vew-logo.png BREWING SYMPOSIUM 2023

The Association of Former Weihenstephan Brewers ("VeW") will celebrate its 125th anniversary from June 16 to 18, 2023. For this event weekend, we as the organizing committee have designed a Brewing Symposium that combines knowledge transfer, convivial exchange and personal encounters in a varied program. No location could be more suitable for this symposium than that of our alma mater in Weihenstephan, Freising, where science and tradition, cultural and artistic history meet.

The program consists of an appropriate mix of professional, social and cultural components. In addition, we will show how the Weihenstephan campus has developed over the past years. Structural and institutional changes as well as the work in research and teaching will be demonstrated through institute as well as plant tours on the university and college campus as well as the city center of Freising.


Founded over 150 years ago, the Brauer Cursus gave the starting signal for a successful development at a high level and worldwide reputation. The VeW association is always working to preserve the unique reputation.
