The concept of Red Shed malting started as a small seed, when Joe started brewing small batches of beer. It took root through numerous conversations at the family dinner table and was nourished by our desire to taste our own barley in Joe’s beer.
The history of the Hamill family growing barley in Alberta dates back to 1929. It began when Bernard Hamill moved his wife Madge and six young children from Ireland to Penhold, Alberta.
