TOMORROW'S GREAT BEERS START HERE

Skagit Valley Malting is creating a new malting paradigm, providing brewers with Single Variety Malts that highlight varietal flavor, character and brewing performance.

Our malts – naturally lower in protein than those from other North American growing regions – perform better for non-adjunct brewing. Skagit Valley produces barley with characteristics similar to UK or German barleys, which provides brewers with greater control over wort composition and more appropriate levels of protein artifacts, such as FAN and other solubles that can cause excessive color, hazing or flavor instability.

Our malt process versatility extends beyond variety and grain type to malt style as well. We produce highly uniform, precision batches that range from low-color, lightly modified base malts to highly kilned Munichs, melanoidins and caramels. We can also process smoked, peated, organic and low-gluten malts.

Using locally malted, Skagit-grown grain is a triple win. Growing barley and grains specifically for craft brewers is a win for farmers; grain’s positive impact on Skagit soil is a win for Planet Earth. Finally, building awareness of the many flavors of malt and building Skagit’s very special ‘taste of place’ is a win for Fremont and Fremont customers.

When we first started brewing back in 1989 we had to import malts from Europe to get the highest quality ingredients. Today, thanks to Skagit Valley Malting, that has changed. Now we are able to use locally grown, farmer-direct malts which are superior in flavor for our craft beers. We look forward to the day when the majority of our beers are brewed with craft malts from local farms.
