Riverbend Malt House creates unique, high-quality malt for the brewing and distilling industries, sourced from local, family owned farms and produced in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
Hear about Riverbend from our founders, Brian and Brent.
We start with the finest grain available in the southeast which must meet both our exacting standards and those of the American Malted Barley Association.
We carefully malt using both historical hand-raking techniques as well as pneumatic on our state-of-the-art system. And we test every single batch both internally and via third party testing laboratory.
We won’t sell malt that is anything but great. Nothing is shipped until it has passed stringent requirements for flavor and performance.
Environmental stewardship is a core Riverbend value, and we make every business decision with the environment in mind.
Most malt on the market is grown and malted several time zones away – perhaps even in another country or on another continent. The travel distance and time has implications not just for malt quality but for our planet, which is one reason why we source locally.
We have also implemented a waste recycling program with local farmers that converts 90% of our solid waste into feed for pork and beef.
