Straight out of the brewing industry Aaron brings a wealth of knowledge, of both malting and brewing. As a home brewer turned professional, Aaron understands what a craft brewery is looking for in their malts. With a need for perfecting what isn’t quite right, Aaron will be exactly what is needed to create an uncompromising, quality artisan malt.
During his time as brewmaster for Ribstone Creek in Edgerton, AB they won numerous awards for their beer. In 2015 they won a silver at the Canadian Brewing Awards for Old Man Winter Porter, a huge win for their small brewery.
Aaron hopes to continue to play a big part in the brewing world by providing the highest quality malts as well as creating new and exciting ingredients not normally available!
Alex may not brew beer but for as long as she has known Aaron she has been a part of his brewing. From bottling homebrew in their kitchen to helping can or keg the commercial batches, she has been there.
Determined as she likes to say…stubborn as Aaron would call her, she is not foreign to hard work. A full time x-ray technologist, chaser of two rowdy boys and one equally stubborn, er determined, little girl. While managing the family, she is also a successful photographer, so her ability to organize and manage tasks are on point!
Alex will hold many roles in the malt house, office admin, customer relations and malting as well as micro-managing the maltsters-in-training AKA the kids.
We are looking forward to building relations with farmers and brewers alike!
