With regard to the Technological Seminar Weihenstephan 2024 we would like to give you important information on the event date.

Originally, the seminar was planned for calendar week 11 - as it always should be in the future. Unfortunately, it became apparent that this would clash with the dates of our colleagues in Berlin. At the request of several seminar participants, also in consultation with the VLB Berlin, we have decided to postpone the seminar this time exceptionally to calendar week 12 .
The updated dates are therefore as follows:

At the 20th Raw Materials Seminar, everything will revolve around the raw materials brewing grains, water and hops. The technical presentations will be followed by the presentation of the Berlin program and the growers' meeting by invitation. The day will come to a pleasant end in the Stephanskeller of the Weihenstephan brewery restaurant together with the VEW regulars' table.
Then, on March 19 and 20, 2024, the 56th Technology & Engineering Seminar will take place. A special focus of this seminar will be the use of AI technologies in the brewing and beverage industry. The detailed program will be published promptly on the homepage of the Weihenstephan Institute for Brewery Research (WIB).

There is also good news regarding the date shift. Namely, the Bavarian Evening of the second seminar day on March 19, 2024, will coincide with the traditional Josephibock tapping of the Chair of Brewing and Beverage Technology. This offers a great opportunity to experience and enjoy Bavarian culture and brewing tradition up close.

The events will take place in the usual atmosphere on the Weihenstephan campus.

Please mark the new dates in your calendar. You can download the currently planned seminar program (as of December 18, 2023) via the following link (in German):

Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to welcoming you to Weihenstephan in March 2024, when the motto will once again be: Science for Practice!

From June 16 to 18, 2023, on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the Verband ehemaliger Weihenstephaner der Brauerabteilung e. V.
