BSG is the exclusive distributor of Weyermann® Barke® malts to brewers in North America. This heirloom barley once enjoyed the highest reputation among German brewers and was the most widely used barley variety. Barke® brings an intense malt flavor, full-body and helps promote conditions for improved head retention.
Located on the outskirts of the epicenter of world political power in Washington D.C., the majestic barley fields of Germany combine inside a 1950s industrial building where Jeff Hancock (Head Brewer, President and Co-Founder of DC Brau Brewing Co.) brewed an Oktoberfest formulated with Barke® malts.
