Group celebrates 10 years of local sourcing #maltingbarley

Set up by Adams & Howling, H Banham and Crisp Malting Group to improve local sourcing and with its focus on malting barley, the ABC Group has played a key role in the success of Britain’s beer

sector, delegates attending a recent seminar at Limagrain heard.

 

H Banham director, Tom Rivett, said: “Malt produced from the ABC growers’ barley makes a significant contribution to Britain’s brewing and distilling. Crisp also exports substantial quantities of malt, so all over the world people are tasting our Norfolk grain as they sip their beer or whisky.”

Crisp Malting Group director, Bob King, said that this year the ABC Group’s production is 41% winter barley and 59% spring barley. Flagon and Venture are the dominant winter varieties, with a new variety, Craft, being trialled for approval in 2017.

 

Spring varieties are predominantly Concerto, Odyssey and some proanthocyanidin-free Husky, with Laureate also going on trial in 2017.
