Episode 129 – Awarding Malt

We talk a lot about hops, but without great malt, hops would make a poor, bitter salad. In this episode, we talk to Jesse Bussard the Executive Director of the North American Craft Maltsters Guild to talk all things malty. If you love great craft beer, then you should be excited about the future of great craft malt!
