PROJECT OVERVIEW:

Since 2015, Mainstem Malt has worked with family farms in Washington and Oregon to grow premium quality, Salmon-Safe certified, dry-farmed malting grains for the craft beverage industry. With much love and a bootstrap budget, we’ve partnered with leading-edge craft malt houses to turn our growers' raw grain into quality malt. Our next big step is a Walla Walla-based craft malt hub in the heart of grain and wine country.

NORTHWEST HUB
Walla Walla, Washington
