Beer & beer mix beverages

Specialty beer

In addition to standard beers like bottom-fermented Pils beer, special and craft beers are also enjoying increased popularity. In Germany, this applies in particular to top-fermented wheat beer which started its triumphal march in Bavaria. Looking at markets outside Europe, however, there are other exotic types of beer such as African sorghum – a beer obtained from the millet species of the same name. Brewing technology from GEA plays a growing role in the production of these special beers.
