Baton handed on - 64 billion pints worth of malt later

When Euan Macpherson joined Crisp Malting Group in 1987, the company was making 120,000 tonnes of malt a year. During his tenure, production has more than trebled to an annual output of 430,000 tonnes: 5% of EU output. This means that Euan has overseen the production of enough malt to make over 64 billion pints of beer, enough to give every person in the UK 1,000 pints each.

Euan is retiring following a lifetime career in brewing, distilling and malting. Adrian Dyter, previously from Boortmalt and Carlsberg, has been shadowing Euan for a short period, and has now fully taken over as Crisp Malting’s managing director.

Adrian Dyter, currently global category manager at Carlsberg, will succeed Euan Macpherson in the early summer. Euan will be retiring after 29 years with Crisp and a lifetime career embracing the brewing, distilling and malting industries.

Earlier this year, Crisp Malting Group introduced a very limited amount of Chevallier Heritage Malt (about 4 tons) to be distributed by BSG CraftBrewing to various customers. Chevallier was the first true malting barley variety first selected in the 1820’s and has been brought back to commercial production by Crisp Malting Group.

"Malt is the new hops." - that’s a statement we’ve been hearing lately from brewers. The demand for unique ingredients is driving innovation in beer styles, flavor, and malthouse production.
