This is pretty cool news. I know a lot of the local breweries have used Riverbend before but it’s sweet to see them getting hooked up with a big brewery. Its also nice that New Belgium is investing in the local economy this way. Hopefully they continue to do so along with the other big boys that just moved into town.
"Having been grown by farmers in North Carolina for over 200 hundred years and hand crafted utilizing traditional floor malting techniques, the Carolina Rye malt embodies the terroir of the southeast,” said Riverbend co-founder Brian Simpson. “Riverbend Malt House is excited that New Belgium will bring this taste of the South to so many new palates."
