Lahnstein | International Gruitday on February 1st was created to celebrate gruit beer, a beer with herbs instead or in addition to hops, according to medieval traditions and recipes. In former times, hops were not available for brewers in most regions. So they had to use herbs like gale, porse, rosemary, caraway or laurel to provide taste and shelflife to their beers.

Germany | Since the European Beer Star was inaugurated, promoting diversity in beer has been at the heart of the competition. With its style categories, the European Beer Star was conceived as a vehicle for familiarizing consumers with the beer styles of the world and conveying a beer culture that is lived in the various regions of Europe, the countries of origin of the respective beers. But what characterises the individual beer styles, and what do experts from the countries of origin have to say about them? To answer these questions, we embark on a journey through Germany, Poland, Belgium and Italy.

Gräfelfing | The national and international Water Sommelier training programme is an established part of Doemens Academy based in Gräfelfing, Germany. The international courses, held in English, are particularly popular. However, there are also many people from Spanish-speaking countries interested in these course. And, of course, the question often arises whether Doemens could also offer a Water Sommelier course in Spanish. From 9–20 September 2024, Rosa Elena Pita Coelho will be leading the “Sommelier de Agua” course at Doemens for the first time with ideal training conditions.
