USDA Certified Organic

Briess became the first malting company to gain organic certification when that was achieved in 1990.  Our organic certifying agency is Oregon Tilth.  Briess organic ingredients are USDA Certified Organic, which means they meet all requirements set forth by the USDA National Organic Program.

Briess is also a member of the Organic Trade Association.  In addition to our standard line of certified organic malts and ingredients, Briess can produce any malt and many ingredients as certified organic depending on availability of raw materials.  Minimum order size and lead time are required for custom orders.  Organic products are segregated from conventional malts.

Kosher Certified

All ingredients produced at Briess manufacturing plants and contracted plants are Kosher Certified.  Certifying agency is United Mehadrin Kosher (UMK).  The agency certifies that all Briess manufacturing plants are Kosher, and that Briess purchases only Kosher-Certified raw materials.  Kosher certificates are available upon request from your Customer Service representative.



All barley for Briess malt used in beer and spirits is Non-GMO.  Briess has relationships with over 300 growers in the Bighorn Basin region of Wyoming and Montana, which provides a consistent supply of the highest quality barley.  We work with our growers starting with the seed program, which ensures only Non-GMO barley is grown and supplied to our malt plants.

Made in the U.S.A.

Briess is proud that all our manufacturing facilities are located in the United States, which provides a higher level of quality assurance and a shorter supply chain. Briess has a highly committed team of experienced operators at all of our facilities, which are located in Chilton and Manitowoc, Wisconsin.
