Recap BrauBeviale 2016

Think digital! Discover the potential of digitalization.

The craft of brewing is going digital! Digitalization is not only changing our everyday lives, but also affecting entire industry sectors. It is influencing the way in which ideas and products can be turned into reality, and creating completely new possibilities throughout the lifecycle of a product or system.


Also, in order for companies to stay competitive in the brewing industry, the intelligent linking of virtual and real world plays an increasingly important role in meeting the growing demands for productivity, quality and flexibility.


At BrauBeviale, we demonstrated over a three-day period what your digitalization story could look like. Our consistent, end-to-end product and software landscape can support you, for example, from the first concept for a new variety of beer to theactual production, bottling and packaging, along with the maintenance of your systems. Whether for creating a new recipe, tracking down overcapacities by simulating the brewing and bottling process, or controlling production and the bottling using BRAUMAT and the TIA Portal, Siemens not only offers the software, but also a complete, innovative product portfolio for the automation and electrification of your plant – from the field to the management level.


We were able to welcome many visitors who took the chance to create their own personal digitalization story with us. And we look forward to welcome you – in November 2018 at the latest, at the next BrauBeviale.


The digital Brewery

Taking diversity into account


A beer for Werner

500 years “Reinheitsgebot”
This year something very special is brewing: 2016 marks the 500th jubilee of the world's oldest food law. In 1516, the Bavarian co-rulers Duke Wilhelm IV and Ludwig X issued a decree in Ingolstadt to the effect that henceforth, only barley, hops and water could be used in the brewing of beer. The "Reinheitsgebot" was born, and its fame has since spread around the world. German beer is one of the country's most popular exports, with around 1.5 billion liters shipped to foreign shores every year. A high proportion of brewers rely on technology from Siemens to prevent any disruptions to production and keep the golden liquid flowing freely.

Plant Simulation for Breweries – Simulate, analyze and optimize your production

Especially with new construction, renovation or expansion, complex, interdependent processes can occur and their effects can be difficult to estimate. Plant Simulation enables you model and simulate both the material flow as well as the vat dimensioning in a brewery, and therefore react accordingly in planning phase for the project. You can also optimize existing plants, thus saving energy and other resources. We will be happy to show you the various models for plant simulation at the BrauBeviale 2016.
