Governor Bullock Celebrates Launch of Montana Craft Malt

BUTTE – Governor Steve Bullock today celebrated the completion of construction of Montana Craft Malt, a facility that will produce 10,000 tons of malt per year from world-class Montana-grown barley.

“It’s no secret that Montana’s craft beer industry is thriving, and the state’s growers continue to produce some of the highest quality grain in the world,” Governor Bullock said. “The Montana Craft Malt facility will capitalize on both strengths to help the state’s breweries deliver products that are made in Montana from seed to a pint glass and elevate Montana grown products to an international level.”
