Sierra Nevada & Goose Island brew with Crisp Chevallier Heritage Malt

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.

Chevallier Heritage Malt

"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.  

Humulus U - West 2015

September will be here quicker than you can say, “do you have some Citra?”, which means BSG will soon be working hard on processing hops at our new facility, visiting with brewers for selection, and once again throwing Humulus U for professional brewers!

Rahr Corporation’s Shakopee, Minn., Location to Expand Malting Capacity

Rahr Corporation, along with Rahr Malting Co. and Brewers Supply Group are happy to announce Rahr Corporation’s expansion plans.

The plans include the construction of four new facilities: a malt house, pilot brewery and technical center, maintenance warehouse, and distribution center. New parking, green space, ponding, and other site improvements are also part of the plan.

Rahr 50lb. Bagged Malt – information now printed on gusset of bag

Starting on April 9th, Rahr will begin printing the lot code, date code, product name and product sku directly onto the gusset of the bags. The colored tag will still be attached, but there will no longer be standard analysis/certificate of analysis (COA) information listed on the tag. 

 

BSG Canada

Brewers Supply Group Inc. (BSG) is pleased to announce the acquisition of Gilbertson & Page (Canada) Inc. (G&P). We see a tremendous opportunity to join two established and successful brewing ingredient supply companies and bring to the Canadian market more products while capitalizing on G&P’s long standing tradition of customer service and premium product selection. The new company will be called BSG Canada and we are very excited to be a part of the Canadian market.

BSG Hops Processing Facility

BSG has made a significant investment in a new hop processing facility in the Yakima valley area of Washington. This new facility means that BSG has complete control of the entire supply chain from bale receipt and storage to shipping of finished goods in one location.

2014 Malting Barley Crop Report

In this report, BSG President Ian Ward takes a look at the European and North American crops, contextualizing them into a global outlook, and touching on malt quality, yields, economics, and what brewers can expect.  This year's report has a wealth of knowledge, and we highly encourage brewers and brewery staff to review the report.

To see the full report, visit our Resource page here.

Also, on October 23rd 2014, Ian gave a presentation on this subject via the Brewers Association's Power Hour program.  If you are a BA member, you can access this presentation, audio and Q & A session here.
