In 1934, the very year that the Twenty-First Amendment to the United States Constitution repealed Prohibition, a group of prominent brewers of the northwestern states formed Great Western Malting in Vancouver, Washington.
Over- the next five decades Great Western continued to grow in size and output, adding five new malt houses and a whole series of grain elevators to meet the rising demand for malt. A roast house, producing a full line of 2-Row Crystal malts, was added in 1997 to better meet the needs of the craft brewing industry.
Today, the Great Western tradition of malting the finest western states two-row barley continues in Vancouver, Washington as well as the company’s Pocatello, Idaho malthouse.
