Mainstem Malt to Market

Mainstem Malt and our current partners have lots to be thankful for this holiday season. Together, we successfully linked some of the strongest grain growing locales in the country to the craft beer and spirits industries. We've also done it in a way that drives innovative on-farm water conservation and diversification within the malting industry. Since our partners are the key to our success at Mainstem Malt, I'd like to take a moment to acknowledge their efforts.

First, there was the high yielding, premium quality, 100% Salmon-Safe certified and dry-farmed malting grain harvest, thanks to the Rea and Johns families (and the weather). Then the top notch mobile cleaning jobs squeezed in amongst record breaking rains this autumn, thanks to Frank Hager of Custom Seed Conditioning. Then our first and spot-on malting batches by Joel Williamson of LINC Foods/Palouse Pint. Plus speedy logistics from Stephens Transport and IEDS. And of course, the multitude of other minds and hands pitching in along the way. Turns out it takes a village to pull off a supply chain that most people didn't even know existed.

Now we get to the REALLY exciting part. It's the part where your favorite craft brewers, distillers, and bakers start to feed Mainstem Malt into some exciting new products. Beers, spirits, and breads that are better for the environment, better for family farms, and better for your palate. And at the end of the day, it's your mission-driven purchasing power that keeps the whole effort going and growing. Quite the responsibility, I know, but I believe folks out there are ready to embrace it.

Mainstem Malt has come to market with a pretty nifty little supply chain, but our journey to influence the broader malting industry has just begun. As we move forward, I hope you grow to see us as the hardest charging force in malt supply chain water conservation. I hope you enjoy an unprecedented level of connection between people and a supply chain we should all care deeply about.

Believe in us, work with us, enjoy with us, and I have no doubt that we'll craft a brighter future together.

With a passion,

Phil Neumann
