February 22 - February 24



MaltCon2024, the Craft Maltsters Guild’s annual conference + trade expo, brings together university, agriculture, malt, and beverage professionals from across the globe as the only conference of its kind, offering workshops and seminars specifically focused on malt research, topics, and best practices.

This year, MaltCon2024 kicks off with a Welcome Reception from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. on February 22, 2024, at The Rake @ Admiral Malting, in Alameda.  Join friends and colleagues, take a tour of the malthouse, sample collaborative beers, nosh on good food, and get ready to talk all things craft malt. Tickets are required and can be purchased here. We are also offering transportation to and from UC Davis for the reception.

Then get ready for two full days of panels, seminars, and rapid fire sessions at the University of California Davis Conference Center on February 23-24, 2024.

We have two powerhouse speakers joining us for MaltCon2024.  First is the inestimable Pat Hayes from Oregon State University.  He will talk about bringing out the best (and dealing with the worst) in barley. Then on our second day, Boortmalt’s Xiang Yin will discuss how to reduce your environmental impact and continue to produce high quality craft malt.  In between are numerous sessions and topics to feed your curiosity, broaden your knowledge, and sharpen your malting skills. This year, all sessions are consecutive so you won’t miss out on any hot topic you’re interested in. Stay tuned! We’ll announce more in the coming weeks.

We wrap up MaltCon2024 with the Awards Dinner and Closing Party on Saturday evening, February 24.  You’ll hear who the winners are from the 2024 Malt Cup Judging, the Soles of Malt recipient, and much more!
