The Versuchs- und Lehranstalt für Brauerei in Berlin is a members association and was founded in Berlin in 1883 by German brewers and maltsters. For more than 125 years VLB has been working in the field of research, development and training for the brewing industry. Today, around about 120 people work at the VLB in the fields of research, teaching, information, consulting and service.
In September 2014 VLB organizes for the 5th time a symposium about brewing and filling technology for the Iberoamerican brewing and beverage industry. After the success of the foregoing symposiums in Seville, (Spain, 2008), in Mexico City (Mexico, 2011), in Petrópolis (Brazil, 2012) and Buenos Aires (Argentina, 2013) the event will move back to its origin to Spain.
Sulca, as a leading representative of brewers, will be present at this symposium to be held from the 17th to the 19th of September in the city of Madrid.
