Root Shoot Colorado Malts

Craft beer deserves craft malt, and it all begins with a great harvest. Malting barley has been part of our harvest for more than 40 years, originally growing for Coors and Budweiser. Now, Root Shoot Malting is here to provide an unmatched consistency and quality for your brewing ingredients. We offer an increasing selection of craft base and specialty malts, including raw grains to give your beer and spirit exactly the flavor you desire.  

All of our barley is 100% Colorado malt. We planted, tended, harvested and malted all of our barley here on our family farm for brewers and distillers alike. Each and every bag is filled at our malt house with unparalleled care in the brewing and distilling industries.

Wholesale craft malt and grain orders for breweries and distilleries can be made by milled or unmilled 50-pound bags or 2250-pound super sacks. Homebrewers can purchase our malt at these locations.
