Meura is an iconic brewery equipment manufacturer whose fame and reputation has been built around the creation of the Meura filter which revolutionised the production of lager beer by considerably reducing the production time. This visit will offer the opportunity to discover the place where your Meura brewing equipment is produced, meet the team and discuss their craft and upcoming innovations with them. The visit is not available to competing equipment manufacturers, though.

Meura, founded in 1845 in Belgium, is specialized in the design and manufacturing of brewing equipment.

During this EBC-Brewers Forum, we’ll be pleased to present you our latest technological innovations like:

The HYDROMILL is designed especially to mill green malt (=malt before kilning). The (partial) introduction of green malt or green malt extract is an option for the brewers to further reduce their carbon footprint.

The Meura2001 is the leading technology for mash filtration in the brewing industry. Since its introduction about 30 years ago, the technology has continuously been improved. And today, about 25% of the global beer volume is produced in a brewhouse equipped with a Meura2001! Come and discover the next generation of the Meura2001!

The Meurastream GREEN is a brewhouse concept with the aim to reduce the steam consumption and excess of hot process water. We’ll be happy to share with you the first industrial feed-backs of this revolutionary concept!

Of course all our other state-of-the-art technologies will also be presented, like for example the Classicmill (hammer mill), the Carbomill (milling under CO2 atmosphere), the Mechamasher (mechanical premasher), the Meurabrew (Meura’s continuous brewhouse) etc.

Moreover, should you be interested in knowing more about our company and discover our premises and workshop, be welcome to the site tour organised on Thursday May 30!

We are very excited to welcome you there or here!
