In 1995, the North Country Malt supply opened for business behind our founder’s house in a lawn mower shed with six bags of grain, a homebrew grist mill, a cargo van, and no customers. Today, we are pleased to call hundreds of breweries and distilleries throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico “Country Malt Group customers”. As a North American based distribution company, the Country Malt Group is committed to bringing you a wide product range, a high level of service and competitive pricing at a warehouse location near you. With over 100 years of combined brewery and brewing experience, our dedicated sales and support staff understand the importance of excellent ingredients, product knowledge, and the expertise which are involved in making great beers and spirits. We hope that our web site will aid you in finding just what you need. After you have had an opportunity to review what we have to offer, we encourage you to contact us with any questions. With our distribution warehouses located strategically throughout the United States and Canada and our strategic alliance with our distribution partners located around the world, we are never more than a phone call away from your brewery or distillery location. Thank you for your interest in the Country Malt Group. We look forward to providing our services to your brewery, distillery, or cidery!
Our Homebrew segment was originally founded by Frank Steinbart in 1918 as the F.H. Steinbart Company. The Steinbart Wholesale division was opened in September of 1994 and was sold to Brewcraft Ltd. of New Zealand in July 2005. Since the beginning, our company has been a mainstay in the home brewing and brewery equipment industry throughout the Pacific Northwest. We take pride in offering excellent customer service and a high level of quality in all of our products. We use organic products and follow environmentally safe processes whenever possible. With over 100 years of combined brewery and brewing experience, our dedicated sales and support staff understand the importance of excellent ingredients, product knowledge, and the expertise which are involved in making great beers and spirits. In 2010, Brewcraft USA became a subsidiary of Great Western Malting Company. In 2019, Brewcraft USA merged with Country Malt Group and continues to supply a wide variety of premium quality local, imported, and specialty ingredients and equipment for the production of beer, wine, and spirits.
