Local tastes better

Acres to Ales is a groundbreaking craft beer supply chain that starts with superior LCS craft barley varieties grown by local farmers. Grain is transformed into flavorful malt by local maltsters and then into truly local beers by brewers. Malting barley stays in the neighborhood from grain to glass, giving brewers unprecedented control over the quality and flavor of their creations.
