The link between the farmer and the brewer, Albertan maltster shares his story

This week on Village Radio, Dave Kelly sits down with local maltster Matt Hamill to talk about how his passion for malting has led to a creative life.

Hamill and his family started Red Shed Malting, a local company that takes barley from their family farm and malts it for all of Alberta’s craft breweries to use. Listen to how the company started and how it continues to be an important member of the province’s brewing scene.
