Avangard is the largest producer of brewing grains in Germany, and as such has the best buying power, the top production plants and the best supply chain of any German malt producer.

You're thinking - "I already have a German grain, why do I need Avangard?" There are three simple answers. Quality, price and convenience. Avangard supplies most of the top German and European breweries that are well known names. Most of these breweries produce European lager style beer, a clean and simple style that shows off any flaws in the malt. Therefore, they look to Avangard to get the highest quality base malt available. Avangard's multiple state-of-the-art malting facilities strategically place them near grain producers to assure the freshest and highest quality malt.
