“providing quality malt for local brewers”

Riverbend Malt House pledges to provide the area’s craft brewers locally farmed, artisan malts that bring depth and character to your passion, while greatly lessening our impact on the earth. Currently, the malted products market is dominated by large‐scale producers located in the western United States and Europe. They ship millions of pounds of 2‐row and 6‐row barley on an annual basis to clients on every continent. These mass operations require all grain to be purchased on a global-commodities market and shipped thousands of miles. As a result, an enormous amount of fossil fuel, water, and petrochemicals are used to produce a majority of the craft brew currently consumed throughout the world. We are the alternative to these practices. We have personal relationships with local farmers and regional brewers. By supporting the local farming economy, we provide guaranteed returns on an annual basis. We work closely with our farmers to implement best management practices (BMPs) that reduce sediment and nutrient loading to the adjacent streams and waterways. As a result, the average number of food miles associated with each batch of malt will be reduced from 3,000 miles to 300 miles. This equates to a reduction of 4.5 tons of carbon emissions for every truckload of grain.
