Washington State native Matt Drew heads up marketing and sales for Montana Craft Malt. Prior to joining the MCM team, he produced delicious, quality malt designed for all-malt distilling as the Maltster for Bently Heritage Estate Distillery in Minden, NV.
Matt also brings with him a deeply rooted passion for craft brewing and distilling that he’s been pursuing since the mid-90s.
Matt is uniquely qualified to take on this role given his professional experience in the craft malt industry, but also that which he’s gained throughout a career spanning two decades in marketing, advertising, graphic design and media, where he’s worked with brands such as Claritin, McDonald’s, Chevrolet, MGM Grand Las Vegas, and MGM Hospitality, the global development arm of MGM Resorts.
He holds advanced malting certifications from the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre and iFBM/Craft Maltsters Guild. He also holds a WSET-2 (Spirits, with distinction) and is a Cicerone Certified Beer Server.
In his free time, Matt loves music, travel, creating art, and spending time outdoors with his wife, Teresa, daughter, Skye, and their dog, Dusty.
