Beer has always told a story about who we are. Nomadic tribes came together to celebrate their harvest and community with beer and we are still doing the same today. When our malt is crushed it is continuing its journey from field to beer and creating new opportunities for brewers. We offer a direct and transparent link to local farms and malt bags filled with distinct flavors and aromas. Mother Nature has fueled innovations, flavors and regional styles of beer for thousands of years. Valley Malt exists to provide this vital link.
