Bear Branch Malt is an integral part of our 4th generation family farm located in the rolling hills of Carroll County Maryland. In addition to malting we raise cattle, sheep, grow small grains, and hops with a focus on regenerative agriculture. We partner with local growers and are able to source all of our raw grains from within a 20 mile radius. We offer a variety of base malts and specialties including Vienna, Munich, Golden Honey, Double Honey, Caramel Rye, and more.

Craft malt is an important connection between the community and the land around us. For me the most rewarding aspect of local craft malt is that it allows brewers, distillers and artisans to develop products that are unique to that place and time. Historically beer was made from malt and hops grown near the brewery with water from the ground or a spring nearby and the brewers invented styles that matched the ingredients they had available. Craft brewers of today are finally able to create styles unique to their region that positively impact their local agricultural community and share the story of that impact with their customer.
