Brandon Ade, Blacklands Malt
Brandon Ade is the driving force behind malting barley production in Texas. Before 2013 malt was not produced in Texas for the brewing, distilling, and baking industries. Not one to wait around for someone else to solve the imminent need for Texas malt, Brandon founded Blacklands Malt in 2012, the first independent community malthouse in Texas history. Like many small malthouse operators across the country, Brandon’s passion is to take the good sense of sustainable local food production and connect people to the land around them through unique foods and beverages. His experience with malthouse operations has now led him in to professional malting consultation as well.
Brandon spends his free time in Austin Texas with his wife Samantha, sons Hadwin and Bruce, and two fur-babies Riker and Barley. He plays acoustic guitar to wind-down and officiates weddings for very close friends. He was trained in malting at CMBTC in Winnipeg.
