How a “golden” beer is brewed with BESTMALZ – featured on DMAX

Two men, one mission. Andreas and Mat are old buddies, and they share a great passion: the hunt for gold! Out in the Australian wilderness, the adventurers hope to make the big strike. But how did they fare during the pandemic? Matthew Vaughan continues his search for the rare gold nuggets on Australian soil, and Andreas Macherey simultaneously launches several projects in Germany. Film teams accompany Andreas and Mat to produce season 5 of “Gold Fever in Australia (Goldrausch in Australien)”. Broadcasting began on Wednesday, March 30, 2022, and the new episodes run on Wednesdays at 9:15 p.m. on DMAX.

One of the projects of entrepreneur Andreas Macherey from the vicinity of Trier is to brew Goldnugget beer! To do this, he buys an old brewery in Naurath (Eifel), which has been abandoned for several years. His idea: to integrate a very special gold nugget, which he and Mat found in Australia, into the brewing process. He is assisted in this by master brewer Markus Lotz. As for the brew, Markus Lotz relies 100% on BESTMALZ. Without further ado, he personally picks up the malt for the first brew at the Wallertheim malthouse. “When choosing the malt supplier, regional proximity played a role, but also the good experience in terms of quality and service,” explains the brewmaster. And just how good has it turned out, the Goldnugget beer? “A beautiful golden color” – “Very good foam stability” – “Fine bubbly carbonation” – “A balanced malty taste” are some of the reactions from the BESTMALZ team. Anyone who wants to try the Goldnugget beer for themselves can order one of the limited six-packs from the beginning of May at

You can watch the brewing with BESTMALZ on DMAX at the end of Season 5 with the broadcast scheduled for April 27 at 9:15 p.m. You can find the show’s website here:
