AIBA Award-winning Australian brewer wins trip to brew with Weyermann® in Germany


Cryermalt is proud to award a special trip for one Australian brewer to visit Weyermann® Specialty Malts in Germany. Bringing together a talented brewer with one of the world’s leading specialty malt producers, the trip includes a chance to brew a collaboration beer at Weyermann®.

Cryermalt announced the winner today – Michael Capaldo, head brewer at Sydney Brewery, who enjoyed recent success at the Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA), garnering medals for eight of their beers, all containing Weyermann® malt.

Michael Capaldo says “at Sydney Brewery we are dedicated to brewing the highest quality beer possible, and one of the key ingredients in this process is malt. We have found Weyermann® base and specialty malts to have a flavour profile that is perfectly suited to our award winning lagers and ales. Along our journey Cryermalt have been providing our brewery with excellent technical and logistical support over the years, and we are very proud of the relationship we have forged with both Weyermann® and Cryer. “

Michael has always had great success brewing with Weyermann® malt. At last year’s Australian International Beer Awards Sydney Brewery also won a ‘Best European Style Lager’ trophy for one of their beers, ‘Lovedale Lager’, brewed using 100% Weyermann® malt.

Weyermann® is delighted to welcome Michael Capaldo to their premises in Bamberg and to provide the opportunity for collaboration between brewing and malting professionals.

To celebrate the 25th year of the Australian International Beer Awards, Cryermalt are once again are pleased to be able to foster connections across the world, between a celebrated Australian brewer and a world-renowned producer of premium specialty malts.

David Cryer, director of Cryermalt, is “pleased that this is able to go to someone like Michael, who has been such a great proponent of Weyermann® malts and the use of them in his beers. I’m sure this experience of meeting the people and getting to see how the malt is made will further enhance this relationship”.

Release ends.
