The 2022 Craft Malt Conference has been transitioned to an all-virtual experience for 2022. This educational conference was originally slated to take place in Portland, Maine, but the rapid rise in COVID-19 cases and lower in-person attendance numbers motivated the Guild Board of Directors to make the difficult decision to move the event online. Our organization is committed to protecting the health and safety of all our community members. The Craft Malt Conference will now take place over the course of two weekends February 18-19 and February 25-26 via Crowdcast. Learn more about event changes in our latest press release.


The Early Bird Deadline for Virtual Conference Registration has passed (January 31st). Conference rates are now $200 for Guild members and $250 for non-members. Registration will remain open until Wednesday, February 16th.

Craft Maltsters Guild members enjoy heavily discounted early bird rates, as well as exclusive access to our Members Only educational content and forums. Join or renew here to get the best deal on CMC 2022.

Craft Malt Con Online Scholarship

The Craft Maltsters Guild is committed to providing equitable access to education and opportunities in the craft malt industry to anyone interested.

Additionally, each scholarship recipient will receive a complimentary one-year Individual Membership with the Guild. With this membership, recipients will be able to continue their craft malt education throughout the year by accessing our extensive video and webinar archive, as well as attending upcoming educational webinars and joining in discussions on Guild member forums about craft malt-related topics.
