Meura is proud to announce the formation of Meura North America to better serve the brewing, distilling and malt extract markets in the U.S.A. and Canada. Aegir BrewingSystems will join the new organization as an integral part of Meura North America and reinforce Meura’s existing activity in the North American market.
Since its founding in 2012, Aegir Brewing Systems has supplied state-of-the art brewhouses designed and built aroundthe Meura2001 mash filtration technology. The increasing popularity of this technology in the North American market, combined with Aegir’s local knowledge and Meura’s globally recognized, technological leadership makes this move a logical progression for both companies.
The new Meura North America team of brewing specialists will be based in the Milwaukee area. Our ambition for the coming years is to further grow the local team and to increase Meura’s presence in North American breweries and distilleries!

Aegir - The leader in mash filter brewhouses for craft brewers.
Welcome to Aegir
Aegir Brewing Systems was founded in 2012 with the support of Meura to bring mash-filter brewing to smaller craft brewers in North America. Mash filtration is not new. Meura invented it over 100 years ago and today over 25% of the world’s beer production is made with a Meura mash filter. But, it is not widely used in North America - a great competitive advantage for early adopters here.
All Aegir systems, from 15 BBL to 100 HL, are designed around the Meura2001® mash filter. As a result, we have become experts in craft-scale, mash-filter brewing and get more from this remarkable technology than anybody else.
Aegir brewhouses are fully automated and designed with the brewer in mind. An Aegir system provides unmatched yield, productivity, reliability and grain bill & batch size flexibility.
An Aegir brewhouse with Meura mash filter routinely delivers extract yields above 98%, and 100% is not uncommon. Compared to a lauter tun brewhouse, hop consumption will be 5-15% lower and water savings of 20% and more is possible as well as many other cost saving features in our brewhouse design. Cost savings often exceed $5/BBL!
Aegir brewhouses are designed and built using instrumentation, control systems and automation normally found in much larger systems. Typically, an Aegir system can produce 2 brews in 8 hours, 4-5 brews in 12 hours, 5-6 brews in 16 hours, or 8-10 brews in 24 hours with just a single brewer per shift.
Because a mash filter has more than 5 times the filter area of a lauter tun and uses low pressure rather than relying on gravity to extract the wort from the spent grains, it is possible to brew with grains that would amaze a lauter-tun brewer.
The ability to use rye, wheat, oats and gluten-free grains like sorghum, buckwheat and millet, means a wider range of beer styles can be produced easily. It is also possible to use a portion or higher proportion of unmalted grains to reduce raw material costs where the beer style allows.
Due to Aegir’s unique brewhouse design, it is possible to efficiently produce brews between 40% and 110% of the rated capacity of the system. The
Aegir Insight Control System allows over 24 parameters to be programmed by recipe, including temperature and time rests to give the brewer their desired carbohydrate profile.
Whether ales, lagers, stouts, sours or anything else, an Aegir system can produce the perfect wort with repeatability.
