Our Story

We contract for special lots of grain from conservation-minded family farmers, malt it at partnering craft malt houses, sell the finished malt to brewers and distillers, and help share a compelling supply chain story with beer and spirits fans globally. We're also developing a tech platform: Headwaters. Its primary goals are to engage consumers with compelling supply chain story, manage market opportunities for artisan products made with our malt, and accelerate progress in our industry.
Our Ambition

In 5 years, we hope to be one of the largest craft malt companies in the world, with a Northwest flagship location and a satellite location in Alaska. We will be among the lead innovators in regenerative grain farming, the terroir of grains, and applied malt science. We will be actively using our novel tech platform to engage consumers and accelerate progress in our industry. These projections cannot be guaranteed.
