BierConvent International e.V.



We mourn our honorary senator Otto-Ernst Prehn

He went on his last trip on December 13th at the age of 91.
Otto-Ernst Prehn was a notable in our club for 45 years and one of our two honorary senators.
He accompanied many offices during this time.

The Bierconvent International not only loses a notable friend, but a very deserving member of our association.
Otto-Ernst Prehn was always on hand to assist the Presidium and the Senate.
His legitimate questions about our annual financial statements were always characterized by great expertise.
Only with his help was it possible to put our association’s large “photo album” on our homepage.
Otto-Ernst Prehn has been to countless friendship meetings to the last.
He did not miss the chance to entertain us on so many evenings with his excellent piano playing.
As a close listener, he was just as astute as a brilliant storyteller.
The positive way, paired with his own sense of humor has always amused us all.
Our solidarity belongs to his family and in particular to his wonderful wife Ebi, who will always be a welcome guest.

Dear Notable,
dear members,
dear friends of the beer,

We would like to welcome you to BierConvent International and wish you lots of fun with our information about one of the oldest and finest drinks in the world.

Of all the drinks in the world, none is as common in all countries and continents as beer. In all the layers of the population of this earth, beer, as the oldest man-made drink, has conquered over the millennia in multiple variations a permanent place for refreshment and enjoyment.
So what is better suited, regardless of all social and national differences, as a friendly mediator from person to person, to serve the encounter, the conversation and the conscious search for common ground than the beer?

This fundamental idea led to the founding of BierConvent International in 1965.

What we do

BierConvent International sees itself as a worldwide brotherhood. The association pursues exclusively and directly non-profit purposes in the sense of the charity regulation of 24 December 1953, in particular by the promotion of the social awareness raising and thus the people education by research, care and education about the 7000 years old cultural drink beer.
