Famous for roasted malts, the Weyermann family traces its roots back to 1510 and has been in the grain business since 1871. The trademarks Carapils® and Caramünch® were registered around 1908. During WW2 the Potsdam portion of Weyermann was destroyed by bombs and the subsequent Russian occupation. All their East German business was lost as well as their equipment. All the Weyermann family survived the war except one brother lost on the Eastern Front. After the war, Rudolf and Carl Weyermann in West Germany were suspended from the Company due to de-Nazification. Today, Weyermann is a team of 240 highly motivated and well-trained staff members who ensure that you will always receive nothing but true Weyermann quality. Sixty staff members hold diplomas or advanced degrees as professional brewers, maltsters, brew masters or brew engineers. Weyermann produces over 80 different types of malts that are distributed to 135 different countries.
