Given annually during our Craft Malt Conference, the Soles of Malt Award is named in memory of William Soles and stands for selfless and philanthropic stewardship of craft malt. The recipient of the award should embody these traits. The 2023 award recipient will be announced on Friday, March 17 during the 2023 Malt Cup Awards Ceremony, held during our annual Craft Malt Conference.

The winner will be chosen by a committee led by Guild co-founder and award creator, Twila Soles of Grouse Malt House, as well as past award recipients. The award winner will receive a $500 scholarship to provide an experience for learning and collaboration. The scholarship funding must be applied toward connecting and collaborating for the betterment of their soul and craft malt.

Applications to nominate community members for the 2023 Award will open in November. Check back for updates.
