Weyermann® Brewing Barley Producer Award – Harvest 2023

February. The month in which we honor the excellent work of our delivery partners by awarding the Weyermann® Brewing Barley Producer Award!

With this award launched in 2012, we honor the special achievements of our regional grain farmers. It is important to us to express our appreciation to our loyal delivery partners – after all, quality begins on the field!

This beautiful and valued traditional event brought together our bosses, our team from the raw materials purchasing department and the award-winning farmers in the Weyermann® Visitors Center. We were particularly pleased that our invited special guest, Thurnau Mayor Martin Bernreuther, took part in the celebrations this year as well!

The traditional festive evening began with a warm welcome, followed by a tour of our company to show our farmers how our unique Weyermann® specialty malts are made from their high-quality brewing barley.

In the cozy ambience of the Weyermann® Visitors Center, our boss Thomas Kraus-Weyermann and Timo Haselmann, Raw Materials Purchasing & Goods Accounting, then presented the idea behind the Brewing Barley Producer Award before the award ceremony began.

Each farmer received a hand-made and hand-painted plate from the traditional Schnauder & Sanke pottery workshop in Thurnau, a Weyermann® polo shirt embroidered with his name and a copy of the Weyermann® history.

This year we awarded the following: Kathrin Heisinger (Ködnitz),Silvia Herold (Thurnau), Christian Pfaffenberger (Thurnau), Johannes Herold (Weismain) as well as Harald and Heike Unger (Thurnau).

A 3-course menu with the perfect choice of Weyermann® brew specialties to go along with it rounded off the successful evening.

We would like to thank our farmers for the fruitful cooperation, their loyalty to Weyermann® Malts and wish them continued a good hand in the cultivation of high-quality brewing barley!

Many thanks also go to our lovely organization and decoration team for the wonderful preparation and support of the event as well as to the party service Ludwig for the delicious catering!
