It’s always exciting to see our membership and their craft malt stories make headlines. Here are this quarter’s malt in the media kernels.

Craft Malt Certified™ brewery Wye Hill in Raleigh, North Carolina got the spotlight for their Luminous Beings IPA in Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine. Wye Hill invests in 100 percent craft malt from member malthouses Carolina Malt, Epiphany Craft Malt, and Sugar Creek Malthouse. 

We’re thrilled to see media coverage of the craft malt-focused events that are emerging— including LINC Malt’s Grainmaker Festival that you can read about on the New School Beer Blog.

Thanks are in order for the publications that helped the Craft Maltsters Guild extend our Executive Director search, including Brewer Magazine, Craft Spirits Magazine, and Craft Brewing Business

Our hard-working community tackles many challenges to craft high-quality, flavorful malt. Alberta Farm Express conveyed some of those challenges and the rewards that come with them for several malting companies in Canada, including members Red Shed Malting, Hogarth Malt, and Origin Malt. 

Only In Your State dug into the ethos at Craft Malt Certified™ brewery Arizona Wilderness Brewing, showcasing their investment in Sinagua Malt. 

Don Tse, craft malt’s resident pun-ster, published a corny article on malted maize from Riverbend Malt House in Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine’s Brewing Industry Guide. Naturally, the headline is pretty punny. 

Craft Brewing Business overviewed the latest news across the malt industry, including the American Malting Barley Association report that cited barley acreage has increased by 4 percent. Also of note, eleven breweries across the country are crafting beers with Regenerative Organic Certified Kernza as part of Patagonia Provisions’ new brewery partnership program and Food21 of Pennsylvania has launched a regional malted barley branded as Allegheny Mountain Malt produced in collaboration with CNC Malt.
