Deer Creek Malthouse provides local craft brewers and distillers with high quality, sustainably farmed, artisan malts that bring truly local character and innovation to the region’s craft beverage tradition. Founded in 2012, they are committed to supplying hand crafted, traditional floor malted products with terroir that can be enjoyed by the craft beverage community… sounds like a great short-form documentary to us!
This short film is a project inspired by our summer intern, Austin Smock, a Cinematography major from Temple University. Austin wanted to learn more about the malting process so he reached out to Mark and got the ball rolling on this artist profile film.
Together, we arrived at the crack of dawn to ensure we saw all of the key steps of the malting process. Unlike a lot of large malting plants, every part of the malting process at Deer Creek is done by hand which is something we appreciate.
Oh, and did we mention they are awesome dudes? Check out some of their fun antics on their Instagram page.
Cheers to great people and a great product!
