See where your malt is grown
More than 300 growers in Northern Wyoming and Southern Montana grow malting barley for Briess. We selected this one-of-a-kind barley growing region because of the extremely high-quality malting barley it produces, the diverse varieties grown, and the fact that Bighorn growers love barley and enjoy growing it. The two-day Bighorn Barley Tour will be held at the peak of the barley growing season, when fields are ripening and the Briess Elevator in Ralston, WY, is ready to start receiving truckloads of freshly harvested barley.
