BESTMALZ®

Originating in 1899 in a little German town called Kreimbach-Kaulbach  BESTMALZ® was founded on humble roots, starting as a flour mill which was transformed into a malting unit after only five years.

Now, BESTMALZ® is a clear leader in the German malting community. With an impressive inventory of malts, they have become internationally renowned and appreciated by brewers from all around the world.
