Minch Malt is also a member of Origin Green (Bord Bia’s Sustainability Programme) which mirrors the core values of what we do here at Kildare Brewing Company. Minch Malt work with farmers from all over Ireland but their core suppliers would be from the Kildare/Carlow/Wexford region & that means alot to us here that we are in some way helping & supporting local jobs. We get all our malt whole which allows us to crush the grain fresh on site, thus guaranteeing that you the customer is getting the freshest produce into your beer.
