2017 Vintage

A year of growth. Starting off with our first sales, we took a bet and contracted 200 dryland acres. The rains delayed spring seeding far beyond average. 185 acres were dry enough to seed. Meanwhile, Joel Williamson at LINC Foods was knocking it out of the park on our early malt batches. We formed many great and growing relationships with brewers, slinging rental car trunkloads to pallets of malt for assorted special release beers. Copperworks Distilling bought enough malt to keep us in business. It was a "million dollar rain" year for the winter wheat; spring crops narrowly saved from drought. Crop music videos. 2017 was fairly epic.
