Earlier this spring, we sent 2,400 Brewers across the country packets of raw Merit 57 barley to try out their green thumb and grow their own barley (GYOB). If you received a packet of Briess Barley, we’d love to see your golden product.

As harvest season is upon us, the planters of barley at brewery storefronts and home gardens should be bright, plump, and golden by now. We would love to see your photos of barley by emailing them to us at info@BrewingWithBriess.com or sharing them on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram with the hashtag #BriessGYOB.

Here are a few photos submitted early this year. And remember, if you capture a stunning image of your barley at your brewery, it just might end up in our 2018 Growers to Brewers calendar, which could land you some iconic Briess Chocolate Malted Milk Balls and Visa Gift Card.
