135 Years in the Making

Making the industry’s best malts and brewing ingredients takes time. In our case…about 150 years. That's when the Briess malting tradition began, in 1876 when Ignatius Briess—a grain exchanger—began malting barley grown in the fertile Moravian valleys of his homeland Czechoslovakia.


Little did Ignatius know that his handcrafted traditions would cross the Atlantic to a small town in Wisconsin…to be handed down to generations of family members just as obsessed with quality malt as he was.


Today, Briess Malt & Ingredients Co. is a recognized leader in developing and producing handcrafted specialty malts for the American Craft Beer industry.  Producing more styles of malt than any other malting company in the world, Briess sets the benchmark for unique flavor, color and performance in handcrafted specialty malts.
