Malteurop welcomes the 2020 Beer Now Bloggers conference to Great Falls, Montana, home of one of Malteurop’s four North American Malthouses. We look forward to hosting the Beer Now attendees for an afternoon picnic on the Malteurop front lawn, Thursday, June 6th. Join us to learn more about Great Falls barley and malt produced for Craft Brewers.
At Malteurop, we’re champions of the hard work that goes into farming barley, creating exceptional malt and brewing uncompromising beers. And as craftsmen ourselves, who come from a rich heritage of barley farmers and old-world malt artisans, we’re innovators and seekers of what malt can be. We’re also down-to-earth—we still believe in rolling up our sleeves and taking the time to do it right.
Great Falls Barley
Montana is where some of North America’s best barley is grown and malted. The region has an abundance of natural resources and excellent growing conditions, including the clean air of big sky country and quality water sources like the Giant Springs of Great Falls. Pair those outstanding natural resources with the time-proven commitment of the local growers and the result is some of the highest quality malt you’ll find anywhere. The barley growers of Montana are repeatedly recognized for their high level of dedication and excellent farm practices.
Malteurop is the only commercial maltster with its own Barley Breeding Program. Based in Great Falls, our North American Barley Breeding Program is constantly creating new barley varietals that produce higher yields, require less irrigation, and meet the distinct needs of our craft brewers. Great Falls growers collaborate to grow trials and support the development of each new generation of barley varietals.
Sustainability is at the heart of Malteurop’s efforts in the Malthouse. Our sustainable water practices—giving preference to non-irrigated barley, reducing water consumption during malting, and ensuring quality of water after malting.—are just one example. Investments are also made into smart energy systems and recyclable materials for malt bags, all in an effort to improve our sustainability model.
Making Great Beer, Every Step of the Way
As a farmer-owned Malthouse, we take pride in developing lasting customer relationships that start in the field. Our unique perspective and appreciation for the craft of growing exceptional barley has instilled in us a healthy respect for the uncelebrated hard work that goes into making great beer, every step of the way.
