Our malts are handcrafted from field to flavor beginning in the most fertile growing regions of North America, and ending in our malt house where our world-class maltsters use their expertise to skillfully refine barley to meet the distinctive specifications of craft brewers. The difficulty – but also the fascination – of our maltsters’ craft is their ability to transform living, natural products that are variable by their very nature into a wide variety of standardized products that deliver highly consistent flavors, colors, aromas and performance every time. Discover our complete selection of kiln-dried specialty malts and their distinctive qualities below.
