The 128-year-old malthouse housing Mich. Weyermann & Co. KG Malzfabrik is a protected historic site. But behind the red-brick turn-of-the-century exterior lies the modernized heart of the world's leading manufacturer of specialty brewing malts. Presided over by Sabine Weyermann, a fourth-generation member of the founding family, and her husband, Thomas Kraus-Weyermann, the company benefits as much from its roots in the past as it does from its recent expansion and modern overhaul. For over a century, Mich. Weyermann has been pursuing a policy of providing customizable, brandname specialty malts to breweries large and small, first in Bamberg and nearby regions, and currently to customers in virtually every continent of the world. Aided by new facilities and equipment, the company is better able than ever to serve its more than 900 customers worldwide, including future prospects in Asia and the United States. Tradition and up-to-date training are personified by the husband/wife team, both of whom graduated from the Weihenstephan school in nearby Munich, where Weyermann products are sampled by masterbrewers-to-be from all over the world. About one-third of the company's regular rotation consists of specialty malts; the remainder is geared toward keeping Germany stocked with Pilsener. All malting is done to individual order in amounts ranging from 25-kg sacks to export-size containers.
