Our Story is Unique

Our local Barley to Beer story starts at our family roots!

Origin Malting & Brewing Co. is a local family run business in Strathmore, AB. We take Alberta malting barley, known to be the best barley in the world, grown on our local 5th generation family farm, to produce high quality malt and supply craft breweries with full traceability back to the exact field it was harvested from!  We proudly run a local "barley to beer" brewery producing our own craft beer to showcase our craft malt. Origin is unique by being one of the only Canadian companies to grow, malt and brew as one company to make quality craft malt and fantastic tasting craft beer right here in Strathmore. We pride ourselves in supporting and fostering a relationship between the farmer, the maltster, and the brewer.
