Despite several hurdles, which hinder bacterial growth in beer, certain bacteria are still able to spoil beer. One type of spoilage is characterized by an increased viscosity and slimy texture caused by exopolysaccharide (EPS) formation of lactic acid bacteria (LAB). In this study, we characterize for the first time EPS production in a beer-spoiling strain(More)
Lactobacillus brevis represents one of the most relevant beer-spoiling bacteria. Besides strains causing turbidity and off flavors upon growth and metabolite formation, this species also comprises strains that produce exopolysaccharides (EPSs), which increase the viscosity of beer. Here, we report the complete genome sequences of three EPS-producing,(More)
