A prime barley growing region.

Outstanding in our Field

Wineries often describe the terroir of their grapes. A terroir describes how a regions climate, soil condition and terrain affects the taste of the product. It’s not a term used very often in the beer industry, but at Red Shed Malting, we believe it should be.

Alberta has ideal growing conditions for the most sought after barley varieties in the world. It is home to two industrial malt plants, and they chose Alberta because the rich soil and cooler climates allow farmers to grow premium barley. Our climate allows for minimal use of pesticides and pre-harvest chemicals, while providing storage conditions that help prevent insects from entering the grain. Combining our quality barley with the elite craftsmanship in malting, brewing and distilling in the province, Alberta has the necessary ingredients to create a perfect beer or spirit.

Western Canada is home to some of the top barley breeders, research organizations, universities programs, and agriculture and health departments in the world. All of whom are continually developing and promoting malt barley varieties that make better beer.
