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?
Amanda, from @greatbeeradventure is brewing beers around the state for her event @beergeekretreat and today she showed up at @norwaybrewingco and they surprised her with a 3-part brew (it ended up in three different spots for fermentation: a stainless steel vessel, a huge barrel and a tiny 5 gallon carboy.) They used 500lbs of our malt!!!!
Also: Wait till you hear about the amazing food cycle Norway Brewing has going up there!!! More details soon.
We made it over the halfway point to the weekend! Anyone have weekend plans to pop into some breweries? How about our buddies at @navigationbrewingco? (They're known to use our malt in some of their beers!)
Such a great time at the Great Falls Brewfest today! We had five breweries enter our contest (brew an amazing beer using our malts!) and @bearbonesbeer won! ( By one vote! It was ridiculously close. ) Thank you to our raffle winner from last year who rocked her winnings! We truly appreciate you representing local! We also want to congratulate Shannon McNally who won #blueox swag, just for drinking beer (and picking 2 favorites.) See you all again next year!
Another beautiful weekend on tap! So many things to choose from tomorrow: @allagashbrewing's #streetfair , @baxterbrewing's #greatfallsbrewfest or perhaps take a scenic drive and visit a couple breweries like our pals at @norwaybrewingco!

Who stopped by the @craftmalting booth down at #craftbrewersconference2017 ? Joel and David were helping out with the steep method of sensory tasting. Did you get a chance to try? Who is interested in trying one out?

Had a great partial staff meeting at @flightdeckbrewingco today and what staff meeting at a brewery would be complete without trying a few beers? All of Flight Decks beers are brewed using 100% #BlueOxMalthouse for the base malts! #Cheers
the initial growth phase of the acrospires and rootlets right after the rupture of the grain’s seed coat during the malting process. The seed coat consists of the testa and pericarp layers. These layers protect the kernel’s enzyme-containing aleuron layer, which, in turn, envelops the endosperm
Two years ago today this sign was ready to adorn the front of our building in Lisbon Falls, Maine!
Thank you to the brewers, distillers, and growers that we have connected with in the past two years! And cheers to all of those we will connect with this year and all the years to come!
