Fantastic news from London: six Weyermann® beer specialties convinced at this year’s World Beer Awards and were awarded gold, silver and bronze medals!
This is the sixth award in a row for our brewery at the international beer competition!
Triple country winner
In the three subcategories “Lager – Seasonal: Maibock/Helles Bock”, “Lager – Dark” and “Flavoured Beer – Smoke” our brewing specialties were able to assert themselves and win a gold medal.
Two beers from our Bamberger Hofbräu® line are among the gold medal winners, the Weyermann® Bamberger Hofbräu® Schwarzbier and the Weyermann® Bamberger Hofbräu® Maibock. The Bamberger Hofbräu® brand has belonged to our family malting company since 2006. Since then, the beers of this traditional brand have been brewed according to the original recipe in our brewery – we currently have nine Bamberger Hofbräu® specialties in our portfolio!
Our popular classic with the No. 1, our Weyermann® Schlotfegerla®, which is a full-bodied, dark smoked beer with fine beech wood smoky notes and a distinctive malt taste of dark chocolate and bread crust and which has already received multiple awards, was also awarded gold.
All three gold award-winning beers achieved the best results in a national comparison and were therefore selected Germany Country Winner!
Silver medals went to our No. 6, Weyermann® Bamberg Rogg’t, in the subcategory “Specialty Beer – Rye, and our No. 39, Weyermann® Hop into Spring, in the subcategory “Lager – Hoppy Pilsener”.
Last but not least, we are happy about bronze for our Weyermann® Eraclea Mediterranean Pilsner, brewed with Weyermann® Eraclea Pilsner malt from Italian Eraclea barley.
“Obviously, I am extremely happy that our creative work is valued in this way! As a team, we do our best every day to delight our customers worldwide with our unique brewing specialties! I am proud of our team performance and I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our bosses, who always encourage us in our actions and thus give us the opportunity to exploit our potential – with wonderful results!” – Weyermann® master brewer Constantin Förtner rejoices over the success of his team.
We are incredibly proud of the achievement of our committed brewery team – congratulations on the well-deserved award and recognition of your hard work!
The World Beer Awards honor international beers in ten main categories and associated subcategories every year. An international jury of experts – with our Weyermann® brewmaster Constantin Förtner being one of the experts – is responsible for evaluating the submitted beer specialties. This is followed by the awarding of gold, silver and bronze medals and the selection of the “Country Winner” and “World’s Best”.
All winning beers and many other brew creations from our Weyermann® brewery, including the Bamberger Hofbräu® beers, are available in our Weyermann® shop Living & Drinking on Brennerstrasse in Bamberg and in our Weyermann® online shop!
