• Man Picking Malt Growing In Field

MALT WITH A MISSION

Connecting the farm to the fermenter since 2010.

We work tirelessly to forge a connection between the land and the craft beverage industry. The results bring new varieties, flavors, and value to the consumer.

Why Us?

Local grain, local malt, local beer

Malt production has consolidated over the past 150 years, reducing the variety and flavor available to brewers and distillers. Riverbend is disrupting the agri-business controlled malt industry by sourcing locally and building flavors that highlight the terroir of our region.

Malt in Brewing & Distilling

Supporting family farms

We have built long-term relationships with our growers. This foundation ensures a steady supply of high-quality grain and supports Southern agriculture.

Local Farmers

Our recipes are driven by a quest for fresh, consistent flavor. We blend both new and heirloom varieties in an effort to showcase our local agriculture.

Work directly with our experts to develop flavors.

We love a challenge. Brewers and distillers have come to us with ideas and inspiration. We channel that passion into process to create unique custom malts. Whether you want an origin specific Pilsner malt or something darker we can make it happen.

The world of brewing and distilling offers so many opportunities for flavor development. Let us help you make something truly unique.

Small batch and large scale

We designed the Gerber Road facility to meet the needs of all of our customers. Floor malting remains at the heart of what we do. Pneumatic equipment answers the call for larger projects.
