    RTC Beers at CBC 2018

     

    The Rahr Technical Center Brewery has been busy brewing for the past several months, and you can have a chance to sample the results at the 2018 Craft Brewers Conference in Nashville. The RTC beers encompass a wide range of styles highlighting the flavors and aromas of some of the ingredients available from BSG’s suppliers.

    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.

    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.
