@steve_gbc is dying for you to pounce on this Colorado Fresh Hopped Amber at @gristbrewingco! This beer was made with ALL Colorado ingredients... local malt from @rootshootmalting, hops from @highaltitudehops even locally sourced yeast from @whitelabsyeast. This beer will be flowing TONIGHT! Get down to either location and get yourself a pint before Steve-O drinks it all!
So fresh and so clean, clean! Lookout for @upslope 's latest Tap Room Series beer, #FreshHop Red IPA.
This beaut was brewed with 500 lbs of #ColoradoGrown Nugget & Cascade hops from @highwirehops in Paonia + premium #Colorado malts from Root Shoot Malting and Proximity Malt to impart light caramel notes to pair with the resinous citrus character of the outrageous hop load. A truly local IPA - #drinkfresh !
We are very excited to share this news. This tasty & smooth Chancellors Malt Whiskey from Hudson Valley Distillers, LLC is the first whiskey ever made using our Hudson Valley Malt. When we opened our Malthouse in 2015 these guys made whiskey with one of our first batches. Thank you Hudson Valley Distillers for your support and for sourcing local ingredients for your sprits. We appreciate it. Cheers! #craftmalting#whisky#whiskey#tastenewyork
We were so honored to take part in the Bounty and Brews food and beer pairing last night hosted at @bathgardencenter by the wonderful @fortifiedcollaborations. What a perfect night to celebrate #community , #craft and #locality .
WHO is Root Shoot's farmer? You've met Todd, but do you know his dad, Steve? The Olander Farm has been in the family since 1926. Steve makes every effort to nurture the family's farming knowledge, help maintain traditional values, and provide the right resources to future generations. For those of us that work in acres, not hours (and to our entire farm-hand team!), we thank YOU! #thankafarmer#NationalFarmersDay
@guanellapassbrewery has a full grain room today! They're comin' down the mountain for @greatamericanbeerfestival so go say hi at the "Meet the Brewer" section and try one of their Root Shoot beers! #GABF
Ours #cows are in the moooo-d for malt!
Nothing goes to waste at Root Shoot.
On our family farm, #sustainable#agriculture isn't an option, it's a necessity. Did you know... all of the water used at the #malthouse is #recycled back into the fields that we irrigate? Our cows also feed on malt rootlets and any batches that don't meet our quality standards.
Cheers to great friends and great beers at @coloradoplus for the SOWN II tapping last night. Thanks to @troubadourmaltings for sowing the seeds of engagement, value, and innovation in the #stateofcraftbeer supply chain with us. If we all talk about, if we all ask questions about where and WHO raw materials come from, we change the conversation.
One of the #Colorado beer community's greatest advocates, @brewtographyproject, is showing off his fine art at "The Brewtography Project | Meet the Artist" at Hotel Teatro this evening. Don't miss it, folks! Click link in bio to vote for his photo!

@drydockbrewing 's Fresh Hop IPA releases tomorrow @ 3pm! Fresh Chinook, Cadcade, and Nugget hops from Highewire Hops (plus a few of their own freshies) were added within 24 hrs. off the vine. Plus, they used fantastic local malted barley from @rootshootmalting to make this an 100% Colorado Fresh Hop IPA: Floatin' on The Freshies 😍😍 #coloradocraftbeer#freshhopipa#hops#ipa#craftbeer#craftbrewery#drinklocal
Friends! We LOVE this action photo, snapped by @brewtographyproject, so much that we submitted it for the CLAAS Life calendar contest! Take a quick sec to vote for it, and our #Farmer , Todd Olander (via link in bio). #FunFact : Did you know our #FamilyFarm partnered with @_claas_ (the world's leading manufacturers of agricultural engineering equipment) in 1996, bringing Claas' very FIRST piece of equipment to Colorado?! http://woobox.com/vvebav/gallery/B5M26Opa-7w
What a fun day building bikes at @two22brew for @wishforwheels! We were honored to donate, and our friends at this community-focused brewery helped build 45 bicycles for children! The bikes will be delivered on Monday! #community#craftbeercommunity
I've seen a few Malt Houses and it's really cool to see a old feed/grain building being repurposed into a Malting facility here on the Eastern Shore. Will give farmers another option. #craftmalting#delmarvafarms#craftbeer @proximitymalt_keith
New Pull-Apart Bread - available at @arcanarestaurant! It's a pumpernickel bread made with Olander Farms rye and wheat flours, topped with celery, caraway, and fennel seed and served with smoked butter. Fall is here y'all - at least in the form of this bread!
#TBT to a chilly November day that marked my first visit to Kellogg Biological Station in Hickory Corners, Michigan. Dr. Brook Wilke, seen here, is showing me what would become the site of extensive spring malting barley trials in the spring of 2016! KBS' malting barley research has greatly expanded since then to include winter, spring barley, and even seed production of a 100+ year old heritage line: Spartan!
LOVE getting surprises in the mail! Thanks for the "Get Out!" crowlers, @mountaintapbrewery! We're lovin' this Belgian farmhouse-style saison made with our wheat and Odyssey Pilsner. "Get Out" and enjoy the land this weekend!
Grown on our family farm, Olander Farms, harvested by our friends @maxlinebrewing, and for you to enjoy. ❤🌽🚜 Visit the Freedge at @fococafe or stop by Maxline and enjoy a complimentary, hand-picked bundle of sweet corn! Get 'em while they last!
In honor of Colorado's rich #beer culture, @highhopsbrewery crafted Redemption, an India Red Ale. This limited edition, small batch #craftbeer is as inspired and colorful as the state it was brewed in. #Cheers to the creative team at High Hops for #supportinglocal#craftmaltsters !
We're performing endosperm hydration testing this morning and I thought I'd share the results. On the left is a poorly hydrated barley kernel, whereas the kernel on the right is fully hydrated. 100 kernels of steeped barley are immersed in boiling water for 60 seconds, removed, and dissected. Hydrated areas of the endosperm appear translucent, while starchy, dry areas look white and... starchy. Thorough hydration is necessary for satisfactory malt modification. Remember, total moisture content doesn't necessarily indicate overall hydration!
Hurricane Harvey is devastating much of the Houston, TX region. They received a record 39.82 inches of rainfall over the weekend and the worst is not yet over. Continued rain is expected for the next nine days.
In response, @candaid is moving to quickly distribute 88,800 cans of clean drinking water to victims in need, in partnership with @oskarblues and the Ball Corporation. They are also rallying donations to support a CAN'd Aid Foundation volunteer team that will help dig Texas out post-flood.
Root Shoot Malting donated to this volunteer team... Wanna' help? See link in profile and know that funds raised will directly help those in need!
The House That Beer Built, NE Session IPA, is flowing at @weldwerks! The best part? 100% of the proceeds are donated to @greeley_habitat_for_humanity_ benefiting The House That Beer Built. We're happy to be a part of such a cool collab!
Fresh hops, fresh malt. Yes, please!
Colorado grown and malted barley from @rootshootmalting , Colorado grown Chinook wet hops from @highwirehops , super happy wee beasties from @inland_island , and Colorado River water. Going to be a great beer! #craftbeer#brewerdoers
So many amazing things have happened this summer! We've had amazing visitors like @admiralmaltings, @mainebrewers #summersession was great, our #fieldday with UMaine Cooperative was fabulous, such flavorful beers have been made with our malts and today there was an #eclipse ! How can this summer get better?
Our friends at @paradoxbeercompany are producing one-of-a-kind, unflinchingly wayward beers! We're pretty keen on the Future Knowledge No. 7, using our Odyssey Pilsner and raw wheat. Grab a friend and head to their tasting room in Divide. #cheers
