Abstract

Three novel strains isolated from brewery environments are described. These strains were Gram-positive, facultatively anaerobic, heterofermentative rods that did not exhibit catalase activity. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity showed that these strains belong to the genus and are most closely related to (approximately 99 % similarity). The novel strains could be differentiated from on the basis of DNA–DNA relatedness, differences in beer-spoilage ability and the inability to utilize -fructose. These isolates represent a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is LA2 (=DSM 15502=JCM 11969).
