Big Sky, Pure Flavor

Together with growers, scientists, maltsters, brewers, distillers and food makers, we tap into the incredible versatility of barley – to create extraordinary works of edible and drinkable craftsmanship.

Headquartered in Butte, MT, we have the great fortune to work near the world’s best barley-growing region. Alongside top independent growers, surrounded by snow-fed rivers, under giant blue skies, and nearer to pure human ingenuity, we craft classic and artisanal malts unlike anywhere else.

We are constantly exploring ways to enjoy an ancient grain, and blazing the trail to a more flavorful future.

A Barley Obsession

Here in the heart of Big Sky country, we’re ideally situated to help producers tackle the challenge of reliably sourcing novel, first-rate ingredients.

We confess, we get pretty excited about malt and its boundless possibilities. Working with the top independent barley growers in Montana, we have unique access to the world’s best raw material, and that feeds our curiosity to craft bold new malts with exceptional flavor profiles.

We’re designing a broad selection of homegrown malts for lagers, ales, and pilsners, as well as specialty blends like Vienna and Munich malts, low-color crystal malt, and wheat- and oat- based malts.

By now you’ve probably figured out: We’re really into malt.


From each kernel of barley to the finished product, craftsmen know that flavorful beer, spirits and foods find their essence in superior ingredients.
