Meeting the demand for a growing industry
U.S. barley growers plant approximately 3.5 million acres of barley every year, producing 200 million bushels. More than 75% of this production becomes malting barley. Malting barley seed grown in the United States lays the foundation for more than 190 million barrels of beer annually.
The explosion of craft beer in the United States has created a new kind of demand on raw material producers and the supply chains in which they operate. Until recently, the most basic raw material used in all North American brewing operations, barley, was essentially the same for all parties at the table. The American Malting Barley Association (AMBA), the Brewers Association (BA) and the North American Craft Maltsters Guild (CMG) are actively investing resources to help identify barley varieties that excel in all-malt styles of beer.
With exceptional yield in the field backed by high extract in the malthouse, malts sourced with LCS malting barley seed are an excellent choice for brewers and distillers alike.
