111 years Saatzucht Breun - Weyermann® joins in to celebrate!

Yesterday the Saatzucht Josef Breun GmbH & Co. KG (plant breeding company) celebrated its 111th anniversary and Weyermann® Malts was there to celebrate!

Gladly our bosses Sabine Weyermann and Thomas Kraus-Weyermann, Weyermann® management fourth generation, and several Weyermann® managers, followed the invitation of Saatzucht Breun to Herzogenaurach and celebrated together with numerous international guests.

The Franconian family business Saatzucht Breun breeds winter wheat, winter barley and spring barley. One particular brewing barley type, which is very important to us, is Barke®. It is the perfect brewing barley to create authentic and aromatic craft beers. For Barke®, we hold the exclusive distribution rights worldwide except in Germany and Finland and can thus make craft brewers even happier by offering distinctive malts to produce unique beer specialties.

During the event, our Weyermann® ambassadors enjoyed various lectures, among others from Prof. Dr. Ludwig Narziss, the international exchange and of course also delicious Weyermann® beer specialties, which were specially brewed for this occasion with our Weyermann® Barke® malt and which were served in our red-yellow “thirst-quenching truck”.

These beers were the Weyermann® Barke Classic, a golden, shiny beer with emphasis on the interesting aroma of the Barke® malt and the bitter hop notes, and the Weyermann® Asano White, a bright orange, nearly amber-colored, full-bodied top-fermented wheat beer. As a present, all guests received a bottle of each to take home with them.

Many thanks go to the Breun family for inviting us. Cheers to many more successful years of cooperation!
