Brewery Local: Montgomery Brewing

Brewery Local: Montgomery Brewing

Before eating local, shopping local, sourcing local and anything else local was in vogue, there was a time when the distinction did not exist because everything was simply local.  With a tinge of nostalgia, this blog shines a light on some of the BSG customers that sow the seeds of reemergence of the small “local” brewery.

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.
