Weyermann® Brewing Barley Producer Award 2018

Manfred Kolb, Rainer Schwarz, Rudolf Eberlein, Hans Lauer Werner Hopfenmüller were the happy farmers, who received the Weyermann® Brewing Barley Producer Award 2018 yesterday!

With the award, launched in 2012, we want to reward the special merits of farmers to provide high quality brewing barley. In addition our aim is to promote the regional brewing barley cultivation in Upper Franconia.

Our bosses Sabine Weyermann and Thomas Kraus-Weyermann, Weyermann® Management fourth generation, gladly honored our loyal suppliers. They presented every farmer with a handcrafted and painted plate from the traditional pottery in Thurnau, a Weyermann® polo shirt embroidered with their names, and a Weyermann® chronicle, signed by our boss Sabine Weyermann.

The farmers proudly accepted the congratulations of our bosses as well as Franziska Weyermann, fifth Weyermann® generation, our grain purchasing team around Aishagul Schleicher and our team in Leesau around Werner Lindner.

Matching the 3-course menu in the evening, our beer sommelier Dorothea Wächtler presented the various Weyermann® beer specialties, which originate from our farmer´s brewing barley. Thus our guests were able to enjoy the flavor variety of our beer specialties Bamberg Rogg´t, Oaktober Weizen, Bamberger Hofbräu® Export, Oatmeal Stout and IPA.

Our farmers will certainly keep the great day at Weyermann® Malts in best memory for a long time.

We look forward to many more successful years of cooperation with our more than 500 local farmers – our valuable and loyal partners - and raise our glass to a good harvest in 2018!

A big thank you goes to Aishagul Schleicher and Werner Lindner with their teams for organizing the event, to our head decorator Ulrike Buhrmann for the great decoration of our Visitors Center and to Dorothea Wächtler for a wonderful presentation of our beer specialties.
