Our work starts with farmers and their grain, and we take that dynamic seriously.

All malt and grain under the Mainstem brand is sold in single varietal, single farm, and single field format, then transformed into premium malt at one of our partnering craft malt houses. 

We track yield and common factors for each grain lot and malt batch. Our small batch recipes hold their own as the solitary malt used in beer and spirits recipes. With this approach, we strive to empower beer and spirits fans with tools to tease apart nuance in malt flavor across variety, geography, and seasonality.

To be totally honest, this grain terroir stuff is uncharted territory and we're not quite sure what we'll discover. But regardless of what we find in terms of flavor, a hyper-transparent production format helps us connect folks to agriculture in a way that is undeniably real.
