Skagit Valley Malting
Our Avenue Craft line uses the highest quality simple ingredients that are regionally milled and produced. A great ingredient and company is Skagit Valley Malting.
Skagit Valley Malting was created to be a farmer benefit back in 2010. Given the unique coastal growing region and the lack of malt-quality raw grain infrastructure, a tremendous amount of ingenuity and financial investment was required to reach our ultimate goal of exploring non-commodity cereal grain varietals that presented best-fit opportunities for our partner farms, malthouse, and brewery/distillery/bakery customers.
Today, we are the largest craft malthouse in the United States, and we continue to grow rapidly. Our farmers are turning a once lost crop year (of growing cereal grains for healthy soil rotation) into a real cash-crop. And our customers get to buy local grains they never had access to previously, providing real economic opportunity for everyone involved… which strengthens farmland viability, adds living-wage jobs to Skagit County, and provides our customers with a quality local product they never had access to before.
