Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
We’re particularly thankful to be in a position to encourage farmers and brewers to operate more sustainably. Our organic malts wouldn’t be grown without the passionate, #sustainablefarmers that caretake the land, and similarly they wouldn’t be sold without #craftbrewers like yourself that want quality local products.
We’re thankful to be a part of that relationship. www.admiralmaltings.com
T-shirt Tuesday is back, and so is the monster by popular demand! TONIGHT! $20 bucks for a custom, super limited, craft-printed tee by @TheFrenchPrints + a pint of your choice may be the best deal #Alameda . We only print a few, so head over early.

Our Malty Amber Ale (MAA) is our ‘sandbox’ for malt and maltsters. Version 1.4 features Cookie malt from @viking_malt. Viking Malt dates back to 1883 and was founded in Finland. Their Cookie malt brings a pleasant profile of freshly baked cookies and aromas with hints of popcorn and biscuits.

Now on tap: @therarebarrel Small Acts (barrel-aged grisette)! This limited release beer comes from one of the country’s preeminent sour beer makers. You don’t see Rare Barrel out in the wild very often.
They specifically crafted a simpler grain bill (including Admiral Pils) for this grisette-style beer and fermented it with various saison yeast strains before moving to barrels with a mixed culture. Keg-conditioned with a mixture of saison yeast, Small Acts has a kiss of tartness that compliments notes of lemongrass, cracker, and lemon pith, therake.admiralmaltings.com 📸 by @roshambo74
We love seeing the release of collaborations Dave has done! He and @beershedbubba brewed this Hoppy Golden Ale with a grain bill 100% #AdmiralMaltings . Check out Gold Kan @oldkanbeer! #MaltMatters 📸 by @beershedbubba
We got to finally visit @admiralmaltings over the weekend - CALIFORNIA GROWN, FLOOR MALTED GRAINS!! And, of course, we brought home several bags of grain for a special brew coming soon.

Missed yesterday’s tour? Free tours happen every Wed., Sat. and Sun., and be sure to swing back around after the tour to dive into the wide range of flavors craft-brewers are able to coax out of the barley malted just next door. #MaltMatters#NoMaltNoBeer RSVP #linkinbio 👆
NEW BEER: Hops On Hops! Fresh hop Pale Ale
Fresh-hop season is the best time of year for hop-nerds in the Pacific Northwest. "Why do you call it fresh-hop?" Because the whole-cone Chinook, Columbus, and Centennial hops used in the hopback were literally picked by @hop_meister in the wee hours of the morning and then driven some 2 1/2 hours over to us for immediate use. This process provides for signature fresh-hop flavors of grass, hop oils, and plant-y green/earthy notes. We used Maden Voyage malt from @admiralmaltings out of Alameda, CA and malted pale rice from #eckertmalting out of Chico, CA, so this is without a doubt the most seasonal/regional beer we will brew all year. Come get a taste of Northern California!
Also of note:
-Anxiety JalaPils(Jalapeño Pils) is on and it is 🔥💯🔥
-@eltaquero bringing tacos y quesadillas at 6pm
-@geekswhodrinktrivia at 7pm
It was a lot of fun showing our #EastBay friends @thegoodhop around our floor-malt facility.
Free malt house tours are every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. RSVP #linkinbio 👆 and swing by to learn not only why #MaltMatters , but why our small batch malts are so special. #NoMaltNoBeer
