Our Malt

Taking a seed from what appears to be a lifeless, hard, and bitter tasting kernel into a toasty, friable, and sweet treat is alchemy. Malting requires the discipline of a scientist, the back of a mule, the wonder of an artist, and the humor of a grumpy grandpa. As maltsters, we strive to best express the flavor and character that comes from each farm and each batch of grain.
