the Craven Craft lager and Alumni Ale brands. The are also tours for visitors interested in seeing the process from start, which includes why they use hops and what difference the choice of grains make, to how their beer is packaged.De Jager oversees the brewing, as malted barley is crushed and moved to the mash tun to start the process. Aside from the actual process, staff have to keep the brewery clean and make sure the fermentation tanks are kept at the right pressure and temperature. Kegs need to be filled up and delivered to customers and bottling lines sorted once that is in action.Van der Linde says they are one of a few craft breweries who produce lager, and aim for top quality. “We recently launched a Rooibos and Honeybush infused lager. This was done after years of research at Stellenbosch University, and to ensure it stays South African, we’ve patented the recipe of the beer. Part of our mission is to only brew a few varieties of beer to ensure consistency.”He says that while it’s very difficult to compare the standard of craft beer in South Africa, where 95% of independent breweries have been going for less than five years, to brewing giants such as the US and Germany, which have decades of brewing experience, he believes the country is capable of competing strongly in international events.The brewery aims to launch their bottles to the market soon, in order to expand their reach throughout the Western Cape and the rest of South Africa.“We are looking into expanding our brewery to keep up with the growing demand in craft beer, and will then bring in a taproom where the public will have hands-on experience with our beer and enjoy our brewing setup,” Van der Linde says.“We will introduce some more beer varieties over the course of time with some seasonal beers, but still in keeping with our mission and vision to make selected, high-quality beers.”
In the aftermath of the spot-fixing episode during the Pakistan-England Test series last year, the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) has geared itself up for the upcoming World Cup.ICC chief executive officer Haroon Lorgat said here on Tuesday that the ACSU, an independent arm of the game’s world governing body, has tightened its belt for the 45-day tournament beginning on February 17 with an opening ceremony in Dhaka. The first match will be played between India and Bangladesh on February 19 in the same venue.”We have prepared well and will deploy more people. Yesterday and today the whole staff of ACSU assembled and prepared a strategy. We can handle any situation.If needed, we will deploy additional officials,” he said at an MoU- signing ceremony between the ICC and Hyundai, its new car partner from 2011- 2015.Lorgat also said if betting was legalised the incidents of spotfixing and match-fixing could be brought down.”If betting syndicates are legalised then it will be easy to regulate. Where it is not regulated it will go underground. If betting is legalised then it will be far easier to manage the issue of temptation towards corruption,” he said.”In countries like Australia, England, there is a regulatory industry. So we would like to find a way in which the whole industry can be regulated and that’s what we are exploring.” Betting is illegal in India and Pakistan. But in neighbouring Sri Lanka, its Parliament passed legislation in November to legalise betting and gambling in the island nation. Now licenses will be issued for people to run casinos etc.advertisementIn December, after Pakistani players allegedly bowled no balls in exchange for money in a Test against England, former India captain Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi touched upon the raging issue, saying that it ” hurts” to hear that world betting syndicates have roots in India.”Everybody said the money (for betting and fixing) emanated from India. That is an accusation that hurts but it rings true, especially for those of us who live in this country and have been reading about the scams that have been taking place in the last few days and weeks,” he said at an event.Interestingly, Indian courts have also made observations on the controversial topic. A Delhi court in October even commented that Parliament should consider legalising it. ” It is high time that our legislature seriously considers legalising the entire system of betting online or otherwise so that enough revenues can be generated to fund various infrastructural requirements for the common man and thus check the lucrative business in organised crime,” said additional sessions judge Dharmesh Sharma.But members of Parliament have been almost unanimous in shooting down hints of a debate on legalising betting, which rears its head usually during international cricket matches in India and often abroad too.On hot-spot technology, Lorgat reiterated that due to paucity hot- spot cameras the latest technology would not be used during the World Cup. ” We were always aware that there was a limited number of hot- spot cameras in the world and it was always going to be a case where we could not deploy it in all of the matches during the World Cup,” Lorgat said.”So it’s no surprise to us and I don’t believe it a setback because the other specifications we have got is sufficient to improve correct umpiring decisions by more than five per cent.So we are quite satisfied with other technologies available to support the umpires.” The technology, with its black and white images traces the trajectory of the ball hitting the bat or batsman, helps the third umpire take decisions referred to him by his on- field colleagues as part of the umpire Decision Review System (DRS). DRS will be used for the first time in a World Cup, being jointly hosted by India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Twitter/@RedditCFBOklahoma captured the Big 12 championship last weekend in Stillwater, making today’s Baylor vs. Texas game all about pride for the Longhorns, and potential bowl positioning for the Bears. While Baylor entered the game as a heavy favorite, the Longhorns channeled whatever it was that allowed them to upset the Sooners earlier this year. On the game’s final play, Texas nearly picked off Baylor’s Johnny Jefferson to seal a 23-17 victory over the nation’s No. 12 team.Texas Wins! pic.twitter.com/8WcxfEeCHw— RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) December 5, 2015On the bright side, one lucky Baylor fan is going to enter the “viral sad fan hall of fame.” Okay, maybe that’s not really the “bright side.”This is what losing to a 4-7 Texas team can do to a person #TEXvsBAY https://t.co/a2ElzjjQtF— RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) December 5, 2015With an early injury to third string quarterback Chris Johnson, Baylor was forced into using wide receiver Lynx Hawthorne behind center. He only managed to complete 10-of-22 passes, and threw two picks. No matter what, we think Charlie Strong and his team will take this win, and the momentum it brings, into the off-season.
zoom Singapore’s container terminal operator PSA has set November 28 as the deadline for claiming laden containers from South Korea’s bankrupt shipping firm Hanjin Shipping.In its notice to cargo owners, consignees, shippers and freight forwarders, PSA said that if the containers and the cargo remain unclaimed after the set date, the company “will take steps to dispose and/or sell them as we may deem fit.”The terminal operator added that the deadline was set “to ensure that we maintain an optimal port capacity to serve all our customers and partners.”Once a refundable deposit in the amount of SGD 5,000 (USD 3,530) per container has been paid to ensure the return of empty containers for consolidation purposes, the container can then be transported out of the port area. PSA said that the deposit would be refunded after the unstuffed container is returned to its yards.Since September 2016, PSA has been working closely with Hanjin Shipping and other parties to facilitate the delivery of local import containers, as well as the loading and transfer of transhipment containers bound for other destinations.The South Korean shipping firm filed for court receivership on August 31, 2016, after its creditors decided not to provide additional financial support to Hanjin.World Maritime News Staff

Despite its .823 winning percentage under coach Jim Tressel, OSU maintains a lackluster 2-4 record when coming off a bye week. With its last loss after a week off coming from the Nittany Lions in 2005, OSU looks to buck the trend. As one of four one-loss teams atop the conference standings, the Buckeyes’ Big Ten ambitions depend solely on their performance down the stretch. That starts with Penn State. The two squads are no strangers to jockeying for position in the Big Ten against one another. When a Big Ten title was on the line in 2008, a costly fourth-quarter fumble by OSU signal caller Terrelle Pryor dashed the No. 10 Buckeyes’ Rose Bowl aspirations and virtually punched No. 3 Penn State’s ticket to Pasadena, Calif. Last year’s meeting in State College, Pa., had similar implications but produced a much different result. Paced by 228 yards on the ground and an efficient performance from Pryor, the No. 15 Buckeyes upset the No. 11 Nittany Lions, 24-7, and moved one step closer to a Rose Bowl trip of their own. This year’s bout has significant but different Big Ten ramifications. At 6-3 (3-2 in the conference), the Nittany Lions look to play the role of spoiler, while the Buckeyes (8-1, 4-1) are fighting for a second straight Rose Bowl bid. They must remain perfect to get there. A Wisconsin loss would help their cause as well. On paper, OSU seems the overwhelming favorite. However, the Nittany Lion faithful have seen a revitalized Penn State team of late. Winners of three straight and averaging 36.3 points per game during that span, the Nittany Lions have been sparked by back-to-back 100-yard rushing performances from 2009 first-team All-Big Ten selection Evan Royster and the emergence of sophomore quarterback Matthew McGloin. Those wins have come against Minnesota, Michigan and Northwestern. The Silver Bullet defense is a different beast. Ranking third nationally in total defense and fourth in rushing defense, the Buckeyes will be no easy task for Royster and Penn State. Add 105,000-plus scarlet-clad, screaming fans, the ESPN College GameDay gang and a potential sixth straight conference title to the mix, and it appears as though this contest is OSU’s to lose. Although OSU handily defeated the Nittany Lions in Happy Valley a year ago, don’t think the Buckeyes will forget what happened in Columbus the previous year. Ask Purdue about the whole revenge thing. Couple that with a new and improved Pryor under center along with the lingering bad taste from Wisconsin, and the Buckeyes seem poised to continue their high flying show in the ‘Shoe. Either way, as the college football season comes to a close, no victory will come easy.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKingston, Jamaica, December 19, 2016 – New Mayor of Kingston, Senator Councillor Delroy Williams, has pledged to work to build a spirit of partnership and cooperation among councillors in order to effectively and efficiently carry out the work of the Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAC). Speaking at the installation ceremony held at the KSAC’s downtown Kingston offices on December 15, Senator Williams lauded the former administration led by Senator Councillor Dr. Angela Brown Burke and pledged to improve on the legacy.“They have made our work far easier, as we go forward,” he said. “They continued the work of the previous Council headed (then) by our Minister of Local Government and Community Development (Hon. Desmond McKenzie)…and they improved on it,” he noted. “We invite you to work with us as we (seek to) work together as one in the spirit of unity, cooperation and friendliness, as we move forward to govern in the interest of the people of Kingston and St. Andrew,” he added.Meanwhile, Senator Williams said he will be seeking to work more closely with key stakeholders such as the Ministry of Transport and Mining, Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), and vendors. Noting the challenges associated with traffic congestion across Kingston, he said there is need for the Corporation to “begin the dialogue” with the Ministry to address the issue. “There is a lot of valuable economic time (that) is lost in traffic. We must have a concerted effort with the Ministry of Transport to see how best we can ease congestion in the city,” he pointed out.Senator Williams invited the JCF to “join us in driving the economic life of the city”, pointing out that “we must eliminate crime in our city by creating opportunities for our people.” As it relates to the vendors, he noted that the Corporation will be looking to work with them in order to create the environment for their business to flourish. Senator Williams noted that vendors are critical players in the vision to make Kingston the most prominent capital city in the Caribbean and will be dealt with “with soft hands.”“We are all significant players in the economic life of the municipal Corporation (and) we must coexist…in a mutually respectful manner…to sustain the life of the city,” he said. “(However)…we say…to the vendors, you must also understand that order is important. Work with us in creating this order and we promise you that you will quickly see the economic benefits. You will reap greater profits as more and more shoppers take comfort from this order,” he pointed out. #MagneticMediaNews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#MagnetiicMediaNews
