Their aim is to both unlock and capture California’s terroir in their malt, offering a truly exceptional ingredient and experience. Mecca Grade is an estate malthouse located on 1,000 irrigated acres in Oregon. A grain growers’ paradise, their location in the rain shadow of the Cascades provides hot, dry days and cool nights perfect for growing specialty seed and grain.
South / TexMalt is a craft malt house located in Texas with a vision to bring local heirloom grains to brewers and distillers across the region. They also offer custom milling for customers who cannot or choose not to mill their own grain on site.
Southeast / Riverbend Malt House is based in North Carolina and pledges to provide craft brewers locally farmed, artisan malts that bring depth and character to their passion, while greatly lessening our impact on the earth. Ingredients for brewers and distillers define the attitude of your product. At Murphy & Rude Malting, their name captures ours.

Midwest / Black Gold Malt Farm was brought into existence by a fourth generation Iowa farming family whose brewing and bootlegging roots helped purchase the home farm 100 years ago. Maltwerks is a Midwest malt house focused on genuine relationships in offering quality, locally produced, traceable malt to craft brewers in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Wisconsin. A partnership with Maltwerks means brewers work side-by-side with their maltster to produce the exact malt they need. This creates a much larger palette of flavors to work with when fine-tuning ales in an increasingly competitive market. Large, corporate malt providers won’t give you the details of the exact cultivars of barley used to make their malt blends, or specific growing location. Maltwerks maintains close relationships with local farmers, so brewers know exactly what barley was used and the characteristics they can expect on a molecular level. This means fewer surprises in brews, better consistency, and less product and investment going down the drain.
