The Swaen won the Bronze Brewing Supply Award in Vienna
The Swaen with the bronze medal:
Our malt house makes 48 flavours of malt for every type of beer. Each with their own story and local origin.
WHERE IT ALL BEGINS…
The Swaen has been working closely with farmers in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen since 2001. The goal of this cooperation is the sustainable improvement of the barley crop and the building of the correct chain structure. This collaboration created “Growing the Swaen”, an initiative that focuses on sustainable agriculture.
At the moment there are 40 farmers growing The Swaen barley on about 300 ha with an average yield of 8 ton per ha.
The cooperation enables us to trace the quality in every stage of production. As well separte storage of all barley: per variety, per region, per supplier. These factors guarantee the availability of high quality malt.
